    Greetings And Salutations My Fellow Vapers:D


    Not only am I back but Evil Uncle came back with me.


    Gonna make this real short.

    September of 2018 we discovered a slow leak under the Dishwasher. The Mrs and our two cats were sent by the insurance company to a nice Long Term Stay Hotel while they were gutting the kitchen and EVERYTHING had to be replaced. In May of 2019, all work was completed and we went home.

    Then I fell and broke my Effen Back and Two Bottom Ribs.

    At first, the docs said I would be using a walker for the rest of my life and gave me a cheap walker to use. Soon as I got home, I went online and ordered a really nice walker. I did some practicing and was able to walk with a cane. Which I now collect so I could Stagger with a Swagger.

    After a BUTLOAD of therapy, and a BUNCH of CLASS 1 NARCOTICS I have returned. to the fold.

    For those that remember me, Nice to be back with you here on The Vaping Underground:bliss:

    For our newer members who don't know me and could not give a shit, I am one of the original Members/ Moderators in this most beloved forum so...............

    Very Nice To Meet You! :cheers:

    Damn, didn't know the back story (Pun not intended) nor did I search for one (I'm only ribbing you (Ok that pun was intended))

    Glad you're back and doing better!

    I am glad to hear you are back - not about THE BACK - but, damn.. Glad to hear yer fighting-on-thru.
    Canes are useful - keep 2 around; same with walkers, (although I left both walkers in MI) - you NEVER know when yer gonna' sproing yerself.

    wtff did you do to yer damned back, man!? sheesh. (I only had a decade+ of misdiagnosed (it's all in your head) with a necrotic-arthritis hip)

    Welcome back Uncle. Glad you made it back. Such a long road you had. At least you picked up the hobby of cane collection. They are awesome. Now do what you do and go bust some balls. Lol. Just don't get too evil. Glad to have you back.

    welcome back are you by chance the same Uncle that used to wish everyone morning/night" or something along those lines many years ago on a different forum? Either way, happy to hear you are doing better and are up and rocking it. Hooray for Oxy, I live on the stuff myself these days unfortuntely. Meh, maybe someday it won't be like that :) Really happy you have made it back!

    I tripped over one of our cats, and kinda fell straight down (like I was squatting down at high speed). My tailbone hit the edge of my nightstand first and then ALL of my Vertebrae hit the front of the table in turn until it hit the back of my skull and gave me a concussion.

    Broke both bottom ribs (that was the part that really hurt). Just like ER, they had a whole mess O Docs waiting for me in the Ambulance Bay/

    After getting a ride in all the machines, the the Doc came in and told me that I had broken my back. I asked her what the medical term was and she told me that there were like 6 of them and it was just easier to say I broke my back:vino:

    And yes, I do have 2 walkers and about 9 canes!

    My wife has started to hate canes:cuss2:

    Welcome back. Sorry to hear of all the troubles you've been dealt, that sounds painful as hell. Glad to hear you're back on your feet. And hey if you gotta stagger, doing it with swagger is the way to go. I feel like if I get to that point I'm gonna go full Penguin (batman) lmao.

    Great to see you, Uncle. I've been absent myself due to the need to see many of those who have sworn an oath to Hippocrates. I took your cane count as inspiration, through, as I foolishly walk away from my own occasionally. OK, daily. But it's gonna piss my wife off as well, so thanks for that.

    Sorry you need a cane and you are still in the walking away from your cane stage.

    If you are shopping for some really nice and inexpensive canes to add to your collection just send me a PM and I will share with your.
