Broly the new super saiyan beardie

This forum is specifically for people who want to share day-to-day stories about their beardies... the weird or fun stuff. This is not a forum for seeking help, but more just for sharing the cuteness that is your beardie.

Hi –

So a couple of weeks have slipped by, including my husband’s time off last week, and here it is Friday of his first week back at work already. He has another week off around memorial day, and then he’s off again the last week of June. His employer has a fairly generous time off policy, but it’s “use it or lose it” before the end of their fiscal year in June, so he tries to save it up for the summer.

Anyway, we survived his first “staycation” – managed to get a few things done, but not as much as we originally hoped, as usual. It was actually pretty nice to have him home for a change.

Football season starting up again already :o – it seems like we just got done with the last Super Bowl. But I was pretty badly depressed for the first couple of months of this year, and the rest of the world just kept on going by without me while I “hibernated.” :( It almost feels like I got “resurrected” around Easter time, :blob5: but I don’t know how long it will last this time around. I never do.

The guys who worked in the warehouse at one of the places where I worked (the best job I ever had, lasted 11 years before I burned out and had to quit) used to play football on their lunch break, and the office folks, including me, would watch them out the windows. The shop foreman usually got to be the quarterback, of course.

Sounds like Broly is still suffering from a bad case of hormones. If so, you can be happy that you have a nice normal healthy adult male beardie. And you get to put up with the craziness in the meantime. :mrgreen:

Oreo is getting old? It seems to me like you just got her maybe a few months ago? I must have lost track of time again. Anyway, I’m glad the enzymes help.

Gee, maybe a guitar isn’t the right instrument for a bipolar person after all. I’d quit playing when I get real depressed and then I’d be breaking in a new set of calluses every time I come out of it and start playing again. I’d have to try real hard to learn that “guitar-playing-as-coping-strategy” thing. So far, the new guitar store in Anchorage is still no more than a “coming soon” sign at one end of the local shopping mall.

Puff is doing his usual midday napping – I posted more details about him on my other thread. I hope he’s not getting too serious about trying to actually brumate for the first time in his life, but we’ll cross that bridge if and when we come to it. So far, he’s still eating and pooping (although a little less than what we’d gotten used to in the last few months) and not showing any other obvious signs of illness except for the lump in his wrist that thankfully turned out not to be cancer – so far so good. :)

It was real hard starting out for me too. Depression took me down and I would stop playing as well. Every time I started up I would need new calluses to keep my fingers from hurting. It was hard but I learned to not let it take me down because the soreness of the fingers sucked. Sometimes it can't be helped you stop playing (leaving town or sick). My mom said "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger." I learned to live by that. Depression did not kill me though I had thought of it in my teens mostly when I was 15, 16 yrs old. I had knives and scissors I then looked to guitars. I picked my (now 10 yr old) guitar and didn't stop trying to learn a song unless it was absolutely necessary. I didn't start actually playing till I was 21 yrs old.

Broly is still going strong with the running and between gaining 1 to no grams. He isn't trending endlessly downward in weight. He eats, craps and runs daily.

Oreo we got April 2018. I was told she was 5-6 mos old then which does make her 1 yr and a half. Idk how right that estimate of her age is but she is dull in color. She waddles (like my last hamster, Ash did at that age) when she walks and Tom has already checked her out through a physical. Fecal test came out negative her weight isn't bad and appears in good health. Eyes and ears are clear too. We let her do what she wants. She is sleeping more than she used to and since she isn't sick she's old. She'll wake up, eat, drink and use the bathroom. She'll run her wheel and runabout ball and she loves our attention and we give her as much as we can.

I have to take an anti fungal because my athlete's foot was caused by toenail fungus. I let my toenails go infected too long (I had no idea I read yellow and crumbling nails is a sign). Im taking milk thistle since the pill Im taking can mess with my liver though I have no existing or active liver problems. It's a two week round of pills and it's messing with my period. It either will not come during my treatment or become irregular during this time. It was coming but stopped before it was going to start up. I have no idea why.

It seems my uvb fixture for my t5 arcadia is acting up so it's getting old I guess. I have to talk to my sister (she has amazon prime) and ask if she can get two day shipping on it. Luckily it's happening as it's warming up as opposed to last time where it was cooling off and no sun. I will have to get Kane in the sun and might as well change Broly's uvb fixture too because if his goes out MBD immediately starts up. Broly's prone to MBD starting almost immediately if no uvb exposure due to either light or sun. Remember he's inbred, so it's easy for his MBD problem to arise quickly even if you did a good job up till now.

I saw Detective Pikachu and omg it was cute that's about all it had going for it. My nephew (he's 8 yrs old) loved it because he likes Pokémon. He's going to drag me to see Pokémon the first movie remake all that CGI glory LOL. Lucky for him my favorite is always Mewtwo. I know there's others that are tougher than him but he remains my favorite since the original 1999 animated version.
