Cop Out

Too Tired in the AM

I was too darn tired to get up early this morning. Once I did go out around 8:30, I fed the Boys and did a good cleaning of all the stalls.

That wore me out and again, despite it's being cooler, I was soaked with sweat by the time I was done.

With the horses well fed and settled in with some hay, I came back into the house. When I went out later to check the temperature, it was hot again. I simply could not face that, so I was back inside to watch the Tour de France.

Not sure where the time went but by 3 PM I had to go back out to feed since I was leaving for the video filming for my knee doctor at 4.

The drive to the studio took about 45 minutes. When I got there they were filming my doctor doing his promotional talk for the video. This will be posted on his website eventually, so if my little piece is included, I will be an Internet video star. (Yeah, right) Anyhow, when it was my turn, I took about a minute or so to talk about how Dr. Magaziner's treatments have kept my knees functioning despite the problems I have and the consequences of the surgeries.

There was another patient there with a hip problem and the doctor's treatments have kept him from needing a hip replacement at age 51.

That little bit of publicity work done, I drove home and here I am. Once more thinking about going out to work a horse

Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
