OK.....EYE -2-D2, the kids and stuff

well, things have been interesting since Boy Wonder hit town.  He flew in from Oregon Wednesday nigh and boy, are his arms tired!
Seriously folks.
Everything seems to get interesting when he is back in town.
well... he flew in with his Buddy Jim.... they have known each other since sixth grade, and are now roommates and working together at the Rogue Brewing Co in Newport OR.  SO..... They both worked Tuesday then drove the two and a half hours to Portland, partied with friends and caught the 6am flight out, landed in Mil-Walky, partied with more friends ....and eventually ended up here in beautiful downtown Wisconsyn.  The guys were in town for Adam and Kelly's wedding.  Adam was Max's roommate for three years and I guess they had a good gathering.  The wedding was at a State Park on the north end of the lake.  The had a big pavilion, a blue grass band... and a bratwurst, hamburger, Cole slaw and potato salad.  After wards the Bride and Groom and about 35 friends just..... camped out.  Wonder Boy video taped the event.  I can't wait to see the results.

 The evil eye thingee is progressing.  Paper work, paper work paper work.  It isn't all bad.  It does seem that some help will be available, I really don't know how much yet.  My friend, Eye Doc Tom has been real good sending off paper where ever it is needed.  IT IS DEPRESSING, THOUGH.  I am having decent luck selling off some of the old collectibles on ebay.  The night vision is for shit.  Twilight either finds me home or close to it, or with someone who is driving.

I guess it is what it is and we just keep on keeping on.

Max thinks it is really funny to flip me the Bird and then ask, from a distance, how many fingers he is holding up.
"Can you see it now?"
"Can you see it if I get closer?"

of course, his sister has something to say.........
" Max.... you're disgusting."

ya, but he is kinda funny.  He offered to buy me a 'Seeing-Eye Parakeet'

humor helps..... whatever happens.

Hey, the "Seeing Eye Parakeet" thing is pretty funny. You could do a drunken pirate impression as you weave between tables at restaurants.

I've been checking back in over here from time to time, hoping the news would be a little brighter for you. Glad to know you've got friends, family, and medical pros helping you out.

It's rarely as bleak as it seems, especially if you let folks know your hurtin'.

Best to you, man. Hope you keep us posted on the progress, or lack thereof.

It doesn't hurt to be a wise-acre in times likes these. I agree to that "it is what it is" and the wringing of hands over it won't really change things.

Keep your spirits up and let's hope for progress.

In the meantime, what flavor is your beer and who's that on the juke box?

Hang in there buddy!

Squatlo....been filing out a ton of papers! Having a lot of fine print does'nt help. and a seeing-eye gerbil sounds like a really bad idea. Better the parakeet.

Larry, had been drinking the Ranger IPA from New Belgium out of Fort Collins.. but I am on a new austerity program. Unless someone buys, I ain't drinking. & you can never go wrong with Jimi on the jukebox. Oh... and thanks...much

Dear Bujm... thanks I will try to post more.

Have you thought about a seeing-eye bear? No one will mess with you then.

Youre a mean old man for failing to do as I asked about the address, but I have found it anyway--finally have opened every stinking box from the move now and am "officially" unpacked. Nice that your kids are around. I'm sure they make a difference. Stop being a horses ass and let your friends help out your dummy. I mean it. So there.

Randal... with my luck it would be a Chicago Bear.

Libs :) it is on the right above the blog list. You are kind.

Sherry....But but but... I have soooooo much experience being a horse's ass... I did put up the PP is on the right above blog roll ---- I don't know how to make it bigger.

Glad to hear the boy's been by and cracking wise as well. Laughing is good so long as help is on the way. I'm sure Max and your daughter have a fascinating relationship :-)

Stay frosty and remember to keep us posted.
