Fuck.

My son has been recuperating at my house for the last two and a half years from a motorcycle wreck...
pretty much as healed as he can get by now. The only thing still not back to normal is his left arm.
He's lucky to be alive, after all the damage that was done.

Now, he's preparing to move into his newly-bought (relatively good) motor home.
We're both ready for that. :wink:

I'm not looking forward to his next bike.

The Buick RoadMaster Estate Wagon I had for a few years always failed near home. I once saw the oil pressure gage start to bounce around. I figured it was a loose wire. I drove it home and popped the hood. I wiggled the wire and the pressure sending unit fucking fell apart in my hand. I couldn't believe it. I turned over the engine and oil sprayed out. I cannot figure out why it didn't fail on the drive home.

In any case, it may be fucking lucky to have this happen not on the Playa. Sure, it sucks, but you actually have enough time to fix it.
Not so lucky... the Land Yacht has an Olds Quad 4 in it. The oil pressure sensor is up high and the leak is way down low. And by "leak" I mean a Niagra Falls of oil.

Fuck! Our friend Moonrise is scheduled for fucking surgery tomorrow at 4 PM! Apparently the docs there at Renown in Reno are really concerned about the MRI images of his spine. He feels like he's being railroaded into it but, from all I hear he really can't wait any longer to get his back opened up and find out what the hell is cooking in there.

He's really sick. :( But still not real keen on this surgery.

Anyway, he says he would rather not be moved from the "Fuck!" thread to the "Rest In Peace" thread :shock: so, he will let them cut him open tomorrow. :|

Fuck, though.

Sending you my fucking best Moonie.

You were my first.
(PM, that is)
(in here, that is)

So full of hope and concern and advice when we were so worried about Triken's son's injuries, back when we didn't quite know how he'd fare.

You'd been there. You WERE there. You absolutely gushed hope.
...and I gobbled it up... ....passed it on....

I know I thanked you for that hope, but I can't say I feel like I said it enough. Or properly.

And now I just want to close my eyes and aim my thoughts to the most important bureaus of universal justice and implore them to help you get the relief you so deserve.

You, who did the same for one I love.

Fucking heal, Moonrise. Heal like fuck!!! We're all rooting for you!!

Well fuck. There are maybe four people I graduated high school with that I care about seeing again. I've been really strongly fucking thinking about one of them for about a year now. Never acted on it. She died today. Fuck cancer. Rest in peace Jill. And the rest of you fuckers need to quit smoking NOW.

And from now fucking on trust your damn instincts. Love them all up while you can.

Well this is royally fucked. Many of you know Laura and Stu, longtime Barbiebarians (they had the 45' motor home the past three years, hauled out our gas, Stu would fix the pump for the shower, Laura is Lonestoner916's mother). Laura's daughter Angela was killed night before last. I don't have the details, but it's safe to say it had nothing to do with natural causes and in all likelihood having to do with intoxicants and being in the wrong place at the wrong time. She's on her way to Georgia now and we're trying to collect enough money for Stu to be able to attend. Times are tight, but not so tight that we cannot find it in our hearts to give when needed. God bless you Laura and Stu, and Angela, RIP.

FUCK.

Seems like this is another bad year just like 2010. Lost one of my friends from the field yesterday. Bill was a core drill operator, and a damned good one. He was safe, and nobody got killed or injured around his rig.

He retired a few years ago at 65 after 35 years of service. He was a friend. Lung cancer took him.

Of all of the times we spent together, I'll never forget the Casa Gallardo in St. Louis and the legend of the Tasmanian Devil. We were working on a difficult stretch of I-55 south of the city, and temperatures were well into the 90s. Last night out - we had the traditional dinner as a team, and decided to try the Casa G. (probably because of the special they were running on $7.99 chimichanga plates).

Bill and I were at the same table (we had 8 men at two tables). The conversation about the day's events ( we call it 'drilling after hours') had begun to drop off, but then somebody brought up cartoons. We all had our favorite characters. Charles didn't know who the Tasmanian Devil was, and Bill got up from the table and hunched over and waved his arms around crazily.....

"You remember him now, Charlie, don't cha?"

"Nope, Bill....."

I got up and did the same as Bill, adding the crazy sound effects that a Tasmanian Devil used to in the Warner Brothers cartoons......and inadvertently FARTED.

[media]


Bill sat down, his body shaking from laugher....

"Charlie......"

"yep, Bill...I remember now.....that's the Tasmanian Devil for sure......."

We laughed all the way back to the motel that night. Of the four of us at that table, only two of us are left. Danny (a.k.a. "Tacklebox") and Bill (a.k.a. "Buster") have now passed away. It's just me and Charlie now.

FUCK! Bill, you will be missed.
