  • When I was a man, I put aside childish things, OT

    Child custody in progress (daughter), raising money, Grandbaby being born soon raising money.

    I got a checkup for my heart, ekg here in a few days. All this stress may kill me. On the job the heat is whipping me.

    Just sold the harley on ebay. It was sitting there anyway, no desire. I think I may find a old rd350 or rd400 yammaha. Or maybe just the 400 honda from the shop and not own anything.
    It'd run 100mph, get good mileage and was fun, you know like a bicycle. Except you didn't have to pedal.

      I have been through this battle, wasted alot of money, never got my son and my other half is starting to go thru this issue. Her X has never paid a red cent or even a blue cent. Doesn't come to court dates, yet still nothing happens.

      So I feel for you, be glad your option isn't a Huffy.

        This says something for having a few little talks (complete with ass kickings, if necessary) BEFORE the kid runs off and marries a goober.
        The grandkids won't love you for interfering; they will blame you for breaking up a pair smitten with true love.
        I find, in old age, that I truly LIKE being the family outcast; none of the little perps trying to shoo me off life's plane so they can peddle my belongings and PARTY.
        Count your blessings, not your afflictions. It has happened to many of us; we survive and are sadderbutwiser.
        But, here's my obligatory "boo-hoo for you" anyway. (Bra-a-a-a-ck)

          It would not do me good to have a daughter.If she should ever end up divorced I would have to kill my son in law and last I looked it's still illegal to do so.


          George,holy s--- seven months?For a doctors appointment?Man I'm glad I only have to wait 3 or 4 hours.

          Just what do you folks do in an emergency?

            Emergency room waits are about 4 to 10 hours. Even if I do make it to Sudbury on Tuesday and actually get to see the specialist it is more than likely that whatever cource of treatment he thinks is nessasary will be months or even years away.

            It is an old story here in Canada. Thrud is having the same kind of problems in Alberta.

              to be honest, here in the states (new york)I have never been to the emergency room by myself or with someone else when it has not been at least a 3 hour wait in the reception area and then another 3 hours behind the doors, regardless of the severity of the situation (unless brought in by ambulance or profusely bleeding from gut neither of which I've experienced but have seen)

                If you have a large bank account, look for all the medical care you can afford. THE doctors will see to it they get most your money before you pass away.

                If you are poor, on social security, look to be sent home to die when there are treatments available to prolong your life.

                They told me about my friend, They need the hospital bed for people who are going to get well. Not, enjoy life, each precious moment with loved ones and friends.

                Same way with our judicial system, you can have all the innocence you can afford. If you are poor, you go to prison on circumstancial evidence.

                Times are a changing.

                      Dave, You seem to have more than your share of problems, first you have to decide what are the real problems and then let what isn't go.
                      I know you are big dude so maybe in the morning you should get out and walk for awhile, help to lose some weight and clear your head, If you die you won't be around to help anyone. I get up every morning any say it's good to be alive, just that little thought can go along way, take time to really look at the sky and trees.
                      As hard as it is sometimes the best thing to do with a child is to say, you dug the hole, now dig yourself out, I let my boy sit in jail one time even though I could have paid the bail with what I had in my wallet.
                      Helping sometime just encourages bad behavior.
                      As for the RD buy a 400 enduro, big enough to pull you around, slow enough you can enjoy the scenery and you can ride it down that old farm lane you always mean't to find out where it led by never did.
                      peace
                      Non, je ne regrette rien.

                            SEE, you are perking up (bike sale). Think positively, not negatively.

                            Loved that pict tho.

                              We've been raising my granddaughter since she was 4 1/2. She's almost 8 now, and my son still won't sign legal custody to us; if we want it we have to take him to family court. (He still claims her on his taxes, while we can't even claim child care expenses.)

                              My better half (and she is) we were planning on splitting up 3 1/2 years ago, she stayed because the little girl needed someone competent to raise her. My granddaughter mind, not hers.

                              Fortunately, the little one is a pleasure to have around. The other day she was mad at me so she went to live in the woods. I found her in the wooded back yard, lying down in the rain on a stack of fence panels, with her raincoat, hood and boots, a blanket, and her suitcase. She's not allowed to leave the yard without permission so that's as far as she went!!

                              My older sister and her husband, both retirees, have adopted two little nieces. That was supposed to be temporary care but their mother died.

                              And my younger sister has an adopted son with fetal alcohol problems, she's now raising his daughter, about the same age as ours.

                              There's lots of us second-time-around'ers. Welcome to the club! You'll have an apprentice for all your projects.
