Sorry been busy since wife started her new job ( and i am looking for a proper job).. but recent updates ( compressed version ) Momo got a dominance wound and had to be kept alone for a few weeks( getting about every other day visits with her sister and cagemates. We have since started longer times with them together as the hair almost all back in and to length. So she spent the first night back with them last night and today. on other news I going bat (poop) crazy when home I cant do all the things I need to get done as some take supplies(money) or weather to let me be outside with power tools. and I cant do some things to my wife preference style. so I can only do so much in a day between taking her and picking her up. I did rebuild( replace carb and some other pieces ) on my first small motor repair ( lawn motor engine) and it now runs ( it needs a new throttle spring but i just put a stick in there and it off and running like no tomorrow )...

Lol but Feather look at how many miles you put on that truck it will need stuff. lol

I finally figured out what they got me a s at Best buy. I am a filler I only get hours when someone wants off or calls out. I need to get my self together and either do like some say and start squeaking about my disability back, or a find a job I can do and get paid for it lol.. Knocks on wood I not had any falls or injuries that laid me out last few weeks ( just developed a allergic reaction to getting stung now ( oh joy) so outdoors fun now must be prepped with a anti histamine.

SO I decided ifi am not working a proper Job by first of year I shall seek a lawyer and work on getting my disability back. I applied to about 10-20 jobs (I think some are crossed post on some sites) trying to get work and after each interview I never hear back. I guess limping in with a cane puts you on the no hire list as your a fall risk or won't be able to handle the work.) either way I can't prove it. SO I will keep doing the best I can and look into side pc work via word of mouth and do what ever odd job I can find

You've probably considered it, but have you checked out telecommuter jobs? They generally don't care how well you move, as long as are good with desktop software, have good typing skills, & can meet their schedules. I used flexjobs.com for a couple short-term 2nd jobs when I needed a little extra income a short while back. It's just a thought.

Thanks hutch but I not a person to talk on a phone with people I find my info and get off. ( like calling lowes hey do you still have x item in stock ok I will be by to get), I Know sometimes the online have not up to date or it sold out before i get there so if it something I need or want i will ask to hold but other wise i just wait until i get there .


Plus I prefer longer term. it could be something I look into and use wife name if i need extra funds lol

I know that atwork I do the recommended push for the company card and the extra warranty protection but i dont twist their arm over it cause I know that most people dont want it to cant afford a extra 150-200 bucks on a just in case.

Haha, just to be clear, it has WAAAY more than telemarketing jobs. I could not do those. I would have trouble convincing a man dying from thirst in the desert to buy a glass of water from me >.< Telecommuting are jobs that you can do from home, everything from temp to permeate.

I did data entry a couple of times: Was given access to a bunch of mismatched files & information, & had to enter it all into a database or spreadsheet. Think I got like $50-ish each time for what was around 4-5 hours of work sitting on my laptop in the recliner with a movie going. Not a lot hourly, I guess, but for one-shot things for extra cash, while I relaxed... it was good enough for me.

oh great just what we dont want. we seen that vino has been losing some weight recently figure it was not much since he was chunky when we got him. and that he was slimming down with a proper diet that not dried fruit and crackers. Well last vet visit he was like 130 grams and he had a couple teeth removed and I weighted him tonight and he only like 105 grams. I know he at least 8-9 years old been with us about 2 years) I am thinking he might be older than told. I know he the first one to the food bowl at night and there still some left when I pull out the bowls during the day ( I try to get them out and fresh in before they wake but does not always happens with wife work schedule. I give him a Freya treats outside the cage cause it seems they are always skinny looking I think Freya will just stay thin looking . Vino he just seems like he lost a lot of weight since coming to us. at first with new diet then the teeth issue and now losing some again. I am worried his past might be coming to bite him in the rear ( and us) with his poor diet past.

