Dear Codger's,

I (Randy Martin) have been using a cream/gel anti inflaitory that has been working great for me (I use is on my knee, neck, back, muscles)...  I have been giving it out one person at a time (it seems to be working for the guy's I've gave it to them).  I've decided to just put it on the web site for all.

Here is the info on the anti inflammatory cream I was telling you about.  You must get a script from your Dr. for them.  

Phamacy Innovation

2936 West 17th St. Erie, PA 16505


Call the pharmcist there!.  If you would and you get to talk to him, let him know that you got this info from me. He will work with your Dr. t get him the info on the script below.


The compound below is what I call the Hi Test  of anti-inflamatory cream/muscle relaxer/nerve pain. This one  works the best for me!!! 

 Here is a description of the ingredients in the Hi Test gel above.

 Ketoprofen – non steroid anti inflammatory

 Balclofen – muscle relaxer

 Gabapentin – nerve pain med.

Transdermal Gels for Pain,  PLO - Pluronic Lecithin Organogels are used for transdermal delivery of various medications. Medications most commonly used are anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxers, nerve blockers, local anesthetics, hormones and anti-emetics.

When using anti-inflammatories, PLO's deliver a high concentration of the drug to the desired site. Studies have shown up to 100 times higher NSAID synovial fluid concentrations when compared to NSAID blood levels. It allows for quick onset of action, three to five minutes, while bypassing the gastrointestinal tract for those patients at risk of the side effects most commonly seen using oral anti-inflammatories

Yo Everybody,


This is an encouragement to visit (if you haven't already) the new ARUNDEL Cellars and Brewing Company (in North East), run by longtime friends Marc and Lauri Boettcher.


Those who play in my softball league will remember that not too many years ago Marc tackled and survived a bone marrow transplant.  This little jaunt included 110 days in a hospital.   He and Lauri have been longtime wine makers.  They are remarkable people.  Already their ARUNDEL products have won national recognition.  They have now invested in the complete restoration and modification of an old barn in North East right along Route 20.  It's magnificent.  Not long ago the winery opened, and soon they will brew beer there also.


So I'm encouraging all of us who like good wine, and who can attract new visitors, talk up Arundel.  I'm not a member of the staff...just a support.


Here's the address:  11727 East Main Road, North East.  Phone is 814 725-1079.

Math Question














A male flight attendant walks into a bar and takes a seat next to a very attractive woman. He gives her a quick glance then casually looks at his watch for a moment.

The woman notices this and asks, "Is your date running late?"




No," he replies, "I just got this state-of-the-art watch, and I was just testing it."




The intrigued woman says, "A state-of-the-art watch? What's so special about it?"

The flight attendant says, "It uses alpha waves to talk to me telepathically."




The lady says, "What's it telling you now?"




Well, it says you're not wearing any panties."




The woman giggles and replies, "Well it must be broken because I am wearing panties!

The flight attendant smirks, taps his watch and says, "Damn thing's an hour fast."




And that my friends ... is Confidence.






I thought of you!


After a long day on the golf course, me and a couple of my friends stopped in at
‘Hooter ' s’ for some hot Wings and drinks.
After being there for a while, one of my friends asked me which waitress I would
like to be stuck in an elevator with.
I told them "The one who knows how to fix elevators."
I ' m old, tired, and pee a lot.




 For all of you growing old !!!!

Welcome to being born before 1970.

The New Alphabet

New Alphabet :


A is for apple, and B is for boat, That used to be right, but now it won't float! Age before beauty is what we once said, But let's be a bit more realistic instead.
Now The Alphabet:

 A's for arthritis;
B's the bad back,
C's the chest pains, perhaps car-di-ac?
D is for dental decay and decline,
E is for eyesight, can't read that top line!
F is for farting and fluid retention,
G is for gut droop, which I'd rather not mention.
H high blood pressure--I'd rather it low;
I for incisions with scars you can show.
J is for joints, out of socket, won't mend,
K is for knees that crack when they bend.
L's for libido, what happened to sex?
M is for memory, I forget what comes next.
N is neuralgia, in nerves way down low;
O is for osteo, bones that don't grow!
P for prescriptions, I have quite a few, just give me a pill and I'll be good as new!
Q is for queasy, is it fatal or flu?
R is for reflux, one meal turns to two.
S is for sleepless nights, counting my fears,
T is for Tinnitus; bells in my ears!
U is for urinary; troubles with flow;
V for vertigo, that's 'dizzy,' you know..
W for worry, now what's going 'round?
X is for X ray, and what might be found.
Y for another year I'm left here behind,
Z is for zest I still have-- in my mind!
I've survived all the symptoms, my body's deployed, And I'm keeping twenty-six doctors fully employed!






