Ärende: Introductions...  1.
============================

 AH> Hi, James!  Recently you wrote in a message to Ardith Hinton:

Dad had a couple of replies when ask. "I've been better." or "I've been worse."
Those still send the tele-marketers for a whirl. I usually quip "That's a
loaded question." When they give me the dumb look, I just inform them, "I don't
like to complain." That usually lets them off the hook.

I guess besides the time I was a screaming child, I never was too afraid of
dogs. Even after being bitten by one. Sure, there was a time or two when a dog
was protecting his territory that I knew not to walk any further, but mostly we
find some common ground. 

Friends had a Boxer that I had to get acquainted with, and I never did trust
that one too much, but we did get along OK. Oddly, a few years ago I was
introduced to the son of a champ Pit-Bull. The first few seconds were tenuous,
but after that we were fast friends.

Sans a Wolf, or some nasty in-breading, a dog can usually be reasoned with,
I've found. We had a half-wolf living next to us for a while. I was tenuous
with that one, but we were reasonably OK with one another after some polite
conversations through the fence. He just needed to know that barking at a bag
blowing down the ally was different that a kid teasing him. Once he understood
that I was on his side, after giving heck to his pesterers, we were right as
rain.

 AH>          I didn't have a bicycle & my parents didn't have a
 AH> car, so I walked a lot.  When I was ten or eleven I slipped
 AH> on a steep woodland slope, but didn't realize until years

 AH> my tailbone....  ;-)

Consider yourself relatively lucky. <G&D>

 AH> stuff, only to find themselves in worse shape later without it.

 AH> /

The poor MD had to lie to me that he was prescribing a "Non-addictive form"
just to get me out of his office. Still doesn't mean I wouldn't tear a strip
off him if we ever met again. <G> I understand his need to keep me on my feet
now, but the narcotics sure caused more problems than they solved for me.

Before a sinus infection, and two tough wisdom teeth being pulled, I rarely
even took ASA. Regardless how much I tell people how much better pain
management is when you can actually feel the pain, I have to understand that
their idea of "managing" and mine may be different.

Heck... I don't even like the stuff they have me on now, and there is nothing
opiate about *them!*
 AH>          There hasn't been a lot of traffic lately & I

I might have missed the previous messages, but as a new NEC took over here, (No
ideas on when he took over.) I just assumed that there was no idle threads on
this system.

As a co-moderator, you run your own board then? 

 AH>          Uh-huh... or they're busy "doing the Aged Parent
 AH> bit", as some of our contemporaries put it, or looking
 AH> after kids with special needs, or struggling with various
 AH> problems of their own, or all of the above.  I think we
 AH> have many regular readers who tend not to say much, but I
 AH> can certainly relate....  :-))

Ya... They're flooding the I-Net trying to keep Windows running long enough so
their kids can write their reports that are overdue. <GD&R>

 JB>  I was trained in drums and percussion a bit, and did
 JB>  exhibit some skill in my days.

 AH>          Ah... Nora plays percussion with Dallas & me in a
 AH> community band too. At first she played maraca (singular).  She
 AH> had a stroke 2 1/2 years ago which left her completely
 AH> paralyzed on one side, but now she's progressed to a point
 AH> where she can use a modified drumstick to make some reasonably
 AH> musical sort of noise with both hands.  Fortunately, the
 AH> conductor is very understanding... he lets Nora sit beside
 AH> me, and that way I can provide assistance as needed.  :-)

Sounds symbiotic to me. <-;

Like I keep telling highly trained musicians that want to pound the bejeabers
out-a some of my tools, "They are always abrasive, and it takes a special touch
to make them sound musical." Some of them get it. O-8=


... Making it "idiot-proof" will just encourage 'em.
