:D
Great news from AntiM! Recovering from surgery is no picnic.

As for that shredder idea.... We had something like that in camp this year (soon to be last year). Rick & Marcia brought a little "chapel" that was a "Self Service Confessional". You went inside, wrote your sins on a piece of paper, and flushed that piece of paper down a toilet.

It would be a snap to install a shredder on that toilet. I will relay the article to them.

Hello the bar.

My mother called today.
My nephew has brain cancer.
He's two and a half.
He has surgery on New Year's Eve, if anyone can spare a prayer or a good thought.

I could use a drink.

Seems to be he season. Sorry to hear about the nephew. Dropped a few words into the big man's ear for you. Hope all goes well.

The Wife unit got sick Saturday. Non-stop convulsions and vomiting. Checked her into the hospital. Once the hospital got that under control, they ran scopes from both ends of her and found some polyps in her upper small intestine. Nervously waiting for biopsy results.

She deserves a break. It's complete bullshizz she has had to deal with this crap.

Mornin' campers!

I want to wish a Happy Birthday to the Mayor of Barbie Death Village Felony Arson. Oh, and it's my birthday as well! So I'm going to Denny's for my free Grand Slam breakfast and then to the local Regal theater to see The Big Short for free because I have an Entertainment Book coupon that gives you a free movie on your birthday. Then Thai food for dinner.

Thank you. With her recently getting past breast cancer, we know the odds are not in her favor, but something has to go in her direction. Damn it.

I know this pales in comparison to what that child is going through and his family as well. Not fair. Not at all fair.

Oops. I missed that part about Birthdays. Happy birthday Felony Arson and Dr. Pyro. Hope you both had a fair amount of 'special' on your day of days.

What is the meaning of Auld Lang Syne?




The title of the Scottish tune translates to “times gone by” and is about remembering friends from the past and not letting them be forgotten. Despite its strong association with New Year's Eve, “Auld Lang Syne,” written by Robert Burns in the 1700s, was never intended to be a holiday song.

Splendidly appropriate for the day, FIGJAM!
Everyone should have Robert Burns on their bookshelf. You bump into him all the time, but don't know it.

For example... "The best laid schemes o' mice an' men gang aft a-gley.." We quote it all the time -- "The best laid plans of mice and men go often wrong". All we have to say is "The best laid plans...." and everyone knows what we mean. That was Burns -- To a Mouse (Ode To A Field Mouse).

But even though we don't want to forget "auld acquaintance" and "times gone by", it seems safe to push failed plans to the background on New Year's Eve.
Happy New Year!

Thanks everyone for your thoughts and support. Nephew got out of surgery about an hour ago. The surgeons believe that they got almost the entire mass out with the exception of a small amount of film on his brain stem, but well within the acceptable parameters for this type of tumor. He's recovering now and they'll be following up over the next week or so to make sure that there has been no spread and to prepare him for chemo. So far things have been going as well as can be expected for the situation, and nephew has been in great spirits. I hope everyone has a healthy and happy new year!

Sounds like great news, bedlamdoll, woohoo for your nephew! Here's to a speedy recovery.

Thank you to everyone who's participated in this thread and the ePlaya community in 2015. I'm calling time on the 2015 thread, and kicking open the doors on the 2016 bar... check it out here.