 Got home real late last night after a full day of softball and hanging out with the guys, and my wife left a messagein the kitchen.


I think she wants me to eat more fruit,
bless her heart!




Sliding Down The Ban..
Little Johnny and Suzy have nothing to do one day while in the house playing. All of a sudden, Johnny gets this great idea. "Let's take turns sliding down the banister rail!" he suggests. 

"Oh no," answers Suzy, "That is way too scary." 

"No, it is not," says Johnny, "it will be fun!" He proceeds to the top of the stairs. The banister rail is long and very smooth with a beautiful big marble ball at its base. Johnny climbs on and down he goes, squealing with excitement as he goes. He jumps off just before he gets to the marble ball at the bottom. "That was great," he says. "Come on, you try now." 

Suzy still is not quite sure that this is such a good idea. "No," she says, "It looks too scary." 

"No, it is not," said Johnny, and away he goes again to the top of the stairs. He climbs on and down he goes again, having just as much fun as he did the first time. He jumps off just before the marble ball at the bottom. "You gotta try this, it is the best!" urges Johnny. 

Well, little Suzy is not one to stay scared for very long and this really does look like fun, so she agrees. To the top of the stairs she goes. She straddles the banister rail, and slowly lets go with her hands. 

Down she goes, a lot faster than she expected. WHAM! Right into the marble ball at the bottom. 

Little Suzy starts to cry and almost falls off the banister rail. 

When Johnny sees her so upset, crying ever harder and holding her groin where she collided with the marble ball, he gets a little scared that maybe she has really hurt herself. 

"Maybe you had better let me see," suggests Little Johnny. 

So Suzy lifts her little dress and pulls down her panties. 

Little Johnny's face goes pale white. "OH, NO!" he shouts. "This is horrible! You knocked it right off!"




A Man’s Age according to Home Depot ! 
You are in the middle of some home projects: putting in a new fence, painting the porch, planting some flowers and fixing a broken door lock.  You are hot and sweaty, covered with dirt, lawn clippings and paint.   You have your old work clothes              on.   You know the outfit -- shorts with a hole in the crotch, an old T-shirt with a stain from who-knows-what, and an old pair of tennis shoes.


Right in the middle of these tasks you realize that you need to run to Home Depot for supplies.


Depending on your age you might do the following: 

In your 20s:
Stop what you are doing.  Shave, take a shower, blow dry your hair, brush your teeth, floss and put on clean clothes. 
Check yourself in the mirror and flex.  Add a dab of your favorite cologne because, you never know, you just might meet some hot chick while standing in the checkout line.


And yes, you went to school with the pretty girl running the register.

In your 30s:
Stop what you are doing, put on clean shorts and shirt. Change your shoes.  You married the hot chick so no need for much else.
Wash your hands and comb your hair.  Check yourself in the mirror.   Still got it!  Add a shot of your favorite cologne to cover the smell. 


The cute girl running the register is the kid sister of someone you went to school with. 

In your 40s:

Stop what you are doing.  Put on a sweatshirt that is long enough to cover the hole in the crotch of your shorts.
Put on different shoes and a hat.  Wash your hands.  Your bottle of Brut is almost empty, so don't waste any of it on a trip to Home Depot.
Check yourself in the mirror and do more sucking in than flexing.

The hot young thing running the register is your daughter's age and you feel weird about thinking she's spicy.

In your 50s:

Stop what you are doing.  Put on a hat.  Wipe the dirt off your hands onto your shirt.   Change shoes because you don't want to get dog crap in your new sports car.  Check yourself in the mirror and swear not to wear that shirt anymore because it makes you look fat.  


The cutie running the register smiles when she sees you coming and you think you still have it.  Then you remember -- the hat you have on is from Bubba's Bait & Beer Bar and it says,  'I Got Worms ' 

In your 60s:

Stop what you are doing.  No need for a hat any more.  Hose the dog crap off your shoes. The mirror was shattered when you were in your 50s.
You hope you have underwear on so nothing hangs out the hole in your pants.


The girl running the register may be cute but you don't have your glasses on, so you're not sure.

