RT,

Two comments:

First >> great find on the economy BR player - well done indeed

As for Paint Selection;

The wife and I agonized forever on the color for the theater walls. We had decided an a pretty dark rust/brown color. I then had some primer "pre-tinted"
(in the hope I could get by with one final coat).

After finishing with the priming - we liked the primer color so much that >> I just had the topcoat custom matched to the primer color.

So much for a scientific selection process!!

I'll make sure the wife doesn't see the primer coat then. Potential problem solved! Well that would mean she did not help paint and she has offered to cut in the ceiling and corners........Hmmmmmm now what to do. Free help or potential paint color changes. Thanks for giving me something else to think about!

Looks like I am in good company with this crowd.

Well I doubt that you will see it this weekend. Maybe next weekend. Much like you I was placed on injured reserve this past week. I had gall bladder surgery on Tuesday and have spent the rest of the week recovering. I have a few restrictions until I go back to the doctor early next week. After that I'll see what he'll let me do.

I think I have picked the darkest color for sure it is called "Starry Night" it is a very inky, dark indigo blue. I will be painting the ceiling and the front wall this color. I am however still waffling slightly on the lighter hues.

I'm picking paints as well, and have a "Starry Night" chip pinned to the wall. I'll be curious to see how it looks on your ceiling.

Is surgery really an acceptable excuse on this board? The crowd on my thread is too hardened to accept such a thing.

Nah...it's a good excuse. Most of the folks on this board are midlife and surgery slows most folks down.

Yup,

I agree with ya all. Most of us are midlife or a little better and Father Time just catches up with us no matter how fast we run.

I'm glad surgery is an acceptable excuse for lack of progress, if it wasn't I don't know what would be! Although my progress here is slow (painfully so), I am a very busy guy in many other areas (as most of you are too) of life so being sidelined is contradictory to my nature, not just in theater building.

I had heard horror stories of gall bladder surgeries gone bad, but mine (finds a very large solid piece of wood and knocks with gusto) has gone without a hitch. I have been sore and had some discomfort, but really no pain to speak of. I was also able to use just Aleve for my pain. Now I am just sore and a little slower in my moving around than I usually am. Overall I'm recovering very nicely, and obviously that is a very good thing!

I hope so! Right now it is the only excuse I have!

At my current speed you just may have the color up on you walls before me, then I can see how it looks for MY theater and you can be the guinea pig!

Surgury is most definitly an appropriate excuse for lack of progress...if you want to milk it a little further, I've come up with strategy for procrastinating...I just say "I'm in the planning stages" Its like my dad always said, "Thats the problem with paying someone to think...you never know when they're working"

Hey! Trying to make the guy feel a little better by stating the obvious! How do you think we get the cashola to make these builds a reality?

When we have poster children like this, we may certainly be branded mid-life:

Let's see:
  • Surgery
  • Scout events
  • Unemployment
  • Budgetary issues
  • Injury
  • Flooding
  • Sunny days
  • Golf outings
  • Hitting a gas line while using a pneumatic nailer and having to evacuate the house while the fire department kept it from blowing up
  • Weddings
  • Vacation
  • Hate the wife so I'll hid in the basement and watch the 'puter while she thinks I'm working
  • Friends over
  • Having an internet stalker and removing all photos and updates form your post because they were "too curious"
  • Backyard movie parties
  • Playing with the kids/helping them with homework/moving them to college/going to their wedding (some builds last a long time)
  • Working on the kitchen in the beach house
  • Loss of motivation while finishing drywall mudding and sanding
  • Work
  • Divorce party
    &
  • Finding some black substance on the walls of the basement and having the house condemned while that crap was removed (or whatever that story was that Hanesian was selling)

Those are "good" excuses that many of us have used. Not that I know anything about that...

Hello, I'm from the GOVERNMENT and I'm here to help!

Great list CJ. Out of those you have listed, I have used 9 of them as reasons/excuses to why the progress is so ssssslllllllooooowwwww around here.

Glad to hear the surgery and recoverly are going well. I wish mine went that smooth. Maybe I am just a baby but at one point I had what the doctor referred to as "Referred Pain" in my lower neck the night after surgery. Man, I was poppin Vicodin like Skittles. It only lasted about 12 hours but that was a beast.

It is a good excuse to catch up on anything you have recorded on the DVR. I have been working so much but at the real job and on the shed my DVR only has a about 7 percent of the memory left...

