As some of you may know, I live in Pike Co, Ky, and my area was hit hard over the weekend by flooding.
You may have seen it on the local tv stations if you live in this area, or if you dont, you may have seen it on Cnn or Fox and I think the early tv news might have shown some of it, literally hundreds, possibly thousands of ppl lost everything, their homes, their cars, their shoes off of their feet, they cant get inside the homes, which alot were mobile homes washed off of their foundations and flipped over...
At least 2 deaths have been reported so far, and several people are reported missing.
It has been declared a disaster area by the governor and hopefully, by the President soon, so we can begin to get some federal aid.
I was spared, the area of the county where I live was pretty well untouched, save for a few rock slides and muddy yards.
But, less than 10 miles from me, people lost thier homes, cars flipped upside down and washed away into creeks.
You can find this story on www.wymt.com....just look for the links to flooding in Pike Co, Ky.
please keep these families in your thoughts today and if you are a charitable person and are looking to help someone, you might go to tides of hope website, I was told they had set up a fund to help the people of this area.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.

ok, so its been 12 days since my surgery and i go back to the surgeon tomorrow for a follow up, and i have a few words for him...when is my leg going to feel better dude?!?!....i have been in pain today, my mom says its because its been wet and rainy today and i was sitting outside early today while it rained.
but i had to take pain meds today, twice, i had been cutting way back on them, and when i go back to the doc tomorrow i am going to ask about physical therapy and i just hope it doesnt hurt when they start it cuz i might kick like a mule with my good leg...
i have a question, does anyone in here use internet coupons? and if so, at walmart???
i tried using a coupon there the other day and the guy didnt even look at it to see the amount or where it came from, he just said, we dont take internet coupons, and didnt listen to me when i asked why, just shrugged.
so, does anyone use them and if so, where??? and should i try again at walmart with a different cashier or even a manager???

well i had to reschedule my docs appt i had for tomorrow, i guess i didnt have to but i did.
for one, i cannot drive yet, and i am still having trouble getting up and down my steps, the knee pops and cracks and sometimes it hurts like a cowbite...do cows bite, well if they do i bet it hurts.
anyway, so i call thinking they will get me in 2 or 3 weeks, i find out my doc is leaving next week and wont be back until sept and they cant get me in til sept 9th....now this is a mixed blessing.
on the one hand, it might set me back on his schedule, but, it will give me time to get back on the track i was one before my injury sidelined me.
i still cant walk for exercise and sometimes, i even have trouble walking period.
but i have 8 weeks and no more excuses....if i were on 2 good feet and could walk and really get a good burning exercise going, i might be able to do 15 to 20 lbs in 8 weeks, and if i could do 10 to 14 i would even be thrilled.
but this gives me the chance to do 8 at least.
but i am going for 16...heck if i cant lose 2lbs a week, then what am i doing here?
even with the injury i should be able to do that, and the first thing, is good bye yet again to coca cola...that drug is my addiction, but tomorrow hes gone.
i might be setting my self up for failure, was it babe ruth who used to point to the bleachers before he hit the ball to indicate where it was going?
i am pointing to 16 lbs, i just hope im as good as the babe!!!!
