Short and Fat has hit close to home with his description of his current maladies. The day I turned 40, I woke up with a completely locked up neck. After my first 3 visits ever to chiropractor, I felt I was making progress. I got up at 4:30 this morning to do stretching exercises and get ready for work, when RUABelle came in to tell me a branch as big around as my waist (big) had fallen across our driveway in last night’s storm. The chainsaw’s up at the Sewanee cabin, so an hour of sawing with a little hand saw and hauling branches and logs away, I’ve pretty much undone any good the doc did. Pass the Alleve.
