Post Trilobite

For me it was 'Save it for later' by the English Beat. I had the last minute recorded on cassette tape right off the radio, and it wasn't much of a hit, so I never heard it played again. Mind you, there was no internet or search engines of any kind, and I wasn't going to stand on the street corner playing it for strangers until someone recognized it.

Fortunately, Pete Townshend did a cover of it a couple of years later. Being a big time Who fan, I was going to buy the album anyway...

is it wrong of me to want to go drinking out of boredom?

this girl is wanting to hang out practically all the time, it would be different if she could be more physically active cause then we could go do stuff without EMTs getting involved...maybe i'll work her out like a dog til she just gets sick of me and leaves me alone?

WHY AM I SO MEAN. it's beer-o-clock...think i might go down to the local VFW sometime...wish it was closer. dammit

Of course not. Boredom always breeds prudence. ...right?

yeah...im getting bored of this girl. i guess i'm learning how it feels to be on the other side of a one-sided relationship. i'm not mean i just don't care. i like her but i don't truthfully see it going anywhere beyond a friends with benefits stage.

Why? All the same thing. No separation.

Dad is doing good, though BS to be in this situation, and confused as to why I can't just discharge him and let him go home. God, I wish it was that simple...

My stepmom is back in the hospital, in pretty serious condition. Fluid in her lungs, trouble with some other things.

So my dad can't go home until she is back on her feet and can take care of herself and look after him. Which might be months... If ever.

But he can only stay at the VA nursing home for 30 days... About half of which he's already used up.

So I have to find him somewhere else to go, or someone to move into the trailer with him to look after him 24/7 before I leave on Monday... And figure out how it's going to get paid for, as so far the very cheapest I've seen so far is a couple of hundred dollars a day.

I do have all the legal paperwork giving me Power of Attorney for dad, and my stepmother's niece has the same for her... But now we have to run around to all the banks and get them to accept us, and show us the current balances, and release funds.

I hope we are making progress... It's hard to tell, since there's so much to do and think about that its utterly overwhelming.

The days are dragging on though. The opposite of time flying when having fun, I guess.

More like the experience of taking a long test in school. You wait forever between looking up at the clock, only to find a minute or two have passed.

I'm taking my dad out of the home for the afternoon to see my stepmom, and maybe to stop back at his place to pick up anything he needs.

The VA put me up in a guest house for the last couple of nights, and it's pretty nice... but they need the room back tonight so I guess I'll stay at dad's trailer.

It's a pretty long haul between his place and the VA. I've been clocking a lot of hours and miles on his car.

I'm not quite sure how I'm going to get to the airport on Monday though. Hopefully somebody can give me a ride.. But I may have find a shuttle or rent a car service.

But that's low on the priority list right now... I gotta get my dad out, or at least have a plan in place and a ball rolling on that before I head back home.

My head is spinning...

Sorry, ed. Hopefully you will find a solution.

It looks like we are going to have some serious thunderstorms and maybe flash flooding around here tomorrow, so I did my long run for the week today. 9 miles. Run, Forrest, run!

ed, is he a member of a local vfw? maybe check out the local VFWs in the area and see if they can help out, if anything they could provide you with resources or advice on what to do. i'm glad you're doing the right thing, hopefully it pays off for you in one way or another.

@keyan: nice, i wish i could run for distance...2-3 miles is my limit. i just did 2 miles of 30/60 intervals today after taking my dog for a 40 minute walk...ended up walking to the mall and getting more "candy" from GNC...C4 Extreme, Mega Men Powered Ripped Vitapak Program, bunch of samples too, ended up missing the bus by a minute so i walked 2 miles home. so basically a 3 hour walk with the intervals included for 23 minutes of it. legs are sore as **** but i feel happy that it's nice out to enjoy it, trying to cut weight and time so i pass the army physical fitness test in a few weeks. i want to do more but i don't want to risk over-training injuries and being unable to walk without excruciating heel pain.

me and my friends are planning on going to a ComiCon this year...i'm trying to decide on a costume, i want something easy maybe recognizable...thinking of character from Far Cry 3 (specifically since Far Cry 4 got announced recently!!!) i want to either dress up as Hoyt or as one of the molotov-throwing pirates (i'd have bottles of water in place of alcohol of course) think the molotov dude would be cool to go as, i just need to go to a army/navy surplus store and get some bdus and leather jungle boots.

