Next worst is the awful Progressive commercial wherein Jamie is coaching singers trying for Blue Heaven.

Ken.............have you seen a doctor about your neck? Getting headaches doesn't sound right or good.

I think I may have brought this problem on myself. You may recall that I moved from Colorado to Arizona a couple years ago. I was seeing a chiropractor on a very regular basis in CO, but neglected to stay with that after the move. Got busy with new stuff and taking care of needs and new interests. I sort of got acquainted with new doctors as the need came up. I lost a crown in the first month, so the dentist was my first "find".

I started with a new DC here in AZ since the first of the year, but not very regularly until recently. He tells me this is tension and I need to ice the neck after his treatment, which I am bad about doing. At any rate, I think this is going to be taken care of with more regular attention and following advice.

I feel pretty good, otherwise. This warmth is certainly a big help and the primary reason for the move. The triple digit days are much easier to cope with than the below freezing winters in CO, as much as I hated to leave my home state.

Good to hear from you!

I know a few people with arthritis in the neck and they say it can be very painful as well as very hard to treat. A simple x-ray will tell a person quite a lot about what's going on and why pain exists. I was just wondering if you'd gone that route or not? I'm sure your doc knows a lot more about it than I.

Did you see this?

Colored X-Rays.

MRI says I have a popliteal cyst at the back of the knee and some patellar/tendon displacement. I think the latter is what’s causing the problems. Doc is setting me up with a referral to an ortho guy. My daughter had the same problem, and it was addressed with PT.

So...no amputation is needed?

Dang! I was going to offer help.

Oh, well....

I know you're disappointed.

Ah well, there may be other opportunities as the aging process works it's way forward.

Many years ago I worked with a graduate of Julliard, an incredible pianist and man of many talents. He worked as a mechanic for the State of Alaska in Nome.

He carried a clean ballpoint pen case and kept his pocket knife razor sharp. He just knew one day the opportunity would arise for him to preform a tracheotomy.

Didn't happen when I was there. Wonder if his dream was ever fulfilled.

That is that silly thing with the awful voice. The Bible is best read in quiet solitude, imo.
