This year I chose to upgrade to a high-powered pump BB gun with a scope on it. Yes, my father just turned 12 and I trust him enough to maintain his own weapon. This is WV so handguns can't be issued until you are 13.
Happy 12th Birthday Padre.

One more round of X-rays (Time number 5)
Waiting for some good news
Waiting can also be educational...
The spur coming up from the lower bone is what re-attached to my leg and is now hopefully connected to the bone and a healthy ACL.
This is my cheesy inspirational video.

Before going fishing I secured some line to my new-fangled-fishing-pole (AKA my guitar)
I think I was play Tangerine by Led Zepplin when this monster attacked.
It is fun watching a one armed man trying to eat really tough steak
Then we gimps got our mothers to play a little bit of horshoes with us.
Team Collins 1 - Team Shaw 0
When it was time to pass out I recalled my victory.
The next morning we had breakfast. The Dixons had a special canopied one.
These Dixons just relaxed
I then followed suite.
Well it looks like it might be another day or two until I go camping again. All-in-all a good weekend and with any luck by next weekend I will be walking on both legs.
Team Gimp 4 games ... Russel Athletic 0
Then they built a crazy bonfire that nearly set some trees on fire
I couldn't hold my camera straight and it appears that they set some people on fire.
Bob was amazed.

It is fun to look homeless, but less fun to be homeless.
And I got a haircut.

So Bob crashed in the recliner last night and I started watching a movie... I was just fading off when he started in on this speech of sorts. Apparently the Jennifer Lopez South Park Episode about "Taco Flavored Kisses" was on his mind amongst other things.

Two roads diverged in a wood,
and I-I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Then I remembered that Hector was with us so we just followed wherever he went.
Sometimes he decided that we were going the wrong way and turned around.
Bob quickly remedied that by kicking his ball over the hill.
(Notice the artsy black-and-white)
I think the B+W makes me look even more pathetic...

Here is the lineup for the concert. I am looking for a few people to go with so if you are up for it just let me know. I have a huge tent so it should be about 4 nights of camping with great music.

I am refusing to chop the beard until I can walk... or until it bugs me beyond belief (which it is doing)
This is the video of the doc giving me the news and the rest of my day
I did get a cheap membership to another gym in town to use the in-pool treadmill. Hopefully I will have it to myself like I did today (I ripped this pic off their website)
All in all a pretty good day, should be walking in 2 weeks or so (if I am lucky)

There was a special on Moosehead beer.
It wasn't as special as the one this guy had, but ours tasted pretty badSuch exciting action
Eventually it got crowded and this guy departed because I have a Doc appt in the morning so I didn't want to get trampled and find out that I can't put wait on it tomorrow. I want to walk again.
Tyler Dean muggin for the camera
There was even "a" girl there. If you look closely you can see a can of Schlitz in the picture as well... high rollin.
To start the night properly Josh decided that it was his time to show his appreciation for Michigan. (If you don't know WVU sports you just don't understand). If you want to search Google for "Coach" "WVU" "Michigan". It is a start
Looks evil because it is...
Bob and Aaron were happy as well.
This guy opted for the nicer/dryer car sleeping. I just put up the tent to show that I could do it.
