Foot problem

So Lisa is the new woman in my life. She is supposed to replace Sherlene who took her massage table with her to North Dakota, not to return. Lisa got a one time trial on Saturday and did not meet the standard of her predecessor, unfortunately. Because I need a good strong knowing hand to work on my left foot.

Owwww! On my sole from the pad of my foot back to my heel it is sore and tight. It hurts when I work it over with the stick or a tennis ball. Lisa didn't make it feel better either. I can run alright but it was swollen this morning when I got up after all the "over care" I gave it yesterday.

I will try Darrell's remedy and hit it hard with anti-inflammatories but I do not plan to stop running ... yet.

A great weekend is coming to an end. A weekend is great when you can forget about work and, when you show up for work the next time, you can't remember what you were working on before you left. Ahhhh!

I had a nightmare last night. Sweet Susie was in the starring role but I cannot remember exactly what it was that woke me up. Some sudden realization I suspect.

Son T (the West Pointy one) has made me totally jealous. He was at MY BEACH in Shelter Harbor on Saturday with my sister. It was so nice they stayed until sunset. And tonight he's at Fenway Park in the bleachers to watch the Red Sox beat the Indians. Now THAT'S a weekend.

I love easy, relaxing weekends like that. Hope your heel feels better soon. I trust you're icing it ....

Hmmm. I won't use that dirty two-letter acronym, David, but it does sound like your foot's a got a clear case of it.

Hope you can find the right lady to take care of it.

Ahh.... the weekend-sounds like a good one.

Be careful with your footie - they don't make replacement parts.

Will you be contemplating a move to North Dakota? Hopefully you'll be able to find someone a little closer who can do your tootsie justice.

la, la, la, la - you can't hear Jon.

Stretch your toes towards your shin with your fingers every chance you get. It helps

Nigntmare? It is almost June.

We'll find out soon if we are in NY or not - that is what your nightmares should be about.

Take care of that foot David.

A good woman is hard to find. A good massage therapist is even harder.

This little piggie went to market, this little piggie went home, this little piggie went to North Dakota!

Take care of your foot! You've got a marathon in NY to run.
