My Right Heel Hurts! A Lot!

Luba01-15And not only when I walk. Been over a month now and I’m starting to get kinda tired of it. I’m even having to use a cane sometimes! Crap! Yeah, it’s probably Plantar Fasciitis, and, “Plantar fasciitis normally goes away on its own after a few months. Resting and taking over-the-counter pain meds can help reduce swelling and make you more comfortable. But call your doctor about your condition if it doesn’t improve, or if you notice redness or bruising on your heel.” So I may be in this for the long haul. All because I’m Old and Fat!

SWMBO was off work yesterday for a Dental appointment. We had our annual appointment with Ed Jones (but not Ed) early and made a short shopping trip to Safeway. She joined the ladies at church to set up for their quilting thingie tonight. I made us chili-dogs and fries for dinner. Was a nice day.

Today I made a trip to Home Depot in Silverdale for a work light. Got a bright LED one for $40. Stopped for a to-go meal at Mickie D’s and drove home the back way through Seabeck and Duwatto area. Was nice out! Still kinda cool but sunny and really kind of nice.


Dog was glad to see me when I got home! He always is though. Took him for a walk around the back-40 and threw the ball around for him for awhile. He likes it when I bounce it off the roof and he doesn’t quite know where it’ll bounce.

Other than that: Not a whole lot going on. Playing with that PL-380 Shortwave radio I got some time ago. Hooked a wire to the long-wire dipole I have and managed to tune in more programs. Cool!

And that’s really it. SWMBO is home and it’s about this old guy’s bedtime.


Just Not Feeling Like Posting Often Lately

And I don’t know why. Other than being extraordinairly boring, that is.


Dog and I did think we found a “tripwire” in the woods at the head of Mow Lane yesterday! I notified the Sheriff and they checked it out and let me know that someone was just stringing fishing line out there. He asked me if I checked it out to see if it was connected to anything. Way above my paygrade!

Started raining again today and everything is soaked. Really soaked. No real downpours just steady all damned day.


Had a meteorite blow up over Western WaRshington last night. Lots of people saw the flash since it lit up the horizon. Shook some folks around too. Glad it blew up in the air and not on impact! Cool!

Started fixing up the book cases in the library. One of them anyway. Feels nice to get off my ass.


What A Week!

EuerkaSWMBO had been feeling bad over the weekend, and come Monday she called in sick for work. So I took her to Urgent Care at the Naval Hospital. We Spent All Day There! Well, she did. I finally took off to come on home and take care of the Dog. Went back to pick her up, of course, but it was still after 2000 before we got home.

Shes okay. They gave her meds and told her to go on the BRAT diet. (Banana’s, Rice, Apples, Toast.) Tuesday I got her a double order of Chicken Flied Lice at Safeway. She’s on her own for the rest.

Other than that: SSDD. Way more SSDD than one would expect. Some rain. Lots of Cold. Our usual walks; except we’ve added a leg so our walks are now .9 mile. But we do it 3 times a day! And the .22 mile back 40 tour a few times.

I don’t know why, yet, but everytime I take my medicine I feel really crappy after awhile. I mean fall over crappy. I need to talk to my Doc. (If I still have a Doc at the NavHosp, that is.) Sometimes I really feel like I haven’t much longer …


Got new strings for my electric guitar and got those on. Still haven’t actually tuned them though. Ordered a strap; which I’m hoping makes it a bit easier for me to hold on to the thing. YouTube here I come!

Oh, my. That was good. Mixed some of my homemade blackberry jam into some vanilla bean ice cream. Yummy!

Picked SWMBO up and we been home for awhile. Got to watching “This Old House” on the new TV. (ROKU stuff.)

I’m gonna go lay down and read a bit…
