Cars tend to follow the one in front of them in whiteouts and heavy fog; I had a friend who had a long driveway off of a state highway, and one evening he pulled in and had to tell all of the cars that followed him home to turn around and head back.

My driveway is too short for people to confuse it with a regular road but occasionally it could act as a boat launch when the creek rises.

Cassidy is a good name for a walker. (Hop Along)
This week's Curb your Enthusiasm featured the walker.
Similar to old locomotives a good cow catcher mini plow is a great walker idea.

My wife named her cane but I haven't even named my four seater Corvette. If I do, maybe 4-Vett could work. 40 years ago I had a Z 2+2

Have you given your walker a name? Mine is called Hoppy. I had to get him when I broke my ankle because I also broke my wrist and couldn't grip crutches. I had to Velcro my lower arm to Hoppy so I could hop around on one foot.

I understand that if I ever need his services again, it may involve shuffling instead of hopping, but that makes no difference. He'll always be Hoppy to me. I wouldn't want a walker called Shuffley anyway.

That's probably what we'll step down to next week. The bruises are spectacular and painful now. It's always something.

I really don't need the walker, what I use it for is a general sweeping motion in front of me to chase the dogs out from underfoot. "Plow the road" is the fighter jet term that I've seen in movies; this is the terrestrial version.

It ain't addictive if it helps and you WANT to stop taking it as soon as possible. Me, I don't like to take pills but I will if I need it. Later you might try T-3 or T-4 -- basically Tylenol with codeine, T-3 has less codeine that T-4.

Right now it is my friend - I tried anti-inflammatory last night instead of oxy at bedtime (because of the swollen knee) and it was the worst most painful night's sleep in a long time. And it didn't help the swelling. I had to wait six hours before the next dose of painkiller. And I've slept much of the day. MOM hasn't had any problems with me, just nudges me occasionally and tells me to do my stretches.

elo mom, I started the partisan prescription of 'Mr. Rodgers little helpers'. They cause folks to exude extreme kindness and have a blissful resignation to bad news without worry.
Side effects are ulcers and stomach cancer but
what do you expect from swallowing the bile of the world without some reaction? They are opiate FREE but contains 90% heroin.

The sister drug to Mr Rodgers helpers is for Republicans and is just plain anerobic steroids and amphtamines.

It has been illustrated many times that Trump's self-declared height is a special brand of BS. He's 6'1" at most, when you see him standing beside Obama and others all in the same type of shoes. Perhaps his waist is what is 75 inches.

MOM, I'm home with a new knee. It smarts a bit, what with the bone saws and gluing chunks of titanium to the exposed ends. I'm only checking in briefly before I put the leg squeezer things on to keep the blood circulating.

My last name means, in Modern Dutch, "Goalie." Given that my first name translates from Hebrew as "Who Is Like God" my name means "Goalie Who Is Like God" or "God-like Goalie." (This is true, by the way. I found out the goalie part from a Dutch fella in Carcassone awhile back. We were told as children my surname meant "Keeper of the Sacred Places" which, if you're into soccer, fits.)

The "Wall" part of my surname (LaWall) is a Germanic spelling of the French "Valle", meaning valley. It has nothing to do with any wall.

My wife's name is Susan, which comes from the Persian word for lily. Therefore, her married name literally translates as Lily Of The Valley.

Quincy, WA is on land above the Columbia River and the town grid is Letter streets one way and Number streets the other. The alphabet streets only go up to T. I looked it up, I have been past but not to it, but since Microsoft seems to have set up the largest data center in Quinch, someone travels there on occasion.

And there's this, from Wikipedia:
Although George is the closest town to the Gorge Amphitheatre, Quincy is the closest town that offers services such as motels and a full grocery store. Quincy sees an uptick in population during concerts. Quincy was previously home to Tacos mi Pueblo, one of the most sought-after Mexican restaurants in the area.

The semi-arid climate allows Quincy to go for weeks or months without rain during the summer. This makes nearby water recreation such as Crescent Bar a major draw. Quincy is the closest town with services to Crescent Bar.


Yup. You know we had to have a town of George, Washington. My parents spent some time in that part of the state, but escaped to the West side of the Cascades before I was even aware of what the East side was like. As Dad used to say, "miles and miles of miles and miles."

Florida! Phooey! Quincy, Illinois has amongst its literary and thespian lights folks like Lucile Vasconcellos Langhanke (who acted under a fake name for some reason, that being Mary Astor) and my friend Roy Brocksmith. And other famous folks, like Paul Tibbets and Ike Samuels. Martin Jones Hawkins was one of those who was chosen for the Andrews Raid, a/k/a The Great Locomotive Chase; he overslept and missed it but was promoted the Sergeant and got the Medal of Honor anyway and he's buried in Quincy. Lincoln and Douglas had one of their debates there. As noted earlier, Sam Clemens visited there many times and sometimes stayed sober! St. Francis Solanus College, later St. Francis College and then Quincy Academy and then Quincy College and now Quincy University (I lived four blocks away) was the alma mater of not only ME but also the Venerable Augustus Tolton -- yes, me and Gus were good friends and often played billiards together after various classes. The town even had a lynching -- about a month after the Civil War ended a self-confessed Missouri bushwhacker named Tom Rose was hoisted by a bunch of recovering Union veterans from the hospitals.

Quincy, Indiana...Quincy, California...Quincy, Massachusetts...Quincy, Washington...Quincy, Florida...Quincy, Michigan -- all trying to horn in on the glory. (Quincy, Illinois, FWIW, is the county seat of Adams County.)

John Quincy Adams must have been pretty highly regarded during his lifetime in order to have all those towns named after him. I don't think he's on many historian's Top Ten Presidents list.

Or maybe the idea of having a president to name towns after was so new that folks jumped at the opportunity, even if he was a lousy president.

At least they didn't name anyplace really important after him, like Quincy, District of Columbia.

There are Quincys in several states. They're all presumably named after John Quincy Adams. I guess whoever named them thought "Quincy" had more panache than "John" or "Adams".

We even have a Quincy in Florida. I've been through there a few times, but have never been struck by a compelling desire to stop.

It is not home to any bridges across the Mississippi River.

It's got a pubic library, a public library, a veterans' home (started in 1886), a riverfront, huntin', fishin', eddykashun institoots (even a kolidj, where I went), a lotsa nice houses that rich folks lived in back in the 19th Century or so. It's got TWO bridges for cars across the river (THE river, the Mississippi,the ONLY river worth talking about), one going to Missouri and one coming back. Heck, it's even got a damn dam!

Twenty miles or so upriver from Hannibal, Mo. Yup, Sam Clemens' home town. Sam would bring a steamboat in and me and him would go drinkin'. After a while ol' Sam would excuse himself and go visit the "young ladies" upstairs. Then the Civil War started and Sam up and went West with his brother Orion -- plumb lit out fer Nevada Territory. Dunno what ever happened to him...probably fell down a mine shaft cuz he was always pretty clumsy.

That's the problem, Bee-Dub: false advertising or what we called growing up back on the corn-swept prairies of Illinois, "lyin' through his false teeth." Why, I once looked at a house that was for sale and the ad said that it had "running water." When I went there the water came out of a faucet and didn't run anywhere! It didn't even have shoes! Or the bank that advertised "low interest loans" -- why tell customers that the bank has little interest in lending money when they probably know that already? "Truth in advertising" -- plain old phooey!
