September 25, 2008
I would like to thank you for stopping by to see what is going on in my life today. I hope you had a great day today.

It was another stay at home and in bed day for me. I had major dental work done two days ago and my mouth is still killing me. I was starting to get worn down from doing several events lately so it has been helpful to stay home and sleep for a couple of days. I will not be able to do that tomorrow due to an event I have scheduled. So besides sleeping I have been spending time with my pets and catching up on correspondence while watching coverage of the $700 billion dollar bailout in America. Now I have discussed that issue for the past two days and I am over it. I already know our politicians are going to saddle us with this debt so they can protect the rich. Now remember the people who made money on these "toxic debts" are not having to pay any of those ill gotten gains back. So once again the middle class is saving the rich. Please tell me we are not practicing socialism now. What has happened to this country? Where were our leaders and regulators? And why shouldn't they all be thrown in jail?

But I digress, it just makes me so angry because I also know the effect it will have on public funding. Mark my words.

I missed Dancing With the Stars last night. My mouth was killing me so I ended up in bed very early. I heard today that Ted McKinley was voted off last evening. It has been several years since he has been on television so that probably did not help him with getting votes. After spending a couple of hours with Gary, I had to go to bed. He got home this evening around 6pm since he decided to walk home from work. It is only about three miles so it is good exercise for him. Not like either of us is getting any younger you know. I am looking forward to working out again after my doctor gives me the okay. I am hoping he will this next month.

I have not been able to eat hardly anything solid in the past three days so I have been starving. I am still doing my two protein shakes every day but it is not the same as eating a nice plate of food especially if you have a craving for something. But the thought of having to chew right now is not something I want to think about doing. It hurts just sitting here. ARRGH!

Gary ended up making some cheese ravioli with red sauce which I was luckily able to do a fair job eating. My mouth is sore as hell now but it sure tasted excellent. We also went for our walk after dinner tonight. The temperatures have been a little cooler at night for the past few days so it makes for great walking weather. Unfortunately, it looks like we will be warming up again starting this coming Sunday. But fall is not too much further away.

We ended up watching the series premier of Ugly Betty this evening. I think Ugly Betty is one of the few well written shows on television right now. It has a fresh, unique concept which has played well with the audience. Most of the other shows will also be showing their season premier soon like Brothers and Sisters, Desperate Housewives and many others.

Well I am headed off to bed now. Starting to fall asleep as I am typing this. I hope you have a great tomorrow.

Wishing you health, hope and happiness.

Big bear hug,

Daddy Dab
