Morning all. It’s been a while.

We’ve been busy in the Gold Fields of Ca. Brief synopsis:

Mrs. TK and I moved down to the city. Nothing fancy, just a 2 bedroom townhouse with a garage. But it’s 4 walls and a roof.

Had a 3 week bout with the stomach flu. That was fun. I lost 15lbs that I couldn’t afford to, but it did make me feel less bad about all the Christmas food I ate ::)

I’ve been really busy at work. Somehow I got sucked into a lot of “collateral duties,” which have mostly been leading contract burn crews on prescribed fires. Just spent 9 days burning around the ghost town of Denny, CA. Neat place, the New River is pleasant. The constant rain, not so much.

Mrs. TK just accepted a job with the Forest Service. GS5 admin. She’s pretty happy about that.

And finally, Mrs. TKs horse stepped on a 3/8” rusty bolt last week, so now we’re going out and changing his bandage and force-feeding his antibiotics twice a day. Good time had by all.

Y’all keep dry out there.

Home remedies...y'all may know this one. but it was enlightenment to me.
My friend Dakota Ike (on this BB) mentioned Castor Oil for sore joints.

Back in December my left knee, began to hurt, Tendonitis Pain, inflamed and some swelling.
Seems to happen every copula years, since I reach the approximate same age as OLD people  ::)   

So, I tried medical grade Caster Oil USP, this is the stuff one takes for digestion issues. constipation.
You apply it topically and rub in for about 3-4 minutes wrap it with a flannel cloth (Terry or old Tee shirt will do) and wrap with saran wrap.

Relief is almost immediate and as a side benefit, the slight arthritis in my ring finger was also soothed.

Many of you may say, well Duh! I've known this for years.
But in my neck of the woods, the rocks one might dwell under can be rather dense. 

BiOFreeze and the like have little or no effect, while the Caster Oil works .

Morning all. Managed to trip coming out of a Casey's yesterday and in addition to launching a fresh coffee all over a fellow's work van, twisted my knee and back pretty good. Nothing major, took some good pain pills when I got home and slept for 14 hours. Pretty sore today, but don't see any real damage. Don't bounce like I did when I was 20!

Sorry to hear your fall. Please take it easy and get better soon. I over did my pool workouts and I'm nursing a sore back. Had a third tooth pulled today. The average amount of teeth left in the age 80-84 range is 11.3. At 83, I shouldn't complain.

Sounds like several of us are a wreak, best wishes for all  :)

I spoke with an old Film partner today, he's recovering from his second knee replacement, and also on a bionic hip.
Except for a few teeth I have my original OEM parts for 7 1/2 15 lustrum I'm not complaining either. 

I'm more rat rod that restro mod though.

You know how long a lustrum is, right?   ;)

Rub it in about 3 minutes or so, then I add a bit to the cloth wrap and the Seran wrap, wear it all day.
At the end of the day the area will absorb the extra oil...

Had a third tooth pulled today. The average amount of teeth left in the age 80-84 range is 11.3. At 83, I shouldn't complain.

After a rather prolonged period of do something (No teeth left in mouth), wait to heal, repeat, several times.  It took me from march of 2021 until last Tuesday to get my final teeth.  (almost 3 years)  Going out tonight for a nice steak to test them out.  So far, they seem to be working just fine.  Won’t even go into the fiasco of mixing Hearing Aids and MRI s ::) ::) ::).

Better dress warmly in that weather!  I hear people have to be careful down there.  My wife found this a few days ago:

About a year ago my dentist spent 20 minutes with me going over how to floss. He put me on to a miniature brush system for flossing along with a floss holder. It really does the job and it's easy to use. I was impressed by time he took with me. This is available on Amazon.

On another note, 2-1/2 years ago, my wife had a very serious operation. During the initial visit with the Surgeon, he gave us his cell phone number and said, "call me if you have any questions". First time that ever happened.

When we get a new prescription, our Pharmacy calls a few days later and asks if any questions. First time that ever happened.

We are in our sixth year in Florida and very pleased with the Health Care we receive.