R15, I try to make it to one of my local cons, called Super Megafest, every year, but it was often tough trying to get my travel figured out. I was able to a couple of years ago, and wanted to attend last year, but one of my bowling association events got in the way of my attendance last year (it's the weekend before Thanksgiving).

No, he's not a VFW member. His military career consisted of basic training, then 2 years playing guitar in the army band. He never saw action, and I don't think he ever left the states while serving.

But he enlisted close enough to the end of WW2 to kinda get lumped in to that generation... Though he was mainly playing for the guys coming back from Europe who were involved in reconstruction over there. He turned 18 in 1948... Though I think he lied and enlisted a bit earlier than that.

you could still check though because they are known to deal with the VA's bs and could probably still provide you with some guidance as to what to do.

well i think that vitapak may have worked or something, or just helped get rid of excess water in my system, down 4 pounds.

this girl really wants to be my girlfriend...i guess this could be a good thing? maybe i'll just accept it, it's nice to have someone that really cares about me and wants to be with me..

It's not a good thing. You don't like her, remember? It's nice to have someone who really cares about you and wants to be with you if you really care about her and want to be with her.

Perhaps you should sell her to Ed. I think he could certainly use a bit of propping up (and an extra pair of hands) these days. Then you could buy yourself a car, go pick up Kylilin and take him to the auto parts store...

So, I was a part of a pull pad/full contact football game.

First, I'm horribly out of shape, which helped very little.

Second, I hyper extended my left knee, which is also the leg that was victim to a severe ankle sprain and never healed right because at the time, I was like "**** CRUTCHES!".

So my entire left leg from my knee down just hurts. Not spikey pain, but that annoying dull pain that won't go away that every once in a while when I move certain ways spikes to "WTF STOP MOVING".

Yeah, that's been the past 7 or so days. Whoot.

Last full day in Florida... gotta make it count, I guess. Though I'm pretty sure I'll have to be back at least once before the summer is over.
It feels like I've been down here a month, going non-stop... and yet, like I've barely accomplished anything.
Toured a bunch of assisted living places with my stepmother niece (first cousin by marriage, I guess...) and will probably look at a couple more today.
It would be great to make a decision on where they are going to go before I fly out... but I don't think we'll be ready for that, and I'll have to do it by phone and fax from up north.
This is what we are leaning towards though: http://www.atlantisassistedliving.com/
I have to come back to grab his guitars and amps for safe keeping. Once my cousin leaves town, the trailer is effectively abandoned, as it seems like there's no no way they will ever be able to return to live there. The park they are in is patrolled, and the next door neighbors are keeping eyes on the place... but the thought of all his stuff just sitting there in a trailer at effectively 'hurricane ground zero' makes me uneasy.
Plus: the place needs tons of repairs and clean-up... both of which will be easier once it's emptied out. and the thought of a bunch of repair-guy strangers tromping around possibly unsupervised in a trailer full of valuable vintage instruments makes me pretty uneasy.
I'm thinking about flying down late June, early July (the weekend of the 4th, maybe...) then renting a van or small box truck and driving all his stuff back up north. I should have a bit more time-off built up by then, and that will already be a long weekend for us at work anyways. Road trip anyone? I will be looking for someone to share the driving... I'll pay all the expenses, and you'll get your pick of a vintage Gibson at the end. I'm more than half serious about that... I don't have room for the guitars I already own... adding his collection is going to tax the little storage space I already have to the limit. I'm probably going to have to unload a few of his, as much as it will pain me to do so. We might need the funds to support their care eventually anyway. They do have a nice chunk of savings... but at a couple of thousand bucks a month for elder care, that could get depleted surprisingly quick.
But whoever helps me empty his place out and helps me with the driving, I think I'll let them pick one out and take it. As long as they promise to keep it and play it, and not just unload it for profit immediately anyway...
It's unlikely he'll be able to have more than a guitar or two, a very small amp, and a tape deck/CD station wherever he ends up. If that...
It's been a depressing week. I'm looking forward to being home... though I wish I was heading back feeling more accomplished. Though I know we got a lot done... there's just so much left to do.
And I know that no matter how enthusiastically I sell it, he's never going to be happy in any situation where he doesn't have complete independence... But I think he gets that she'll never be able to take care of herself again, let alone look after him, so I think he's grudgingly resigned to the new reality.
Time to get going... much left to do.

