No problem .. we got that covered .. ordered up a sign for the front door that says by appointment only unless you have bacon

This is not the color we have coming .. our color is a creamy coffee color. You can see how nicely it reclines when fully extended, and the loveseat picture shows how incremental it will go ... it's so comfy !

I took mum to the doctors this afternoon and went in with her. Her ankle had really swollen and the doctor said that she has a strained ligament, so he bandaged it up and told her to take some Mobic to get the inflammation down. If it is still sore and swollen by Friday he will set up some x-rays in case it is the bone

Nice recliner. I'll bring the bacon.

I'm putting a new hard drive in my work computer. I noticed a Win 7 disc came with it, so I'm installing Win 7 instead of XP Pro. I'm hoping it will fix my "windows compatibilty issue" that I have here on that pc.
I'm guessing I'm at 25% installed now... I hate waiting for that stuff. You never know when to be there to press Enter or not.

i hope your mum's ankle is not broken, and begins to feel better real soon, kylie. i'm curious to know the reason for the wait on the x-rays. in the u.s. x-rays would be taken immediately in most cases where a fracture is suspected as a possibility.

Hi, Vit. I think it's actually a better practice to wait for an x-ray, unless the doctor can feel or see an obvious break. I fell in January and went the next day to an urgent care center, where the doctor did an x-ray. He said it was strained ligaments because the x-ray didn't show a break. A week or so later I was in my regular doctor's office for another reason and told him my foot still hurt and was swollen. He ordered another x-ray, which showed a tiny hairline fracture. Turns out, many times, a small fracture doesn't show up till you've walked on it for a while. The treatment was no different - one of those "boot" things that keeps your foot from flexing. So it might make sense to hold off on the x-ray if it's not obviously broken during the initial visit.

Just a guess Kylie may have a different explanation. But that's one of those things that increases the cost of health care - too much possibly unnecessary testing.

wistfully reading about recliners, for two reasons. I brought out some very comfortable living room furniture from Ohio, but of course it is in my storage unit. My furnished tiny apartment has a small table with two wooden chairs, one of which I am currently occupying. I just returned from my weekly Tuesday morning hike with a group of women. It was a very strenuous hike and a comfortable chair would be heaven. Think I am heading for the bed and a nap.

I have a studio apartment. And my youngest son bought me a chair with just enough seat depth so that my feet hit the floor. But always thinking of his mom, he also bought me the footstool. But my apartment is just big enough that I too have a table with two dropleafs and when completely closed, the table is only ten inches wide. The support legs swing from closed to support one or both leaves. It is an old Colonial design.
