 Just wanted to thank you guys for the encouragement when it was really needed. I know I went off the deep end a little there but I blame the meds. Thats one of the worse things about K stones , coming off of the meds. Truth is yes I have seen specialist and to cut through a lot of medical mumbo jumbo its crohns that causes the stones I have. But any one that has a lot of diarrhea is at risk of having them. Also the diet for diabetes is in conflict with the crohns diet and the diet that helps relieve the stones is pushed aside by the need to be able to function at all. I am also not that fond of the urinary infections that follow and the cipro that treats them. I stoped by the drug store today and got some pills to help put the bacteria back in my system. I hate yogurt. I've barfed enough. Sno, I dont have a driving instructor to help guide me when I run off the road, but I do have a good therapist that has kept me from really going over the edge for many years. She took pitty on an this old wounded warrior back when the government turned its back on him. I can call anytime I need , but I dont think I am to that point yet. I just think I'm in need of a good shot of mother natures beauty to get me back on my feet. That, lots of water ,some rest and I should be as nutty as always. After all, I have made a lot of promises to some good friends and I have to keep them . Friends that no longer have that chance to live a good life . Even when things are bad, I know how lucky I am to be here. I intend to do all I can with my life until the time comes when I join the ones that have gone before me. As it is said, " Someday I shall join them in the afterlife, but, not yet, not yet."

yeah I hear you, indeed I do, loud and clear. I too have made those promises, if in somewhat different circumstances. I rarely pass a flower by but that I must stop to smell it...there is always a host of ghosts at my shoulder to tell me off if I don't. wink

Hi Sniper I know life takes alot from us and crohn's takes more, not easy I know ,I feel sometimes that what a person puts into it is a long road and thank goodness at times we can get some breaks for awhile and a time to breathe.. comfort comes in many forms and it all is a part of being able to live with a disease. Hope your get away brings you some fun ..planning one for myself for a night..life is what we put into it... lol gail

Sniper,
 
 This was sort of a like a bump so I could click on the "Notify me of reply postings by e-mail" option below, and be alerted when somebody posted on this thread. I didn't have time to stop and post, but was reading my E-Mail while cleaning the room. Then my computer shut down, and my life got a little complicated for a moment and blah blah blah...

Now you see, I started this new post trying to keep out of trouble on the old post,, but nooooo,,old mr haven't posted in a coons age ,,VV,, comes in with some willy nilly bedazzler story and pushes the threat to the limit. As I recall he did that last time and moaned and groaned about it too. Sno, I have never bedazzeled anything in my life. Even though I have produced enough rinestones to do so. I just throw them in the driveway to fill in pot holes. Now that you will be driving you will fast learn about pot holes but I do think you have hit your share on the road of life.
Margie, You lost me there. Can you explain ?
I must give fare warning , if you want to throw stones , you have but one more day and I will be gone forever, or for a week , which ever comes first. In answer to your words sno :
They pass best over the world who trip over it quickly : for it is a bog, if we stop, we sink......Queen Elizabeth

eyes Well, I always knew we were pushing the boundaries with a 3 pager. Besides, the timing was wrong. nono Beware the Ides of March ! (But nice to see you Ides. tongue)
VV now has a new moniker; "Rhinestone Cowboy"....be sure and use it here folks ! yeah smilewinkgrin
Now would that have been the first Queen Elizabeth, Sniper ? I am well up on poetry but I've not heard that one before.
eyes Am I the only Crohnie here for whom the phrase "pot holes" creates dire thoughts of bathroom floods ?

Sno, I would say it was the first Queen Elizabeth by the eloquence of words , but do not quote me. I think it was Campbell who said , "Poetry is the eloquence of truth." I lean toward Pope, Bailey, Cecil, Campbell, Coleridge, Horace, Byron and Keats, but I do not limit myself to any . Sad to say I have but one of my own that is published in a very obscure book ,collecting dust no doubt , in a far corner of the local library or upon the overdue list. I have done not but to write my own epitaph .
Shuold we not change VV to, Rhinestone, Plowboy, by virtue of his making snowfree paths to the mailbox each day ?
Lastly, my apologies to Ides, Though my post are off topic and run long, I assure you my intent is the lifting of spirits ,,though I have failed miserably lately. But consider my time away as a reprieve. There will be one less to keep in check. But I must warn you ,my absents may not be what you expect. It may be as if I have pulled my hand quickly from a pail of water, it will not leave a hole.

i think ides' birthday is then also. so, sno, since you beat me to the 'beware' line, i'll chime in with a 'happy birthday', ides!

sniper, i know you wanna take credit for that 3 pager, but maid margarine actually started it. me thinks the snow rabbit misunderstood just whose riding vest was bedazzled. are you going to deny the 'hello kitty' vest........???? i tried to get you to not wear it that day. is it just coincidence that you are such an expert on Campbell?...........

well, i really don't mind the rain
and a smile can hide all the pain
but you're down when you're ridin' the train that's takin' the long way
and i dream of the things i'll do
with a subway token and a dollar tucked inside my shoe
there'll be a load o compromisin
on the road to my horizon
but i'm gonna be where the lights are shinin' on me

like a........................................................

i rest my case.

