A good friend of mine, just 48 years old, recently had a stroke in the middle of the night. Luckily his wife woke up and called EMS. He's coming along slowly, although, His biggest obstacle is speech.

Good luck on your recovery, G'man. Stay positive and have a damn beer if you want one.

Hey again, been out all day. Man it sure is good to hear from AZ. I was imagining him under a bus or a horse from the inaugural parade. Our preacher just had a stroke. It was the terrible kind of stoke, I forget what it is called. He was not expected to live. The kind that the TPA stuff doesn't work on. He had it Thanksgiving week and still can't speak or do much with his left side. He's been in re-hab for weeks. Going to walk. See y'all later.

Darn driveway is in the shade and has a slight slope away from the garage. One step out and down I slid. Son came out and slid then plop. He managed to get back up to the garage and pulled me in with a broom. We just poured hot water on it to thaw it. Thankfully, it's aobut 40 out so maybe it'll dry before night.

Yeah, everything here that was shoveled has melted clean, even the stuff in the shade, like my steps and driveway. But it is all wet. Very wet. If the temperature drops it is going to be a sheet of ice.
Hubby never believes me. He will be driving home in ice.

Don't suppose you have a security camera that got that on tape? I'd buy a copy.

It was pretty funny. Especially when son fell....twice (once I was sure he wasn't hurt).

That's hilarious! I like that the guy in charge of the sign was just like, yeah, that was funny, but not what it's supposed to be used for. At least he admits it was funny and had a sense of humor about it! I love Austin!

So, I had a delayed start this morning due to ice. I was happy and excited I got an extra two hours of sleep! So, I walk out to my car in a good mood all ready to go. Even when I see ice on my car I think noting of it. "Oh, haha there's some ice on my car. Poor car, she's probably cold!" I unlock my car using the button and all's well until I try to open my door. It doesn't open. koi! My car is frozen shut... I pull on it until I'm afraid I'm going to break the door handle off and walk around to pop the trunk. The trunk pops and I'm able to open it with only a little struggle. I consider climbing through my car (you can put down the back seat to get into the cabin of the car) to try to force the door open from the inside. I'm dressed for work, though and don't really feel like climbing, so I decide to make this a last resort. It occurs to me that I might need to pry my way in. So I take my keys and dig at the ice on the outline of the door and force it open. "Yes! It's open I'm good! I'll only be about 10 minutes late!" I climb in, shut the door, look out the windshield and koi! I can't see anything through the ice. I turn on the car (thank goodness it starts without issue) and turn my defrosters on hot and wait. This is taking too long; I'm late and it's not melting fast enough. So, being the impatient person that I am I rummage through my glove box (that I wished had contained gloves because my hands/fingers are numb by this point) and find old sunglasses, car repair receipts, an fm iPod transmitter and a plastic spatula-looking thing. So, I take the spatula-looking thing and start hacking at my windshield hoping that I'm not scratching the glass but not really doing much to avoid it. Thirty minutes later, my fingers are REALLY numb, but there's enough ice off the windshield to see through it... mostly... I'm nearly 45 minutes late to work by now, but I'm in my car driving the 10 minutes to work. That's when it all occurs to me - you had a 2 hour delay for work this morning because of below freezing temperatures and rain. You live in an apartment complex without a garage or even covered parking, OF COURSE your car would be frozen shut! OF COURSE you're going to have to scrap ice off your windshield! But, spending my entire life on the southeast coast of Texas these thoughts never crossed my mind before hand when it would have done me some good. So, I get to work and no one's mad I was late, thankfully! I was, however, made fun of all day for being a complete and total ditz...

Oh well, I guess I deserved it...

Could have been worse- you could have broken your key off in the doorframe trying to pry it open...
