OK seems Mike is doing good and bad. Good in that he’s alive, bad is that he’s -still- not answering the phone, nor texting. His brother Jeff called today to give me the name of a trusted folk up around yonder to get the cashola that we raised to Mike and avoid any ‘imperial entanglements’ i.e. the Tax Doodz and Medicaid Arseholes.
Seems that the biggest problem is that Mike has to be completely financially busted ass broke to make sure that he get allllll this medical ‘stuff’ taken care of, so’s we got Billy up thar to be the bagman. Many thanks for that Bro! After talking to him n’Jeff, I guess it’s literally be a bag full of cash being parceled out…
Sort of reminds me of how I paid the internet bill back in Bagdad.
Literally $10k USD in a brown paper bag, handed to a dude named Mustapha in a back alley out of the regular line of sight from most folks… Made even MOR entertaining in that I was usually a rolling death machine, All body-armored up, armed with my MP-5, 3 or 4 frags, and my Browning Hi-Power…
Good times, good times.
So, anyways, they’re getting Mikey walking/stumping and kitting him out with a peg leg, and he’s being ornery as all get out. He’s bored to death, and still pretty demoralized, so his location is here:
Now I just checked in and when I mentioned Mike by name, the on-duty nurse started giggling and said “Oh Mike!!! Oh he’s a character!” so it’s pretty clear that he’s keeping everyone on their toes around him… I’m shipping out a laptop to him either tomorrow or the day after as they have wireless there and he’ll be forced to get back in Ye Olde Bloggsaddle ‘cos I know y’all are tired of my sorry ass, that and he’s bored to death what with only the TV to keep him entertained.
So, show him some love and make sure you put HIS name on any mail going there, and the staff’ll make sure he gets it.
Good news… ’bout damned time Aye?
Thanks for the update.
Keep up the Orneriness Mike. The world needs more ornery.
Update much appreciated. Ornery is good.
Thirding the thanks for the update. Best of luck to Mike — being stuck with just the wasteland that is TV for entertainment is dire indeed.
Add me to the “Ornery is good” club.
A bit of inspiration, perhaps – this guy lost both legs, one above and one below the knee – and learned to fly again. Spitfires. Battle of Britain… https://www.history.co.uk/articles/douglas-bader-the-double-amputee-flying-ace-of-the-battle-of-britain
While we’re waiting on SteveF to give us a new and better and improved “Daily Donnybrook”, hint 🙂
For those that are not aware of the 4th branch of the federal gov and who the enemy list is pointed at:
Hope the rehab is going well for Mike.
A good start, VDH and the Ten Commandments:
