Well, I seem to be coming along -- s l o w l y. My chiropractor came to the conclusion that currently the pain in my right leg is due to a tightening of the thigh muscle. He suggested I use my massager on the sore spots, and that does seem to reduce the pain, if not eliminate it. I’m still not able to stand up from a sitting position, and son Cliff does an admirable job of lifting me. Once I’m on my feet, and be sure of my balance, I can move slowly, but surely, in a straight line. Making turns are a bit tricky, but doable.



A woman walks into the kitchen to find her husband stalking around with a fly swatter.
"What are you doing?" She asks.
"Hunting Flies"

"Killing any?"
"Yep, 3 males, 2 Females."
"How can you tell?"
"Three were on a beer can; two were on the phone."


  1. Practice turning. That massager sounds sweet. I carried in 4x30l bags of cat litter, a similar sized bag of dog food, made two station wagon-filled trips first to a charity shop and then the dump, cleaned my garage and now I'm exhausted. Still more laundry.... You practice turning, my friend. Earn your massage.

  2. BTW, I hope I didn't sound too dictatorial. It isn't the accomplishment, just the repeated effort and attempts. Little and often.

  3. Good job! Keep working at it. Thanks for the funny. I needed that today.
