No proper post today.

Post 762 ~ ~ ~ Sunday, 13th November, 2011.

Hi Everyone ~~ I hope you are all feeling better than I am. This back
pain is really bad and I can't think straight, so am not doing a proper
post. my daughter, Kathy is coming to help for a few days, and has a
five hour drive to get here. That is so good of her, and for me to ask
her to come shows, how I am feeling. I will try to do a post soon.

Seeing I am here, a quick joke from my friend Warren. Thanks Mate.
It is called Husband down. with a pic of a man on the floor of shop.

On the Woolworth's intercom, Clean-up on Aisle 5, we have a husband down.

A husband and wife were shopping in their local Woolworths.
The husband picks up a case of Foster beer and puts it in their
"What do you think you are doing?" asks the wife.
"They are on Sale, only $20 for 24 cans," he replies.
"Put them back, we can't afford them," demands the wife, and so
they carry on shopping.

A few aisles further on along, the woman picks up a $40 jar of face
cream and puts it in the basket.
"What do you think you're doing?" asks the husband.
"It's my face cream. It makes me look beautiful," the wife says.
The husband retorts, "So does 24 cans of Tooheys and at half the price."

He never knew what hit him !!!

Bye for now my friends, I love you all and treasure our friendship.
Hopefully I will be back better than ever before too long..
Take great care, and don't lift any heavy boxes. Cheers, Merle.

Well dear Merle, this is not good news. What is being done medically to heal your back and rid you of this pain? Your daughter's visit should allow you to rest and that will be most helpful. Take care and thanks for taking time to post such a good joke. It is great to know you have your sense of humor still. You are in my prayers.

Oh Merle this is not good news about your back, so happy your daughter is able to come and help you out. Too late, I've already lifted the heavy box (genealogy paperwork, a file box full), lifted g'kids, lifted Baron (who I swear is now over 15 pounds) and on and on. Praying for your back to heal as soon as possible and for your pain to diminish ASAP!

Good joke...don't mess with the wife!

Love and gentle hugs, Theanne

Dearest Merle, I'm so sorry to hear that your back is giving you so much pain, I'm glad that your daughter will soon be with you to help you out. You must rest and let your back heal!! Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you.

That joke is so funny, poor husbands certainly can put their foot in their mouths quite often! lol

Much love and hugs go out to you, dear friend. xoxo

Sweet Merle, I'm sorry to hear about your injured back, and the pain that you are having! My son, Bo, has been dealing with bad back pain since he ruptured a disc in September. I pray you will get some relief soon.

It's good to know that your daughter will be coming to help you. Please take it easy, and keep us posted on how you are doing.

Dear Merle, I am sorry to hear that you are so unwell. Bad Backs can be terrible problems, hope you have seen a doctor and have some good pain medication. Take care, dear friend, and recouperate quickly. Love and hugs, Connie xx

Gigi Ann said...

I hope you are feeling better each day, and will soon be up and around again. Hoping you have a speedy recovery.

Jim said...

Oh Merle, I hope that back of yours gets better more quickly! You were having troubles last Sunday too.

Is a second opinion in order? I had never heard of a sprained back. You might have hurt a disc or the likes.

Are you on pain meds? I am still on Vicodin. It has been almost four months now and for sure I am hooked. Don't you get that way but the relief may be worth it.

But with backs, they can be fixed. Are you using hot packs or the heating pad? Cold packs? Google can help you find which is best.
Forgot to mention that nice story about a not nice man. I guess he was still peeved because he had to put his beer back.

Sue said...

Merle I will say a prayer for your back. I have a GREAT BIG GOD to listen to my requests. I pray you feel better soon.
Love you Sue

Big Dave T said...

Sorry to hear about your back. My brother had problems with his back for a while and needed to have nerve block injections to make him feel better. Hope your's just gets better on its own.

Gina E. said...

Oh dear Merle, if it isn't one thing, it's another! You really are a naughty girl as someone posted should know better than to try and lift heavy or awkward objects. Well, it's no use telling you off now - lol! Everyone else here has stated the obvious - get your doc. to organise some pain relief for you. In the meantime, REST! Glad to know your Kathy is coming to look after you; she is such a good daughter to you. Please tell her I said that!

Dave said...

Very sorry to hear you're not feeling well Merle, I hope your back gets better real soon.

Great joke though... *Smile*

Back pain is the pits, you are unable to move right and everything hurts, sorry to hear it is still hurting. At least your humor is still with you. Hope you get some relief soon. Have a nice Thanksgiving.

Mountain Mama said...

I'm so sorry about your back pain. It sure is sweet of your daughter to come help you. I hope you can get some relief. Maybe you will have to see your doctor. I pray you are better soon. Love, hugs & prayer's my friend.
Odd but my verification word is 'paing'

Joy Des Jardins said...

Oh Merle...I'm so sorry your are having back pain. I hope it's better by now and that you are able to get around better. I know just how you feel back has ached for quite a while now; and I haven't really gone to the doctor about it. I'm using heat and pain medicine to subside it as much as possible. I've thought about going to a chiropractor to see if I need some alignment, but I haven't done it yet. These back problems make things very's hard to stay focused when you're uncomfortable. Good luck Merle...feel better very soon dear friend. Love, Joy
