Long, Long Ago . . . . .

. . . I posted on a regular basis.  I hope I'll return to posting at least once a week.  There's just never much to write about.  Well, nothing exciting, that is.

News from the home front:  The grandsons are growing like weeds.  The oldest is now taller than me and the younger is not far behind.  All local adults are doing fine.  As for the Surprise, AZ,  daughter and her family and the Antigo, WI,  son and his family, we miss them more than a lot.  They all seem to be doing well.  Bring the family and come on home anytime, kids.

I have been in physical therapy for almost three months.  The time I was not moving around much and the meds I was taking really worked me over.  I can't tell you how much better I am.  I'm still using a decompression brace on my right leg several hours a day.  It would be a non-issue if I could sleep in it.  Some folks can but not me.  I'm not complaining.  I'm just happy to have the opportunity to try  improving myself even more.

Did you ever wake up and think you were in a whole new universe?  Did you ever try to explain a simple situation to a service representative and end up feeling like a confused fool?  Sometimes I wonder where some of those folks come from.  I know there are many really competant customer reps out there and once in a while I reach one.  It didn't happen when I contacted a company to let them know that they mis-filled my order.  It's too complicated to write but bottom line is after three rounds of shipping and returning the order still isn't correct.  It has become a joke at our house.  We're just waiting to see what the next shipment brings.  Hope springs eternal.

I read blogs every morning and look forward to hearing what's happening in everyone's life.  Sending my best to all.
