Post-Op Ramblings…

I’m feeling much better today, able to move around with a lot less pain. Now to get back into a more “regular” sleep pattern. I’ve been sleeping most days and up most nights for the last few days, throwing off everyone’s daily routine. My posts have been irregular at best, and […]

It takes all kinds

America was once referred to as “The Great American Melting Pot”, something I was reminded every Saturday as a kid.

I lead a fairly active life, more than most, but probably not as active as I should be. My work consists of heavy lifting, bending, twisting, and can you believe it, swimming. My physical health is an important part of my work, so if I […]

I was recently speaking with a family member that now lives alone, and we were talking about how hard the economy was, and how hard it was becoming to make ends meet. They went on to tell me how they barely had enough […]

They call it “fishing” , and not “catching” for a reason….probably to do with my meager skill set, something I’m sure I share with the majority of folks that go fishing.
