Ordinarily WE do it…but when the pipe in question is the house water supply, connected to the city water supply, in our basement—we call the guys with the really big pipe wrenches and the knowledge.
300.00 later we have a new 5 dollar part installed: a ‘bleeder valve’ on our house water line, just before [...]
I swear ultrasound has side effects. I just fairly well collapsed when I got home. Due to that or the fact our sky is going that peculiar shade of not quite a color but verging on brown that indicates Idaho is burning.
I think I’m going to spray some Lysol about and see if that [...]
After breakfast at the waffles place….
I knew I couldn’t go the hike around Costco, so I asked, and indeed there are wheelchairs for loan, so I got one, persuaded Jane I’d be the shopping cart if she’d push, and we whirled around Costco at a speed at which I began to protest whiplash– But [...]
She likes it. I’m picking up a flavor that makes me want to down it fast. But…if it’s a good, healthy way to remember the damn vitamins, that’s a good thing. Ook. I drank it before coffee. Now I want a lot of coffee. One thing I don’t think this stuff has is caffeine. Maybe [...]
The knee is fevered.. I think I’m going to give them a call tomorrow and see what they think. Improved but still painful. At least I haven’t had to take Advil today. Hurts, but doesn’t hurt awfully.
Last night was the pits. I’ve had bursitis and broken bones, and I would say the pain level on this one is about that of the broken arm. Kinda gets to you. Last night I opened the spice cabinet, got caught in a cascade of bottles, stepped back, and yes, that hurt. I kept trying [...]
I was so full of painkillers yesterday I didn’t note the date. Maybe tonight, weather depending.
I tell you, painkillers for a few days and the mail just keeps coming. I think I have it all handled.
Disappointed this morning that the knee’s still touchy. Had to start the day with Advil, and I don’t like to write when I have anything in my system. Bummer!
We went out and looked [...]
Today I’m down to one Advil, being cautious, but not having pain. I was clear-headed enough to actually gather up my notes and write the opening paragraphs of the next book.
I ought to get out there and wash out some pond filters–but that might be pushing it.
Way better than Sunday, I’ll tell you!
What I managed to do is aggravate the knee mightily…first annoyed it in one direction, in a mistep, then the other, in a subsequent near fall two days later, and x-rays are duly taken and made clear. Probably a good thing I got rid of the old Reebok sandals that allowed the ankle to pitch [...]
