  I am a cretin.
I wallowed around in self pity all weekend and did not even get a short note out to let you know I was thinking about you and was sorry to hear about your hemorrhoid problem. Ouch is all I can say.

I think I wrote you about the last time I had a much less serious problem, when I had sort of coughed my way into a small hemorrhoid. Surgery. Now that certainly does not sound like any fun at all. Maybe it will not be needed?

[Editor] I had the surgery about two weeks ago and am feeling much better. The procedure was done in the doctor's office using local anesthetic. I was a little tender afterwards and painkillers helped me get through the first couple of days. But in the end (no pun intended) it was not as bad as I thought it would be and I'm glad I finally had it taken care of.

I do not know if you have kept up with Calulu's blog, but she is currently on the 'strongest pain meds allowed' and it is only taking the edge off her multiple problems with her shoulders, elbows and wrists. She is going to need surgery to fix the problem and the recovery is at least six months.

She used some voice recognition software and was complaining it did not like her southern accent. I told her it should get better as she trained it. She used the software to dictate the two page letter she sent to me.

I also received a refund from Hamilton today for the books Bobbielou ordered. One of the books was out of stock. Sometimes the refund goes to the person that orders, sometimes to the recipient. I will have to get a letter out to her tonight also.
Hi guys! Pete, you are NOT a cretin! And Jim, looks like you are not a pain in the a__ anymore, that is, if you ever were! heehee! Seriously, I'm happy to hear you are doing well Ed. I was blessed with those d___ things both times I gave birth.....see?...it could have been worse! You could have had to push out a baby the size of a large football and not shaped near as conducive to the shape of the place it came out!! AND THEN AFTERWARD, you'd have to deal with Mr. H. and his extended family members as they "pop" in for a long and weary visit (yes, much like in-laws)!! Ok, I'll leave you alone. I imagine you have heard all the puns and jokes by now! Just an aside, I HATE getting all the news two weeks late!! And Pete, as I have said before, you are much to hard on yourself. You are only human like the rest of us (surprise!!) and we all have bad days as well as good. Granted you have a much better reason that some of us to have a bad day and to have them more frequently. You also have all those ugly guys around you that would probably love to beat you up if you just look at one of them wrong, but you are too busy beating yourself up! Aren't you tired and sore yet? Take it easy on my friend! Yes, you. As a matter of fact, try treating yourself like you would your best friend (Ed?). Now, would you beat up on Ed if he did not do everything you thought he should every weekend? hmmmmm....NOT! Oh well, something to think about. By the way, hope you are enjoying your books by now. I especially would like to know what you think of the one written about the New York Prison System and all it's faults......... Guess I'll say "adios amigos" as we have learned to say here in the south with the Mexico border so close and let you enjoy anticipating the holiday cards I sent out that...you....will PROBABLY ALREADY HAVE by the time you read this Pete!! Urrrggghhh! Ed, take care and Merry Christmas/Happy New Year to you and yours too!! Pete, thanks for warning me not to read on about the Octopus you wrote about in a recent post....but curiousity killed the cat and I read on.....YUKKKK!!!! I don't suck crawdads either!! Actually, the only seafood I like is pan-fried catfish....ummmm. But when you get out, you guys come on down to Texas and perhaps Jennifer and I can take you out for some good 'ole southern Steak and Potatoes....unless you would rather try the calf fries!!?? Now that's what I call..Finger Lickin' GOOOOOD!! (OH NO! I did it again. I keep getting the award for the most "wordy" comment of the month....someone else please rescue me...I think I've done it again!) Keep smiling Pete (It'll make everyone wonder what you've been up to!) and I'll keep prayin' for ya!! Your friend, Bobbielou
