Well, lets get it over with -- namely, health report. For me, pretty good, except for two things: (1) A continuing battle with PAD & (2) a broken neck after a fall in July that doesn't seem to want to heal completely, resulting in wearing a collar for 5 going on 6 months (actually it almost isn't that uncomfortable -- note the "almost").
Here's a "collar " story: O.k., you can't take the collar off. And you can't get a haircut with the collar on. So - last haircut in June sometime. Hair grows. So it's now November & we're in the Giant parking lot loading our groceries from the cart into the trunk of the car. My back is to the the street; Mary is facing the street. A friendly guy comes up behind us & says, "Can I help you ladies?" (I thought Mary would never quit laughing!)
When Steve & Jenny & the little girls visited in June, Mary was going up the stairs one at a time (as is her wont) with Teagan & she told her, "I don't move as fast as I used to." Whereupon Teagan replied, "Well, you're not as slow as Grandpa." So, lets take a pictoral look backwards at "The Choice Grandchild Pictures of the Last Two Decades."
