You are correct Steve, I think I was drawing about 35.00 per 2 weeks, but my hazardous duty pay brought my pay a tad bit higher.

Everything Else / Trip To Sams Club

My son in law purchased a Black Vietnam Veteran hat that I have seen a lot of veterans wear. I have never worn one. My wife said I should wear it so I could tell him I did so.

Well, I had to go to Sams this morning, which is a club owned Wall Mart corperation. It is a membership only club which some may not know about. It is like Cosco.

I decided to wear the hat. My wife called my daughter who owns the membership card and she told us the yearly dues was due this month and for me to just pay them.

Well, I got there and walked up to customer service and told the clerk I needed to pay the membership fee. She looked at my Vietnam Veterans hat and said , "Oh wait, are you a veteran? I told her yes and she said Sams had a special deal this month for past and active military members who renew their cards. I had my VA card in my pocket and showed it to her.

She took it and went to the register then came over and gave me a 10.00 gift certificate, and told me to go get a box of 20 Freesh Baked Crossaunts, a Roticary Chicken, a 12" Apple Pie, and 2.00 of a tub of loaded Potato Salad(pardon my spelling). I did.

Then I went to check out, and gave the girl the letter and the gift certificate, and the clerk did not charge me for the items and fisished checking me out and then thanked me for my military service. I guess I had 10 people, in the store, that also thanked me for my service. I will say I did not feel comfortable with all the thanks, although I know the people were trying to be being nice, so I smiled and told them I appriciated it.

Wall Mart Corp gave me $10.00 and purchased our dinner today. I will say it was my lucky day!!!!!

Happy 4th on the 5th. Sorry I'm late. Had to work 17 hours at the hospital yesterday. Missed the fireworks. But being a true Cleveland Browns fan, it is so very easy for me to say, "There's always next year!"  :-\

Thanks pop pop. I am heading in that direction. Seems I am always putting it off for one reason or another. I managed to lose 10# and my knees are thanking me for it. I can actually tell the difference. Good luck to you brother!

Yeah. I know.
I'm getting there.
Knee replacement: If I live long enough.

I'm sorry that steroids didn't help.
I hope that the lubricant (maybe some sort of colloid) will do some good.

Everything Else / Knee Pain
« Last post by pop pop on July 04, 2018, 05:35:19 AM »
Went today to see if my right knee was ready to be replaced. My left knee replacement(in March) is doing great.

They x rayed the right one and determined I still had enough cartledge and did not warrant replacement at this time. My knee cap has no cartledge so it is where my intense pain is coming from.

They are going to put a series of shots(3, one per next three weeks) in my right knee and are hopeful that will take care of the pain. I don't know what it is called, but it is some kind of lubricant and suppose to lube the bones and adhere to the cartledge thereby helping.

The Steriod shots are not lasting but 3 weeks and run my blood sugar through the roof after taking them.

Will post results, for those suffering from knee pain who may be interested. By the way, I should have had the knee surgery, on my left knee, long ago. I highly recommend it.

The replacement has its short cummings, but then again they will never be as good as God gave you. I have had very little problems and there is very little pain in my left knee now. I'll say again "I highly recommend the replacement surgery" if you need it.

Well, I confess.
There was a gun, years ago, that I carried for a while without ever firing a single round through it.

To say I was complacent and overconfident would be an understatement.

Those days are long gone. Nowadays I just passed the 1000 round mark with the EDC and I'm thinking I'd like to run another thousand through it, just to make sure!
