THE ANGER OF THE CHRONIC VICTIM

Image
A group of us online have been the focus of a rather unbalanced person this last year. This person has turned on a lot of their friends and pushed them away with outright abuse. The worst part of it, this person also sees them self as the one who is the victim. The reality of course is plain to see that her anger and aggressive nature has caused people to turn from her.
For most people (balanced people) when someone chooses to walk out of your life they are gone and you might think of them now and then but there is no obsession over them. For people like the one I'm talking about however, they can't get it go. They need to play the victim and that means attacking the person over and over again in hopes they will say something back in reaction so they can say to themselves, "look they are hurting me, I'm justified in all this needless anger".
Reality never sets in that they caused the split in the first place as they need to be a victim. They also need to keep addin…

CHICO THE WONDER DOG

Image
This is Chico. He was my dog for the most part. He would want to be picked up as soon as I got home and held for a while. He was a suck to say the least LOL.
I would take him for a walk and knew his turn around point. The thing is, he would demand that we keep going instead of turning around. This would end up with him eventually wanting to be picked up and carried home.
There was a dog next door to us there named Tiko. They would run up and down the fence line then stop and touch noses and wag their tails at each other. Now and then Tiko would end up at our place for a couple days as the owners went away. This was heaven for both the dogs.
He loved the car. It did not have to be my car, any car would do LOL. Thus you had to watch him as he would go with anyone who offered.
He had back issues in his older days and would step down a step on the deck and stretch his back and it would pop all the way down. Mom hated that sound, but it made him feel better in the mornings.
In the end he ended …

HURT TOE DAY 3

Image
It's looking a lot better today and not nearly as painful, but a bit of an ouch if I move it too much. I'm rather glad it was just dislocated and not broken as that always ends in pain for weeks on end. The swelling has gone down as well.
Them feet need some attending too though. Maybe in January when there is extra money from the GST rebate I'll have them done. I don't even have a clue how much money it is to have someone clean them up.

SUMMER TRIPS TO THE MOUNTAINS

Image
I don't seem to have any photos of us in Fernie at all, so here is one in the crows nest pass.
We would spend every other summer for a long time in Fernie B.C. staying in a crowded trailer with family. They had a lot of kids you see and it was rather fun to be with a large group.
There was one time I remember when we had some fireworks. My brother shot one off from a rock and it fell over before it went off. It flew straight for the road and just as it blew up over the road a RCMP car came around the bend. The dang thing went off right in front of the car. Well they hit the breaks and we took off into the bush.
We never did get caught thank God and even though it was hard for me to keep a secret when I was that age, I never did tell Mom and Dad. I don't know if they found out but nothing was said. After all there was a hoard of other kids with us that may of spilled it to their parents.
There was for most of the time we went there a mountain with smoke coming out of it in several …

SPIDERS, RED ANTS AND A FARM

Image
So I see this big spider sitting there on the heating rad. I go get some paper to kill it with and toss it in the toilet and when I get back the spider is gone. Sigh.
See I really dislike spiders. I'm not to the point where just seeing one makes me lose it, but now that I know it's in here and I can't find it I'm nervous. I will however lose my mind if one gets on me or I wake up and see one on the ceiling over top of me.
I can trace it back to a moment when I was a very young boy (maybe 5 or 6) and I saw this white thing on a leaf. So I scratched it open with my finder and all the sudden my tinny hand was covered in baby spiders. Well, I lost it and was literally running in a circle screaming. The fact all the spiders where off me by this point was not helping me, I had lost control of my senses.
This was at a farm near Yourkton Saskatchewan, then owned by my Uncle and Aunt. The same next day in my short pants I decided to kick that big pile of dirt sitting by the tree l…

GOVERNMENT WANTS US TO PLAN AHEAD BEFORE GOING TO THE ER

Image
Ended up in the ER about midnight. My eyes where burning like crazy and there was this pin pick sensation in the eyes as well. So I got a ride in.
Well took not that long to get in and out, about an hour. This is good for our ER as normally I'm in there for many hours.
In any event, turns out it's a delayed reaction to something I encountered. That means that I'll never know what caused it. But today it's not as bad and I don't think I'll bother getting the drops he prescribed. They are almost certain to NOT be covered as well, so I'll save the money for my friends big night out instead.
Here is the ticket. A lot of poor people rely on the ability to get a free cab ride home from the hospital. We don't tend to have a lot of money to spend on a $15 or $20 cab ride. You see the hospital instead of being in the center of town is way out on the edge of the city. So it's a long ride back in.
I got a ride in from a friend who would not be able to give me a ri…
