    Hmmm... I’m still not sure about that Playgirl skateboard. As Shakespeare would put it, “Thou dost protest too loudly, methinks.”

    Nah, seriously, Dawg, great response! Very funny. Thanks for taking the time to put it together.

    Lest you doubt my military prowess let me tell you I reached the rank of Lance-Corporal in the Cadets and was appointed to supervise the outdoor stores. Not including the armoury, probably just as well.

    After about 5 hard weeks of counting horridly stacked, rotting in some cases, and undocumented stores and working on paperwork I then spent the rest of the school year mostly reading the 1917 King's Regulations I found in there and counting out or in "my" stores.

    So many words as found in the King's Regulations had changed meaning in the intervening years. Intercourse with the enemy seemed to have shifted in meaning a little.

    Been awhile. Recovering from two weeks of combined illness. :(

    What started as a very bad cough managed to reirritate a damaged lumbar disc (from an old motorcycle injury), to the point I couldn’t even wear pants and had to be on ice constantly. Well, the fix for that was to do some walking workouts on a treadmill everyday. I’m so clever. :oops:

    That fixed the back, but drove the cough deeper in my lungs. By Saturday night, I could not sleep at all, I was having running agonizing coughing fits that were so extreme they sometimes led to dry heaving, a favorite pastime of all of us. ::puke::

    I spent five hours in urgent care Sunday morning. As soon as they saw my blood’s oxygen saturation level was at only 88%, they put me in a room and took me very seriously. Xrays, EKG, blood work ups. Steroid injections, nebulizer steroids etc etc. Extreme viral bronchitis, I was told. I don’t recommend it - worse than a bad redial!

    I had to fight to be released - they wanted to hospitalize me. I admit I told the attendant “Fuck that!” I managed to get my O2 level over 95% and they let me go with a handful of prescriptions.

    I’m recovering now. If I talk too much, I run out of breath. The coughing occurs only occasionally and is productive now. I’ll be fine. ;)

    Sorry for the length.

    From Wikipedia article about Mr. Atchinson:

    “He is best known for the claim that for one day (March 4, 1849) he may have been Acting President of the United States President. This belief, however, is dismissed by nearly all historians, scholars, and biographers.”

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Rice_Atchison

    Sorry. Looks like a redial.
