    He would invite us to his shows.
    I totally let him down.
    And I felt shitty about it when he died for not taking him up on invitations to chill.

    When I went to my dad's funeral it seemed from my vantage point that thr best man there was the neighbor down the street who would come play dominos with him once a week. Knowing my dad that was his favorite person in the world.
    Limey wanted people to play with.
    I completely understand.
    Now.

    been there bro
    sucks that we sometimes don’t see things right in front of us
    until later, like you said, and then suddenly it’s all so clear
    you look back, and it’s like “how did i not see that?”
    maybe at the time we don’t want to see
    or perhaps we’re not ready
    idk

    " Not so very long ago
    Life used to be a blast
    Now I look a backward glance
    And know why so many live in the past"...

    I have some questions about covid.
    Has anyone here gotten the omnicorp virus yet?
    Because my mom and uncle are both coughing a lot since yesterday.
    A lot of people have been getting sick lately.

    What have you experienced.

    Waaaaay more people are getting it, including us.... and it isn't fatal. It isn't even killing high risk folks here. We've had 30 confirmed cases in this town that I know about and it's a three day knockdown and back to work in a week.

    finski is right about 99%
    sadly my stepson lost a friend in the 1%
    got in his lungs and he couldn’t recover
    for me it was a bad headache, body aches and lethargy
    about 5 days really bad
    maybe ask diablo… seems like he had more of the respiratory symptoms

    My nose has been running profusely for a month. I have spent a small fortune on nasal sprays, etc. All for naught.
    I assume d it to be a chronic covid effect with no viable treatment available, like no taste or smell for 10 days, which I got when the Plague first arrived.
    However, I read just last night, that a runny nose is a possible side effect of beta blockers, which I have been on since being released from hospital. So who knows ?
    The microphallus continues as always in addition...

    Honesty I'm gonna be 100 with y'all.
    To me this is just the cold.
    Maybe a little less common than the common cold but not that uncommon.
    It's always been the cold.

    They called me today to again for the I don't know how many times reschedule my CT scan that I need for the tumor to be removed.
    Everytime it's a few days before my appt they call m to cancel or reschedule over some bullshit.
    Do I need to show up at the fucking place and yell at them?
    At this point I think they just fucking with me because I won't take the vaccine.
    It's been almost two years dealing with the same.

    Really none of my business Rube, but fuck, if you need the imaging to get at this tumor, then take the vax, or whatever they want or require. Fuck it.
    Doesn't matter if it was a cold all along or not. Don't cut your nose off to spite your face, mang.
    Priorities, young brother.
    Just my ancient tuppence...but I felt compelled.

    not sure how you know what version of this shit you have but for me i think it was on me for the last month or more
    my throat would get sore and i'd start to ache in the early evenings and then it would be gone but it happened every night for weeks
    then i woke up freezing and i was tired for a day but still didn't think i was sick until the 3rd day when my throat was sore and i had a heavy cough
    for 3 days it was 24/7 coughing up disease without sleep
    since that point its been basically a complete lack of appetite and life force
    i told my kid i basically felt like everything i was trying to do physically had a 100lb sack of cement on my back no exaggeration
    the last 6 days i've just been sleeping and taking a bite here and there while trying to take care of my basic functions which is all i can do
    really hard to keep basic thoughts together but the appetite is coming back
    don't think there was much respiratory beyond the cough but its just a really heavy weight
    today i went to costco for water and walking around the store was the most exercise i've had in 2 weeks but i can feel it lifting
    i used mucinex, aspirin, C, a shot of tequila and of course the good fortune of that z pack
    need to have lots of water around especially if your entire house is about to get sick
    hopefully everyone can stay warm, its annoying and not much fun but never did it feel anything life threatening

    But I got a bigger longer nose than most.
    And I've yet to take a full breath.

    [QUOTE="LAdiablo, post: 582788, member: 4"
    Glad you doing better man.
    I had never seen the big Lebowski.
    Oddly enough I've probably seen every other one of those guys movies.

    It was pretty good.
    I already forgot most of it.
    Shit I probably watched it in the 90s.
    And forgot it a millennial ago.
    That was in the early 2000s somewhere.
    Excuse me but I've been under the cherry moon since 1999 and it's all been a bit of a purple haze.

    First time I've gotten a cold in like a decade probably. Can't remember last time.
    Food is completely uninteresting.
    It's all in my head though.
    Feel like a cloud of mucus up there.
    And pressure behind my left eye.

    Honestly I had been looking forward to getting a cold or flu or covid.
    So I can say yay I had it too!
    I was talking a lot of shit last week about not getting it. Then I said watch I'm gonna get it now for sorta tempting fate.
    Haha now I'm all here trying to breathe like if I'm being slowly waterboarded.
    But compared to other things... Not so bad.
    It's a cold. Totally forgot about them.

    All the years on this board, I would say the most quoted film is definitely The Godfather...
    So, I'm reading this book, " Leave the Gun- Take the Cannoli", about the film and what it took to get it made and get it written. An incredible story within an incredible story. You learn something you didn't know on practically every page...very entertaining.
    I'm talking to you, fsudog21.
    Capeesh?

    I lost my second set of glasses so far this year by the way...

    I go through eyewear faster than Moe Green.
