    AN old friend who was raised in Columbia says that it is like that in the mountains. Of course, if your lungs are good enough.

    Congratulations, @clnire and Geordi!!!

    Good morning. Seems we had more rain last night and it's still raining. I guess that's a good thing because if it was snow we'd be in trouble. We'll get a break tomorrow, but then it's back to rain again. 38 days until Spring!

    Anybody here have any problems with services from the Geek Squad? We've made 2 appointments to fix our fridge that's under warranty and both times they didn't show up.

    Hi all. I wanted to let everyone know that I talked with Johnny's (Iffy) youngest daughter today. He needs all the prayers he can get. About 3 weeks ago, Johnny had a stroke. He's relatively ok, he actually drove himself to the hospital, and she said there were two mods in the stuff he took with him. But things deteriorated, I don't know if he had additional stroke(s) or just more damage set in. He has a significant amount of cognitive damage, both in what he's able to understand and what he can communicate. She said that there are some things he understands but other things he definitely doesn't, and he really isn't able to communicate at all which is super frustrating for him. Patty is being cared for, but they aren't sure how much of that he understands. He knows who people are, and they took a photo of Johnny and Patty to him, and sometimes he just holds it and cries. Not sure if it's because he just misses her, or if he's worried about who is taking care of her. He's not to a place yet where they can take him to see Patty, and they aren't able to take Patty to him. I did suggest maybe having Patty do a video for him and she thought that was a good idea.

    He was moved to a rehab facility about a week ago, so hopefully with therapy he can regain much of what has been lost as the brain makes new pathways around the damage. He is able to write his name which is wonderful. His Dr's have said no vaping, and they are respecting that. I did tell her that nicotine has been shown to be an effective tool with other diseases/conditions where there are cognitive problems. My brain was reeling from the news and I didn't think to have her ask about a nicotine patch, but will see if she can ask about that. She thought maybe it was out of his system by now, but she did wonder if it would be a comfort type thing even if he couldn't vape it. She'd said that one day he was digging through his toiletries kit, searching for something and not finding it, and unable to let them know what he was looking for. I told her it might have been his mods, she said she realized later it was likely either that or his wallet. He did have a visit from one of the ramp rats. I really don't know much more than that, but she said she didn't mind me contacting her every so often for updates, and I'll let y'all know when there is more news. If I can remember how to do it, I'm going to put a msg on the front porch also with a link to this post.

    As for me, I never meant to just not be here. It's really difficult for me to be on the computer very long, so I only get one when I have to check something, and usually don't stay on too long. More and more time passed that I wasn't able to get on here, and at some point it just turned into me not being here. I think about many of y'all quite a bit and hope y'all are well. I have been keeping in touch with Kenna a lot by phone and also Johnny, so I know about Bells, and Patrick and Ginny. I'll try to check back on here in a day or so, and anyone that has my number feel free to call me if you have questions, but also I've told y'all everything I know about it unless I've forgotten something.

    Might it be time to go to the store and speak with the "Store Manager" - not supervisor or anyone else in the 'Geek Squad" (When something went wrong at Best Buy - It worked for "Me" a couple of times ) . . . AND - If that does not work contact Best Buy executives by posting a complaint via their website/blog (About Best Buy - Best Buy Corporate News and Information) or better yet social media . . . As - I understand it has worked for a number of people . . .:thumbs:

    Here is all the info Ya' NEED - Corporate Offices, Facebook/Twitter Account, etc :

    Ya' can also find out info about how to get results on this advocates' website - "Elliot's Advocacy" too.

    Hope the information is helpful . . . Just Sayin' . . . :facepalm:

    Although the news in your post is not great. it is absolutely wonderful to see any post from Ya' . . . And - If I may be so bold to say - "YOU" young lady are missed by many . . . :wub:

    Now - If you would be so kind to pass along to "Iffy" (Johnny's) Family "Our" collective concern and truly hope that he is able to get better as soon as possible and "We" are thinking about him . . .

    Also Sending . . .

    GOOD VIBES & POSITIVE HEALTHY THOUGHTS . . .

    Oh, Deb, thanks for posting this.
    A few of us were worried about Johnny's health in his loving caregiving to Patty. Knew that he had some aches and pains along the way, but am so sad to read about his condition. I had wondered why he didn't respond to my post about the Florida storm. Please extend my love and good wishes for a speedy recovery and to keep up the good fight.

    On the other hand, it's so great to hear from you @Debadoo! Sorry you had to bring us such bad news, but it's nice to hear from you. Please don't be a stranger!

    For Johnny and Patty, I agree with Uncle. Please pass our love and caring thoughts to them and the family.
