Jumping Back Into LifeLong Learning in Retirement
The past couple of days I've been looking online at various backpacks and totes. That's right folks, I said backpacks!  I've looked at the used market, at pretty Vera Bradley totes at briefcases and more.  I've even contemplated making something myself.  Wh...

Exercise, Oh, Exercise!!
My knees are much better today. It seems that my cortisone shot also included pain medication and so that made the injections much more tolerable.  This means according to my doctor that I can start moving again-or get back on the exercise treadmill as he w...

A Few Things I Miss About Texas-and A Couple I Don't Miss

Taking The Next Step in Pain Management for Arthritis/Fibromyalgia-Medical Marijuana
By now, most regular readers know that I have pretty bad arthritis in my knees.  Six years of old style army physical fitness (running in combat boots on the tarmac) will do that to ya.  Add the sports of my younger years, and a severe post widow hood weigh...

This Weekend In Retirement
Once a month on Friday morning I meet for one of my two book groups. We are blessed to have a really good independent bookstore in the immediate area, and this grouping in front of the fireplace is where we meet weekly for knitting and drinks as well as for...

About Those Knees................
 Note that while this post is about knee health, no knee photos are included. Discretion being the better part of valor, I deliberately avoided photos of elevated, chubby, bruised knees with iodine stains-hopefully to the benefit of all.  It's a beautiful M...

Me And the Dog (s) - On The Road
This morning, I had a sudden revelation. From 1996 until now I have always had dogs, and almost all the time I have had two dogs.  I had a break between the death of my beagle and lab for about a year, and then since January I have again only had one pet. T...

Very professional and easy to work with. Fernando was very unobtrusive but took piles of wonderful pictures. Some of the pictures were truly amazing and the photos came back very quickly! A delight to work with and we loved pictures. A wonderful job and I would definitely hire Fernando again! Thanks so much! 21:17 May 20, 2014
