Glad you stopped by! I'm so sorry to hear Brie had emergency gall bladder surgery but glad it went well. The up shot of the tiny incisions is that recovery is so much quicker. It sucked having mine removed but I wasn't limited by it for long.

I'm so glad you were treated as spouse at both hospitals. I like to hear that. I think the tide is turning.

I cannot make myself be thin today, but I CAN be healthier by making a few smart choices. I focus on what needs to be done today and tomorrow takes care of itself.

UPDATE!
Nope, I'm not BACK but I've dropped in to say HELLO.
The GOOD NEWS: A friend of ours sold us a good as new turbo diesel ick up truck
It's official: Brie and I are now Diesel Dykes!
The BAD NEWS: Brie and I spent a week in the hospital getting her gall bladder removed.
She was admitted to the Army Hospital right after the stroke of midnight,with gall stone problems. Their specialist was on leave so the next day, they sent her to another hospital to get a non surgical treatment done. Two days later, ther was no progress, so Brie checked ot and returned to the Army Hospital.
At both hospitals, the staff treated us warmly and got me a cot so that I could sleep next to her bedside. I was always introduced as her wife, and the staff was genuinely friendly, Brie had three large gall stones removed from her bile duct and a very inflamed gall bladder extracted through her navel! She has four tiny scars. She was released on the 8th, the day after her surgery. She cannot lift any weight, and she is doing well. I hope the rest of the New Year is not as exciting!

And if you don't know Pennywise, search YouTube for him an check out the montage from scariest movie villains. It gets rolling about 1:45 in. As freaky as he was in the movie, he's 10x that in the book.

Go to YouTube and look for rapping hamster commercial. Cute hamsters; crappy rap. You will see part of my inspiration but beware: following the random leaps of my logic may lead you down the dark paths of my mind to a world that never quite seems...right.

ok, why have i never heard of this Pound Foolish? do i really want to know? yes i'm a dork and i need to know now. instructions would be almost vital for me Cincy, i am so not up with knowing how to find things and put them where i want them. i just learned how to put links on pages a little while ago and i still have to go by the instructions from another sparker just for team posts that i do! i do have a cute idea for my page, but it'll take some doing on my part and i will actually have to pose for a picture, ugh! i'll have to do it now just to show you guys even if i don't use it on my page.

And LadyIrish, I'm with you. Pound foolish was my 2nd thought. Would have been my 1st if I didn't know Pru was a King fan. But in this case I think the psychotic clown was pound-foolish. Or at least liked to take a pound of flesh.

ok, limited pics of my dog and we can't get any more of them. i wish i could, but she died last year. there are NO and i do repeat this NO recent pictures of me for good reason. i am the least photogenic person like ever! i have not had my picture taken twice in the last 10 years, no exaggeration. what i would like is something that is cute, but still says me, if that can possibly make any sense. or something to get Kellys attention no matter what, whichever would be better.

Or the coke sitting next to it??!?!?!

Maybe, a more recent photo!

Did you see the pic of him on his gingerbread house/porch?

too bad. basically, they're a blended float. they're good if you're on the run and can't take the time to be careful where you stick the spoon and straw! ok a little off topic, but i need some dork advice. one of my spark friends wants me to change my page around and i'm not sure what to put up to challenge him. Kelly wants to see something new and different and i figure i may as well give him a run for his money on this, any suggestions? try to keep in mind that i'm slightly techno challenged, so i might need instructions with certain things! lol.

You are so right! Although I have to say, I also like orange soda floats.

My food blog has kind of languished due to some health issues. Now that they're resolving, look for me to resume it. And I love A&W root beer.

speaking of A&W rootbeer: (earlier conversation kiddos!)
Brie used to race stockcars in Owego, NY and there was an A&W right next door. The racers got a special deal: they would pull-up with their stockcars in tow and hand the soda jerk an empty one gallon jug and get it filled with A&W rootbeer for ONE DOLLAR!

