Yesterday — MidWeek Blues —

Yesterday was my lucky day. Three nice things happened. I will post them here in chronological order:

1. I was FINALLY able to get a 2012 NAPA Calendar. Because I was driving very much after my back pain episode I missed out on them at my favorite NAPA store in Conroe.

Last Friday I went to their other store in Montgomery to see if by any chance they had some left. They did not but the nice parts counter fellow said that he would ask (someone). He made a call and said he would have me one that afternoon.

It was Monday, yesterday, before I could get in to pick it up. You will be seeing if off and on here when I like one of the cars. Past calendars I've posted are here.

2. I am through with my rehab therapy for my after surgery stuff. The physical therapist said to continue the exercises that he had taught me and to walk for 30 minutes a day.

My doctor concurred saying to walk at least 30 minutes at least five days a week. He knew that we were soon going back to London and said that I should get another pair of nice walking shoes. I showed him my fairly new ones but he said I needed a spare to use when those were drying out after getting them wet walking around on rainy days.

3. Mrs. Jim's doctor's office called her on the results of her bone density tests. Her doctor also said that she should start walking for 30 minutes a day. So now we both have each other as walking partners. Mrs. Jim is in better shape than me so she walks faster than I do. But she waits for me or walks slower, at least last night she did.

If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo picture on the right. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions . Just do what I did.
Today there is very much blue in the world. I found just a little bit at our house in this calendar front for you.

THanks for letting me know the Linky did not show up today. I added you post! Now I have to go read it! :) Should have done that first I guess. :)

Have a great day.
Well you did have nice things happen to you indeed. Way to go on the calendar and no more having to go to physical therapy. I like the 30 minute walk thing too. Good for you both.

Have a terrific day. :)
Glad for the good news and that you have a walking partner!
Okay - are you from England and what surgery did you have? Glad you have a walking partner - makes it more fun! And congrats on getting your calendar. sandie
My surgery was the repair of a spinal disk, T-12. The disk was pushed back into near its unfrangmented shape and a cement mixture of powdered bone graft material was injected inside.

Our younger daughter (Karen), two grandchildren, and a son-in-law live in London. Karen is there on a work visa. The others are on a family visa.
I can get you a calender in the future if you strike out again. We also get the little screw drivers, pens and note pads. Be careful on the you trip and don't trip.

We all know that Mrs Jim is from New Orleans so it must be a special day for you both!
Sounds like things are going your way.
Sounds like a great day! Hope things continue to go your way :)
I like when nice things happen to good people :)

of course Mrs Jim waits for you!!

hugs from me and Hope
Yeah! Dr and Mrs Jim are walking partners now as well. Take care :)
Hi Jim ~~ I am so glad that you had some really nice things happen to you. Glad about the Physio, but do keep up with some exercises.
I am sure they will help me walk again unaided. Glad you
enjoyed the jokes and stories and learned some things from my post. The robots are sure getting smarter and the Seniors too.
My back hurts worst from my easy chair and I have been advised to buy a bridge chair and use it at the computer. Take care my friend. Cheers, Merle.
