1 Tales from Bob on 9/12/2016, 9:06 pm

I just returned home after spending a couple of entertaining hours with Bob! Lest any of you think he may have suffered any mental decline from the surgery, I am happy to report that our visit was just as interesting as always, despite taking place in a hospital room. He looks remarkably well and we had a great time catching up. He did ask me to see if there are any techies reading who may have an answer for his problems getting on the forum. He and I have the exact same problem trying to access it from our phones, which is that normally after just a few seconds, pop ups take over and render it useless. He also has an Apple tablet, but once he tries to type, the screen turns white and everything disappears. If anyone has any answers, he could be back in the posting business as usual.

He also told a very funny story of a yankee patient who apparently thinks people with southern accents are inferior. Now I may have a couple of details wrong, but basically while he was in pre op all day, there was a couple on the other side of the curtain who did not care for the doctor's southern accent and was very disparaging about it, even voicing their disdain to the surgeon! This went on for quite some time, and finally, the man wound up loudly calling for the "southern belle doctor from Alabama." Well, Bob, who was not in the greatest humor anyways, proceeded to go on a rant and tell him off from his side of the curtain. The doctor, who of course could not say anything himself, actually laughed quite loudly! Interestly, the surgery had to be cancelled because the patient had not quit using a certain medication 6 days in advance as he was instructed to do. But Bob said that the best part was that when the couple had to walk past him to exit the room, they turned their heads to the wall and wouldn't make eye contact with him. Guess that shut the yankee supremacists up Razz

And, finally, because you just can't make this stuff up, Bob has been visiting with....his BLACK friend. I didn't think that was allowed for a Southern racist like ole Bob.

Glad you a good time. I didn't hear that story that is funny. He does look good and is pretty sharp.

I just came on here and just finished telling my wife the experience of parking in the Bayou parking garage and asking 3 different people how to get to the tower's and how long it took me. Then on the way out some guy older than me looking around on the first floor trying to find something and I said you're lost right? He said yes and I said good luck. Next time valet parking.

Can't Bob put adblock on his ipad? He has it on his computer at home. I had put it on this computer and had to take it off to complete some certification's and never put it back on but have no trouble now.

I don't know, but it would def be worth a try. Both my phone and tablet get spammed every time I try to access the forum. Neither of us has any issues with any other site on the phone or tablet. When my 20 year old comes home from college next time, I can ask him, but am hoping for an answe sooner that that for Bob.

Thanks so much,  Lisa. You really gave me a lift today.  And same goes to ppaca and hallmark.  You are all very special folks in the time of this old geezer's need.
And also thanks, Lisa, for retelling that incident in the pre-op.  The only thing you left out is the best observation which was made by YOURSELF which I overlooked.  Which of course is how intelligent that non-southerner was to mock and insult the surgeon who was about to operate on him.  Which is as you said,  about the ultimate in stupid. roflmao

I'll be damned. I got that much typed without the white screen of death happening once.  The forumotion geniuses must give us a break on the white screen at night.

Thanks, Hallmark. Looks now like I MAY be discharged today and go to rehab at WF Hospital. With emphasis on MAY. As you know, hospitals work on different schedules than everything else in society. Hours can equal days or weeks. Makes "musicians time" look like an atomic clock time in comparison. lol

Thanks, knothead. You're a good soul. And so is everyone else here. Steve Jackoff Jobs' white screen wiped this message twice before I got this typed so I'll stop here.

Damn that sorry son of a bitch Jobs to hell.  And the geeky nerdy horse he rode in on too.
Exterminate all Apple employees. Intern them all in concentration camps and gas them. Rid the world of them.
Two more white screens to finish this one.
