Oh, Hooray, It's 4° Outside.

     Hooray indeed: it was 2° when I woke up.  (And for those of you in the scientific countries, my handy F to C fonverter says it's -16.7°.  Now that's kind oc fold!  --Just a minute, did that thing stick again?  FONVERTER OCF.  Whew!)

     This kind of weather makes my joints ache and every once-nearly-frotbitten extremity throb.  My right knee, broken, tacked back together with screws and a fish plate and irreversible damage to the cartilage, starts to ack as if it won't bear weight.  It actually will but it hurts like the dickens.  --I haven't much room to complain.  Tamara's travails in this level of cold are nearly indescribable.

     I'm told this chill, like all weather, will pass.  Looking forward to it.

Oh yeah. Everything hurts. Or hurts worse.

Sadly, that's the price of getting old, or injured, or both. Youth is wasted on the young.
