  1. When Grandma goes to court Lawyers should never ask a Mississippi grandma a question if they aren't prepared for the answer. In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know me?' She responded, 'Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you'll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.' The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?' She again replied, 'Why yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.' The defense attorney nearly died. The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said, 'If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I'll send you both to the electric chair.' Have a great week everyone!
  2. I had a couple, hardly felt them. Maybe they used square needles on you?
  3. You know, I'm jealous! I have a cast iron stomach, I don't dump on much, but some ham kills me! The last ham I was able to eat without dumping was a boiled ham- probably because the sugar and fat had been boiled off! (Mom's cooking rocks! You're never too old for one of Mom's Sunday dinners!)
  4. That is too darn funny- I just sent it to a half-dozen friends! Thanks for the chuckle!
  5. Vim, I'm so sorry for your loss!
  6. First time I tried eggs, they got stuck, and up they came! Now they are one of the basics I go back to if I am having a pissy pouch day, I can always count on soft scrambled eggs or cottage cheese. Oh- and try the SF ketchup, it's not bad at all!
  7. We've been together for almost 13 years, been married for 9 months. My husband is my best friend and my biggest supporter and has always just wanted my happiness and health! I want to live forever, so I can spend it with him. GBS has given us more time together. You'll be fine as long as you have a good relationship. Oh- and did I mention my man is a saint? Anyone who can put up with me post-RNY, going through "the change", and planning a wedding...
  8. As everyone one has said, it's a tool, and like most projects of any kind, it takes more than one tool. I'm down just over 100 lbs. I've been hanging at this point for several months. Reasons? Stopped the regular exercise- sooooo easy to do when your gym 3 minutes away closes unexpectedly! Also, started drinking again- empty calories and other pitfalls, that's a work in progress. Carbs are the Evil Empire! They have been sneaking back into my diet. I want as balanced a diet as possible (for a GBS patient), but I need to get carbs back to the basics. Whole grain, high fiber, limit quantities, that's the ticket. I'm not a poster child for this, but I'm darned if I consider myself a failure-yet! So, I think of it as three tools working in conjunction: Pouch, brain, and exercise.
  9. Elaine, can you hear me on the sidelines rooting for you? "cuz I am! You are one, strong woman, and you will get through this; my Irish mysticism tells me so. Go for it!!!
  10. Trina, the sensitive teeth toothpastes, like Sensodyne, have a cumulative effect. If you use it every day for a few weeks you should see an improvement. I've been using it since college. Went on a European trip once for 10 days w/o it, and by the end of the trip I was really missing it! I have a mouthful of fillings, have had them for years. I've had a couple extractions and a couple root canals in the past, but I have not noticed any decline in the last year. Unfortunately, ladies and gents, it may just be age! But a dentist who tells you your teeth will fall out? What a load of horse manure!

    Thanks Beth! I am determined to bake with fresh cherries this year, and not just watch DH eat them like candy!

    Hmm...another winning recipe for next week's picnic basket while I'm on "staycation"! Thanks, Beth!
  13. Of course, I'm going to be on "staycation" at home next week, so these sound pretty good for a picnic basket at the shore . I'll let you know how addictive they are...
  14. Oh Izzy-Bear, sorry to hear of your trials and tribulations! Please, please take care of yourself, and I'm glad to hear you have given yourself a good talking-to! (And boy! Am I ever glad my surgeon took out my gallbladder while he was in there doing the RNY!)
  15. Thanks for the giggle! I'm definitely sending this one on...
