I must admit that being fully vaccinated against COVID has not, as yet, made me excited about leaving the relative safety of my home. Putting things into perspective, I’ve really got it “made,” as the saying goes. After all, I have nothing to complain about my current accommodations. The beds are clean and comfy; the bathrooms are stocked with thirsty towels.
There’s an exercise area on the lower level, complete with a stationary bike, and Netflix, Hulu and a score of other premium channels offer up some top quality entertainment at all hours of the day and night. Finally, the kitchen is always open and well stocked, and the chef, the sous chef and the inhouse baker...they would all be me…is/are excellent.
Sometimes, quiet is my thing….in which case, a snuggle with one or both of these gentlemen comes in handy.
Warmer weather has taken my attention outdoors, with the big draws being shorter nights and longer days, a new bird feeder and the awakening of growing and sprouting things. The grass is going crazy!!!
So, with all these charmingly domestic topics to investigate…and spring and summer knocking at my door…and the world about to beckon to us all…so WHY with all this to explore….why, of all things, am I introducing you to Philip? Meet Philip…and his machine!!!
Philip and I have only met once, but I can tell you that he is a great guy, a gentleman and a real professional. Meeting Philip was the first step in getting Jackie’s right knee ready to do something other than sit in a chair for half of the day. Philip operates a scan machine; he took the scans that will enable my surgeon to give me a new knee later on this month. I am not exactly jumping for joy about all this, but I am eager (to get a leg up) and be myself again…perhaps an even better version of myself. In the meantime, all of you hug your knees tight…give them some love and respect…
Hang on to your junketing spirit..and I promise to do the same…
