Pensioner's reply re Bunnings


Didn't like shopping there anyway. Yesterday I was at my local Bunnings store buying a large bag of Jimbos dog food for my loyal pet and was in the checkout queue when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog..

What did she think I had, an elephant? So, since I'm retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Jimbos Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn’t, because I ended up in hospital last time, but I'd lost 2 stone before I woke up in intensive care with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pockets with Jimbos nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in queue was now enthralled with my story.)

Horrified, she asked me if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off the kerb to sniff an Irish Setter's butt and a car hit me..

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard.


I'm now banned from Bunnings.

Better watch what you ask retired people. They have all the time in the world to think of daft things to say.

ON JULY 20, 1969, AS COMMANDER OF THE APOLLO 11 LUNAR MODULE, NEIL ARMSTRONG WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO SET FOOT ON THE MOON.





HIS FIRST WORDS AFTER STEPPING ON THE MOON, "THAT'S ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND," WERE TELEVISED TO EARTH AND HEARD BY MILLIONS.*





BUT JUST BEFORE HE RE-ENTERED THE LANDER, HE MADE THE ENIGMATIC REMARK





"GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY."




MANY PEOPLE AT NASA THOUGHT IT WAS A CASUAL REMARK CONCERNING SOME RIVAL SOVIET COSMONAUT. HOWEVER, UPON CHECKING, THERE WAS NO GORSKY IN EITHER THE RUSSIAN OR AMERICAN SPACE PROGRAMS .




OVER THE YEARS, MANY PEOPLE QUESTIONED ARMSTRONG AS TO WHAT THE - 'GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY' STATEMENT MEANT, BUT ARMSTRONG ALWAYS JUST SMILED.





ON JULY 5, 1995, IN TAMPA BAY, FLORIDA , WHILE ANSWERING QUESTIONS FOLLOWING A SPEECH, A REPORTER BROUGHT UP THE 26-YEAR-OLD QUESTION ABOUT Mr Gorsky TO ARMSTRONG.





THIS TIME HE FINALLY RESPONDED BECAUSE MR. GORSKY HAD DIED, SO NEIL ARMSTRONG FELT HE COULD NOW ANSWER THE QUESTION.





HERE IS THE ANSWER TO "WHO WAS MR GORSKY":





IN 1938, WHEN HE WAS A KID IN A SMALLMID-WESTERNTOWN , HE WAS PLAYING BASEBALL WITH A FRIEND IN THE BACKYARD. HIS FRIEND HIT THE BALL, WHICH LANDED IN HIS NEIGHBOUR'S YARD BY THEIR BEDROOM WINDOW.

HIS NEIGHBOURS WERE MR. AND MRS. GORSKY. AS HE LEANED DOWN TO PICK UP THE BALL, YOUNG ARMSTRONG HEARD MRS. GORSKY SHOUTING AT MR. GORSKY,





"SEX! YOU WANT SEX?! YOU'LL GET SEX WHEN THE KID NEXT DOOR WALKS ON THE MOON!"





NEIL ARMSTRONG'S FAMILY CONFIRMED THIS IS A TRUE STORY.

Critter, his feet look so much better!

Okay friends, I need some horsey prayers. My hubby's horse (technically he is owned by the BO, but hubby leases him and everyone at the barn considers him to be hubby's horse)

The horse is colicing right now. He was given banamine and I walked him and walked him. We put him in the trailer. We tried everything to get him to poop. Nothing. He wouldn't eat or drink anything. When we first noticed that something was wrong, he looked horrible. He wasn't rolling or anything but he had no gut sounds, had labored breathing, and just looked horrible.
We think he hasn't been drinking because the trough is in a place that is really muddy and he hates the mud.
When hubby arrived at the farm (I called him and told him he needed to come out) Scuffy perked up and even showed interest in grazing. Jeff was able to get him to drink a little and Scuffy started passing a little gas...very smelly gas.
We left him in a clean stall with lots of water. If there is no poop in the morning, the vet will come out and tube him.
I am very scared. We thought if we left him alone, that maybe nature would take its course. The BO is going to check on him periodically over night.
And then I came home and googled banimine and found horrifying information about banamine given IM. That's how he was given the meds and now I have to worry about him developing an abcess from the medication that is supposed to help him!
There will be no sleep here tonight.
Please send good vibes, thoughts, prayers for Scuffy!

It is very doubtful that the IM banamine will cause a problem. Sure it can happen, but it is not that common.
