I'm half hoping it's just the cold affecting the arthritis. <BR> I might check with the surgery later if the pain doesn't ease off.

She found the ideal spot on the roof of her hotel. It was deserted and secluded, with a smooth, raised "deck" which received the sun all day long. <BR> <BR> She wore a bathing suit on the first day, but on the second, she decided that since no one could see her way up there that she would slip out of it and get rid of the tan lines on her back. <BR> <BR> She'd been lying there on her stomach ...
