GOOD MORNING!
Dufus just got dive bombed, Ha, Ha, Ha!
Every morning, this year, three wild turkeys come down from their roost and fly past the corner of the house. They come through at about four feet off the ground and just miss the house. Well Dufus just went out to get some firewood....He must have ducked just in time; there wasn't a crash. But bad words were flying all over in the house!

Today I am doing nothing, but sitting here in pain. Always willing to help a friend in need, on Friday I over did it and now I'm paying the price.

Friday, about 9, I get a call from my neighbor Mike, he wrecked his car on the way too work. They have a half mile of road they are paving, so a pilot car leads you onto an two track road to go around that area (still doing finish dirt work, but almost complette.). Employees don't wait for the pilot car, they simply driven down the road, specially since there is nothing for equipment up there, if the employees are just coming to work. Well, the night before, when Mike left, there was a grader on the road doing some finish work. On Friday morning, Mike headed down that road following another employee and suddenly the guy in front disappeared. Mike hit his brakes just in time to make the front end dip as he drove off the bank.

Seems that the night before, the grader operator found a soft spot, so they worked overtime and dug out the soft spot. 4ft deep, 60ft long. Total of three employees drove off that drop off before it was done. When you drive a Dodge Neon with two 250 lb men in the front seat, off of that, it tends to render the auto inoperable. Nobody hurt,, but 3 vehicles messed up.

So anyhow, Mike calls and asks for help. I broke into his house and found his truck keys but couldn't find shop keys. So then u broke into his shop so I could get the 170 pound hitch extension for his truck. Her has a huge camper on the truck, so Mike made a 4 ft extension system to attach so he can pull a trailer. I wrestled that thing onto the truck.

The random axle trailer was still loaded from the labor day weekend trip too the mountains. The wagon that we pull behind the team, and all the gear, was on the trailer and still lashes down. So I had to get all of that off the trailer. That wagon weighs close to 1500 lbs. I got it all unloaded and hooked up.

Drove down to Spotted Horse where they were. The car still ran, just hemouraging fluids everywhere. So we were able to drive it on the trailer. Brought it and Mike home. Didn't get home until after 9. Totally wore out.

Saturday morning, woke up at 5 in severe pain in my legs. Went ahead and took a couple Hydrocodone and just stayed in bed. After two hours, the pills had done nothing to ease the pain, so I thought I'd get up, get some movement in them, maybe that would help. When I got up, I quickly realized I couldn't put any weight on my right leg (leg that I normally wear the brace on). I was able to reach my crutches and get to the bathroom, just 12 ft from my bed. After limping around the cabin til about noon, I headed over to the shop. Took me 15 minutes, with my cane to get the 150 ft to the shop.

The shop used to be a three stall paint and body shop for the previous owner, so it is well insulated and its got the holes in the floor for pipes to hook chain falls to pull metal, be it fenders or frames or ???

We had to pull metal, just to get clearance to remove radiator, condensor (A/C). Got everything pulled, run to town and got new radiator and some fittings. Believe it or not, radiator was in stock, $91. I couldn't believe it. Out came the sledge hammer, 4 different chainfalls, wedges, etc. By 7pm last night, we fired up the Neon and took it for a test drive. No leaks, no heating problems, good to go. We got on the internet and I found the entire front bumper, side flashing pieces, marker lights, and chin cowling for less than $200 total. FedEx will deliver this week. Son the car has no front plastic bumper cover or side pieces, but headlights and blinkers are intact, so he can drive it to work.

So last night I finished up late, but was able to sleep. This morning, I am in so much pain, that the only thing I can operate is my recliner. Its noon and I haven't even been able to cook breakfast yet.

Way too much for somebody in my condition, but a friend needed help. I know that Mike would do the same for me, at the drop of a hat.

Damm!
Take care now. Wish we had good friends half as dedicated as you. All I can say is what a guy! BTW, Dufus was given Hydrocodone and it didn't really help much with his pain. He also lost his appetite taking it. Partly why he lost weight.

I am prescribed 8 hydrocodone a day. 2, every 6 hours. Usually they don't he trick, but on particularly tough days, it might take an hour or two to kick in, or may fade away an hour or so be for its time to take more. Yesterday and today, they've only been about 50% effective. This afternoon has been a lot better being about 80% or better. I did get out and walk the driveway twice this afternoon, using only my cane. Didn't have to use my walker, which I am supposed to be using. Driveway is 314 ft, one way, so I put in over 1200 ft. Legs don't feel too bad tonight.

The hydrocodone isn't near as bad as what they had me on. I was taking 25 mg of Morphine every 4 hours. They finally cut me down to the 8 hydrocodone a day. hahaha Life goes on when your in the fast lane.

A good week of bird hunting. My GSP's did great, but my white male Schnitzel really took the prize! He hunted hard, got wounded in barbed wire and still kept going... He pointed at least 20 birds, some inches from his nose, some of them 30-40 yards away. He ran big, fast, pointed hard and retrieved all the downed birds. I lost zero shot birds with this guy. Super, super dog!

Proud after the day is done (3 is the limit per day)..



A nice posey by the camper-



Schnitzel in action- He lifts his rear leg when the bird is super close. This hen was an inches from his nose when he pointed it.



Can't wait to take the dogs out to work again. They get a much needed break and I have to work this week. Darn...

P.S.- Elkhunter, you need to rest and heal up. You won't be much good to friends if you run yourself dead.

Talking Made it!!

I'm finally here, made it to Laurel a week ago Friday. The trip took 5 days with a layover in Columbia, MO. Missed your town Elkhunter, took 310 through Thermop instead. I was told I would be buying a new transmission if I attempted I-90 pulling a horse trailer in my 1993 Chevy G-20! It was a fun but tough trip. I'm glad to be here! Once I have some money coming in and enough gas money, I'd love to go sightsee areas for a permanent homestead!

Blessings!
Tracey

Haha, that's one strange pointing stance

One reason he can hunt hard like that -- he's in primo condition. Some idiots starve their dogs down to bones so they're "lean for hunting" then wonder why they run out of energy so quick. If they don't have fat to burn, they burn muscle instead.

Elk, here's a trick I use to this day, suggested by my doc after shoulder surgery (4-5 years ago) which works more often than not.
Take 2 Aleve pills when you take the Hydrocodone. I was shocked at how well this worked and how long the relief lasts.
I'm at the dose of H.C. that you are and found I could cut back a bit when I added Aleve to the mix. Thankfully adding the Aleve (per package dose instructions) doesn't cause an overdose of any meds.
