nice sunny day,,
Since I can never sit still, I was doing too much post surgery, pain is awful, so after getting read the riot act at docs office and by DD, I called my cousin JOhn, ,, we had our surgeries 30 minutes apart by the same surgeon. I asked him if he was still having pain,etc..
When I called, Brenda, his wife, answered. I asked her how John was doing. The very first thing out of her mouth was, "HE won't sit still, is always doing things he is not supposed to be doing!"
It was word for word what DD said about me to others!!
Turns out, he has exactly the same issues I do,, more-than-anticipated pain, needing stronger pain pills,itchy-pants syndrome(unable to sit still doing nothing). His thing is hanging wooden shelving, cleaning out his garage, helping with housework!!
NOw I feel better knowing I am not a whiny baby about this stuff!!
The Bavarian Inn in Frankenmuth,MI, which you can google, is a large restaurant, hotel, gift shops, bakery,etc in Mid Michigan.. There is a large Glockenspiel (pronounced Glock-N-shpeel) on the outside wall of the building. LIfe sized characters go around the clock with music and telling a story, a 20 minute program. I believe it is the only one of its' kind in the U.S.