In your 70s:

Stop what you are doing.  Wait to go to Home Depot until you call the drug store to have your prescriptions ready for pick too and check your grocery list for a quick stop there.  Got to save trips!  Don't even notice the dog crap on your shoes.


The young thing at the register stares at you and you realize your balls are hanging out the hole in your crotch… who cares.

In your 80s:

Stop what you are doing.  Start again.  Then stop again.  Now you remember you need to go to Home Depot.  You go to Wal-Mart instead.  You went to school with the old lady greeter.


You wander around trying to remember what you are looking for. Then you fart out loud and turn around thinking someone called your name.

In your 90s & beyond:

What's a home deep hoe?   Something for my garden?   Where am I?   Who am I?   Why am I reading this? 
Did I send it?   Did you?   Who farted?



22 Laziest People On This Planet. I Can’t Believe I’ve Never Thought of #11






A father was approached by his small son who told him proudly, "I know what the Bible means!"
His father smiled and  replied, "What do you mean, you 'know' what the Bible means?
The son replied, "I do know!"
"Okay," said his father. "What does the Bible mean?"
"That's easy, Daddy..." the young  boy replied excitedly," It stands for 'Basic Information Before Leaving Earth.' (This one is my  favorite)

There was a very  gracious lady who was mailing an old family Bible  to her brother in another part of the  country.
"Is there anything breakable in here?"  asked the postal clerk.
"Only the Ten Commandments." answered the  lady.

"Somebody has said  there are only two kinds of people in the world. There are those who wake up in the morning and say, "Good morning, Lord," and there are those who wake up in the morning and say, "Good Lord, it's morning."

A minister parked his car in a no-parking zone in a large city because he was short of time and couldn't find a space with a meter.
Then he put a note under the windshield wiper that read: "I have circled  the block 10 times. If I don't park here, I'll miss my appointment. Forgive us our trespasses."
When he returned, he found a citation from a police officer along with this note "I've circled this block for 10 years. If I don't give you a ticket I'll lose my job. Lead us not into temptation."

There  is the story of a pastor who got up one Sunday and  announced to his congregation: "I have good news  and bad news. The good news is, we have enough money to pay for our new building program. The bad  news is, it's still out there in your pockets."

While driving in  Pennsylvania , a family caught up to an Amish carriage. The owner of the  carriage obviously had a sense of humor, because  attached to the back of the carriage was a hand printed sign... "Energy efficient vehicle: Runs on oats and grass. Caution: Do not step in  exhaust."

A Sunday School  teacher began her lesson with a question, "Boys  and girls, what do we know about God?"
A hand  shot up in the air. "He is an artist!" said the  kindergarten boy.
"Really? How do you know?"  the teacher asked.
"You know - Our Father, who does art in Heaven... "

A  minister waited in line to have his car filled  with gas just before a long holiday weekend. The  attendant worked quickly, but there were many cars ahead of him. Finally, the attendant motioned him toward a vacant pump.
"Reverend," said the  young man, "I'm so sorry about the delay. It seems as if everyone waits until the last minute to get  ready for a long trip."
The minister chuckled,  "I know what you mean. It's the same in my business."
People want the  front of the bus, the back of the church, and the center of attention.

Sunday  after church, a Mom asked her very young daughter  what the lesson was about.
The daughter  answered, "Don't be scared, you'll get your  quilt."
Needless to say, the Mom was perplexed.  Later in the day, the pastor stopped by for tea  and the Mom asked him what that morning's Sunday school lesson was about.
He said "Be not  afraid, thy comforter is  coming."

The minister was  preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to  ask the congregation to come up with more money  than they were expecting for repairs to the church  building. Therefore, he was annoyed to find that  the regular organist was sick and a substitute had  been brought in at the last minute. The substitute  wanted to know what to play.
"Here's a copy of  the service," he said impatiently. "But, you'll  have to think of something to play after I make  the announcement about the finances."
During  the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the  roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected and  we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up."
At that moment, the substitute organist played "The Star  Spangled Banner."
And that is how the substitute became the regular  organist!





This is a riot!!!!

You can’t make this stuff up! Takes about 30 seconds…





The Light Turned Yellow




The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.




The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup.




As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer
ordered her to exit her car with her hands up..




He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell.




After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door.  She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.




He said, "I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the 'What Would Jesus Do' bumper sticker, the 'Choose Life' license plate holder, the 'Follow Me to Sunday-School' bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally....I assumed you had stolen the car."
