Getting Older

I must be getting older because I had knee surgery a year ago and still have pain in it. My mobility has gotten so bad I stagger all over and need a cane for support. The other day I got a new walker with wheels and brakes. It also has a seat to sit and rest when I get tired which is often because my lungs are shot. Years of smoking and hauling high dust truckloads and breathing the dust has left me with 25% of my lungs. They call these the golden years and now I know, that if you have a bunch of gold then they're a whole lot better.

Terrible Agent

Thanks for the guest post by Esteban Vinson

There’s nothing like the stress of finding a new home but boy when you’re working with a real estate agent like ours you’ll learn a whole new dimension in getting stressed! Cathy seemed great at the beginning but the more time we spent with her the worse things were…she was always late to all the appointments we set up and she hardly ever answered her phone. She would call us an hour before we were supposed to go out house hunting and say she couldn’t make it! We finally did find a property all on our own and we kicked Cathy to the curb. Now all we’ve got to worry about is things like and waiting for the cable guy which is fine by me since there’s no way I’m ever going to work with a realtor again! I know that sounds harsh but Cathy really just left a bad taste in my mouth and I’m sure it will take me a while to get over how she treated my husband and I.

Mowing Grass

I usually have a job mowing grass for my friend every week. It's been so hot and dry the grass just isn't growing like it should. This is the only way I can earn a few dollars to help with my nessessities being on limited disability Social Security. The government gave themselves a cost of living raise every year. When it comes to us that live on S.S. as our only support we could really use a raise. We haven't had one for 3 years but the congressmen that earn over $100,000 plus a year always get one, GO FIGURE. I guess they have a rule that if you're old you go to the end of the line. If they would put back the money they robbed from S.S. then S.S. would be good and healthy.

Beautiful Weather

At last we are having beautiful weather. The sky is blue with no clouds. The temperature is 70. It has been great to have the windows open and get some fresh air in. It has also been nice to go outside and be able to breathe because the humidity is way down. I love this kind of weather. I wish we could have it all the time.

More Tests

I had knee surgery to replace a bad knee and it's been almost a year now. Ever since the surgery my voice has gotten weaker and raspy to the point people can't hear me sometimes or can't understand me. I hate not being able to carry on a conversation with my friends. So tomorrow I'll go in to throat specialist and see why I can't talk out loud. The doctor said it might be mental problem too. So the neurologist will be the next stop. If I get that far maybe they can figure out why my new knee is still giving me pain and my mobility is bad too. I guess we start tomorrow and go from there to see what happens.
