Hi, remember me?

It's been a few weeks since posting; still not getting any better at it, I'm afraid. The last couple of weeks we have had intermittent rain, and as a consequence I have been laid up with constant sciatica and muscle spasms. Makes for poor sleeping, and when I do get any energy it is put into housework and yardwork during the brief times when the pain abates.
I had some major yardwork done a few days ago; two of my trees in front needed pruned badly, and I also had a large pine removed from the front yard.


Looks like the economy is still circling the drain; between the idiots in the Whitehouse, and the ones in Congress and the Senate, I think we are in for a rough time in the next few years.


Time for the yearly trip to the arts festival; we like going up in the late morning, and have lunch at Wasatch Brewery; they have good brew and great beer-battered fish and chips.
I'll probably have to take my cane (have used one at times for several years now) and walk slow, but I enjoy getting up there anyway.
About time to go pick a few tomatoes and then spend some time with a heating pad on my back. Hope to get back sooner with my next post.


A few oldies in this bunch. Any favorites?

"Sultans of Swing" by Dire Straits
"Hot Rod Lincoln" by Commander Cody
"Soapstone Mountain" by It's A Beautiful Day
"Summertime Blues" by Blue Cheer

The definitive version of Foxy Lady included Garth from Wayne's World. Just sayin'.

I have been having some back and neck pain this week and it's bad today. Too much time hunched over a computer at work, I think. And I was feeling so sorry for myself until I realized others, like you, live with it on a chronic basis. At least I know mine will ease up and isn't aggravated by the weather.

Enjoy the Arts Festival!

Nice t see you blog again. Is it the humidity that causes your sciatica to flare up?

BobG said...

Borepatch: I never was a big fan of Wayne's World, I'm afraid.

Kenny: the same for you; it's nasty, isn't it?

Terri: it could be worse; I have a couple of acquaintances with rheumatoid arthritis, and I can't even imagine what they go through every day.

Comrade Misfit: humidity doesn't affect it at all. In my case the main culprit is air pressure change, which happens quite a bit around rain and thunder storms.
