Boo hoo

Oh, lawd, the old tee-hees are proving elusive these days around El Rancho Pendejo.

Mister Boo’s post-surgical recuperation from bladder surgery last Wednesday has been both messier and noisier than I anticipated, and it has not helped that Herself has pissed off to New Orleans for a week on a work junket that just happens to occur in the middle of Jazz Fest.

The Big Easy, this place she is not, cher. Les bon temps, they do not rouler.

There is, however, light at the end of the tunnel. This morning The Boo took the last of his antibiotics and pain meds, and tomorrow the Cone of Shame comes off. The peeing and pooping is occurring mostly outdoors, which is nice. But I laid in another 50-pack of Boots & Barkley extra-large training pads anyway, just in case the flood returns to Katrinaesque proportions.

Well, I wish I was in New Orleans … I can see it in my dreams. …

    Oy, gevalt! This geographical bachelor gig is not all it’s cracked up to be, brother. Facetime makes it a little more bearable. Bad news about our man Bernie yesterday. But I did get a ride in this morning complete with having to wait for turkeys and deer to cross the road.

      Church, brother; church.

      (I immediately liked that synonym for “Word!” the second Skinny Pete uttered it on “Breaking Bad.”)

      I’m pooped. Always have trouble sleeping with an ailing critter in the house, and I’ve been getting up at 1:30 a.m. to let The Boo out for a squirt, so mostly I sleep poorly until then, and then equally poorly afterward while waiting for Turk to sound reveille at 4:30 or so.

      I expect you’re pooped your own bad self, wrangling a change of quarters mostly solo.

      Still, could be worser: An old buddy crashed his bike the other day; broke a collarbone so badly he needed surgery to have a few aftermarket parts installed. Talk about a fella who’s gonna have trouble sleeping for a while. …

        I am a little pooped. Plus cooking for one and eating alone stinks to high heaven. Yep, just like a “Dead Skunk in the Middle of the Road.” But, breakfast this morning was pleasant. I had the company of the May issue of Adventure Cyclist magazine with your nifty review of the Marin Four Corners Elite. I have these two comments: Aaron Abrahams is a Sierra Vista native and nice guy that grew up in a bike shop (Sun and Spokes) that his dad, Dan, owned; I would want the 36 tooth chainring on the Elite along with TRP Spyke brakes.

    Good to hear Boo is progressing. Hope your sleep quality will improve as he gets better and the household goes back to normal. I understand that hyper vigilance when taking care of a sick pet. Boo is very lucky that you can arrange your schedule to be home with him.
    Good performance by Tom. It takes moxie and strength to sound so wasted.

    Check out this Phlegmish cycling shrine.

    Glad to hear Mr. Boo is on the mend. I hope its a fast recovery and then maybe the Turk will start to sleep in a bit.

  5. John ONeill Says:

    I can sympathize with Mr. Boo. As you well know.

    I was going to complain about another windy day, but then I looked at the Duke City forecast. Hold on to your cycling cap or it will end up in Oklahoma!
