MidSummer's Night Reality

   I now officially HATE Summer....if it's not 100 Degrees, then it's 'freak' summer STORMS (Y'know, where the electricity goes away ). 

 

     But, I also have something new and interesting: The VA and I are actively planning to replace my knees, one at a time. (My latest ortho appointment showed my latest hip replacement healing nicely -not as fast as last time and I have to go to Physical Therapy twice a week, still no problems)

Oh...and Yeah

              I am currently recovering from the latest hip replacement (BOTH are now steel/polymer/porcelin contraptions). And I have to do the PT -on my own; HA! It's a good thing that I was an NCO, otherwise that would never happen- and just simply ....heal ? recover?... but even now, the VA and I are talking about which knee would I like

 

                Wargames come into their own, at times like this.  As bad and as weird as it feels to have a major part of my body now…

Why I cant play a Wargame

.....Because Life The Universe, and EVERYTHING says so.....

 

                I had "World at War #22 Minsk '44, Set up and Playing it (5th Gds Tanks Corps bounced off 5th Pz Div, but the Soviets went screaming through the south, aiming for Minsk - I had merely KG Anhalt down there- and the reinforcemtn rolls for the Germans were Horrible....

Easter Update: Now carrying a card for TSA Screeners.

 SO, two weeks ago, March 22nd, I had Hip Replacement Surgery for my Left Hip (to go along with my Right Hip Replacement)..

 

               And the Surgery went fine, done here at VA Medical center Ann Arbor Michigan, accomplished by the same surgeon that did my right hip several years ago !  I am still in The VA Med center, doing nicely according to surgeons, physicians, physical therapists and fellow patients. This VA is one of the best in the country, partnered with the…

The VA loves me

  I supose I should inform you.

 

                   The New Date for my surgery is 22 March. I need to have some dental surgery done ( a tooth is about to lose a filling - maybe) and I am not allowed to have anything done for two years after the hip replacment.

 

                       Yup.

 

                        Sucks?

 

 

                       Yup.

 

                        but the end is in sight....finally.…

SNAFU

Well, at least I have an firm date for my hip-replacement surgery: January 11, 2012. 

   Otherwise, life still sucks....

 

    No, actually, it doesnt. I am truly blessed by the friends that I have. Truly Blessed. When my life went south I was (and am) receiving such help and support- from all the friends that I somehow was fortunate to have made- that every day it still leaves me speechless   .The word" Great" doesnt even begin to describe it.

Yes, missing the usual CSW...TGIF, and it should be back !

I also miss The Marketplace folder ! ! !



It's amazing to me how much I used ConSimWorld. I use WebGrognards alot; BGG Very little. The Forums at CSW just have SO MUCH stuff on the games and the systems that it really puts a crimp in my playing any of my old games. There are some games that I do have "Up-to-Date" errata, etc compiled and stored with the game. But I noticed this past week as I pulled out some older games that I would automatically go to the games folder and see what… Continue

And......I told you so......

I was thinking about letting it go a Full Year since I had last posted, but No.



I do get involved with various things. I do try and keep up with CSW The Main page.



But, I DO NOT UNDERSTAND " HOW " people manage to keep "Blogs". The mere Act of doing things "Blog-Worthy" keeps me from being able to Blog! Then I see that not only do people manage to write in their own Blogs, they also manage to keep track of Other people's Blogs !!!



Then, there are the… Continue

Busy

Quite busy. TWO Car accidents: my wife (not major, only a rear bumper to replace) and my step-daughter (her van -which we co-signed for- utterly demolished; she is not hurt, at all, fortunately,).



I am now 2nd Vice-Commander for my American Legion Post. Always a nice feeling, winning elections.

George W, Bush is going to buy me a Wargame...or three.....or four....

My wife and I have had our taxes done, refund received, since the end of January. Now, of course, all talk is centered on the Rebate Checks to be sent out in May. Due to the Way Life Goes, My wife put her name first on the Tax Return. Had she put MY NAME first, we would be receiving the Rebate Direct Deposit on May 2nd. Her SSAN last two digits are -OF COURSE- "99".



But, that's alright. It merely gives me more time to see what Game I want to buy...
