Ran out of Pain meds did you ?  its ok Frank that cast will be off here in a couple of days and you will get to see what insects home stetted on your arm.  Make sure you Take some wet wipes with you when they do take it off, the cast techs usually do not take any time to clean that smelly thing before putting on the new one. 

A new one?  What  ya taking bout Buck ?


 

Nov 6, 2011 I decided " I had enough with this sh*t "

I quit because I just got tired of the life under a rock, dark and with not enough air to breathe waiting for the day to get crushed!

Alcohol to a quit is like Kryptonite to Superman

Stop, Think and then React. Not React,Stop and then Think

Practice does not make it perfect, makes it permanent. Practice the right things!

Quitting is by far the best decision for the rest of your life.

If a Doctor gives you 6 months to live, would you start living after the first three? Quit now!

" I am a puff away form a pack a day"

Once you stop puffing or having Nicotine in any form, then and only then your symptoms will stop.

I quit with a frozen turkey. Once I felt comfortable with my quit,  I ate it.

Life is such a good teacher, that if you don't learn the lesson it will repeat it to you.

Things began to get better when I realized I would remain quit even if things never got any better.

They will usually replace the cast after a couple weeks with a new one !  The one you have on should be getting mighty ripe by now.

they will remove it peel all the dead skin off, use a mild insecticide just incase they miss any lava or eggs, and put a new one on for another two to three weeks

I was listening to a news reporter on the radio talking about seeing the badly burned horses. My thought was why weren't they put down right away. I hate hearing about animals suffering.

I pulled up next to a brand new beautiful BMW today stopped at a traffic light when suddenly a huge plume of smoke drifted out of the driver's window.

 

IN MY OPINION it was suddenly considered a lemon, working properly or not, it wasn't manufactured to smell like nasty old cigarette smell. http://www.dca.ca.go...les/englemn.pdf

Would a sauerkraut air freshener help?........lol.


It's easier to keep a quit than to start one.
