I think I know what caused the thumb infection. You giving everyone a "Thumbs Up!" Its called over-worked thumbitis. Maybe limit yourself to 20 "thumbs up" a day instead of 50-100. Get better soon big man!
And I have to stop sucking my thumb!! haha

Tell me about it. Dunno why I get all these weird and offbeat medical issues. Are you kidding me i have to say to myself.

I had a 1998 ford mustang for years, that I sold about a year ago . I regret selling it. I shouldn't have. Anyway, that thing was in great shape. Those Ford Mustangs age very very well if you give them some love.
Nice dog bonus pic.
I'm 75% today Big J! Its been a long time since my last show and I loved it just like in the old days! I agree, there was a 1993 Mustang there with almost 300,000 KM's on it! Still looked good and ran really well.

That's a dog??? I've always had big dogs w/ choc. labs my fav. I am dogless now. My last one was hit/killed about 1.5 years ago and I don't think I can replace her.

BTW...nice lifting too.
Thanks Storm!! Thumb is under control thankfully. You never realizie how much you need a thumb until you have no use of it. For example, I could not grip anything with the hand. Sorry to hear about your loss. Indeed, we have such a big emotional love and connection with our dogs. Its tough to lose one. Indeed, never replaceable but its good therapy to move on and love another dog.

Got to love a clean fox body!
The Docs did not think it was a bite, but I guess you never know. I don't think any toxic spiders live here tho. It is a bit frustrating not knowing since it would be nice to know to prevent it from re-occurring.

Definitely very very few clean fox body's around. Most of them were crushed as people drove the shit out of them.

Get to feeling better, man. When do you get back on the Back Bitch?
Hit - your thoughts and words mean alot to me and in turn inspires me. I really do think about all of you when I lift. Today I was thinking about Big swede when I rowed as he is always preaching heavy ass rows!

Not sure if I will be finishing up the back bitch sessions. I only had 2 left to do, but if I go back I imagine that would reset somewhat. It is also very intense and I have to think about it.

BENCH SESSION

Firstly, thanks for all the replies. You guys sure know how to cheer me up and get my head in the right place.

Speaking of heads, today was a very emotional one for me. The Pull Ups made me lose it. I have been feeling really guilty of late that I have recovered from all my issues this past winter. Many people I love and care deeply about have not been so fortunate. Besides the members here that I care for that are going thru difficulty, Mrs Squatter has been having alot of issues with her shoulders. Her recovery from surgery is not going so well and now her "good" shoulder is developing problems. She has been thru so much (2 foot surgeries and 2 hysterectomy's). Although I of course help her I always feel it is not enough. Add to that my brother and I toured a flood ravaged area that we used to frequent as kids. It really broke our hearts to see the area obliterated. Perhaps we shouldn't have had a look.

I seem to be also having alot of anxiety issues about everything. Even the nurses at the hospital noticed it. Lifting tho is very therapeutic and it seemed to help today. I gave it all I got. I of course feel blessed that I am able to do it at all. I know squat-o-clock on Thursday will fix my head up. I guess I just need to figure out why I feel this way.

I did receive a nice compliment from a starnger today tho. Stopped to get gas on my way home and the attendant asked about my squatter tattoo. He asked how it came about. I told him it's my true love of squatting. He said I looked like I squat alot. I told him 2X per week but I wish it was 7.

I will try to catch up on all your journals as much as I can this week.

Very, very clean Mustang! Congrats!

Great lifts as well Jim. Reading your journal inspires me.

And I hope everything goes well for your wife and family.

Those flooded areas, very sad. My hometown has changed a lot also. Oh well, find the positives in life.

Thanks Ben!! It is a true love affair with the stang. We will find a way to get Mrs Squatter back up and running! Indeed, something positive will come out of it. The Governemnt has been great in helping out financially and emotionally believe it or not. Even the Stampede is going ahead.
