RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I declined the divers test and evaluation of my ability to drive. I feel fine and have been driving. no problems. The monitor does not show any sign of heart trouble after four days of monitoring. Dr, Doug I hear you loud and clear and will wait to see how it all turns out Meanwhile I will keep my life as close to normal as I can.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. My heart monit9r hasn't shown any thing going on with the heart. I have had it since Wednesday and no episodes have been registered or recorded. So I guess their diagnoses of A fib are not accurate. Anyway According to the monitor I am fine. So what caused the stroke? The golf cart us nice. Our new neighbor is putting up a fence. He called the County Dog Pound on us about Dixie being in his yard. I Talked with him yesterday about the situation, but nothing resolved. I told him I was done with him and came home. I guess it is okay for his cats to roam the neighborhood without being taken care of. anyway we are at a standoff about the dogs and cars. The cats are at our house being fed and taken care of at our expense. There are two left/ three have gone missing. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing you a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. I am still fuzzy in my thinking and find it hard to do some tasks.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

My son in law's mother lives just off the road there. I have driven it in my truck. Son in law rides it often on the motorcycle. fun road in the right vehicle. Driving days are over with the camper over. Getting a golf cart to get around in here at home. I guess I will be fishing a lot in the pond behind the house. MY thinking is muddled. don't comprehend things correctly at times. Oh well we will see how things work out. right now I am not thinking straight. talk with you later.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Sorry to hear the restrictions that this illness is causing you. Does the no driving apply for the future or just for a while? I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Thank God he got you through this. Just for a while until they can get a better handle on things.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Anyone heard from Richard, just wondering how he is doing. I am home. Got discharged from the hospital yesterday evening late. iT seems I have a heart condition that caused me to have strokes. I had SEVERAL MIni STROKES THAT Caused me to be hospitalized. I don't have any lasting effects so hope to be able to carry on with my life as usual. The doctor told me no more driving fOR me. I cAN NOT DRIVE THE TRUCK AND PULL THE CAMPER. I will be on a heart monitor for the next month or two. IT seems the bottom part of my heart isn't working as it should causing blood clots to form which caused the stroke. that's all for now. Talk with you later. I wish you a blessed day. be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell some one you love them. until next time I love you all and thank you for your support through all the years. It has been a great ride while it lasted. I feel tired and weak so I am going to rest for now

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Dale glad you made the trip without incident. Heavy rain when traveling is bothersome. You just have to slow down, take it easy and watch out for the low spots. So glad you are home and okay. I am going to bed I have has=d a busy day with the camper getting it ready for our trip to Modoc. Camp ground. Hope all is well with everyone. Wishing you a blessed evening and be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to pray for some one tonight.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Wanderlost that sounds great. Just might try it some day. Right now we are stuck close to home. We will make a short trip to Modoc South Carolina next week for a few days just to get out of the house. We haven't been anywhere in the camper in over a year. So it's time to stretch our wings and fly a little. Right now I am being messed with by a scammer. I am playing along until it's time for me to give money or my bank account number. Then all it stop. I have run a check on all the information provided and the names used in the scam are real people whose names have ben reversed, like using their last name as a first name and lawyers whose names have been reversed. Anyway right now it's interesting, but risky. Besides I could use $850,000.00. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

agteacher good luck on your diet. When I was first diagnosed as a type two diabetic I was on a diet. That lasted about one year before I went in insulin. Now I take as many as six shots of novolog per day. I find that fatty foods hurt me the worse. Rice, bread and anything fried will shoot my blood sugar up. II love fried fish and French fries, that's a no, no. I love milk and that also runs my blood sugar up. Good luck and hope you do well on a diet. I have learn to eat what I want and chase it with insulin. The bas boat deal has turned into a scam. So I won't be buying a bass boat. Can afford a new one not even a used one that's in good shape. so I will learn to fish from the bank and enjoy it. Besides son Scott has a nice one that I can sit my butt in when we can get together. Sue and I will be going to Modoc next week for a few days. I really like that campground. It has a lot of great memories. It's Old Fella's stomping grounds. I still think of that old dog just like he was still with us. I hope everyone is well and enjoying themselves. Are you staying home? Sue and I don't venture out. We stay at home. Our church us holding services outside under the pavilion. That works out okay as we can sit in open spaces and not get crowded in. it's called socialized distancing. That a new term I have learned in my old age. Oh well live has changed in the last few months, Social media has become a battle ground. Lost of angry people on there. I guess I have been guilty of spewing some venom on there. I am sorry if I have offended any of my friends on Face Book. I am trying hard not to spread angry or hurtful words on there. Sometimes I just can't help myself, sorry. Okay I need to get off of here and find something constructive to do.