And with the way my job is I can more-less say I am unemployed, work black Friday weekend and I doubt I shall see any more hours from them. I am tired of calling to beg for hours all the time, and every where I look there at least one part of the job I cant do (or I know wont last long at cause of doing it) my cerebral palsy is now biting me in the rear when looking for work . so I am guessing I need to figure out Doctor visit and see what papers I need ot try and get my disability back.

Lol Terry it might be the safest for me too after last few days I think i spent more time with pain meds or on the floor stuck than doing anything else and like it is with the leak in roof if I could get up there I know why and most likely have it fixed by now
not waiting on some guy who has several others roofs to inspect before he comes here.

so since the 29th of November Vino down another 10 grams about he is always begging for food when it brought in of a evening. He enjoying hiis treat as I type this a entire suburban Sugar cupcake to himself. he not eating super fast but he is eating it. I might have to take him back to have teeth checked again and a fecal done to be sure he not got other health issues. I know since he came it took him a while to be use to use and now he gone from like 20+ grams to under 100 in 2 years. I a little worried my boy past might have caught up with him.,

You always face that when you take in rescues. I would most definitely get him in for a check, fecal too.

How old is he?

I was told he was about 7-8 when she brought him to me, and I had him for over 2 years now. I do know he came to us when we just came back from SGGA in 2016 we were not home a week when the girl called and went from there. He was neutered the Wednesday before she bring him over to me for a nail clipping and left him while I was doing it. I know he had a couple molars remove since coming to us and the vet said rest looked good. early in year or last year ( man I need to keep my records written down lol..
looked bakc in a older post it was just over a year ago when teeth were removed..

well I think we know what Vino issue is he having seizures again. I think he may of been having them at night while we are sleeping.. He had one tonight and fell to the cage bottom as we are working with the 3d printer a little ( like setup and test printing) with a low/no odor pla filament...

He is an old man. I would try giving him a treat late afternoon to tide him over til dinner time.

Hopefully it is a low blood sugar seizure.

well he did receive some extra treats and some coconut water as he came around I hopping your right Kim, but I have ot wait and see I might have to spend a few days ( later afternoons in here and watch him some more. Since he was not fully with it I took a chance and trimmed the tips off his nails. and he kept trying to hold my finger with both paws.

sorry been crazy with holidays and such, he starting ot put some weight back on less seizures being seen I started to taking each day wife works taking a group of kids with me when I pick her up or drop her off to work. Or was until the 27th.
We were home wife had day off and was laying down from a head ache, I was playing on the PS4, when a delivery truck rolled down the hill here and smashed though our fence and hit the truck. so I now have to wait until the truck is repaired before can take them out again.

shock Oh my, that is awful to have your truck hit. So glad it wasn't your house or you weren't in the yard. It could have been so much worse.

Glad you are safe.

sorry been crazy few weeks so her a quick updates.
Truck been in shop a week got another week before it might be done they found more damage than they first thought ( well gee you think I had several tons hit the truck and move it.
Vino been holding his own, no lost no gain but is first in the bowl for food and the lack of snacks or giving not helped. ( might be a age thing for him)
Peso and Euro are being worked into the snowflake colony so far we managed to get both to accept Marshmallow ( I hope she dont teach them her sneak biting trick) lol
We picked up a triple critter nation cage( used ) but once power washed and dried and wiped down and rinsed again) we put it upstairs and it will par part of the snowflake colony home. so we can turn the smaller cage into a hospital cage with a full size wheel if we ever need it ).

Been to the doc fighting with them a little as my blood pressure was super high and they were panic ing some lol. I felt fine but heck sitting around all day is not the best for you so working on that. and I might have a temporary job ( about 120 ) if they get the log in part straight so I can approve the background check they want to do. ( if they let me go or I dont get the job I decided to fight to get my disablilty back I cant keep doing with out in the long run during winter months)

I hope you get some relief soon!

So how do you like the triple critter nation cage?

