bad backs–evidence of un-Intelligent Design

September 29, 2009

The human race should have stayed in the trees. Our spines are not made for walking upright. I have a herniated disk for the 3rd time–had to skip my talk to Portland Friends of Mystery and my signing at Seattle Mystery, but I’m determined to make it to speak to Junction City Friends of Library next Saturday. They’ve promised to provide a wheelchair, a comfy seat with lots of cushions and a footstool. Now I just have to work out how to pack up a couple of boxes of books to take with me.

A friend unloaded the dishwasher for me, but I think I’m going to manage to put away the laundry. Haven’t tackled yet unpacking the bag I packed for the Seattle trip. Can’t fill the bird-feeders–I swear the dear little birdies are giving me dirty looks through the window. Guilt trip! It’s good for them to find some other source of food.

To think just 3 months ago I was paddling my brother’s kayak on the Thames and exploring Rocky Valley!

This is my son and granddaughter on the river, my brother in it,  keeping an eye on her!
