The Old Grey Mare

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006

Well, that’s what I feel like at the moment. Went back to my orthopedic surgeon today because of the problems I have been having with right knee that started when I was out in San Diego. Now I’m scheduled for surgery number 6 to include Arthroscopy, Meniscectomy (this would be the 6th one of those) and Chondroplasty (that’s a new one to me). Chondroplasty means ‘reshaping the joint surface’ – ouch. I like Dr. Adkison – he’s a straight shooter – no need to go through another MRI – with my history, previous Arthroscopy and the amount of swelling I have he knew what was wrong. He said I could have tried going the physical therapy route but the “relief” would probably be temporary, if any.

I suspect all the walking I did in San Francisco didn’t help any. Then being on my feet while in San Diego and the walking in Knoxville for the TN – AF game. But I wouldn’t trade those memories for the world.

Just means I won’t be coaching the little kids for a while but I had already warned the folks running the program that I could be out.

More Squabbling

Thursday, September 14th, 2006

I was really hoping to get back to blogging about more interesting things than sibling squabbles but it is really kind of sad when Megan uses her blog to vent her feeling only to emotionally blackmailed because of it. She spoke her mind about how she felt about a voicemail that was left on her phone. She didn’t like being treated like a 6 year old. So now she gets “threatening” messages – lawsuits, restraining orders, “dad won’t pay for your car” – all because she is tired of the bs and spoke out about it in her blog.

Once again she gets stuck in the middle because she has a relationship with me and she is given nothing but grief for it. Obviously things are being said to emotional blackmail Megan because of it, probably in the hopes that she will wind up hating me too. Pretty sad when siblings have to stoop so low.

The Truth Shall Set Us Free

Wednesday, September 13th, 2006

Seems someone is once again worried about what I say. Threats of lawsuits abound – more like emotional blackmail. All these individuals want to do is hurt Megan because she has a good relationship with me. This same opportunity was afforded them – they declined.

A little FYI here:

Can I sue someone who says or writes something defamatory about me?

In order to prove defamation, you have to be able to prove that what was said or written about you was false. If the information is true, or if you consented to publication of the material, you will not have a case. However, you may bring an defamatory action if the comments are so reprehensible and false that they effect your reputation in the community or cast aspersions on you.

Sadly, I write the truth. So I suppose those who are upset are afraid the truth will hurt them. But again, it’s the truth and the truth shall set me free.

Did a little checking on the traffic to my blog – barely 14 visitors a day. The last time a certain person even visited my blog was July 15th. All this fur is flying because Megan is tired of being treated they way she has been treated by these individuals.

I suppose there is fear that someone could find out that: A – I’m still alive, B – I’m really not the bitch that I’ve been made out to be, C – it was these individual’s choice to sever ties with me. I still remember Megan telling me that she had been told I had signed a piece of paper disowning these other individuals. I asked her to get proof of that – it was never given. Chances are it would have been forged if it had been produced.

Sigh…
