There is only one thing I ever got up earlier for, my own birth. Morning classes for teens is a physiological stupidity. During the teen years the brain is actually wired for afternoon and evening attention.

I never said I was normal. I've always been an early bird; when I'm able to sleep that is. When I was a teen I could sleep through anything, not so now. SIGH!!!

Overcast and sprinkly morning. Might rain later.

Have day lilies to plant...after pulling out rocks and making a bed. Should have worked on it yesterday but lacked motivation.

Getting downright toasty here. Went with husband to the orthopedist today. Total knee replacement in October.



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

He played in the senior olympics a few months before needing a new knee.
Not bad.

Keep us informed. I'm sure I'll need one in the future.

I got my knee drained and steroids shot in.The wonder fix! Until it wears off.

Rusty waited until after dinner, when he was playing with the 7 year old twins a few houses down.

Thank goodness it was a hard, easy to pick up poop. He was in their yard, chasing a ball.

I had to wait for the mom to come back out of the kitchen to leave. Hand them off to her!

They are nuts! The boy is totally crazy and the girl is cute.

She went to throw a ball ,but rusty tried to grab it and she ran. Thank goodness the mom was out and told her the same thing I did.
If you run because you are scared of a dog, he thinks you are playing and will chase you and jump on you!
I'm glad the mom knew that.

Rusty didn't jump on her.

Don't know why she was scared, she comes over every time she sees Rusty.

School starts next week. That will be the end of kids being out. You don't see any durning the school year.
Not even the pre schoolers.

One knee cyst seems to be way smaller. It was the one causing most of the trouble.

The other one is still there.
I wonder if I can get it with the hat pin?

The doctor was not at all happy I've been attacking a small, but ugly, cyst on my finger. I gave it a year and then jabbed it with the hat pin.

It worked!

Until it filled up again.

So I did it again.

I''m OK with it. The doctors are not. Something about infections and stuff...

Until I get one, I'll keep attacking it. If I grab it with a tweezer, I can pull the scab off when it is big.

Don't need the hat pin anymore.

I don't know about the cyst on your hand, but I've been told the cyst behind the knee if very close to a nerve and it's really easy to hit the never (with bad results), which is why very few doctors even try it.

Perhaps Josephus could jump in here with a comment.

Interesting, what led to the orthopedist's office today was the back of husband's knee suddenly started hurting really bad. Surprise, surprise, another Baker's cyst. So me, son, and husband have all been diagnosed with a Baker's cyst in the last four months.

That is the one behind my knee that gives the trouble.

Showed up overnight one night.

I didn't do a thing to the knee, that I can remember, for weeks.


Hurt for awhile.

Stopped hurting for months and months.

Started up again.

Damn knee, neck, hand and back of foot!

A friend found out she has a cyst wrapping around one toe. She's waiting until the end of the summer to have surgery on it.

Worked in the garden last night. Got the outline of the new one filled with rocks from the edges. Whoever was here before put down SO many rocks along the fence. I guess to stop a dog from digging? But they just dumped them, no liner...so now they're grown in and full of weeds and grass. There's probably 2 feet of rock that I've been mowing, not knowing the rocks were there!

Spider, front yard this morning.

Yep, that's a Baker's cyst. I was using a walker when it first started, but haven't had a problem for months. And unless you're having knee surgery for something else, nothing they can do about it. Or nothing they're going to do about it.

Yeah, I have the tiny cyst on my finger and it fills up every time I empty it.
Sometimes right away, sometimes it takes weeks.
It must take an operation to get rid of them. Just emptying them doesn't work.

Now that most of the water is gone off the knee, the cysts have calmed down. They are there, but not causing any trouble.

OK, Mom day.

Have to find Goddaughter today. She is doing a semester in England and leaving tomorrow.

I spent days watching this tiny moth in my house.
Finally caught it to let it go outside.

Then an hour latter....another one!

Got to remember to spray the bug spray.

One gets catch and release.

That's a new one on the news.

A guy stole a repair truck with a boom to work on power lines and trees.

He drove around an entire neighborhood with the boom up and ALL the wires and trees limbs came down!

He was 56. Trying to steal stuff from the truck yard and it wouldn't fit in his truck, so he used the big mac truck. Then he pushed the wrong switch while driving and the work boom with up, taking down everything he drove under.

I'm surprised the truck could destroy telephone poles just by catching the wires. It did.

This is an interesting story, because it wasn't my neighborhood!

Probably a cross orb weaver. One of the striking features was the awesome orb web, really striking. One of the more 'perfect' webs I've seen.

Hey everybody! It has been wonderful the last couple of days. It has warmed up some today, I took a little nap on the porch. Traffic is way down. Not very many people on the beach this morning. it is great. School has started here and in the surrounding states.

I'm going to make biscuits to go with our leftover beef stew. Have a great evening!

There was a spider in the bag they put on the newspaper this week.

I was going to use it for dog poop and when I was folding it up, I found the spider.

Small, non scary, except the bag was on my kitchen table, spider.

I took the bag outside and tried to convince the spider to leave the bag and go on the shrub.

Took awhile to get him out of the bag.

Gotta catch Scratchy and put him in the crate early tomorrow.
He is getting his teeth cleaned.

Then God daughter is on a visiting tour before she leaves for her semester abroad tomorrow night.

Not that she waited for the last minute or anything like that!

Somehow I'm on the grandparent visit list.

Dang that is old.

btw, nobody lives more than a mile away from her house and she lives at home.

Well, better than Son, he never got to say goodbye to anyone. Odds are good that he won't be home before Christmas either.

Scratchy acted like his life was over when he didn't get breakfast!

I took him to the vet and the office had no record of his teeth cleaning. OH NO! But they put him in for it.

I get to call at 5 to see if he is ready to come home.

If they pull any teeth, this should be interesting. How do you give a cat a pain pill?

You shove it in the left corner pocket (cheek) and blow in their face. Makes them gulp/swallow.
