Going to the surgeon who did my knee and having him verify that I hadn't done anything terrible to the knee when I fell over a month ago. :) Although it still hurts much more than it did before the fall, and I wasn't thrilled with the possibility that it could be a bone bruise which takes forever to heal, nothing in the knee replacement had shaken loose. Now if the eye doctor I see on Friday has a similar kind of ability to do something minor about my glasses (the black eyes are almost gone), I'll be a happy camper.

Finally, I think we may have discovered the cause of the blood sugar problems (which had a major impact on why I fell). It seems I may have started to get nasty side effects from the glipizide (oral diabetic med I have taken for years). That could well explain the sudden gain of 10 lbs. in 1 week and some other indications. :pray: that nothing else goes wrong for me or for Tony and that he can get over here soon--if not by Nov. 1st as I'd hoped.

I had that on my Christmas list for last year, but Santa said "HOW MUCH!" :lol:

I know VW geeks on VW forums who have bought that, then spent ages building it in to a number of different customised designs :shock: I haven't got the spare time and when I have the real camper is usually demanding some work to be done. :roll: :lol:

Love the line

Many of our boys have jobs that keep them working at night. And if we have a game the following morning, they can't have a real presence on the pitch. ... They need more help."


I thought it was the sponsors who were mainly working at night ;)
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

This made me smile too! :D

The other thing that made me smile was getting back from a walk to the shops and finding a lovely card and a copy of Robert Heinlein's 'Starship Troopers' that Sharlene has sent me. :D

That's solved what I'm going to read now that I've finished the latest Bernard Cornwell book.

Sharlene so glad your knee is ok!! Hope it's not sore for much longer and I hope you can work with the doctors on your eye/medication changes.

Yeah, the Lego sets aren't exactly inexpensive are they? :lol: I want this one in the worst way.

I got a question right on Only Connect (BBC four, I think, quiz show), because of Good Omens! :lol: It was a list of famous misprints in the Bible (eg Thou shalt commit adultery). Mr Dotsie briefly thought I was a genius :roll:

I think you're one too, Only Connect must be one of the hardest quizzes on tv at the moment. :D

I'm dying to get a job as one of the people that figures out how to build the toys/sets. I could spend hours with some photos of the Milennium Falcon or some LOTR set figuring out the best way to make it. What a gig!

They must make huge bucks because what's in the box is just a few ounces of plastic.
