Four days until I get my boot off. But sadly, I hurt the extendor tendon in my middle finger today. I'm having the worst luck with this body lately! Does anyone know where I can get a trade in? I'm not looking for a twenty year old supermodel body, but something with a few less miles would be nice. I wake up in the morning and my knee and hip are stiff (motorcycle accident), my shoulder pops (softball), my neck and back ache (a hundred extra pounds). And from what I hear it only gets worse as I get older. I'm not complaining, mind you, this body is the one I lived in and all the injuries and aches are because of that. I could say I sure would like to have a good knee and hip, but that would mean I didn't climb on the back of a bike and I wouldn't trade that for the world. That was how I saw the world. I would have to give back the memory of margueritas on the beach in Mexico as the sun went down over the water, or seeing New England in the fall with it's riotous explosion of colors, or going through the Midwest with nothing around us but miles and miles of wheat waving in the wind. I guess I needed to say all that to remember what I gained from the things I lost.
