After bein’ on all fours for 5 hours on the kitchen floor with a Q-tip and Gus’s favorite denture brush, an all, we’re tryin’ to be environmental and all, we like the color green too.
And Gus’s denture brush sure gets the tarter and large bits of brown food stains, off his choppers, not to mention the gum glue debris left on the inside of the plates and all.
Gus, he likes the Polident and all, and we like to take turns resorting to vigorous over brushing to remove the deposits and plaque, scrubbing and scrubbing those plates every night, oh, sometimes they git so dirty because Gus likes to gnaw on mahogany wood chips, and all, it’s a nervous habit he picked up in the World War II, bein’ in the trenches and all, so we have to use a steel wool pad on em…but we don’t complain…
So’s to make sure we aren’t wastin’ anything… we try to find new ways to recycle household items, food leftovers and utensils to be used in more than one way and all.
My kitchen floor is now clean and sanitized, cuz I pour lye and barbicide on it so we can eat off it as we do every Tuesday night to commemorate theTuesday Night Gus slipped on a prune pit and fell in the kitchen and broke both arms, both his knee caps, collar bone and right cheek and all.
I was in Iowa at the time visiting my niece Bonnie Sue.
who had a feedlot accident, poor girl, “She somehow got pushed in by a newborn baby calf,” the hire hand said, so Gus had to lay low on the kitchen floor for 40 days and 40 nights waitin’ for me to git on back.
When I came home I found him there, quite a bit thinner with a long white beard and all, he was singin’, a song over and over and over he musta made up and all…I dragged him out of the kitchen by his left cheek, the only part of him not broke, so I could clean up, you know Gus left quite a mess there and all.
After good once over on the floor, counters and ceiling, I called the paramedics and they took him to County General where he did just fine because he had a window there and the other 6 men in his room he shared with were very polite with good table manners and liked to walk around as soon as the sun went down, and it got dark and all.
Some of the men got cold at night and bundled up by puttin’ their beds together. Gus wasn’t able to move and all, so a nice man came over and laid down and shared his bed and all…During the summer months that kept Gus warm and cozy he said and all…So glad to have him back in one piece with none of his natural powers abated….
Every night after cleansing his teeth, I help him put his oxygen tubing in his nostrils so he can breath while he sleeps and all, then we both put his night time Liberty Catheter in, that hooks on to the side of the bed.
We use his Liberty Night Catheter bag with its tubing to water the smaller house plants, remove surface grime from the bathtub and spray the brake dust off the hubcaps of Gus’s truck.
I figure what’s good enough for Gus’s mouth and other areas of his body and all, is good enough for the kitchen floor and other hard to clean areas of the house and all…
Thank you all for lettin’ me blog,
I had a distant cousin from Sweden named Blog, poor thing and all, he had to be sedated most of his adult life. No one ever heard from again, but I understand he was good with parakeets and flies, and all.
