Not the kind that ball players wear. A little lighter with Velcro straps. Just cushy enough to take a bump without bruising myself over nothing.
bubble wrap and packing tape?

The wound is ugly looking. A big mark and blue black (childrenese) surrounding the wound. The piece of skin that I ripped off is at lest a half inch long and a quarter inch wide. I really did it up good this time. I did put some Bacitracin on it. I have to keep it covered. When I go to the bathroom I wipe myself with my left hand. And the wound is just above my wrist on my left hand. I can't take the chance of having that wound exposed to that area when I wipe myself. I apologize for the indelicacies of the description.
have you ever tried washing it out, some neosporin, and crazy glue? it works really well n bad cuts ehen you can't use stitches or butterfly bandages.

I'm just kicking back and reflecting on a really, really nice day.

I spent a major part of it with my best friend of nearly 60 years and we had a ball.

She's newly retired, nearly a year, and has been doing things around her house, little by little. She's had new wood floors installed in most of the house, had the interior painted, and is currently updating her kitchen.

Today we spent our time looking at countertops, kitchen sinks and faucets. She was truly amazed at what is out there and welcomed my expertise and suggestions.

After it was all said and done, she settled on a countertop, chosen a sink and picked out a very nice faucet apparatus. With the newly-painted walls and the refinished cabinets, her kitchen will be fresh and new. This house is the childhood house of her husband and hasn't been updated for over 40 years.

We ate lunch out, laughed and giggled and had a blast.

Our friendship has survived many moves, marriages and divorces (I was the divorced one), children, work years, death of a spouse and, now, retirement. She was there when Buck died and the long months after his death. In so many words, we've been through thick and thin with each other...together. I wonder how many people are lucky enough to have such a friendship.

We usually get together every two weeks and...play. Life is good!!!!

Easy does it Addie, you take care!

I am up at 3 am & cannot sleep, the house is so quiet & peaceful. A glass of chocolate milk & a small brownie are tasting really good right now.

I tried to do the dishes with just one hand. I didn't want to get the dressing wet. Spike was no help. He just kept laughing at me and saying,"Time to take the mixer home". It is his mantra. When we talked about what he wanted, it was the KA mixer. I told him he would have to wait until I died. He just may die before me if he continues to laugh at me.

It is 4 a.m. and I keep sleeping for 20 minutes or so. I hate when that happens. It screws up my sleep pattern.

My youngest son is coming by this morning. Something is wrong. I could tell by the sound of his voice when he called me last night.

I've tried baking bacon a few times and still prefer frying it. Or putting my weaves around something I'm BBQing.
