Elizabeth,

Many Ohms headed your way. I hope the epidural steroids help you 1,000 times better than they did me. The only reason I went for a second time was because of the 6 hours of relief the pre steroid lidocaine injection gave me and a hope that the second set would do better.

I ended up gaining 50 pounds due to the steroids and that was after having had gastric bypass surgery. Now I won't let steroids touch any part of me unless the choice is either steroids or death, and then I'd have to ponder on it for a while.

Hugs!

I'll let Les handle the more part of his nickname but mine is simple.

My older brother was an amateur poet and wrote under the pseudo-name "Possum" to keep his identity covered.

He was also a svelte 180 pounds and exercised regularly and was totally unlike my vast waistland physic. Needless to say I admired him greatly and when he passed away from a sudden and very unexpected massive heart attack I scooped his alias or moniker as a way of remembering and hopefully honouring him.

Besides his passing has made me the official patriarch of this branch of the Dalla-Vicenza Family.

The picture was taken by the local newspaper on Canada Day of DW and I sitting on our Toy Run Float.

Ok just to keep you up to date on the darker area of the rainbow, say the brown side!

Don't walk away from the job and talk to pretty blond next door when filling up the black tank with extra water through the San-ti-flush! Man that thing fills up fast cause I wasn't talking long, I promise. So back home now and ready to shampoo the carpet. Yeah!

I let this slip pass but here is the answer. Teffy (bob) is 1 year older than dirt, so he is the elder.

Humbling, I know. But happy birthday is spite of it, Wayne. And here's hoping we can harass you again every year on this date for a VERY long time.
I'm looking forward to it. As for the hack, I'd like to say she promised me some favors, but that is out of the question. Example, she stated she didn't get me a birthday cake, so I suggested something else and she responded with, "Give me the keys to the car."

I'll look forward to the harassment, err well wishes, next year and for many years, I hope.

Don' let him kid you. When he walks, he has to hold out his arms so people will know if he is rolling or waddling.

Very nice, even the picture, well the right half of the picture as you look at it.

With the guitar and mask - I'm sure he speaks French and so the sum of the parts is definitely Dennis.... and Dogpatch is considerably Less complicated to explain and therfore - clearly Less is Les.
To clear this up.

I thought up my user name Dogpatch for a lot less glamorous reasons than Possum. I'm not named after a relative or anyone famous although I understand that there is a well known park named after me!

I remember I was looking out at my grass shortly after getting our dog and saw all the dead patches of grass it had made while doing it's business in the back yard. It became known as the dog patch.
Right around the same time, I was sitting back on my deck thinking about doing something with my dog patch and I remembered that when I was young, I used to listen to a radio program with my Dad about Lil' Abner and the name Dogpatch came into mind. A eureka moment hit me and Dogpatch became my moniker.

As for my avatar, I looked on line for a dog photo and came across the bulldog and seeing "bull" printed on the sweatshirt, I correlated it with me always calling "Bull****" to most of what I hear, I knew instantly that this had to be my avatar.

I hope that clears it up.

Most of the above is not "Bull****" but it makes for a good story and I'm stickin to it.

Mary should thump you upside the head.

However, I'm still sorry to hear that. I've come close to that but never achieved the overflow and I wasn't talking to anyone.

So tell us, how did Mary react.

I'd rather hear how the blonde reacted.

So no more details about the pretty blond next door? Just how long of a walk was it to go visitate with her? I have a similar problem, only the hot babes come over to visit me ... just when I'm in synch with some intense task like hooking up the toad. I know ... it's a curse, but I've learned to live with it.

Now Wayne I'm only doing that when I do the wobble dance.

Actions of a true male mutant.

Blonds cause more fun...

Oh Tim,

Sorry to read about the overflow of the tank, I'm surprised that the pressure blew past your toilet seal though. I have heard of incidents where the tank filled to the point of going out the top of the stack instead. It just goes to show you that you have to avoid all distractions to avoid gubernaculam getting inside the coach, thank you for testing this out for me on yours.

Cheers !!!!