Heal fast and get back to it.

Man, that took longer than I thought it would...

My doctor warned me about this, and I was expecting to get some of it, however it did not show. I don't think your a baby, pain is pain, I had some serious issues when I would have an attack. When going though the attacks I thought I was going to die. The only position that brought any relief was the fetal position.

I have had a couple of interesting moments with the residual CO2 they use to inflate your belly. The night after the surgery I leaned over and the noises that came from my belly sounded like a hot water bottle. Kind of caught the wife and I off guard. I have been catching up on my movie/TV watching it is nice to take it easy and not feel guilty in doing so.

Take your time rose and enjoy the mandatory break, and heal up. We all need some time here and there to recharge.

Well,

I'm still recovering, been released by the doc to return to work on Monday. Was looking at painting (yes I finally picked my colors more on that later), but due to other plans and the wife still thinking I need some additional recovery time she put the kibosh on those intentions. I don't mind not working on the HT when I choose not to but hate to be told not to when I want to. The doc did say to take it easy for about a month due to all the stuff on the inside so I guess I'll go easy on the orders of the doc. Maybe I can convince the wife next weekend is the perfect weekend to paint! Of course I'll offer to take her out to a nice restaurant afterward. Say Taco Bell or White Castle, I could pull out all the stops and go to Golden Corral!

Did your Doc specify exactly which month you should take it easy for? Because I took it easy for a month once and found it suited me so well that I decided to stretch it out a bit. That was about two years ago, I think ...

Glad to hear the recuperation seems to be progressing well. Getting older - it ain't for sissies!!

RT,

Sounds like Dr. Hanes is offering you a good 2nd opinion for recovery.... As for the need to have the gall bladder removed:
Was this a sudden event like an attack, or have you known for some time this was going to be needed?

The reason I ask is because at my last physical the doctor gave me a prescription to have a sonogram done for possible gall bladder concerns...? Instead I went by my favorite dive and ordered a cheeseburger.


Feel free to PM your response if you prefer

I wonder if laughing after gall bladder hurts? If so I would reccomend RT take a vacation from this site!

Glad you're feeling better!

The reason I ask is because at my last physical the doctor gave me a prescription to have a sonogram done for possible gall bladder concerns...? Instead I went by my favorite dive and ordered a cheeseburger.


Feel free to PM your response if you prefer

No worries, this all happened in about the span of two or three months. I had about four attacks three pretty major, and a minor one. This prompted my wife into threatening me and taking me screaming and kicking to the doc. After a couple of tests it was determined that my gall bladder was working at about 20%. The surgeon stated they recommend removal between 30-35%. If you are interested in further info I can PM you with all of the particulars I discussed with my doc. Things far too wordy and mundane to cover here. I'll give you all the info I can if your interested.

I SOOOOO can identify with that. I have started a "life style" change trying to force myself into a healthier mindset and better eating habits. I'm with cuzed, I love the proverbial greasy hamburger or even better a breaded tenderloin made from about a half a pig and about four pounds of breading. Oh, and don't forget to make it a platter with fry's, cold slaw, and a sweet tea!

Glad you're feeling better!


It actually did hurt to laugh the first few days. I'm good to go in the laugh department now though so bring it on!

On a side note, you have to love the internet. My wife and I have been looking for a bigger vehicle to replace our Chrysler 300. Without much luck locally, we located a vehicle in St. Louis of all places so the wife and I made a trip there today to get our "new to us" GMC Acadia. The down side, a 12 hour day out and back. The up side we saved several thousand dollars off of anything we could find locally. It is amazing to me that several years ago I would not have ever dreamed of doing something like that. Now I would do it all over again in a heart beat. If anyone is close to St. Louis or willing to drive a little ways and looking for a new or used vehicle I highly recommend Behlmann Buick GMC, they were great to work with. Our salesman, John Geragosian , made everything as easy as it could be and went out of his way to make sure everyone was on the same sheet of music before we made the trip out.

On an even better note, the wife thought I have progressed in my rehab enough to mention to me about the prospect of painting this weekend. That is very good news. I guess it could be she was delirious from the 8 hrs cooped up in the car with me. Either way it was her idea so I should be good to go!

RT,

Congrats on getting that Acadia.

As a former die-hard Suburban owner - I have been following this new class of GM crossovers, and have been hearing good things.

Also; sending you a gall-bladder PM...
