feeling better

I celebrated the 60th anniversary of D-Day with projectile eruptions from both ends of my body. I spent most of yesterday and half the night curled in a fetal position on my bathroom rug while tumultuous dreams ran through my head every time I managed to fall asleep. Bejus, but that was bad.

I don't know what I did (ate a bad burrito, maybe), but the worst appears to be over now. I'm a little wobbly on my feet and I feel like a wrung-out dishrag, but that's one hell of a lot better than I was yesterday.

I had to be at my new lawyer's office in Savannah at 11:00 this morning to pick up my paperwork for the divorce appeal. I agreed to get it filed at the Effingham County courthouse today to save some cash on lawyers fees. Today was the deadline to file it, too, so I HAD to get that job done. I didn't think I was going to make it at 11:00 last night.

But I felt well enough this morning to drive into Savannah, pick up the papers and drive all the way back to Springfield to get them filed. Mission accomplished.

One thing I worried about while driving into town today was encountering a bunch of G-8 protesters. They've gathered in Savannah and Brunswick because security has Sea Island locked up tighter than a tick on a dog's belly. But I didn't see any goofballs, lunatics or bedwetters on the street (other than the ones who are native to Savannah and are there ALL the time). The only unusual sight I saw was a caravan of about 25 city police cars heading down Oglethorpe Street toward the Talmadge Bridge, which is closed to commercial traffic today.

A lot of locals are worried that Savannah could turn into another Seattle if the protesters kick up their heels. I don't think that's going to happen

It's too got-dam hot for that crap in Georgia this time of year.


Rob - I'm so glad that you're feeling better. Sorry you had to get better to see a lawyer *spit* but, whatever works. Anyway, stay away from burrrtos for a while ... from the sounds of things, they cloud your "thinking". Best, Terry (BTW, I've added Costa Rica to my list of "wantasees").

Glad to hear you are on the mend. And somehow I don't get the feeling the officers of the law down there are going to take to kindly to any shananigans from a bunch o protesters. ('specially *Damnyankee* ones).

Just remind the protestors that DELIVERANCE and the final scene of EASY RIDER were filmed somewhere nearby.

Or were based on actual events that happened nearby.

It could have been the crap from your gums and sinuses got into your digestive track and made you sick.
