I didn't see the slant and slight dip in the sidewalk and I fell. It isn't really anybody else's fault, just a clumsy accident. How I avoided a head or face injury, I don't know. My hat flew off my head, my glasses slid down my nose, my left ... Read more

Hubby likes to have company when he runs errands, so I decoded to go with him today. We drove my car instead of his work van, so I would be more comfortable. We were able to use my new windshield wipers as it rained intermittently all the way ... Read more

Yesterday, my primary said that I should go to the orthopedic urgent care and get a steroid shot in my hip. Hubby was afraid that if the pain was severe, I would have trouble driving the 120 round trip miles by myself. His Friday afternoon cli... Read more
