Good Mothers Day Morning.

Yesterday in my town they arrested a bunch of Jibonies stealing catalytic converters from under cars.
(they steal these things because they are filled with platinum coated pellets)

They jack up a car and using a gas saw (a very loud gas saw) they cut the thing out.

But these geniuses were stealing these from a parking lot of a security company. The side of the car was printed in large letters "SECURITY".

So of course they caught them because the place had alarms and really clear cameras all over the place. :oops:

Good Morning. I had shoulder surgery in February which went great but recently I have been getting there terrible pains in my arm near the surgery. Of course the surgeon said it's not his surgery so he sent me to a pain management doctor.

She stuck a needle in my arm about 13 times and each time she wiggled it around.
As she was doing this, I also was wriggling around.

I asked what are you injecting?

She said, "Nothing", I am just breaking up "trigger points" with the needle. :rolleyes:

What do i know? Sounds logical.

So now that terrible pain is really horrendous and I have a black and blue there as big as a manta ray.
(a juvenile manta ray)

I went for an MRI last night. :cool:

Well I think this will be a test of my theory and my tank. My good "friend" Andy is getting out of the hobby and he just came over with a bucket of fish and corals. He told me he had a "small" blue angelfish that I had to take with the corals because he didn't know what to do with it.

I opened the bag and found this.

This is a pretty sick looking tang. I am not sure what it has but it doesn't look good. I, of course threw it into my tank and it immediately started eating.

He also gave me this angelfish which while beautiful is way to big for my tank. Both fish are way to big for my tank but what am I to do? He is a good friend and likes bigger fish.

This will be a test to see if my method can cure that tang. Thank you Andy. I will see what happens but these fish are really big for my tank. My copperband is half the size of them. :oops:

All the corals look good and are a welcome addition to the tank. :)

Andy the coral polyps look great and are a nice addition. Those fish are a little big but I will see how it goes. How long have you had them?
That tang looks rough, did you use it to wash your car? :unsure:
Hi Paul the angelfish is about year and half old bought him the size of a quarter. The tang is a yellow scopas tang that is about 7 years old he actually is extremely healthy but was given to me all ready beaten up . Unlike a lot of fish I was never able to grow his fins back. I forgot all about him and he was in the overflow because he isn't the best behaved fish but I could never kill a fish but if he acts up throw him in the sound. They are probably hungry since I ran out of food about 3 weeks ago and they have been eating Koi pellets

Andy, if he acts up, I am going to throw him in your bath tub, with you in it.
First you would have to come here and catch the thing as he is way to big. :oops:

As you know, I have a lot of very small, peaceful fish. You told me you had a "small" blue angelfish, this thing is like a halibut, :rolleyes:

My Grand Daughter, Greta's other Grand Mother (not my wife) wanted to buy a bathing suit because she is coming to the Caribbean with us and the family and hasn't wore a bathing suit for decades. She is kind of (and I don't know a PC word for this) so she is a "lot of Woman".

Anyway she mentioned to Greta that she wanted to buy a bathing suit but didn't know how to go about it.

Greta said to her "Don't worry Grand Ma Linda we can just find one on line".

Her Grand Mother said to her, what do we search for.

Greta said to her "Don't worry, I will just look up Fat Lady Bathing suits"

My close friend for over 50 years and Viet Nam Buddy is being awarded today. They put him on an Air Force plane and flew him to Washington DC for a ceremony.
I don't know any details because I found out through his wife but will post something when he returns.

He was a Grunt in Nam and like me was awarded two Bronze Stars but he also got a purple heart. I didn't get one because I am faster than he is. :p

I am very proud of him.
