Well wishes — Six Word Saturday — Therapy
The upper pictures are of my 'heel slide' stretch and one of my riding the bouncy ball. Each of these is actually from 'stretch exercise' ideas. My pose was about my max bending for each toward the beginning of two sets of ten pulls and rolls.
I am riding the bicycle slowly for eight minutes. The idea for this ride is not to stretch but rather for exercise of the knees. In eight minutes I am riding 0.7 miles and burn 16 calories.
That means I have a long way to go to reach my sister's progress. She has ridden from Center Point (near Cedar Rapids) Iowa to Western Colorado so far on her stationary bike. I don't know when she started. She is riding for exercise an weight control and not rehab.
I can do all my exercises, there are more than pictured here, at home. I have to go up to our fitness center to for riding the bicycle and for rolling on the bouncy ball. I may have already mentioned that I can drive up there now.

A big wish here also for those who live along our Eastern Coast. This certainly is a storm not to be fooled with. I do wish and pray for the health and safety for all of you.
BTW, we around the Gulf Coast are still patching up after our IKE of three years ago. It takes over six months to restore a flood damaged home, at least it did for us after tropical storm Claudia of 1979 dumped three feet of water in it.
Knees can be tricky
I, too, have had a few tricky joints in my time, but that's another whole story.
I hope you can kick yourself in the rear real soon (you don't often get get to say that and mean it in a nice way).
And no - you weren't the last 6WS by far. Another 10 or so wandered in after you. :)
All the folks affected by Irene are in my thoughts and prayers.
Have a terrific day. :)
I am glad that you enjoyed the story of Dad and Cheyenne - it was a good one. Sorry that Adi is too old to walk with you, but still likes to play for a while.
Take great care my friend, Regards,