Mine at home is a bisbane style from Suncoast, and because Stewie is so hyper, I'm considering a larger cage. He's starting to really get on the girls nerves when it comes to making his laps while they try to nap at night. He jumps on the outside of their sleeping pouch and barks till one or both come out to play. Since Fiona is quarantined to her own cage till she heals, it's all on Dot. (She needs to drop quite a few grams anyway...) He loves his toys, but there's not enough room for more than one or two of them at a time.

Isn't the critter nation cage(with add-ons) easier to clean too?

Dawn only had it a few days in use but I power-washed it before we put them in. but so far it been a breeze cleaning the drop pan and a snap to assemble. My only draw back I found with these nice large doors is not as many places to attach bridges to ( running from front to the back). I did get the job start Thursday even if it only temporary 120 days of work better than none. and like i said and told my wife if i can handle it or they feel I am too slow then it too SS office I go.
I stripped and have about 2/3 of the glider room stripped cleaned and toys/bedding all cleaned to come back in. ( kills my back bent over the tub for 2 hours scrubbing toys and rinsing them.

Well, congratulations!!!

Remodel team is a great place to start with Walmart! Especially if you don't mind working overnight! I did 12 years with them and don't regret it. I would have stayed longer if I didn't get married and become contractor.

well looks like my job will end possible if i cant get a ada ( accommodation approved ) I am told that I do great work but I since I am unable to keep up with the rest of the crew That I will be let go unless this ada is approved. So with the 3 different members wanting me in their section cause I do my job but by standards I am slow I may not be employed long. I can't win, I guess time to talk to a lawyer about getting my Disability back ( even if my wife against the idea)

I would get a lawyer and go after Walmart.

They are changing the greeters job and now a lot of people who are greeters will no longer be able to hold that position because they are physically unable to do it.

That is discrimination.

I've never heard of that, but I've never worked in the personnel office either. It might be something new.(It's been 14 years since I worked for them.)

Walmart is a good company if you can get in the door. Is this a form of some sort to be filled out by a doctor or professional?

I don't put anything past them, and as a temp, they can let you go at anytime for any reason. But, if you're good enough to work as a temp, you should be good enough to hire as permanent. Remodels are hard work. I've done a few...

My advice to you would be keep your chin up, be nice, work only as hard as you physically can, be part of the team, be on time, clock in and out correctly and timely, get to know where things are or have been moved to, and last but not least, help the customers when it's possible. That's the Walmart way... Oh and "Give me a 'W'!" Lol!

Dawn yes a form I will probably have to take off to get filled out before the 22 of month. I know about the greeter issue. I have the Cerebral palsy like some of the ones they cover just not as bad( knocks on wood steel and iron ) With the remodel that want a 4 sections done at a time and I can barely do 2 in 8 hours cause I struggle to lift and get the shelves in with out falling or dropping the shelf. I am slow I know it I told them but I am more detailed minded that the kids and they left me unsupervised for 2 weeks freezing my poms off scrapping and retagging frozen food alone. I figure if i denied I just start fighting for my disablilty back and just do side work to make some minor spending money and figure out how to sell truck to wife so i wont have anything in my name.

it final yesterday I did the transfer from the temp to a cashier position,( training now) and I will be the outside garden center cashier ( which works out well with all my grass cutting xp) . I love the idea I can wear shorts too while outside ( I got to get some color on these pale toothpicks). Sadly sounds like i will be working a lot of weekends but that ok I don't go out much anyhow lol.

Lol!!! I'm sure the paycheck has been great! I'm guessing you're working over night during remodel? Dayshift will be a whole lot different.

The garden center will keep you busy for a few months. We have a few flowers and vegetables at our store for those like my mom who just couldn't wait. I'm sure where you are there are still some frosty mornings. I just put my humming bird feeder out yesterday. Hoping to see them soon.

I bet your fuzzbutz have missed you! How's everyone doing?

Gliders have been lacking in special time with me but I am working on fixing that some with special day out when me when I am not working walmart or cutting grass ( plus they getting a lot of treats) .. tonight they all got a corn on the cob mini andI given them some extra loves when I can.

Your loss is shared with us through your wonderful tales. Relive the joyful times and accept the end for what it was: the conclusion to a life-long tale you made together. Glide forever free across the Rainbow Bridge, Muffin.

Vino does have another tooth needing extraction, set for tomorrow. We left him and Leeloo at the vets as they always been together since he came into our care. Only because i cant be at 3 places at once. I cant be dropping my wife off at work then going to work while trying to get to the vet at same time plus i cant be there and work while it being done. i did run out of vets office and get them some of what we feed to make them as comfortable as possible and left their travel pouch with vet (must remember to get a clean on in morning. Sterling seems to be doing ok with out Muffin around. I just hope that vino will enjoy a few more years with us after this tooth extraction it will be his second one with us.

Sorry guys been crazy and upsetting with the lost of our beloved Muffin. but here some quick updates. Vino is on mends I need to check hos weight I think he still losing weight. I went today and picked up Muffin ashes, They came in a nice little box with her ashes in a silk bag ( I spent a good 30 minuted in truck crying ( doing so again as I type) holding them. It appears that the vet office took and put muffin name and front Paw prints in Clay and sent them to us after we had left. (sorry no pic right now) I been working my regular hours at walmart then going out and cutting all week until full night then picking up my wife coming home feed and drug the kids and shower then crashing until alarm goes off and repeat.
I almost brought home poor glider while at vets office dealing with a nasty,smelling tooth abscess but, didnt cause 1 I be dead by morning from wife or on street with said glider. 2 i am going to help the lady if she calls mentoring and sending her to here and related facebook groups, sites to get proper stuff.

First, hug2. Made me tear up... The vet did a sweet thing thinking of you like that. It's a wonderful thing when someone cares enough to step up like that.

hey guys thanks for well wishes and thought this year seems to be the one of poor timing.
I lost my grandmother almost 2 weeks ago (long battle with cancer and such related issues for being 89). Then i found out last night one of my grass customers (who was a friend ) had passed on Thursday from a sudden heart attack...I am in shock over his passing cause he was in better shape than me and was still working at 68,

outside the sad new everyone else ( glider wise ) is ok another scare with the horde as wife left cage door open as she went to get more treats and end up with 2 gliders loose for a hour and Freya getting nipped again ( but this time no infection or anything (been checking her daily ) working more and more between grass cutting and Walmart I not had a true day off ( outside off going to grandmom funeral and such and that not relaxing) I think we are taking a few days in July off to do some things my loving wife wants to do and have a friend visit with her million gliders lol) I do believe that will be during the SGGA time frame and since we cant go we thinking of possible hitting the state fair and what not..

So glider world I am still around lol.. I had enough bad luck this year between the deaths of family and friends, I had trailer/mower issues on top of it all. the mower I knew was coming and got the parts so I could do the work when I had a chance ( of course it had to be 88+ out and as i am putting it all back on it pours suddenly, not a few drops but a downpour that make a fire hose look like a drip ( I was soaked before for I could even get off ground) I end up with a bucket of water ( in my tool bucket when I work on stuff on the ground full of wet tools) before i could even grab them. lucky it only did so for 20 minutes I dumped the tools out dried them off and finished my work with dry cloths on and then ran mower and cut my yard. ) then the next week I kept hearing a squeaking noise when ever I move the trailer .( quick check and yup bearings failing in wheel .got the stuff did the one side and now issues until I start home ( boom look in mirror and smoke pouring out the other side ( so thankfully someone stopped to help since i didn't have proper tools ) I out at 11pm changing bearings on side of the highway. make it home and was good for 2 weeks went to pull myself off the ground from sharpening the blades and I found this same tire loose again just like before. spent the last 4 days freaking out trying to find a replacement axle/hub and nothing i can buy and installed before July 4th weekend ( delivery dates) so I stressing out and trying to buy a new trailer so I can work ( grass cutting) but no luck due to bestbuy card and still trying to play caught up ( last bill then some more medical stuff to caught up) but it hurt my credit so I need a cosigner. ( noone wants to do that these days.) but my friend help me out by buying the trailer outright and I am now paying him back over the next 3 months ( knocks on wood no major issues pop up..So it looking like I used up all the bad luck hopefully and things will start fallnig in place ( if Walmart will actually get me out on time from work I will be happy this 20-30 minutes of calling to be relieved sucks more so when noone answering the phones)

Sad update to inform our fellow slaves we lost Sterling on Saturday to thrush fungal infection.
We had been dealing with this slave health issue( possible kidney stones or urinary tract issue still not fixed) I am still fighting whatever wrong with me, and came home Friday night fed the masters and Sterling didn't come out like normal , Wife peaked in and seen he was not well, I crawled up the steps and we checked him over, and found ( first though was a stuck mini marshmallow on his lower jaw.) but after closer inspection realized it was not and was actually something skin related. I stayed up all night giving him water( pedilyte mix) every 20 minutes as long as he took it . Roughly after 3 doses like this he started to perk up and squirm I set him in the cage between ( timer buzzes) and watched him. he was soon bouncing around like normal( between the 2and 3rd doses I though he had lose sub-come and had slipped into a coma. then boom he was up and bouncing around. Contacted the vet as soon as they opened and took him in. came home with meds and dosed him and let him climb into the pouch with his cage-mates. I then went to trim my yard and came in after 30 minutes and had found he had passed away in his sleep, We think he never fully recovered from the lost of Muffin ~2 months before, and then the fungal just got hold of him in his depressed state and we missed it with both of us being super busy between holidays,work, family deaths, and illness.

When my wife and i talked last night in bed we agreed we felt we let him down since he never truly bonded with the cage-mates and being so busy, We now are requiring us each to spend with each group at least a hour so we both can check more closely on them. (way we going to do it is who ever home first will spend time with a group and then the other person does do with a different group. and I am now setting one of my 2 days offs( come fall it will be easier ) spending the day with nothing but their spoiling and care related needs ( above what I am currently doing)..

Glider free My blind friend and keep Muffin safe until we join you...

I am sorry to hear about Sterling, but it sounds like you'll be making things that much better for the colony now, so something good came from the loss. Your family can take comfort in that. Glider free on the other side of the rainbow, Sterling.

Still around and still kicking, and still busy I have spent more time with the kiddos and I even got Kahless, euro and peso to climb on me and not crab for over 10 minutes each even if it meant standing with arm in the cage entire time. I do have kidney stones ( in both kidneys) and i been passing them one at a time ( feels like on some I have a truck bouncing off the inside as they move.) This has been ongoing for over a month, it like start to pass one then be fine for a week (if lucky) then boom suddenly another one wants out )

On a sad/side note we have a lady that been on and off for last 2 years trying to give us her lone glider her don purchased and then left for college, She been in contact with me again and I keep informing my wife and she says no as always.I have a feeling it goings to be one of those deals that she stops in for a nail trim and when she leaves him here.

Left for college.. I hope the glider is OK by himself. And she plays with him/her.

I tell myself it's only one glider, but I I know the ordeal of a single... Separate cage, quarantine, vet visit... Intros, then attachment...

well she spoiling the glider I have done multiple nail trims now, he a sweet heart when he wants to be.( aren't they all ). WE had a minor sore issue with momo and waffles and so we had to put them alone until she healed up and such but he started to sm a little ( made his tail bald in at the tip )so he was intro to Marshmallow and the girls . and momo may have a new friends coming as a friend of ours is not doing great and my wife agreed to take in one of the boys ( neutered already) I have already lost over 75% of my yards so I have some free time to start playing with the kids more as I am taking breaks from other work until I can get it all caught up.