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone/ Found a much better deal on a smaller boat. It's a Bass boat 17 feet with all the bells and whistles. It's a Bass tracker. It seems the owner died four months ago and the wife is selling it for $1,400.00 , Says she wants it out of the yard as every time she sees it reminds her of her husband. It is two years old and I was told it was used very little. It has a 76 HP Mercury motor with depth finder and fish finder with a trolling motor. The pictures look like its brand new. We have been missing each other with phone calls I hope to connect sometime today and go pick it up. The Maco is too much boat for me. 26 feet with a 200 horse motor is something I really don't need. Besides things are looking up as far as us keeping the camper. Anyway tomorrow is another day and I will see what it brings. I feel good, I have been getting plenty of rest. I am sleeping later tan I used to. Getting to bed at a decent hour and sleeping until 9 to 9:30 makes things better. I hope all is okay with everyone. The weather here is beautiful. Iy has finally gotten to be spring time and almost summer. I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Things have gotten interesting here lately, A man has a 26' Custom Center Console Mako… with a 200 HP Suzuki motor talking trade on camper. He is asking $24,700 for the boat. it's a 2012 with tandem trailer. Looks in great shape. I don't know if this is something I want to do. I have talked with folks in the know about the boat and they say it is something folks would like to have. Maybe something to think about. I will wait and see what develops. I hope all is well with everyone. Just got back from church. We had an outdoor service this morning with 179 people in attendance. It was so nice to be outside in the warm sunshine with a cool soft breeze blowing. I am going to eat lunch so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me. Be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It's raining here this morning and 67 degrees. Tail of the Dragon sounds like a winding twisting road. There is a road in North Carolina that has such a name. The motorcycle guys love. It is close to Marshall, NC it. The fur babies are snug this morning as they lay and wait for the rain to stop. The grass has finally turned green. It has struggled this year with the weather being so unpredictable. WE didn't have any warm weather to speak of until last week. The nights were cold and the days were cool. WE didn't have much rain until about two weeks ago. Now we are wet down to the core. Our rivers and creeks are over the banks in many places. Some of our country side is flooded as is some of our nation. WE still haven't been anywhere with the camper. I called Camping world yesterday and they agreed to take it on consignment to see if they can sell it for me. I watched the movie Blanche last night. It's about two old time friends who made a bet of whose chicken can fly the furthest. It is based a true story about two friends who through out their lives have made best with other over many different things, This time they took two chicken up in an airplane to 1,000 feet and threw them out of the plane. The last one to land won the bet. Tommy had a chicken named Blanche and Clifford had a chicken named Red Baron. Red Baron was a roster and Blanche was a hen that was given to Tommy to help him get through his wife's passing. It was an interesting story. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Well it's bed time and I am tired. No one has reported that they have had the virus, so that's good. I am going to bed get a good night's sleep. God willing I will post in the morning and find out how everyone is doing. MY daughter seems to be doing okay. Her husband's funeral was Monday, It was graveside at the church. Ed was 77 years old and had lived a rough life. He was a rodeo man. Yes he rode the bucking horses and trained horses for a living, Had lots of broken bones that gave him trouble as he got older. But he enjoyed life and enjoyed working with horses. Robin will not carry on the horse ranch. She says she is not going to live that life of broken bones and torn muscles. THey have sold all the horses before Ed passed. Now she can relax and pleasure ride whne she gets the chance.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It's raining and cool here in the Deep South, Everyone has snuggled down waiting to see if the sun comes out. Midnight is asleep on top of the cat condo. while Dixie and Suzie are snuggled in their beds. We have nothing planned for the day, just do whatever we need to inside the house. The yard work will wait until it dries out. We have mulch sitting on the trailer waiting to be spread put on the flower beds outside. It can sit there until the cows come home as far as I am concerned. The Old Fella Burke Country Animal Rescue is still going strong. Margie is doing a great job of keeping things going. Every month they ship off about forty fur babies to the North East animal shelter so they can find their forever homes. This has worked well for all concerned. So glad to see the homeless puppies and adult dogs find a loving home. Old Fella would be proud. