  • Holy crap Bro!

    Just saw your post. I'm going to go have a glass (or maybe a bottle) of wine.

    Glad things are OK. I'm raising the first glass to you, my friend.

    Tho' much is taken, much abides; and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will; to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

      "I am a Man of Constant Sorrow"

      Just a whim to pick this up. Life is strange, but then so am I.

      I am a Man of Constant Sorrow
      The very first time I heard that song was as a cover by a punk band called "Osaka Popstar" (one of the Ramones is their drummer). Oddly enough, and as opposed to the YouTube link, the tune says "I bid farewell to old Jersey, the place where I was born and raised." More befitting, I would say.

            I was near to have a heart attack reading your quote.
            I am more terrified reading your posts than reading a stephen king's story.

                • I just about threw up my morning toast when I saw this thread in bold...good thing I haven't had lunch yet or else I would've really tossed my cookies (don't laugh too much, I've had cookies for lunch on numerous occasions before!)

                  Glad for the happy ending and I'm sorry to chime in late, but I'm so glad for the all-clear. I thought Andy was the only one who listened to the Soggy Bottom Boys

                  Oh, and one more thing...Lefty's been loosey for a while now, but glad that Righty's tighty! If you must ask, the phrase has to do with screwdrivers (the tool, not the drink)

                  • Mark,
                    Give us the "all clear" without scaring the crap out of us this time! Speaking of crap, good luck with the barium chaser...we're waiting on the news!
