...Did you notice my last post? I am done with my venting and in a better mood today. I think it is the giddiness of being up most of the night. Had the wife at the hospital for abdominal pains until 4:30 this morning....turned out to be kidney stones. 5 to be exact. What fun we are having now.

They would not let me run around the hospital and take pictures:( What a bummer.


I've been on the road all day (airplane actually) and just read this one. I hope she's doing well. Take care of your wife and don't sweat the small stuff.

Is the second hyphen actually needed for the new word? I am by no means an English Major, barely even speak Merican.


The over-use of hyphens is a time-honored tradition among sophomorically-inclined acedemic types. (btw, look up the origin of "sophomore" sometime.)

Guess I should have added that I do like your new word of "non-whiney-ness".

Moved down and then up a little. Still hangin on.

BTW. My wife is feeling a little better. Hasn't passed the stones yet, but apparently the drugs are doing their job. Thanks for the kind words. Laters.

I am glad this challenge is almost over. Had a 5.4 for a few hours on the second day, but have been at 5.1xx for the rest of the time.

No, I'm pretty sure I couldn't suck much more.

Note the one comment. That's a new record for me. Before this challenge I've always gotten at least three comments. Only the incredibly mediocre and boring get away with this. Really bad shots get creamed by commenters. And great shots get tons of accolades.

I get one comment

Still - I stand firm in my conviction to remain non-whiney as I acknowledge that I should have just gone to bed early last Wednesday.

Hey... I made that comment! Glad you find it useful..
:)

My apologies to those who did not get a vote or comment from me... I was really caught up with work these couple of days.. thus I missed my commitment of 100%votes and comments...

Will do so for this challenge.. :)