I used to hang out with another group of friends in the Pasadena, Altadena area. There are some pretty old houses there. LOTS of character. Had a friend whowas an opera singer and university professor who lived in some pretty swank apartments right off the old Pasadena Freeway. The farthest north in Calif that I've been is Grass Valley and Bishop, in the crook of the elbow, and Garberville, Which is pretty far north,almost Oregon. BIG SEQUOIA county and REDWOODS!

I was born in Pasadena and grew up in L.A. I'm well familiar with the Doo Dah Parade, and love it!

I live in west Texas 75 miles from El Paso.
If I'm ever in your neck of the woods, I'll sure be there in your kitchen!
When I was in LA, I had a group of friends who loved Tolkein and gather each week
to discuss his work. And of course, we would be in costume for picnics, Fantasy Conventions and the Pasadena DooDah Parade. (Dork version of the Rose Parade)
I will dig up my photos and post them here some day.
My Mr. Frodo lives in San Clemente, and we are still in touch, 25 years later!

Yes, I did. I posted a comment on the picture of Samwise (and I am still totally boiled that Sean Astin didn't get an Oscar nomination for Return of the King).

I don't know where you live, but if you're in Northern California you'd be welcome in my kitchen any time.

The breakfast tacos are standard fare in my house,
The scioppino looked lovely, I would be tempted to eat it though I am ALLERGIC to seafood.
Amd if this little hobbit comes to your door, I would love to curl up in your kitchen while you bake those bulgar rolls. (have you shecked out my hobbit drawings on the right?)

The fact that he's the head judge never entered my mind at all.

Toby, it sounds as though you were meant to find us. Welcome!

FYI, I think it was on NPR that I heard recently about shooting clubs combining with period costumes. I wish I could remember where. The specific story talked about dressing up as gangsters but a little cowboy action on a ranch could be fun.

I cannot make myself be thin today, but I CAN be healthier by making a few smart choices. I focus on what needs to be done today and tomorrow takes care of itself.

You can complain because roses have thorns. Or you can rejoice that thorns have roses.—Ziggy

Thank you Sparkfriends for being my roses!

Hi, my name is Therese, but that is only a formality. I'm usually known as Tee, or Tabby, or Toby (which I prefer) but I also answer to DORK, I was the loner in school, uncool, parhyria.
There were actually five of us in highschool band. We sort of huddled together against the tide, Together we enjoyed Dr, Demento and Weird Al Yankovich. Like most loners, I enveloped myself with imagination. I was active in school musicals, playing bit parts, pretending to be someone more exciting.
But it wasn't until I had graduated from undergraduate school, that I fell in with a bunch of Anachronists and Tolkein Followers. Some of my friends still remember me as Samwise Gamgee. We used to go to Renn Faires and Tourneys and Science Fiction Conventions,
Now I live in remote rural West Texas with my companion of 18 years. She claims to be weird enough by birth and abhors Dorkiness. She was a brainiac nerd in school, and not given to silliness. I say EMBRACE YOUR DORKINESS! (she and her brother called each other Dork too) In answer to her dorkiness and accusations of being a FAIRY, she loined the military, did two combat tours in Nam and is a decorated attack helicopter pilot. (before anyone figured out that, genetically, she is female) So pretending at excitment does NOT appeal to her.
Even so, we are designing our house to look like an Old West Ranch House, We are promoting cowboy shooting competitions(in costume) and we are building replica vintage airplanes(which will also provide costuming opportunities when we present them. I am proud to say that I am responsiblr for loosening her up, at least in my presence!
We host cook outs during the summer, followed by shooting competitions, and are pretty popular in the community,
So I come here and recognize some intriguing names. Some of you I know, some I have met brriefly. (Remember the steampunk group from last year? Me and Wolfwynd never quite got it off the ground) I am the Captain of the Pirates of the Carribean Fans club. Some of you know me from there, I think I'll fit right in here!
TOBY aka TABBY akaTEE
