It was a great day yesterday here in Bloomington. Sunny, not much wind, and temperature in the high 40's.
Woke up to this crap this morning.
Maybe God ate too much turkey and now he's crapping all over us.

I read an article the other day indicating that falls are the leading cause of injury for older people.
One out of every three Americans 65 and older falls and almost a third of them require medical treatment. What's scary is that almost 16,000 older people died from falls. So, I've come up with a way to make sure I'm in the category of seniors who don't get hurt or die after falling. I put a mattress on the floor, intentionally tripped myself, and fell on the mattress. No injury and I'm still alive. Got that out of the way......Now what's next?

Every once in a while, I come across a news report like this, and it makes me appreciate how truly lucky I have been during my lifetime. Difficult days I have experienced from time to time, don't even come close to what many others through no fault of their own are faced with on a daily basis.

Knowing this kid, and from the expression on her face along with her crossed arms, I have to wonder what she's thinking. Probably something like, "Geez, when is this old buggah going to pop off."
