Popeye was in the accident on July 3, 2011.
His father rescued him from Satan’s Mistress on August 20, 2011 He had a few bird baths, but honestly friends, he was beginning to smell. I couldn’t figure out how the hell he was going to be able to get a decent shower considering the cast on his leg and the pain he was in.
On Friday night, I went to the local drug store and purchased this bath chair for $47.99.
The next morning I got the smart idea to go out and buy one of those cheap white resin chairs from Home Depot for $7.99. I returned the expensive bath chair to the pharmacy and brought home the cheap chair.
I put a huge trash bag on Popeye’s leg and then wrapped a big rubber band around the cast to seal it. Popeye got into the shower with his leg hanging out and sat on the chair – (don’t ask me how, I wasn’t allowed in the bathroom).
After about 15 minutes, he emerged from the bathroom as fresh as a daisy. I asked how the chair worked out and he said that at first it worked great, but then the warmth of the water softened the plastic and eventually the legs started to spread!!! He must have looked like a dog on ice!!
Well, I realized the damn plastic chair wasn’t going to work out and figured I would have to use that damn expensive chair from the pharmacy! Yesterday I was sitting at my desk reading the local news and saw that the nursing home around the corner was having a summer sale at their thrift shop. At lunch time I ran over there and was able to buy this bath chair for $7.00!! I brought it home, scrubbed and bleached the hell out of it and now it’s ready for his next bath!
I just love a good bargain!
