Baby pictures

It is too bad we don't stay cute like our baby pictures.  What a difference 76 years makes. I know I don't look anything like my baby pictures.   This is my older sister and this was taken probably 78 years ago as she is 79 now.  She put it on Facebook and one of her grandchildren put a picture of their 2nd little girl on Facebook too.  The baby looks just like my sister did when she was a baby.  It was amazing.  My sister told me she did it to see if any of the great grandchildren would look like her and the latest one does.  She has 13 great grandchildren and 14 grandchildren.

Is It Just Me Or What?

It seems to me like everything that can go wrong, goes wrong. I had knee replacement surgery 12 years ago and came out of it pain free. Now 10 years later they replaced the other knee but I've have had bad pain for 2 years. When the doctors that did the surgery checked it they said everything is fine. After many tests for a second oppinion from Mayo they said I had a defective replacement and it should be changed. The only thing is I'm on medicare with no supplimental insurance so I'm responseable for the balance. That would mean adding another $3,000 to $5,000 to my medical debt that I have already. I said I may as well try to live with the pain and see what happens. I live now from one Social Security check to the next with very little left over for things I need. Sometimes a bill or two go without a payment. I ask the help programs for help and they say I don't qualify. I'm trying to figure out what it takes to qualify foraid. I'm 76 years old with both knees replaced with steel and a pair of lungs that only function at 25% because of emphzema and that keeps  me from speaking in a normal voice so people can hear me. SO, I guess I just have to wait and see if the government will change the way wellfare works. I served 3 years in the Iowa National Gaurd but we wern't at war so it doesn't make me a veteran so I can't qualify for any military help either. I guess that's why I say, IS IT JUST ME OR WHAT?
