Sold and Sold

   Well  I sold the Blountsville property and my BOL. Both went to folks that have more use for them than I will in the near future.

    Our granddaughter bought my bug out property to put her camper on . Whether or not she will move and live there remains to be seen. I hope they will . She is getting married on the 25 th of this month. They are talking about how they are going to fix the property up . They pay 700$ a month in apartment rent which to me is unbelievable . The way I see it with the camper and the 10 x 20 shed properly placed and porched  so both are usable they could be living for basically free. There would be plenty of room to build a nice cabin as they could with the money saved. I cant  say if they will or wont but I can hope.

     On the 25th I will be catering the granddaughters wedding .
Its going to be a casual event at the lake . I doubt there will be a suit attending . Knowing both sides of their family's there will be a lot of drinking and country music. And yes it will be BBQ  Butts Ribs and chicken  baked beans, coleslaw and tater salad.

It all taste like cardboard !!!!

      Ok a quick update on my treatment. I have had 2 chemo and 8 radiation treatments so far. I have lost 4 pounds since the 20th .
     The first week got bad on day 5 (Friday) while I was up selling BBQ . I was hit with nausea and dizziness felt like I was going to pass out. I started the anti nausea med that night and was fine but tired Saturday doing the BBQ. Doing much better now that I scheduled when I take my meds. I learned their is no HE Manning through this.

      Lost my ability to taste Monday after chemo and radiation. Everything taste like I am chewing paper or cardboard. It doesn't matter what it is it all taste the same. I can smell the flavors but once in my mouth its cardboard. The nurse says I will regain taste once the radiation is over. Even coffee taste like crap .

President John Tyler's Grandsons Are Still Alive

Here's the most amazing thing you'll ever read about our 10th president:
John Tyler was born in 1790. He took office in 1841, after William Henry Harrison died. And he has two living grandchildren.
Not great-great-great-grandchildren. Their dad was Tyler’s son.

How is this possible?

The Tyler men have a habit of having kids very late in life. Lyon Gardiner Tyler, one of President Tyler’s 15 kids, was born in 1853. He fathered Lyon Gardiner Tyler Jr. in 1924, and Harrison Ruffin Tyler in 1928.
We placed a somewhat awkward call to the Charles City County History Center in Virginia to check in on the Tylers.
After we shared this fact on Twitter in 2012, Dan Amira interviewed Harrison Tyler for New York Magazine. Lyon Tyler spoke to the Daughters of the American Revolution a while back. Snopes is also in on the fact.

  If my math is right John Tyler had  Lyon at 63 !!!!
Lyon had his sons at 71 & 75 !!!!!

Sell contract came in. Lettin thing go.

       Well the property I had bought in Blountsville last year is now under contract. The family that lives next door wants it just so they can tear it down. Its to close for  Nabors for their taste. When they contacted me I had just found out I was sick so I threw out twice what I have in it and they took it. Now  a 1500$ profit isn't huge but the timing is good for me. I know I wont  be in any shape to do any thing with it for a while, and 3000$ back in the bank suits me. The close date is to be now till April 15 th. depending on their attorney drawing up the paperwork.
       With my son getting his place the need to use Blountsville as a food commissary is not an issue. He has plenty of room to build what we need and most the material to.

         I still am thinking on my BOL property. My wifes granddaughter  has looked at it and liked it she has that camper I helped her get last year. At this point in my life if she wants it I will let it go. I can always cache some supplies on the property even if I sell it to her.

     Next to go will be my old ranger . I have had it 8 years and the book value is 400$ more than I gave for it.

I Start Monday.

     Today I finally met my oncologist ! He seems like a competent doctor and answered my question without dancing around. He has a quiet kind voice suited to the bad news he has to give to some people. I was asked about my ability to eat, pain level, and if I was willing to get a port for chemo.

    At this point I had to stop him and describe myself to him . I made it clear I am a Man I wanted him to treat my cancer aggressively  I don't whine but if I was hurting I would let them know. There would be no feeding tube unless I was below 180 lb. and agreed. As for a port everyone I had talked to said it was better than an arm IV so schedule it. I also made it clear I was a straight talker and wanted him to return the favor  NO CANDY COATING and ALL OPTIONS ON TABLE. He said few patient fit what I described and asked for. Seems he has a lot of patient he has to coddle and baby.

    I start my chemo on Monday morning then I have radiation that afternoon. It looks like I will get 42 doses of radiation and 13 chemo treatments . One day next week I will also get the chemo port in my chest. I will be dealing with these treatments till at least May 15 th.
