Bag of Randomness

  • Happy birthday to my favorite wife.
  • And a happy birthday to my favorite friend named Brent that is in the hospice ministry.
  • Last night I went to Sonic, placed my order, and then realized I forgot my wallet.  I had to let them know my goof, and they told me they would hold the order but just needed my name.  I replied, “I’m an idiot.”  The lady laughed and said it will be ready when I would get back.
  • The 80’s had the Cola Wars, and I guess the oughts have the Computer Wars.  Apple has had some hard hitting and effective ads toughting how they are superior to a PC, namely the “I”m a Mac.  And I’m a PC” commercials.  Microsoft has fired back with some “I’m a PC” commercials, but the ones as of late where a customer is given $1000 to find a new computer and ends up buying a PC over a Mac has struck a nerve with the Mac folks.
  • I enjoy following Meghan McCain, and totally agree with her on her point.
  • At the 3:30 mark, Glenn Beck totally goes bonkers.
  • I’m not sure how much I’ll be posting next week.  For one, I will be licking my wounds from the affliction of all my Bible-beating-pastoral-friends regarding yesterdays post on pastoral salaries.
  • That comment is suppose to be jovial.
  • Also, WifeGeeding goes into surgery this Monday and I plan on being home to take care of her.  There’s a possibility that I will have time to post, but I want to make sure all my attention is focused on her.
  • I had some questions from some of you regarding her surgery.  This surgery will do nothing to help improve her vision in her only eye, but this surgery will be one her open eye cavity where her glass-eye resides.  The orbital implant will be replaced with coral.  The old orbital implant has shifted, and is considered a bit small for her now that she is an adult.  Recovery is going to be tough, because any eye movement will cause pain.  She will then have her current glass-eye modified to fit back over the new coral made orbital implant.  After six month, vessels and such will grow into the coral, a peg will be drilled into it, and a new glass-eye will be fitted that will work like a ball-and-socket joint.  All of this with create a more natural movement for the prosthesis.
  • If you are interested, this procedure is called enucleation.  You can click on the following link to learn more about it and see a video, but I just want to warn you that if medical procedures kind of freak you out, then don’t click this link.
  • I may tweet through the surgery on Monday.
  • Grace

    Happy Birthday Wife Geeding! I hope you have a great day.

    Didn't I mention that insurance isn't covering this surgery? The Geedings will be hurting for a while.

    Our prayers are for wife Geeding speedy rec overy from her surgery

  5. I did the exact same thing once. Pulled up to Sonic, placed an order, then realized I didn't have my wallet. Nothing quite so embarrassing as to have to push the button again and tell them that you don't have money to pay them. 🙂

    Happy Birthday WG! Good luck with your surgery, I'll say a prayer for you!

    Happy Birthday to WifeGeeding…and thanks for letting us play with Keith (on this blog).

    By the way, you should start consulting your readers before putting things like vacation or surgery on your calendar. Frankly, next week is not a good week for me to not have BON. Late September would have fit my schedule better. Maybe you should talk t the doc about rescheduling.

    In the future ask. If you choose not to ask at least schedule things six months out so we can adjust our schedules to meet yours…although I think that would be a little selfish of you.

    By the way, a pastor I know wanted to have surgery but couldn't afford it on his salary 😉

    🙂 to David's Bryant's last paragraph!

  10. Brent says:

    I made the blog! I made the blog! Thanks for the birthday wishes Keith. Prayers for K's surgery.

  11. WifeGeeding says:
