Ron,

You really need to figure a way to "break-in" to the climate control box, and restore AC!  Or, you can open your freezer and stick a fan in front of it!  I'm sorry to hear you are having a bad pain day!  This calls for ice cream!  Since you have no AC, it will cool you down.  Have a great weekend, and hope you feel better soon!

Millions of "icy-cold" hugs (since warm would not be appropriate while you are in your little sweat-box!)

Dear Ron:

I've heard that it actually makes you feel cooler to drink HOT beverages...for some reason.  Beats me.  Myself, I'd rather be slurping up cold appletini's to the point where I don't even NOTICE that the A/C is off!  

Try lying in a shallow tub of tepid water (NOT COLD...BAD FOR YOUR HIP!!), sipping the beverage of your choice, and listening to some great reggae.  Maybe you could even drift off for a snooze (DON'T DROWN!!!  I'D HAVE TO KILL YOU IF YOU DID THAT!!!)

Please feel better, sweetie.  Hugs!

Holly

Hey !!

I can fix some cold and ice from north of Sweden if you just fix something to take it to you... he he no kidding !!
It's awful when desperately needing something and you can't get it like something to cool down. By the way I have weatherscope on my computer and there I can see it's - 48 celsius degrees today in Antarktis !!!
Hope you feel better soon and I agree with the others, got about 4 pair of crutches at home so I can join the battle against the people who runs you down.
I hope you get a nice weekend though your pain.

Hey Ron!

I just read Nettan's post about getting all us "gimp-stick" ladies together and forming an army for your protection...can't you just see it?  I had a good laugh picturing all of us running (O.K., limping) interference for you as you battle your way through the NYC public transit system! Sort of like a kneegeeks version of a presidential motorcade, right?

Enjoy the football, honey, and I hope today is a good pain-free one for you!

Hugs!

Holly

Hey Man !!!

Ron, if you do your best why should you loose your job ?
Have you ever told everyone at work how you have it ?
Maybe it's time for that if you haven't. Was the football good to watch ? Well I ended up in a cookcompetitionjury 2 days ago, saturday, after have put a not on friday which team should win then.
Me and my friend were called in and sat down eating 2 (!) dinners and making notes about how they prepared the food and so on. Was funny and tasted good also.
I hope you feel better today. You know I wish I were that orthopeadic surgeon I wanted and still want to be so I could help you out.
HEY MAN SUN STILL SHINES ON ME !!! 8)
How long are you going to be on crutches ?
Sending lots of hugs and sunny smiles as always.
