|I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THAT THING IS HANGING ON THE BACK OF THIS FARMER'S TRACTOR|
Home again I puttered around outside for a bit. Then the phone rang and it was the Maitland Valley Medical Center with the results of my X-rays this morning. Seems a suspected spot in my lower back has been diagnosed as severe degenerative disc disease at the L3 location. Oh Geeezzzz what next!! Kelly looked it up on the internet and it said this is usually associated with lower back pain but luckily I have not had any lower back pain. Well not yet anyway. I had bad lower back pain problems years ago but nothing in the last decade and a half. So it kinda looks like after all these years of reasonably good health I am suddenly beginning to fall apart. First the prostate cancer diagnosis, then the emergency removal of two of three kidney stones. And now they tell me I have a severe degenerative disc disease. Well I've also heard it said that things sometimes come in threes so hopefully that is my three and I can relax now. Ya'think!!
|BLUE MOON IN THE MORNING SKY|
Pheebs and I took the Freedo Vandito for a drive this afternoon. Slipped around part of the same southern Bayfield route we had slipped around this morning in the Jeep. I really like the feel of driving a sure footed nimble van again and I'm more convinced than ever a smaller RV is the way for us to go right now although just a 'wee bit' bigger would be alright too.

"Are you writing a thank you letter to Grandma like I told you to?" "Yes, Mom." "Your handwriting seems very large, why is that?" "Well, Grandma can't hear well, so I'm writing very loudly."
