One of the followers of this blog (hi, Laura) says she keeps up on my health this way.  Okay, here is the latest:  Right knee - considerably better, but a bit twingy every now and then.  The prescribed exercises seem to be working.

Left hip - pain almost all gone; easier to sleep at night.

Cough - cough, cough, cough, cough, despite the medications prescribed by the pulmonologist.  Aacckk!

Weatherwise, we’re finally getting something like spring.  I was out on the scooter Sunday afternoon, and basked in the sunshine.

And then the forecast for today is showers.  Oh, yeah, "When April showers... la la la"

Our park managers like a bit of whimsy.  You’d think Easter was coming, or something.  Have a look.

Humor -

And speaking of Easter, and whimsy, try this one on for size --

A man is driving along a highway and sees a rabbit jump out across the middle of the road.  He swerves to avoid hitting it, but unfortunately the rabbit jumps right in front of the car.

The driver, a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulls over and gets out to see what has become of the rabbit.  Much to his dismay, the rabbit is the Easter Bunny, and he is DEAD.  The driver feels so awful that he begins to cry.

A young woman driving down the highway sees the man crying on the side of the road and pulls over.  She steps out of the car and asks the man what's wrong.

"I feel terrible,"! he explains, "I accidentally hit the Easter Bunny with my car and KILLED HIM."

The young woman says,"Don't worry." She runs to her car and pulls out a spray can.  She walks over to the limp, dead  Easter Bunny, bends down, and sprays the contents onto him.

The  Easter Bunny  jumps up, waves its paw at the two of them and hops off down the road.

Ten feet away he stops, turns around and waves again; he hops down the road another 10 feet, turns and waves, hops another ten feet, turns and waves, and repeats this again and again and again and again, until he hops out of sight.

The man is astonished. He runs over to the woman and demands, "What is in that can?  What did you spray on the Easter Bunny ?"

The woman turns the can around so that the man can read the label.   It says..
"Hair Spray. Restores life to dead hair, and adds permanent wave."


  1. I told you the cough is going to last for several weeks, didn't I? Why you no listen?

  2. Glad that you are feeling somewhat better, but that cough...what can we do?! Don't get discouraged - healing takes time...

  3. I was so not expecting that punchline. Well done!

  4. That was a real groaner!
    Weatherwise, we had 3 inches of snow that stuck most of the day yesterday. yuck
