Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Summertime is back. Hot and humid is the foreseeable future in the Midwest.

My week:  My cold is much better and if I could only get rid of a remaining cough and phlegm.  My foot is much better also.  I only took the anti-inflammatory drugs for 4 or 5 days. They mess with my innards and also were probably the cause of some kidney problems a while back. I really felt like I was coming out of this spell of sickness until Thursday night when all of a sudden my left wrist started hurting.  It’s done this before but never this bad.  It was difficult sleeping. I’m pretty sure it’s related to my DJD ( Degenerative Joint Disease). I picked up a wrist brace while out today.  I don’t know if it’s helping much or not. You don’t realize how much you depend on a left wrist especially when you’re left-handed. It’s hard to even pick up a pencil. Showering, shampooing, getting dressed and even typing are difficult.

Who knows if it’ll be hurting tomorrow. My aches and pains are like Christmas morning… I never know what I’ll get next.  And I’m getting as tired of complaining about them as you probably are reading about them.

The week ahead:  Going to dinner with friends Saturday evening. We don’t have any plans for the 4th of July yet.  I’m finishing up a couple of videos for a birthday party and friend and I are throwing next Saturday. 30 years ago we had a 30-40 party and now we’re going to have a 60-70 party.  She’s playing the part of the 60-year-old so that leaves yours truly for the 70 part of the party.  Our birthdays aren’t until later in July but next Saturday was the best date we could come up with.

That’s it from B&P Headquarters in St. Louis. What’s going on in your world?
