I cut my husbands hair Barbara, I use clippers with the different sized guides, it is pretty easy after you have done it a few times

I am off to see my surgeon very shortly, it has been 4.5 months since my shoulder operation but it still hurts a lot at times, so I just want to check on it

Lovely sunny day here
Kylie being an old hand with surgery, I would like to offer you some observations that I have found over the years. You just had your winter while we had our summer. The cold will always bother you for the first year when it is cold outside. I had a growth removed from a finger. A tiny little scar that you can't even see today. The first winter I went outside for a few minutes and I thought my whole hand was going to fall off with the pain. When I had my heart bypass in October, I had to keep the temperature above 75F. Anything lower than that and the scar would just start throbbing. And that was inside the house. When I had to go back to the doctor's for a checkup, my daughter had to heat the car up first and then bring it as close to the door as possible.

For some strange reason I have yet to figure out, it is only the first year that the cold will bother you. Your warm weather is coming now and the pain should lessen.

When my son had his shoulder operated on, I tried to warn him about the effect of the cold on the incision. He didn't believe me. He found out the hard way when he tried to run to the corner store with no jacket on in the middle of last year's winter. He came back in tears. Lesson learned.

Thanks for the warning, Addie. I've been wondering about the three bolts in my hip. They call them pins. Huh? they are 4", threaded BOLTS. I have been relatively good with pain (after 2 mos, I now only have pain if I come down unexpectedly hard on that leg, or if I'm not careful when turning (keep those toes in line with the knees and hips). But can't help but wonder how those bolts will fare when it is below freezing out. Luckily I have two pair of flannel-lined jeans! And lots of rice socks and a big heating pad!

Some of those hand warmers in your pockets might help too, Claire!

I just pinched all the flowers off my basil. I have a sweet basil and a Greek basil plant. Oh my, my fingers smell heavenly.

Yes, I can see how that would make fingers smell delightful.
