That's in the super-secret room.

That looks very nice, very warm, and very comfy.

However, it's missing stacks of math, physics, engineering and history books. :frown:


Nice dolly. :smile:
Thanks. I don't even know where all of my books are. Yeah, the dolly will come in handy with the move.

We can have a race!
My money is on MIH. Evo will fall and injure herself before getting out of the gate.

A fabulous idea! Who or what will we be carting?

Chances are, you'd be carting Evo to the ER to get her patched up. Be sure to bring straps with ratchets to secure her to the dolly.

How about Astro & zooby?

Better call "dibs" on MIH, Astro. It will improve your chances of surviving the race.

Good idea. Zoobies have pretty robust bone structures; he'll be fine.

Hopefully, the task will be complete before winter sets in. Chin up.

It should go easier now that you've gotten rid of your 8 legged houseguest. :wink:
Good luck!

You should dress like football players do, that will reduce risk of injuries.

i'd look for a knot in the calf or the muscles of the side and bottom of the foot.

I have plantar fascitis in my right foot. It feels like a stabbing pain in the heel when it's bad. I have some New Balance toning shoes with good internal support and a "rocker" sole that reduces heel-strike, and I wear those whenever I take Duke out for a long walk. They have helped a lot, and even if I have to spend a lot of time on my feet I don't get the pain that I used to. PF is a pain :devil: and it can crop up in people who have suddenly elevated their level of activity or recently gained weight. I'm pretty sure it is more prevalent in men, but it could be a possibility for you.

Good luck! I wish that I lived in driving distance and could help with the move.

And how much stuff will be hopelessly lost after the move? My wife and I lived in Spartan accommodations when we were in the first few years of our marriage, and we traveled as light as possible when we moved so I could chase construction jobs. Still, somehow, a lovely forged high-carbon steel 6" Thiers-Issard chef's knife came up missing at some point. That was my favorite kitchen knife of all time, and I had a hard time pulling $25 out of my pocket in the mid-70's to pay for that rascal, but it was well worth it. We were saving as much out of each of our checks as we could every week so that some day we would have enough money to make a down payment on our own place, but I couldn't resist that knife. It was on sale in a newly-opened cooking store for about 1/3 off and I had to have it. I should buy a replacement, but we cut and chop so many acidic vegetables these days that I opted for a SS model. Still, that carbon-steel forged blade would "sing" when you rubbed your thumb across the edge and it held an edge 'way better than SS.

There are papers that still haven't surfaced after our move here 6 years ago - some that can't be replicated. There are also small specialty tools, etc that have never emerged from all the packing boxes.

Evo, FYI Turbo,

Be careful for God's sake moving... Rhody sends moving angels o:) Evo's and MIH's o:) way, I had PF as well both heels one after the other 5 years apart. Podiatrist, numbed inside heel with liquid nitrogen, then, a liberal shot of cortisone (felt nothing the heel was fooled by the cold from the liquid nitrogen) and this took care of it, sore for about three days, then pain free. I am careful not to stress ankles without warm up.

I hope you have success with the ghost seeds. Some peppers are heading your way tomorrow. It would be cool to have a trimmed ghost monster of your very own to brag about wouldn't it ?

Rhody... o:)

It's more than a possibility. It's a reality. And yes, it came with weight gain. It doesn't necessarily go away with weight gain, however.

One of my docs suggested I follow a diet for those with gout, and I found instant relief, but only about 40%. "The rest," he said, "comes from loosing the weight and getting back into shape."

I didn't loose the weight, but when I began cycling, my PF disappeared. Don't know if it's related or not. Some folks might find cracking their own walnuts eases the symptoms. Who knows?

What I did makes sense to me. As it's basic fitness, not some pie in the sky cure, you might try it. Can it hurt? Don't think so.

In different circumstances I would offer a kiss to sooth your pain, but with my marital status and being 5000 miles away I can only comfort you by saying - poor Evo :frown:

I massaged my heel last night pretty well, hoping that the pain would end the pain and I would wake up painless.

Nope.

Good lord. I have to dismantle my computer & tv set up, there are 50 kagillion cords.
