    My husband spent his whole life doing factory work. After 20 - 30 years working the 2nd and 3rd shifts, he finally ended up on a day shift a few years ago. The money differential is not worth the wear and tear on your body, if you can get an earlier one. My take anyways. After finally getting that day shift, he has had to leave work behind. I don't believe he'll ever return to working, unless a miracle happens. I wouldn't allow him to return if he could. Trying to enjoy that morning sunshine, walking the dogs and what not.

    Thanks Sophia and Jaws, the past year has been a strange one indeed, been about that long since I found out I had cancer in the midst of covid.. have had 2 hospital stays (non-covid related).....anywho....what a pain.

    many moons ago I started out in Nursing at the end of highs school, shifted to Veterinary work for quite awhile, later shifted back to the human race medicine Hubby and I both became EMT's for 10 years, didn't like night shifts then either lol, but did drag out of bed for the occassional local first response....then took forever to catch up on sleep. Did a factory job night shift a few years, always made sure I was still on the list of those wanting the day shift lol.

    Time for some Iced tea....have the adult beverages on ice for later.

    Enjoy the nice weather, and all the good stuff that nature brings us. My walks in the park are increasingly special, and I am so appreciative that it is so close to us. Last couple of days have been large turtle sightings on a log, in an overflow area off the river.

    I just love the smells that rise from the warm earth, weather during sunny days or after rain. And the sunsets off the river are just wonderful! So simple, but so amazing.

    Thanks

    LT, injections are the first step, surgery if that doesn't work. The pandemic hasn't helped!
    Hope V gets some relief.

    Yeah, that would be tough. Very.

    My wife has been having pain in her left shoulder and arm... it's been bothering her because it's the *left* shoulder and arm and she's trying to exercise more. Finally went to the Dr. to get it checked out and he thinks its a pinched nerve. Obviously not as bad as what RTS sounds like, but some similar symptoms for obvious reasons.

    Couple years though? Is there nothing they can do longer term?

    WellI finally had the surgery I waited months for, so good to have that in my past, am now on a different chemo schedule pills and weekly blood tests so we shall see how that goes,it has been a whirlwind some weeks, will spare you those weeks lol couldn't keep track myself sometimes. Dust seems to have settled hopefully for sometime now.
    We are having great weather, so rare...not too hot not too cold not too humid, it might not last so enjoying along it with the flowers

    It's a hard thing for the dust to ever settle on I imagine, but I hope the new schedule works well for you and glad the surgery is behind you. Keeping you in my prayers.

    I didn't realise you had worked in Nursing Homes. Judging by my inability to stay awake for Broncos games I think I'd be pretty awful at nights.
    Glad to hear the wait is over & hope & pray you heal well.

    Dang, that is stressful.

    I don't know if I missed it or simply forgot, but what is wrong with the boy's fins?

    M my son's partner is on her last night of work at the Nursing Home, I don't know how she's managed up to now. She sees a Consultant Thursday.
    Hope you're doing ok.

    Sure. It's a big deal in the world of golf which will definitely be changed as a result. The large sums are being handed out for reasons. One wonders if those reasons will confine themselves to golf, or expand into other sports or beyond. Actually, it already has. Time will tell.
    I love golf, and I used to love playing it. My dream opportunity would be to play Augusta and Pebble Beach. Of course there are many others. But based on how things are evolving, The Masters and the other majors will be played by fewer of the best. This will probably dilute the record books, and asterisks may appear. Tiger has been chasing Jack for the most majors, and may never reach him, but depending how diluted the tour, these records may not stand up as they should.

    The solution for me is to ensure the best are eligible for Majors. Maybe that is already part of the plan, but I assume being suspended means you can not play The Majors. The other tournaments are important, but the big boys skips some of them, even a lot of them, for the big 4, plus a few others (The Players Championship for sure) that are ranked just behind in terms of importance.
