If it aint Papa with aches and pains its me !

Well, the past few days my knee has been acting up and I have been hobbling  around very carefully. I damaged my knee years ago when  I played  hockey and had to stop because of it. It acts up every now and then but this time its worse then it ever has been. I think I have twisted it,  lord knows how I have done it . I haven’t  done anything strenuous  to it at all, Guess old age is creeping up on me sooner then I  like it to lol.I wont go into gory details but lets just say it feels like it wants to crack or pop all the time like its stuck or something and aches like a son of a gun ! I have to be careful as to how I step and position my leg because of my knee, see not to gory ! lol As my British mum always used the phrase for times like this  YA   POOR OLD COW ! lol  So I go around saying that all the time  out loud ! yup crazy country folk, hillbillies lol . yeehaaww !


Papa was putting a support beam up in the house on Sunday to help with our sagging roof, old farm houses huh ! he got it all tightened up fitted and what not, so he thought ,well when he walked past it later that day it fell , see the floor is springy and therefore it moved the beam from its position and it came crashing down right on Papas back of his shoulder, well a few choice words were used , then we both laughed, between the two of us and our injuries we were joking that we will need walkers soon at this rate lol or put us in a protective room RUBBER room lol Papa’s shoulder is ok not even a bruise which is odd considering the speed and weight of the beam when it fell on him,a bit sore it is but as he said or we always say he will live! Thank goodness!  Its funny at times with all our aches and pains and ailments that we don't go mad lol maybe that's next lol  AHAHAH hence the Rubber room lol I usually just say  PA GET THE SHOT GUN ! and put me out of my misery PLEEEAASE !  he always says NO!  great, I say  to him, now I have to keep sufferin here , thanks lol We always are joking around like this eases the tension to every situation and besides we are country bumpkins !  NUTS ! at times lol.

So I am just taking it easy and being careful watching every step and slowly am on the mend, if it doesn't get better by rest and support of a tenser bandage or a knee brace then I will suck it up and go to the Dr.Still wont stop me from going out to do my photography, ya I’m stubborn like that   !


Hope you all are in better shape then I am right now lol

                Have a happy and SAFE ! day !Open-mouthed smile

I hope your knee gets better soon, if all else fails take to the whisky! I often wonder what goes on in bed at night because quite often I wake up on a morning with aches and pains that were nowhere to be seen the night before.

Yep girl, I know what ya mean...I sound like a one woman rhythm band when I stand up.

Some of the stuff we do it's a wonder if we live through it. The last time we worked with support beams it involved a tornado, carport and a floor jack. Heeehehehe!!!

God bless ya and take care of your snaps and pops!!!

Aches and pains are no fun that's for sure..maybe too much fun in the snow with Miggy? Hope you and Papa are feeling better soon. Take good care of yourself.

I can commiserate, since I have been dealing with a sore knee since November. Now some eight weeks later, and finally a bloody MRI approved {that's a whole different story in itself}, bedrest, steroid shots, physical therapy, they've figures it's a torn meniscus, something we could have had diagnosed on the front end if they had gotten the insurance companies to approve one earlier.
I'm deciding whether or not to have surgery.
Hope yours gets better sooner than later !
Yep, getting old is not for the faint of heart :)
