Well that's just crap. Chronic pain is the worst dog, even worse than the black dog of depression. Trust me, I've been companions to both of them. Fingers crossed for you.
They put a patch on my back to wear for the next 7 days, which is some kind of narcotic. It's not working. I've always been resistant to pharms, just the way my body is.

My son is coming over today for lunch as it's his birthday, 41 years old, wow how time flies.

Took youngest cat (Dale, 1 yr old) to the vet yesterday. He's coughing hard, not eating solids even canned solids, dehydrating. Got an antibiotic; he's slightly better today but he's going in again anyway, probably needs IV hydration and/or steroids.

For an experiment, try it on a cooling rack in the cookie sheet, with some water below. The rack lets both sides be exposed to air and the water keeps the dripings from smoking.

No guantees, but works for a duck.

I’ve found that on the rack, it doesn’t get as crispy. Fine for me, as I like my bacon squiggly... the GF, not so much. So, some goes on the rack and some on the side.

4 tacos and 4 beers?
2 tacos, 2 beers and 2 of my wife’s monstrous homemade blueberry muffins. She even made them with extra blueberries for me (that is why they are a little flat). We call them “5 mile muffins” because they probably have 5 miles of running worth of calories in each...worth it.

When taken along as car snacks for a very long trip, they're all eaten up in the first five miles.

Squared-up a few pieces of Black Walnut using a #8 jointer plane and #5-1/2 Bailey jack plane to be used in a future project.
It is amazing how good a workout that is when you haven't done it is a while.

The wood really needed help because I originally rough-cut it from three 8' sections of trunk using an 18" chainsaw about 25 years ago.
The tree had been bulldozed into a ravine by a contractor who couldn't care less about the quality wood he was prepared to let rot away. Fortunately the land owner was receptive to my offer to haul it away.

(Moving quotes over from What did you do rocket wise today?)

9°F this morning.
Started out at 14 degrees so chilly morning.
I'll say. When I read it that I thought you must ne in metricland where 14 is chilly. Isn't 14 called "cold" in Indiana.
That's -14...
I know it's not all about latitude, but I live north of anywhere in Indiana, and I say 14 is beyond chilly and into cold. -14 is Damn cold.

Damn is not a strong enough expletive to describe that kind of cold. From down here in sunny AZ, anything that freezes water could use damn.

I'm in central Indiana. I'll walk the 50 feet from my door to the mailbox and back in 32 degree weather in tshirt and shorts. At 14 degrees, it'll be jeans and a hoodie. At -14, I'll swap the hoodie for a jacket. At -40 I'll put on a hat and gloves. About a month ago I went camping and it got down to 23 overnight. Getting up to go pee was an adventure but the trip was fun.

We get -40 a few times a year. Its not exactly fun. 14 is chilly and you don't want to get wet when it's that cold but it's not like the air hurts your face.

Bought a jacket a bit heavier than a windbreaker. I'm feeling the cold more. :(