*Sigh*

Arrow Ass, gas or grass

You know I would do it in a heartbeat. But I'm on the wrong coast, and have a full plate already. Wouldn't know what to do with a guitar, but one could always trade for a fine sword...

Anyone else in that part of the country with time to spare and a driver's license?

epic ****ing weekend. they keep getting better and better!!! last night went out with army buddies for one our our brother's 21st birthdays...got him super-annihilated great memories. lol buncha stuff happened and they left me at a hotel when i was checking out so i had to walk 2 miles home and get ready to go hiking with my date and friends, it was about a 3-4 hour hike then we went to a nice restaurant and had some good food and drinks, now i'm completely beat up...i overdid it with the hiking i think, i was making everyone laugh, pics are going up on my facebook sometime tonight or tomorrow of the craziness. i'm so tired now and my legs are really sore. i'm glad i met this girl, also i did tell my mom i'm seeing her and of course she's all 'overly-concerned mother' on me. so annoying, but after the last one i don't really blame her i just hope both of my parents don't go nutty on me and rushing me to make anything serious about it, **** always gets ****ed up that way. i'd rather just have fun and be friends instead of trying to put on a show for people and be someone i'm not. my 2 closest friends like her, so that means alot to me as far as if i want to date her for an extended period of time or whatever. i figure as long as i'm happy, why not? she doesn't want kids and she likes the same things i do plus she's not a bitch (so far lol). tomorrow im gonna relax most of the day i think, do some cleaning and play with my dog since he was home by himself for most of the day and all of last night.

Ed; If i had any more vacation time, I'd help out. Epic Lucasforums Road Trip of Awesome (2014!!).


I have some vacation time after July 1, so if you need help after then, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Wi-fi in the sky. Posting this from the plane... 32,000 feet.

Great. Now my phone battery will be toast by the time we land for sure... Though I could break out the laptop, I guess.

Well, I'm home.

Managed to start the discharge process/ move into his assisted living place before I left yesterday... so that's a relief. He'll be in the new place on Wednesday. I wish I was down there to help out getting him settled in the new spot, but as of yesterday, I'm pretty sure I have bottomed out on my Paid Time Off, and I'd have to go to unpaid leave if I stayed any longer... tricky when you are spending money on hotel rooms and meals, as well as trying to cover all your normal bills back home.

So it's back to the grind today... though the next couple of weeks at work are thankfully light.

I hope dad is happy in the new place. He will have a lot more freedom of movement than he did at the VA, and his own private room with his own bathroom... so that's a huge improvement.

But, if in a couple of months, after my stepmother joins him there for a bit, if they decide they don't like this place, at least then we'll have the luxury of time picking out a different place for them.

This seems like a nice, friendly place to me though, and it has a good reputation among everybody we asked about it... but I'm not the one who will be living there 24/7.

losing weight pretty rapidly...it's either the vitapak+c4 extreme combo i'm on or it's a combo of that plus all the walking i've been doing. cant wait to get under 200 pounds again.

