I’ve used WordPress for three years and not once have I had any glitches, issues, problems–nothing! Until today! The site keeps switching me to “block editor” instead of the “classic editor” I’ve used since day one. What’s up with that WordPress???
Thursday was another one of those busy days putting on the miles. Our first stop was in Columbus, Montana where the physician’s assistant for the orthopedic surgeon I saw holds a clinic at the local hospital. I had additional knee x-rays and then a blunt conversation with the PA. Seems the orthopedic surgeon I saw last September might have missed something as he told me my knee looked “great, no arthritis!” Not only do I have arthritis but I have significant arthritis and am not too far from having to have a total knee replacement!! YIKES!! When a person has an injury and arthritis, arthroscopic surgery won’t help. I’m not quite to the bone on bone stage but close. So, we are trying conservative measures–the knee was injected with cortisone on Thursday. If that doesn’t work we will try a three part injection series of a gel substance made from the combs of roosters of all things! Geez, I turn 65, start Medicare and fall apart!!
We enjoyed the best lunch at a new to us restaurant–the Windmill. They have a beautiful outdoor patio behind the restaurant situated on the edge of a large pond surrounded by cottonwood trees. They allow pets on the patio, our food was good and the service outstanding!
Late in the afternoon I saw a new internist. He spent one whole hour with me, taking my history and doing an exam. The most thorough doctor’s visit I’ve had, ever! Impressive!
Friday was a warm, breezy day in Montana with some smoke appearing from the west–had hoped we were finished with that stuff! The Cowboy finished his Geoff and Nancy project and I spent part of the day loading things into the motorhome.
Saturday we took a short road trip with friends Sarge and Sarah. There is a small ranching community north of Big Timber called Melville. The building which sits by the highway has always been a restaurant and served as the local post office for so many years. The post office is now gone and three young women have opened a new restaurant in the building–Cafe 191. We were able to sit on the porch, the food was good, the company delightful.
Sunday we spent the afternoon at Geoff and Nancy’s in the company of good friends. They have a lovely home with an awesome deck on the edge of the river. We ate good food, drank great wine and enjoyed the company of good people.
Life is good!
Here are some photos of our latest projects–
The Cowboy cut these from steel for Geoff and Nancy–there are five of them but these two are probably my favorites.
And I gifted this scarf to Sarah on Saturday so I can now post a photo–I finished this piece about three weeks ago but Sarah was in Wisconsin at the time.
Life is good!
