Yes! Menthol, Camphor, and Capsicum. I was looking for something else, and found the Tiger Balm Patch. Instead of having to take Tylenol or 1/2 of a pain pill, I found a happy alternative. Currently, I'm feeling a Lot better! It doesn't take ... Read more

I am not one to just take medication for just any little ache or pain. I believe in being cautious with medications, read the warnings and side effects, etc. I credit that with Dad being an M.D. and Mom being an R.N. However, that being sai... Read more

Late morning and early afternoon was quite strange. Usually I hear traffic, trash trucks, dogs, insects, birds . . . but there was barely any noise. The air was mostly quiet, barely any breeze at all. It did pick up later in the afternoon and ea... Read more

Yep. I haven't been feeling very well over the last 10 days . . . stomach issues. 'Nuff said. Yesterday was busy. And today . . . my son came over to take out the trash for me. I can't get down the steps just yet, or pull the big trash can ... Read more
Better and Thinking.
Tuesday, August 08, 2017      2 comments

I'm feeling better. I still have a way to go yet, and very happy that I feel as well as I do. The only thing guaranteed in life is change. If we don't change, life has a habit of doing it for us! Ever watch Pit Bulls & Parolees? A few ye... Read more

I have a tendency to overthink something until, as my sweetie says, it turns to Cheez Wiz. I had to make a request of someone today to help me out because of my physical limitations, and I felt Very Guilty. I knew it was necessary, but it also... Read more

I put on the cable tv music Oldies channel. I wanted to do a Morning Stretch, and it turned into some chair exercises. "My love is warmer than the warmest sundjine . . ." I love my music! Unfortunately, my leg did Not! I haven't been in Tha... Read more

Today we had a thunderstorm with high wind, hail, and straight down rain. Usually I'm pretty good with thunderstorms, but tonight I jumped when I heard the thunder because it was so close! We're supposed to have two more days of thunderstorms, t... Read more

Today was a very quiet day, and I avoided thinking about some problems that have been bothering me for a while. Instead, I chose to do rather than to do nothng. Tomorrow will be another very quiet day. I've been told that I think too much, tha... Read more
Catching up.
Monday, July 31, 2017      4 comments

Tonight I'm sitting back and catching up on some back programs that I've wanted to see for a long time. I suppose I should like them more than I do. Forced inactivity is frustrating. As I was reminded today, sometimes it's necessary to take ... Read more
