|The stretches Mom’s having me do helps with the pain. “It tells us it’s not from a bone, but a muscle.”|
I’ve been fortunate in that, while I did indeed break the leg, otherwise I’ve only had sprained ankles or broken teeth (the result of bumping into brick walls-or, in the case of high school, metal lockers).

|I called Georgette; the plan is for her to be here sometime between 2:30 and 3. We’ll play Uno or some other game until 4:30 or 5, when we’ll order salads or something from Marco’s. Around quarter of 6, we should probably begin making our way downstairs.|

Morning, Jazmee. |
I understand about being 'slow to go' in the morning. I'm still in pajamas...lol

|It’s too quiet here in Virtual Land.|
I’ve bought new chairs that should be more comfortable than the others, so come on in and relax.
The refrigerator’s packed with various fruits, and I’ve stocked the freezer with ice cream.
I’ve also bought loads of veggies and spent some time cutting some of the fruit and some of the veggies into nice bite-size pieces. Paper plates… cups… what’s your pleasure?

|Anyone want to go out on the balcony? I’ve got wicker furniture out there, and we can watch the birds—we’ve got several varieties. |

|Georgette just called and asked if it would be all right if she came around 1:30. “That’s fine,” I told her.|
On my way to use the bike…

|As the saying goes, “it’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind.” And so, neither Georgette nor I went to Karaoke Night. Instead, since around 1:30, we talked… then ate a snack of party mix… then talked some more… and ordered dinner… then visited with Mom (who showed Georgette her pictures from Hilton Head, and got Ethan out for a bit, and went outside on the balcony with us).|
We ordered from Marco’s: for me, a grilled chicken salad with no tomato or onion, an order of corn nuggets and a Cokep; for Georgette, a grilled chicken tenderloin sub with everything (meaning lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo), an order of breaded mushrooms and a Diet Coke.
Mom’s photos are out on Facebook and include several restaurants she and her friends were at; a boa constrictor; an alligator (well, what could be seen of it); the beachp; and dolphins.
Out on the balcony, Mom read the newsletter we have here, which contains jokes. My favorite was, “What do you get when you cross an elephant with a skunk? A smell you’ll never forget!”

Sorry, Jazmee. I was playing games and time flew.|
Wicker is so pretty. I once had a wicker shelf I kept knick-knacks on.
How are you feeling?

|Don't apologize, Daymare-your time is your own (besides, we're all busy)|
I feel better than I did at 7 (I hadn't taken a Naprosyn yet and was really beginning to feel the pain-not to say it's gone now, but I'm better able to think about somethin else when I have food in my stomach: I ate the bread that came with my salad when I took the pill)

A: Fly to Cape Town and head east. When you reach the ocean, go slightly north and head west. Keep repeating this until you see an elephant, then grab it.
