Recommended Posts

75 year old, 6'2'' body....

Overweight....but only by about 50 pounds

Polio....God saved me in my second miracle

Bald....hairs grow faster in my ears and nose than on my

head

Bad hearing....can't hear my wife 10 feet away, but I

hear the trout calling all the way from Arizona

Tinnitus....never a quiet moment

Bad sight....my "optimy" is not optimum

Sore nostrils....fortunitely out of sight

Skin blemishes....my tan has split up into various

discolorations and textures

Stained teeth....I know where the yellow went

Crooked teeth....my orthodontist straightened my jaw 55

years ago, but didn't even notice my teeth

Missing teeth....I've progressed from chew to munch

Bursitis....just in my right shoulder....1 out of 2 ain't

bad

Twice severed rotator cuff....in my left shoulder....2 out

of 2 ain't good

Damaged nerve in my left elbow....numb is dumb

No feeling in my left little finger....no guts dumb numb

elbow nerve

Muscle atrophy....Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT)...look that up

in your Funk and Wagnalls (My stimulus nerves lost

their nerve in my left leg)

Heart attack....miracle on the way to the golf course

(It was also the way to the hospital)

Two stents in heart....never heard of'm till I got'm

Pacemaker....even the battery is a wonder....last 7+ years

Kidney problems....infection and yellow jaundice....my eyes

turned pee colored, and my pee just turned and burned

Digestive problems/acid reflux....my burp burns and my

stomach churns

Prostate....larger is not better...."You're gonna do what

when I drop my pants and shorts?")

Left foot amputated....and it only took 13 surgeries

Right foot deformed.....sympathizing with the left

Last surgery....removed a stub of a metatorsal bone.

Incision made in the wrong place, and had to be

restitched twice. Finally healed when my wife rubbed

it for weeks with Bag Balm. You know what Bag Balm is - DAIRYMEN USE IT TO KEEP THEIR COW'S UTTERS AND TEATS

HEALTHY.

Now I have 4 teats growing out of my stub....

But other than that, I'm doing fine.... except for trout

fever, mountain melencholy, and cold stream syndrome.

Y'all take care!

I've seen the movie Chambub and understand your trials. Although your trip through this old world seems to have brought a little more pain than I have seen, at least you haven't mentioned chemo or major internal surgery. None of this effected my trip to Taney last week, yet the changed streambed effected my catching ratio. We must be the reasons for the handicap accesses. Hang in there, that groundhog delivering your mail is much worse than our failed postal system. You Take Care CM

Thanks CM. My "blog" was not meant as a complaint, nor did I intend to air negative....I believe very strongly that being able to laugh at myself and put some of my physical problems in the right perspective is very important. In so doing, I am well aware of my blessings which far outwiegh the challenges of my physical history. At the same time, I know that there are millions who are physically challenged more than me....To those I say, "Keep your sense of humor, count your blessings, and make the best of your circumstances."

And of course, "if you fish....keep it up!"
