    OUCH!!!! That Hurt

    So yesterday, I think, "I'll just move those big rocks from the garden" No big deal, until I try to pick one up that was heavier than I thought!

    I actually heard my bicep rip!! I think most people in the village heard me scream and I bet they didn't know I knew language like that. Now I am one armed, can't use my right arm at all and the hospital say it'll take around 6 weeks to heal. Great when I am going to my sons wedding in America in 3 weeks. Hope my wife can manage my luggage too!

    You did that on purpose so you won't have to carry the bags.

    "Ouch" I hope you recover quickly and you feel better soon.

    Here's a thought in case the Mrs. isn't able to carry all the luggage.

    Luggage on wheels

    Congratulations on your son getting married and Best Wishes for the Bride and Groom. I do hope your trip to America is enjoyable and turns out to be an awesome vacation for you and the Mrs.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    Uh, we ain't as young as we used to be, but you probably realize that now, huh?

    A few years ago, I picked a small pebble and threw it at a cat that was about to snatch a bird in my yard. Next I was on my knees in horrible shoulder pain. For the next 6 months, I could raise my right arm above more than about 10" from my ribs.

    What was really bad was the Dr wanted to do a cat-scan, but the tech said I needed to put my arms above my head. I ended up just walking out and letting it heal on it's own. I never did figure out what actually happened, but I don't throw stuff hard like that anymore!

    Take it easy and invite the kids over to help next time!

    Fraid so!! Never realised how difficult it is using the 'wrong' hand!

    Still on the plus side the Doc told me to take painkillers. Malt whisky is a painkiller, right?

    I bet the sound of it ripping hurt as bad as the pain!!! If it was just the muscle, hopefully it should heal back fine.

    In High School, I tore a knee up running away from a stupid water sprinkler, and it still isn't fixed... Twisted & tore stuff when I flipped around and fell on it funny. And I was in good shape then.

    That was much worse than the hip dislocations in Elementary school that only required pins & I was back like new. I probably paid for some orthopedic's dream vacations.

    Just remember the older you are the longer it takes to heal. It's been very hot here and the bedrooms are upstairs so I decided to sleep down stairs (did I mention I sleep walk and usually just wander around the bedroom). I woke up in pain on the floor and found I had stepped on one of the puppie's toys and fallen. I have bruises on my arms, legs and backside to the point it looks like I was beaten. Boyfriend bought me two fans for my bedroom and says he's not coming over until I heal. Chicken.
