In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

When I Push Too Hard

About a month ago, while helping move a bed for in-laws, I managed to injure my elbow. At first, it just felt like a strain, so I didn't pay much attention to it, until it lasted. It finally reached the point where the pain is either like a toothache, or sharp, when I grab something the wrong way.  

I go to a specialist next Friday for a consultation. Whatever it is, I have a feeling some rest and a few over the counter pain meds are not going to be the solution. 

Getting old isn't for sissies. 


  1. Most likely a form of tendinitis....which takes forever to heal, especially if you keep using the arm. A stress fracture is not impossible but in the elbow is very rare.

    1. I'll find out eventually. This one sorta blindsided me. I've pulled things in the past, but youth allowed me to shake it off and wait for it to go away.
