Carpal bossing

There is a hard lump at the base of her left thumb

Our over-texter
Yet another danger from texting: carpal bossing which is an irritation of the thumb joint caused by over use. It results in a bony lump. Will it go away if she stops using her left thumb? We shall see.

Ah cool! Time for a long bike ride made less pleasant by an accident on the expressway that runs parallel to my route rerouting the traffic onto my road. I stopped to try to photograph a large flock of turkey vultures. Alas, they are very easily spooked so no photos. Up close they are so ugly with their red bumpy heads but at a distance, they are so graceful soaring. Twenty years ago or so, I rarely saw more than one a year. Now they are all over the place. Plenty of deer road kill for them.

August and thus summer is flying by.

Yesterday, Maya practiced on the balance bike. Still does not have the hang of it. And then a trip to the playground. Later, my Cooking for Wellness. The best dish: a grilled vegetable couscous salad. I am becoming friends with a colon cancer survivor. Haven't seen Hope in a while. Hope she is OK.

Ouch on the carpal bossing front.

Thank you. It often takes my MS hands and eyes a number of attempts.
