• "Shoulds"... 1.

    Hi, James! Recently you wrote in a message to Ardith Hinton:

    And do our duty, of course.... Q-)

    Not as much as we used to. *8-0


    Uh-huh. I'm taking our chiropractor's advice to move slowly... thus giving the brain enough time to receive input from the nerves & decide whether or not to abort a particular mission *before* I've caused more damage. :-))

    BTW... around the time I injured my shoulder you had some adventures in the ER with post-surgical bleeding. I trust you are on the mend by now...?



    (BTW, two pairs of dry, clean socks almost eliminates
    blisters on the feet for those reading.)

    Hadn't heard that one. I've made a mental note.... :-)

    A side benefit, is if you make the first layer
    polypropaline (SP?)
    |polypropylene. GAGE CANADIAN DICTIONARY is a
    wonderful resource for those of us who aren't
    too confident of our skill in chemistry. ;-)

    or another wicking synthetic material and the
    outer layer an insulating fabric like wool, your
    feet are rarely subject to cold.


    When I was in Saskatchewan at Christmas years ago that's essentially what I did. I remained warm & blister-free too, although my boots were not of the highest quality. I guess I got it right! Thanks for the validation. :-)



    Wool I like most, because it's a *bugger* for ticks
    to get through, and works when wet.


    Hmm. I remember being warned as a child about ticks & about how one could avoid them by wearing long sleeves etc., but even nowadays I don't see a word anywhere else about wool socks. I've made another mental note... [grin].

    We haven't had much in the way of winter the last 2 years in
    Arkansas. The insects were real bad last year, and I'm afraid they'll be
    worse this year.