Late chiming in on this, but you have this from Chris Rock's "No Sex": "If your girlfriend has been dating you for a month and hasn't met your friends, she's not your girlfriend."

Got home from work today. Passed out. That's what the end of 2 months of high stress will do for you.

I have a bunch of stuff to do here... but it will wait. Sleep now.

my friends liked her, plus she puts up with alot of me busting on her which is funny as hell, if i said 1/8 of the things i say to her to my last girlfriend, my ex would have left the first week of being with me, plus she just rubbed everybody the wrong way with everything she said and did, this one is the complete opposite of that.

made her work out with me from 1:30-6:30, then took her to eat at the mall and took her to the movie theatre that is downtown, i never been in there, but it was nice. we saw The Amazing Spiderman 2, tho i hadn't seen the first one (****in netflix not putting that on there yet), really good movie. then we walked 2 miles to my place to get her stuff then i walked her home.

oh yes, there is a twist to all this...another of my friends who we'll call 'k' (female), messaged me out of the blue on facebook after seeing the pictures and told me that girl is crazy because k and her now-husband went on a double date with her husband's friend and the girl i'm seeing, who we'll call 'p'...k asked p how her relationship was going and p allegedly got on facebook and told k off (cursed her out, called her a jew, said that k and k's boyfriend relationship would end in turmoil cause they spend too much time together, etc), k said she told p boyfriend what had happened (they were only going out for a few weeks) and a few weeks later he dumped her.

so, i tell this girl me and my buddy are friends with 'm' (i really like her, she's really pretty girl) about what happened and this was after the hiking, and m said that she met k before and she didn't really care for her. i think i can relate to p getting mad at k, but i don't think it was because of what she said to p, more like how she said it...then K messaged me today asking if i was still hanging out with P, and i'm like 'yeah until she does something crazy'...

the thing that pisses me off about this is that K stopped talking to me after she got married, or wouldn't have even said anything, so i think she's the one with the problem, cause why would she really give a **** about me? P has been nothing but nice to me since i've been seeing her, but then again, i've had that happen before. i mean i really like her but idk if it'll last because **** just likes to fall apart and go crazy on me, but until i start getting stressed out or any crazy symptoms show up, i'm not going to just dump this person.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

yeah idk, worst sex ever so bad that i think i'm actually the one being used for sex. (is that even possible?) i just don't know what to do, maybe i should just be like 'no more sexy time, i just want to be friends....' cause that's just how i feel no matter how hard i try to feel anything...i'm so ****ed up.

Dad getting settled into his new place:





He looks happy to be out of the VA. I wish I had been there to help get him settled in... but at least he's in the new place.

Your Dad looks pretty good, Ed, and that place looks pretty awesome.

Let me know the when/how of Florida, and I'll see what I might be able to do. The plane tickets might be an issue though. If I can swing it, I'll be glad to help out.

No idea as of yet. A lot depends on when my stepmom can be checked into the same place, and how many days of time off I can build up. And if they like it there or want to be moved...

If my dad has the room I want to leave him as many of his guitars/ amps/ etc... as I can at his place.

But I'll keep you posted...

STDs? You mean Imperial star destroyers? Well, no one wants that.

Looks like a nice place for your dad. Must have been a lot of work, and it looks like you did well. Good son!

I hope he likes it, and actually feels that way about me.

It's an incredibly tough thing telling your parent that his freedom and former way of living have to be given up, probably forever, for his own good. There will be a lot of guilt for me around this decision for a long time... until I'm really sure he's happy there anyway.
My cousin overheard him telling my stepmother that he liked the place, that it was really nice, and that we picked out a good one for them. I hope he really feels that way, and isn't just saying that to make everybody feel better.
My dad has never been the type to mince words, keep his opinions to himself, and to spare feelings if he feels strongly about something. So it's promising... but I'll try to get him on the phone later tonight and see if I can get his real impressions out of him.
