Why thanks Jon. Still waiting on Kaso to send my blades. Been over a week. :(

Anyway, had a very good time with my grandson for Halloween. He was a scary clown, me a bearded lady. :D Yes, I did have a dress on. :D Bad thing, just as we were finishing up trick or treating, didn't I stepped were I shouldn't. :o Yep, busted my butt and left hip. Yep, a bad one. Using a dam walker to get around. >:(

Hey Lynn, I a bit better this morning. Able to put a little weight on my left leg. Still having a bunch of pain, but that eased up some. Should be good in a couple days. ;D

Today is our 39Th anniversary. Going to try taking the wife out to dinner.

I think dinner would be a good idea. You need the rest. And a few points with the wife helps too. ;D

Dinner is a good idea and Happy Anniversary.  smiley_love

Now for a "none of my business" question.  It's fairly well know that I loves me some cajun cooking so tell we what a coonass orders when he goes out to eat??  ;D

Yes it is. We have a bunch of Mexicans that live in the area due to sugarcane grown here. Very hard to find field help these days if you know what I mean. >:(

It's still hand planted. That has to be done every 3 years. Then you need labor to drive field equipment and over the road drivers. The trailers they pull on the road are loaded up well over 100K. It's the only crop in the state that can have over 80K loads. >:(

Just a update. Still using a walker to get around. Doing the insurance game waiting for them to OK a CT. >:( Unreal. >:( Taking a bad fall and bruised to hell, one would think one could walk a week later. :o



 

My neck is better after that last shot, so that is a go. ;D

I did get my saw blades in today ;D They dropped them off under my carport. Bad thing, it's been raining a lot here with more rain to come the next few days. Will get my daughter to put them away out the weather. Just can't do it myself. >:(

Will talk to SIL to see if he has the time to come over and start sawing the siding. I know he wants to get that done, so I can always sit, watch and tell him what needs to be done and me drinking beers. :D

I have to Lynn. DanG walls are closing in on me. Going to do a road trip today just to get out. I'm in need of a new air nailer. ;D My 16 ga nailer started giving me a little trouble. Then again it's about 15 years old.