smhair Aargh ! I just spent most of today with that little...ditty of an earworm wriggling away in the back of my mind, got rid of it...and now it is back again ! As an apology VV, I fully expect a photo of said vest. eyes It sounds like one of the few bright investments to be seen at present...
nono As far as inspiration is concerned, I discovered the hard way a long time ago that it is not the victory that inspires, nor the nonchalantly smiling superfit hero, it is the struggling under-resourced, underqualified giving-it-all-with-no-signs-of-progress wannabe that leaves the burning feeling that if they can do that with their problems, by darn I will make an effort ! Yes, laughter has its place here in these forums, thank goodness for the wise decision that allows us OT humour posts; but in the end, knowing one another's situations and seeing how we cope, and sometimes fall and pick ourselves up, is half the battle with our deadly enemy, isn't it ? yeah
Personally I am not averse to poetry as a pick me up....(sorry, couldn't resist ! tongue)
Bailey, Cecil, Campbell - I have seen little if any of their works, I haven't even heard of Campbell. Well, just goes to show you rarely get the educashion you are ode...maybe I shouldn't have been skipping school to go read in the University library after all ! smilewinkgrin

Myyyyy my, he cant sing either . Sorry Glen, or RC or is it RP now , but I have no clue of which you speak. I have only a shirt that says rolling thunder on the back. Yea, no tags, ribbons, dodads, pins nor humorous slogans. Narey a bit of chrome that could be mistaken for a rhinestone. Unlike a certain VV rider ,of which (I DO)have pictures with all his momentous souvenirs and campaign ribbon adornment. All that and short pants too. Bare knobby knees askew for the world to see. Unlike old no nonsence Sniper who rides with jeans and a T shirt, less the winter wind blows in from Yankee land. Then it is leather and leather only. Only to defer the duck bumps.
Sno, You should know of T Campbell. A kilted poet was he. Such poems as ,Lord Ullins Daughter,,Freedom and love. Now tell me are you more into Tennyson, Browning, and Wordsworth ? What of Hugh McDiarmid. Should be up you ally.
The sunlicht still on me, you row'd in clood
We look upon each ither noo like hills
Across a valley. I'm nae mair your son.
It is my mind, nae son o' yours , that looks,
And the great darkness o' your death comes up
And equals it across the way.
A livin' man upon a died man thinks
And ony sma'er thocht's impossible. Now mr spell checker is going to have a field day with that one.

Sniper,
   You can count on us to keep that Rhinestone Plowboy in check. It's kinda ironic that after the ornets return to N.O., OKC consoles itself by acquiring a NBA team that they promptly name The Thunder? You wear what on your back, Sniper? I'm not a pro B-Ball fan, but this seems crazy!

Sno,

   21,000 acres burned in prairie fires today in western Oklahoma. Today 3 members of 1 family died in a house fire. 2 days ago a firefighter collapsed and died working an apartment fire in south Oklahoma City, after entering an adjoining apartment trying to free a handicapped lady who was on oxygen. Please keep our firefighters, and those Australisn firefighters in your toughts and prayers.
   Sometimes we get reminders that Oklahoma is desert that alternates with being a flood plain. Mother Nature flexes her muscle often here to show us who is boss. I'm still a little freakish about this storm season. The tropical spring winds coming from the south off the golf of Mexico, feel like I am 50 miles inland, not 950. VERY Hot and Humid, and the Polar air is very cold when the Arctic fronts come through. It has already been an EXTREME year for weather, in a place known for it's extreme weather.

Yes Margie, Firefighters and Coastguard personnel are two categories of people who can have my seat any time, and I will take my hat off to them as I stand up.
rolleyes Australia is the canary in the coal mine, and as it drops off its perch central continental America had better watch out. My instinct is that there needs to be a lot of selective logging in old growth forests, not a popular idea amongst greens ! But the way the Northern arboreal zone has been drying and dying out, future fires ain't looking pretty.
Unlike VV, who it seems may have some kind of susceptibility to visual voodoo. Can one be banned from an internet forum on the basis of appearance, or successful prosecutions by the fashion police ? This is just an Ide-all thought... wink Methinks this is unknown territory he is venturing into....or thin ice, skating onto....or spilt diesel, sliding over....you get the drift.
I had a wonderful post in reply to Sniper's poetic soliloquy, but as I pressed "Send" my ISP decided to drop the connection. cry Lost forever - all those wonderful puns...literary quotes from the greatest poets...the erudite nerdiness (whatever "erudite" is, I thought it was a glue confused )....I had a great idea for world peace in there somewhere... ideaI'm burbling now, aren't I ? yeah I'll stop now. ( I have other people to be cruel to today. devil)

Hey Sniper since you have gone to better rewards in life then us mere mortals will concentrate on the good that will eventually arrive as it seems stress has been dragging me around by the tail and I can only hope that life will be more gental in the coming months as crohn's is becoming second place to things needing to be done.. could use my youthfull body of years ago just to give this getting older and tired body the rightfull rest it deserves.... lol gail

ok, it looks like he's finally gone on vacation. ya see, here's the deal. he couldn't post any pics of me if he wanted to........he doesn't know how. if anybody remembers, i had to post the pics of his claimed pet gator in his back yard. actually, i took those photos at the des moines zoo. closer to the truth would be that sniper's home IS the zoo. but, we'll let him have his little fantasy.

sno, he'd kill me if if i posted a photo of him. and i don't have any of the vest without him in it.......he's always wearing his 'hello kitty' vest over his 'che' tshirt. everbody got a thang, ya know?

seriously, snipey, hope yer gittin' better each day.

Hmm seems that vest is certainly getting it's celebrity status.. Hope the warmth of the sun and the beach brings him back to ...well I'am not sure of how we would like him to come back..rested,happy, and with the rewards of money well spent.. lol gail
