Charge him $10...that's $3 less than Walmart and Great Clips.

Tell him you want to start practicing doing the hair art that barbers do. Start with a big Z on the sides. He will go screaming out the door to the nearest barber. (I have such an evil side to me!)

I saw my surgeon this morning and he checked my shoulder. He said that I have a good range of movement and good strength but that it will take a fair time to heal completely as he did a lot of things to fix it, all of which will take a long time to heal, also the fact that I had these issues for nearly 2 years, so there was a lot of damage already

He said it may take up to 18 months to heal completely and for the pain to go away, also I am to rest it more and try not to do things such a sweeping and mopping, just not use it too much as it is aggravating it

Lucky my lovely Steve does all the mopping and sweeping etc for me these days and Roomba does the vacuuming

I too find sweeping is very painful. The sternum bone never heals after open heart surgery. Every time I take a breath, the bone moves and the edges never get a chance to knit together. As a result the sweeping action creates a lot of pain.

I am glad to hear your good news though.

I have arthritis in both my hands. I have already lost the use of two fingers.

I had a bunch of wooden knobs that I removed from a small bureau I had. I was putting on new ones. For some reason I kept them. My son took them and filled the screw hole with wood putty and then drilled them to the size of the screw on the lamps after you remove the little knob that comes with it. He then screwed the knobs onto the lamp screws. It is so much easier to turn the lamps on now. I love them. It does look a little odd. But then I have never been one to do things with what other folks might think. I am not one to keep up with the Joneses. I like to think I am the Joneses. Now I have to clean the shades in the shower. The shades are very expensive one. More than the lamps.
