I hear ya on the grocery store issue Andy. Arg! Right now I'm listening to the baseball game which
is on its last out
just ended. After the wrap-up I'll make an Aldis run. Also waiting for a load of laundry to finish so I can flip it into the dryer before I head out the door. What used to be a quick trip for fill-in items is quickly becoming the main outing. I'd do the farmers markets thing, but most of them around here are in the morning. I may be up before noon, but I don't function until the PM.

Buck had his done, but I can't remember how long his recovery time was but it may not have been too long since the memory is so fuzzy...
Keep in mind Katie that each year brings another improvement in surgery and recovery disciplines. I have a friend with two bionic knees, replaced about a year or two apart. She could not believe how much easier the surgery and recovery was on Knee Two. Unless you find out differently, just believe that you'll have an easier time of it than either Glenn or Buck.

When we lived back home in OH I would head to one of the area parks to sit and read, enjoying whoever or whatever came by. Here in MA, not so much. Every time I'm somewhere wooded, including my own back yard, I know I'm going to have to do a thorough tick check to make sure one of those little buggers didn't dig in for the duration.
