G'day all and a warm welcome to Cat. Cat, if you survived your brother you will survive this crazy funny loveable mob here.
Wish I had snow. Never seen it but in Aug I will do so when I visit my beloved Ceinwen over East. Weather is a bit cooler now luckily as Jane engine has a massive heamorrage which I will attend to today. Then I get to have fun fitting out my new ambulance.
Davey, I hoe you don't end up a Bent Over Old Man. You might go BOOM! wE COULD PUT YOU IN A BOX AND WE WOULD HAVE A BOOMBOX. Speaking of capslocks! This 'cause I don't look at the screen. And again speaking of caps locks, I must have about 30 caps given to me by various companies etc. So I'm going to put them all in a cupboard and lock it. My caps will be locked.
I am nursing a rather sore back from changing a flat on my car so will have to be careful fixing the engine.
Best get into it.

Good Morning Everybody! herring, steph, Sabby, nursefrances, dianah, AKY, Michael, Ted, Joe, and Anybody else who Stops By!
Michael, there is So Very Much I could say about your Immensely Entertaining Post.
For One Thing, I wanted to let you know that I could Talk to a Post. Some have said that I'm as Dumb as a Post. But that's not the Important Thing Right Now.
What is Important is your Warm Welcome to my Little Sis. For that, I Thank you. I Noted that Cat was Online with AN.com well into the Afternoon. I'm Thinking that maybe she was Perusing the Posts, but whatever she was doing, she must have been Into It. She was either Into It, or walked away and left her Computer on to AN.com.
The Other Important Thing is your Back, Michael. I realize that you're a Wise Old Bloke, but this Old Dude wanted you to Consider something that I discovered while I was in a Heavy Stage of Disassembling the Blue Funk, my '51 Chevy Pickup.
I was Twisting Off some Pretty Big Bolts on the Frame when I Strained my Shoulder a Bit. Having a Universal Weight Lifting Set in the Basement adjoining my Garage, I immediately used some Weights to Work Out the Slight Strain.
It was then that my Idea came to me: Why not work out before I work on the Blue Funk so my Muscles will be Warmed Up and Ready to Go? So that's What I Did- Lift Weights before Working on the Blue Funk. Now, I don't Mean Any Kind of Heavy-Duty Workout, just Something to get Blood Pumping to my Muscles and Loosen Myself up a Bit.
The Weight-Lifting Warm-Up Worked So Well that I Rarely Taxed my Connective Tissue Thereafter. I Felt so Much Better, in Fact, that I now do at least a 10 minute Workout before coming to Work, since I have to Tug and Move and Sometimes Pick Up Patients in my Job.
The Ol' Ounce of Prevention Thing, you know?
Anyway, that's Enough for me, at this time.
Do have A Good Day you All!
