Good Morning Campers,
So, you may be asking yourself, why is it that Impish is Jumping For Joy? Well…not for any real good reason. You could call it a sarcastic jump. That would be fitting. Got back from the surgeon’s office this morning (Thursday) and it was just like I said, the first words out of his mouth were, “So we are going to try and schedule your surgery for before the end of the year to get the insurance to pay for as much of this as possible.” Gotta love that man. So, there was no question even that I need a hip replacement. When I mentioned my shoulder pain, he asked me which was bothering me more, I said the hip was probably more important since I stand on it most of the time and he agreed. He moved my shoulder around a little bit and when I squeaked in pain he said, “Rotator cuff. Want a shot?” I said, “When?” He said, “Right now.” I said, “Hell yes!” So, I did come home with a little bit of relief today.
Anyway, the last time I had the right hip done, I was off for two weeks, and then on telework from home for four more weeks. That wouldn’t break my heart at all right now. So … we’ll see what happens. The only truly bad part is the expense. Not sure how I’m going to pay for it, but I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. They’ll have to set up a payment plan for us or something, right?
Merry Christmas! LOL! Oh well, if it wasn’t this, it would be something else. Let’s move on to the fun stuff, and not worry about tomorrow. It will certainly come soon enough and take care of itself.
This is going to end very, very badly for someone.
I used to just crastinate, but I got so good, I went pro.
Someone said my clothes were gay.
I said, “Yeah, they came out of the closet this morning.”

I went line dancing last night.
Well, it was a roadside sobriety test…same thing.
Dammit! They spotted another one of us!

“Come. Sit. Let us talk.”
I recently heard about this young adult novel in which Schrodinger’s cat and Pavlov’s dog team up for a cross country adventure…
So, I headed on down to the library to see if they had a copy for my ten year old daughter.
The librarian said that my description rang a bell but she wasn’t sure if it was there or not.
Don’t call me lazy until you’ve walked a couple of steps in my slippers.
Always love a woman for her personality.

You know a girl is mad when she starts a sentence saying, “I just find it funny how…”
Because there’s a 99.9% chance she did not find it funny.
I really love these garage doors!!
I may not have a hot body, but I have a hot bucket of fried chicken, so who’s the real winner here?
And some more garage doors, just because they are so neat.
Lie all you want on social media, lie to your family and friends, but that mirror in the bathroom is cold blooded.
It’s actually the voices outside my head that bother me the most!
You are going to get a few more of these than normal today, both because there is so much to say and because you guys have given me SO MANY political memes that my space for them is about full and I need to make room for more. So, what do you say we be politically incorrect for a little while, shall we?
No shit. Come and try and take them.
And boy do we miss those prices now.
And when it’s anthem is played, you stand respectfully, with your hand over your heart or (if you are allowed) render a salute. You DO NOT kneel.
And I don’t understand why the American people don’t see that?
Can we please sing that one a little louder! Everyone of you elected people, you work for us! You are our employees! You are the hired help!
Yes you do! Please, Mr. and Mrs. America and all the little Americans out there: Please, please, please get it through your heads. These elected people are nothing special. They are only in charge because we put them in charge. They are supposed to act in OUR interests. As soon as they stop acting in our interests we are supposed to get rid of them and put someone else in their place who WILL act in our interest. That’s the democratic process. Would you take this crap from the kid who mowed your lawn? Would you let that drunken Nancy Pelosi babysit your kids? Would you trust Biden to protect your house at night? Then why are we trusting them with our most important asset?
My doc said I would need hip surgery next year, I told them to forget it. I live alone, am 88 years old and have not intention of going to a convalesent home, that would be like jail to me and also my dog would not like it.
You are one lucky fella to get a surgery done so fast . . . . believe me, the docs here are booked out to Feb & Mar of 2022.
But then, Utah is one of the 5 states with the highest covid numbers, so maybe it’s not like that in other states.
Another benefit of getting it done before the end of the year, means you can claim the expenses on your taxes, get your money back faster.
Of course, to do that you need to have paid for it in 2021 . . . so, I think we need to start a pay it forward account, which I don’t know how to do, so is there anyone out there who can?
Or maybe, start a pay per laff tax?
