good (and bad) for me

Friday, I went to an orthopedist to see why my hip and knee on the right side are beginning to give me worse pain and more frequently. I assumed that, since the original problem fifteen years ago had been walking to favor an injury in my back, that I now had arthritis in the hip and knee as well. I don’t! What I do have is bursitis. I will be looking that up later today to be entirely sure what it is. So, I should lose weight (I am already on that) and do exercises that will stretch and strengthen those body parts. I go back in six weeks and hope to report some success.~TSG

time to party

Tonight, my parents, siblings and a few friends are joining my family at Babbin’s, a local seafood restaurant. There will be fun, fellowship and alligator appetizers for the adventurous among us. No, it does not “taste just like chicken”. Afterwards, we will be going to my parent’s house for cake. The only ones missing will be RTA and MFA, who live too far away to come (insert frowny face here). I told FMP that this all sounded a bit expensive and he asked me if I intended to turn 50 again. Since I don’t, I had to concede his point. On with the festivities!!

i made it, so there!

Despite my upper original equipment’s trying to kill me at 39 and my lower original equipment’s trying to kill me at 47, I have reached the auspicious age of 50. My beautiful, belov├ęd cousin, Kelly, was taken by a form of the first disease that tried to make off with me before she could reach this milestone. In thankfulness to God and in memory of her, I intend to have a very good year for my 50th. This will not bring her back, but I hope God will let her know that I remember her with love.~TSK