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It's cloudy this morning, looks like rain. Yesterday we got a heavy thunder storm, The wind blew like crazy and the rain fell in sheets, The temperature dropped by 12 degrees in a matter of a few minutes. This morning it is cool and we can expect more rain. THe fur babies are doing good. Lizzie the cat is running around acting crazy. Dixie was running through the house with her miss piggy toy. NOw she is resting in the lounge chair looking at me as if asking "What's next. Suzie is lying on the floor just wanting to be left alone. I might fo fishing today and add to the pot so we can have a great feast in a few days. I love fried fish especially fresh just out of the pond or river. I hope all is well with everyone, I am just getting lazy and want to either take a nap or just sit around watching the news and weather. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. The Old fella rescue is doing okay, just need some donations to keep things going.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Can you believe it is 85 degrees already this morning. Just hold on, it will change before the weekend is out. WE have had a lot od rain lately which cools things down. The camper is sitting in the back yard unused and waiting. I decided to Pinehurst for a few days to play some golf. Taking both of the son in laws and the twin daughters, Going to drive the Arnold Palmer 72 Lincoln when we go for a little bit of nostalgia. When I was in college we played a tournament there. That was 52 years ago. I didn't play that well, but I enjoyed the course. The old Lincoln will get some attention as being related to Arnold Palmer. Don't know exactly when we will be going, but sometime in June I expect. Son Scott declined the invitation saying he was done with Golf. That's ashamed because he was a scratch golfer at one time. He could hit a drive right down the middle of the fairway three hundred yards. His short game was exceptional. Wish I knew why he gave it up. I guess it was during the time of his racing career when things were going at a fast pace and there was no time for much else. Anyway I really believed he could have been a serious contender on the PGA tour at one time. Scott could do just about anything he set his mind to. Okay enough of that. I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning every one. I slept until 9:15 this morning. I got up at 5:am with low blood sugar. So I ate an early breakfast went back to bed and slept until 9:15. Now I am sitting at the computer typing on the Old Fella thread while Sue is preparing food for later in the day. Yesterday I mowed the lawn all 2 Acres of it and then repaired the flower bed that belongs to the neighbor that ran over with the lawn mower. Went to the lawn and garden supply store on Fairview to get mulch and while there a big thunder storm came through. When we got home we found everything still standing and in order. Much damage out in eth county however with power outages. The black cat named Mid night is still with us. Mid night seems to prefer our house and the Cat condo than her owners home. She is such a sweet cat. Yesterday when I went out on the front porch and sat in the rocking chair she jumped up in my lap wanting some love. She sleeps on top of the cat condo mostly instead of inside of it. Maybe she feels by being on top of it nothing can sneak up on her. Anyway we are supposed to have a great day today with plenty of sunshine and temps in the 80's. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. I slept until 9:15 this morning. I could have still lain in bed longer, but I was starting to feel guilty. It is a beautiful morning here in the Deep South. The sun is shinning and no dark clouds in the sky. We can expect more rain today in the late afternoon. The high today will be in the lower 80's. My son Scott is coming to see us and I am going to take him trout fishing in the mountains. That will be fun. I hope everyone is well and having a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. The doctor called this morning to report that the blood work showed I was healthy. Nothing going on there. So guess I am just lazy, or perhaps being 79 has caught up with me. Any way he says what ever I am doing just keep on doing it as the blood work shows I am very healthy. It is still raining here with rivers and creeks overflowing their banks. WE don't have serious flooding yet, but warning are out got id to experience some flooding. Last night I was thinking back to a fishing trip I made to the mountains a few years ago with both of the so in laws. I caught some nice Rainbow Trout on that trip, maybe its time to go back and see if I can repeat the same great time. I suppose I will have to wait for the water to go down or be swept away/ All of our rivers are swollen from the heavy rain. Bit anyway it something to look forward to. I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Walked outside and met Old Man winter. He's back. The wind is blowing very hard and it's cold. SUZIE WASN'T AT ALL HAPPY WITH THE WALK. IT'S COLD ENOUGH FOR A FIRE IN THE FIRE PLACE TONIGHT. I WOULDIKE TO HOOK UP THE CAMPER AND HEAD SOUTH. I GOT MY VISION BACK TODAY. HAD THE OPTOMATRIST MOVE THE TRI VOCALS UP IN THE LENS AND THAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE. i wasn't able to read, but my far vision was okay. Now my near site is good as well as my far sight. Midnight the kitty is back looking for company. He has become so loving. Fluf is also back and last night i saw the feral kitty. That is the first time i have seen the feral in months. I am typi g this on the phone, so i am not able to see the full page.just hope it looks okay.
