Good luck!

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Oh Kelly!! How on Earth did I miss this thread??!?! Best of luck to you, but you don't need that - you'll do just fine, and be better for it. Go get that screw screwed back in so you can ride with me soon!!

Please call me if I can do anything for you :)

you know... I have a screw driver here at the house... we could save you some money.... I'm assuming we are just talking about a pelvis screw right? Maybe something to do w/ a hip? I can't possibly "screw" it up any worse then it already is... and I'll just charge you.. $5000!

Teehee... a friend of mine got a screw removed from her ankle (her horse jumped on her and shattered her leg) anyway, that's what the bill was.... 5k for a less than five minute procedure! AMAZING!

PS - did you ever go to disneycruise.com and check out that pirate cruise sailing they are having? They have cast from the movie on it....

Hmmmmmmmmmm

Considering the carrots in your "care" that get withered and shriveled from being "bronzed" I would be very worried if I saw you coming at me with a big screwdriver in your hand !!!!!

Funny thing is, with the last surgery I had done on my upper limb, they ended up trying 7 different screw drivers to remove the hardware I had there. As it turned out to be, they broke 4 of them and the last they ended up using was a "home depot" looking one. Go figure

yes, me and Farmpony could do it. I would not charge anything
For my services, but you have to know going in that we don't have
X-ray equipment. So we would have to use the ol trial and error
Method of drilling holes with my cordless drill until we found the
Loose screw, We use wd-40 for lubricant as to cut down on the friction
Doing the drilling process. Once the trouble-some loose screw is
Found we could take it out or put locktite on it to help keep it tight
So the loose screw would stay put.

(notice, if the so called Loose Screw is frozen in place and will not
Move, use of more agressive tools might have to be used. Heating
The Loose Screw to not quite red hot usually will free up any Loose
Screws and this provides a secondary benefit as it will stop any
Unneccessary bleeding from the operating sight of said Loose Screw.
Also we will use Jack daniels as a antiseptic pouring into the site of
The operation. We also will use the Jack Daniels to help with calming
Of the nerves. We both will be drinking double shots to help any shaking
Of our hands so that will give you a calming effect so you will not worry
As to thinking we know what we are doing.)

I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within. Douglas MacArthur
