I liked the last one. And the first one.

Hum, where were those excuses when I was in the work force.

The last one fits my family! I just talked with poor Mumsie--she's getting hit three sheets to the wind by the hospital, doctors, anesthesiologists and the like, from last July's accident.

I just feel like slapping those people. Everything they present is so confusing to Dad and Mums. I feel so badly for them.

Dad has to wear his neck brace a little longer--and he's feeling really depressed. I am worried. The doc did give some good news, though--there appears to be some healing in the neck bones. They're just waiting to schedule Dad for a cat scan so they can see if he can take that brace off.

Dad says he's going to sit it up on the back fence and use it for target practice. lol Well, I don't blame him.

Have a great day, Patty!

These are good. I especially liked #9.

Haha, good ailments! The number 7 makes perfect sense to me, why is there not a Federal Illness Holiday?

Have a great evening. Going to watch the Dog Show tonight. They always put me in a good mood.
