It was exciting. My first solo trip to the market and not using the electric cart. Did well. In the evening took my son to visit his friend for dinner. They live in a raised ranch. All was well until about halfway up the drive there was a twinge... Read more

After being ill practically all winter long, my energy and stamina are zilch. I want to improve, not have a setback. I'm tired of having to sleep in the recliner. I'm tired of having to rest to catch my breath after 10 steps. The elephant has go... Read more

Monday, December 19, 2016      7 comments

It is time that I update my Sparkpage. I stated the best is yet to come. Over all it was a good decade, however.... I am disappointed in my lack of progress, in fact over the last year I have gained about 20 pounds. Sure I can offer up excuses.... Read more

Argh!!!! The antibiotics mostly worked, still have a pocket about the size of a large marble at the back of my jaw. So another call to the dentist is warranted. Mother's Day was fine. Wonderful would have been the descriptor if I didn't ... Read more

All went well though I do look like a chipmunk prepping for winter on one side of my face. That puffy cheek has removed wrinkles too. Now what to do about the other side of my face, hmmmm. Novocaine is wonderful and I didn't feel a thing du... Read more

I'm not liking 2016 very much. Even though I had a wonderful visit with the Grands, my back went into spasm and said it was time to go home. Never realized how bumpy I-90 is until you are in pain. It is amazing what we take for granted, be... Read more
