Operation Thank You Continues

It's that time again - April 2nd is this Sunday and it's also the first Sunday of the month.....San Diego Protest Warrior will be hosing another Operation Thank You at Balboa Park once again.

The operation will commence starting at 11:30 am at the corner of President's Way and Park Blvd.

Join us in staking out the corners of the intersection to wave American flags and signs thanking the United States military for protecting our freedoms - especially in stark contrast to what the ladies (and spooky guys) of CodePink attempt to do in that general area.

We all look forward to seeing you there!!

Post Operation Proud Banner

I'll be posting an after-action report on yesterday's event, along with some photos as soon as I can find my &%*^$ cable to download the ^(&(^ photos from the camera.

SIDE NOTE: We'll be indulging in.....chili dawgs tonight.

Mmmmmmmmmm.....chili dogs. [\Homer Simpson]

UPDATE: Okay, okay - this time I'm really going to post photos tomorrow.

I finally found the cable and after getting some work done tomorrow morning (I'm helping my wife with some small 'chores' that she needs done for her business) I'll be putting some up with appropriate captioning.

Change of Pace?

Got a question for some of you - especially Jim: would my switching to peritoneal dialysis be a better choice than sticking with hemodialysis?

I'm seriously considering switching because of a condition known as neuropathy that is getting worse with each dialysis treatment - so bad that there are times when I purposefully request to be taken off the HD machine before I'm supposed to; most dialysis days I will end up going home and just climbing into bed because my feet are hurting so much.

So....any one got any thoughts on this? My understanding is that with PD the treatments are much easier on the body but are not as....thorough.

(Sorry to whine about this......I'm starting to really dread going to treatments....)

Chops Tool

Just got something to help me in regaining my 'chops' on my bass: a Gripmaster

With the help of a friend of mine, I picked up one with a 'medium' tension at the Guitar Center here in San Diego.

Not only is it helpful in getting back into playing bass, it's also useful for overall thearpy in getting strength back into my hands.

About Me

Who is Mikey?
Mikey playing with digital camera

Mikey is a forty-something U.S. Navy veteran that is currently taking a break from being a full-time student at UC San Diego studying electrical engineering.

He's also a husband, a father, a former Independent/Democrat and is currently dealing with dialysis and getting on the national kidney transplant list.

The words written here are his opinions and his observations on the stupid things in life. If you do not like them or do not agree with them: tough squishies. In America, you're entitled to Freedom of Speech not Freedom to Not Be Offended.

Help Mikey by not being part of the problem and instead, be part of the solution so that he doesn't have to comment on your sorry actions.
