    Since I'm up, thought I would give a quick update on my condition...Friday they diagnosed me with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. It's been a roller coaster of emotions the past few days and I want to thank RH for helping me through this and the kind words of Truth yesterday.

    I hear you are going to bedazzle a cane for me! :) I figured I would get Tazer and/or wendy to trick out a scooter for me if it comes to that!

    Ok folks, it is approaching 10:30 mountin time, and I am going to make bride a late breakfast and settle in for a day of pigskin. Be well all and will talk to you tomorrow on RichHead Day!

    September 18, 2011 at 12:23 pm |
  6. Truth@JBJ, RichHead

    Class was both fascinating, scary and informative at the same time. Makes me wish it was the year 2000 again, which for me marked the end of simplicity as we knew it. Took Bride to the movies last night, and for the first time, I saw a "See Something, Say Something" PSA with the trailers. Would have been inconceivable not too many years ago. Shows me how much our world has changed and continues to change.

    AndJBJ, PLEASE know we are with you. I am not a fan of most social media, as I have said before on here. I think that it is a tragedy just how many marriages and relationships have fallen prey to FB and the like, but one GREAT thing that has happened here is the cohesion that has formed among the regulars. You do not see that very often. PLEASE know that you are not alone. Be well my friend!

    A VERY HAPPY B-DAY to AleeD! Many happy returns and do something fun today!

    Many best wishes to to Brother RichHead, the almost birthday boy and to JBJ, who is dealing with more than any of us should. Please know that you have our support darlin', now and always. Be well my dear!

    WTH, I'm being moderated! Let's try this again...
    Mom's boyfriend is coming over later, probably want to play some Wii Bowling...maybe I'll just watch so I don't hurt myself! LOL Or maybe a few games of Iranian Rummy. Beautiful sunny day here, no rain, but it is the desert so it's used to it. Have fun grilling, give WD a good belly rub for me. You work tomorrow or did you declare it a National Holiday in honor of your birthday?

    September 18, 2011 at 10:56 am |
    • RichardHead@JBJ

      OMG–Naked Wii bowling with geriatrics? Seriously? Where's the bleach....My eyes...Noooooo...HA! WD and I won't leave out till midnite so I guess..Yes,it is a National Holiday.

      • JBJ_from Moms Pueblo@RH

        Ha, I didn't play 19 because I didn't remember the #'s you gave me! I played 7, 9, 17, and 18, oh well. I fell last night when I went to bed, so I have a lump on the back of my head, a very sore back, buised foot, and a sore right butt cheek....other than that I'm just peachy. Any plans for today?

      Looks like we were posting at the same time! Great minds think alike. :) I played 7, 17, 18 and won on 7 & 17, $36! Should have kept playing that...the darn penny machines took me for almost $400, but mom won about $600 so I don't feel so bad.

      Good Morning and Thank You. I also tossed and turned ALL nite for some reason.....I'll blame Truth's insomnia that made it's way from AZ to Texas the past couple of days. How are you doing?

      September 17, 2011 at 8:26 am |
      • JBJingles_from Moms Pueblo@RH

        Good morning again. I went back to bed and finally fell asleep, then the gardner shows and up and starts whacking weeds at 6 a.m.!! I'm now officially up and have coffee. I'm ok, but this thing is stating to set in on me. I think I was so relieved yesterday that I didn't have a tomber or cancer, but now reality is starting to hit.

        September 17, 2011 at 9:18 am |

      • Peyton Manning@Queen

        Your highness, since being injured, I have been doing a lot of thinking...And I need to be straight with not only you, but also my wife, kids and other fans. I am not playing due to an injury, but I am sitting out because I am afraid. Afraid of defensive linemen, but also of my own identity. For years, I have been hiding who I am and I need to explore that. I am hereby leaving Indy and am retiring to Provincetown, MA to run a juice bar with my partner Lance. I am sure that you and the rest of our fans will understand. I think I need a good cry, and maybe send myself some flowers.

    Happy Early Birthday to AleeD and RH...don't go too crazy this weekend!

      September 16, 2011 at 11:53 am |

        Cleveland vs The Indy Bolts
        Buffalo Bisons vs Oakland
        Seattle vs Pitt

        September 16, 2011 at 11:56 am |
      • Truth@RichHead

        I will have to go with Cleveland over Indy, 24-10
        Oakland over Buffalo 28-14
        Seattle over Pittsburgh 13-7

        You heard it here first!

        September 16, 2011 at 12:04 pm |
      • Queen of Everything from the Castle@Truth, Richard

        I know I'm not in your little boys football club but here are my picks based on my vast knowledge of football.
        Cleveland/Indy: Indy all the way. WTH is a brown anyway?
        Buffalo/Oakland: Buffalo. I like their colors better. Unless it's a night game and then the Oakland's black and silver would be more appropriate. Is it a night game?
        Seattle/Pitt: Seahawks FTW. I'm not sure what that emblem is on the side of the Pittsburgh helmet but it doesn't say Steelers to me. They should have steel I-beam or something. Or change their name to Stealers and have some guy jacking a car.

        September 16, 2011 at 12:41 pm |

        I'm not even gonna try and pick the scores but I do have a general feel for the teams to try and pick winners. Is that alright or do I have to pick scores?

        Indy over Cleveland
        Oakland over Buffalo
        Pittsburgh over Seattle

    Good morning, friends! Chilly (and dark) start to the day here in Indy but a peaceful one as well. Nothing like sitting on the deck, wrapped in a blanket, listening to the rooster and the cows from the farm down the street. Ahhhh, country life! The boys will be up soon so I'm gong to get started on the caramel pecan sticky buns. Have a great morning!

      ooooo.....Please save one for me. I like them cut in half, toasted and smothered in butter and honey. And I wonder why I'm diabetic. :)

      I rationalize by taking an extra hit of insulin. I figure none of us get out of here alive so we might as well enjoy the ride!
