We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

Greetings, all. Just got in yesterday afternoon.
Again, my deepest thanks to everyone who helped out.
Life is so precious.

Nice to have you back.
Sounds like you've got a pharmacy any 1960's style hippy would be proud of.
The vending machine dispenser (only an extra $49!) is the real winner here, especially with the buttons labeled "Liquid", "Pill" and "Snort".
Naturally, I've already rewired it so all three buttons can be pressed at once. Why waste time?
Glad you returned to us Doc! OK - step one complete. RedToenail.org might be a good cancer site for you to hang out at and learn about cancer and coping.....
Well, let's just say if it was a choice between you slobs and the hot señoritas -- well, let's just say it wasn't an easy choice. :)
Glad to see you back Doc.
Wishing you a speedy recovery and all that.
Maggie's is not the same without you.
Life is so precious
...as are you, Doc. Good to see they forgot to remove that pleasant personality. if it was a choice between you slobs and the hot señoritas Do you think Tom will request a refund?
Gar of the Forsaken Northern Hinterland -
Better yet, I was thinking of trading some of you slobs for a couple of them señoritas. The guy said "10 for 1", but I'm thinking I can do better. I bet I can get him down to 7-for-1, which, obviously, is a pretty good deal.
And thanks for your participation!
Careful big guy,
I'd stick with the 10-for-1 deal. I think he may have been talking about converting those "Loonies" to pesos, n'est pas?
As feeblemind inferred Maggie's is back on an even keel. Good to have you back Skipper!
Glad everything worked out in the end (Ah well, another dumb joke from my gastroenterologist, who I'll be seeing next week for the black snake treatment. Me:" Doc, what's that shorter tube hanging in the closet there." Doctor Bob: "Well that one is for the other end, you know, through your mouth. We could use this long one I'm lubing up for you, but it tastes funny.")
Welcome back, and get the racing model walker for catching las chicas; it's called a Rolator. Even has a seat if you get tired.
Oh, you mean the manual model? Thanks, but I've gone a little more upscale than that. I'm now using the powered model. Costs more in feed, but a helluva lot less work.
Hey! I kept putting coins in the slot because I thought you were going to blog the day-by-day stuff and live-stream the action. Geesh.
And did you keep the offending parts in a jar or is a piece of you buried in Mexico?
Anyway, welcome back, amigo. Escribo en la blogga Maggie's Farm mucho ahora, si!
Jephs - No Verizon Wireless where I was, and the laptop would have melted going through the autoclave. :)
That's right, I never thought of that...PC's have all sorts of viruses. Dumb!
That's exactly what the doctor said. "Oh, no! A PC? It'll never make it through the autoclave! Too bad you don't have a Mac, like I do. They never get viruses!"
They're so 2005 down in ol' Mehico.
I didn't say a word.
Ignorance is bliss.
So that's what they mean when they say, "Follow your bliss." Another mystery solved!
Now I'm gonna' run my anti-virus and check me Mac for buggage.
Glad to hear you are operated on and on the mend.
I liked hearing about all your painkillers. Docs in the US definitely are a little slow on handing them out.
Good to see you haven't changed, my friend. Nor should you...that would concern the collective "us/we".
Now if we could make sure obama doesn't get re-elected....but I digress...
Get well ASAP...
