Down Island Again

Norma has another dentist appointment in Victoria at 12:30 tomorrow so we will be away from here by 7:30 or 8:00 am. That will get us there in time for lunch before she goes in. We will spend the night at Brooks and Linda's tomorrow night.

Brooks has inherited my chronic back problem and is suffering from a really bad sciatic nerve right now. They own their business so he does not qualify for Workers Compensation so he is toughing it out with Linda doing most or all of the lifting. His chiropractor and doctor are both telling him to take a week off and rest it but that is not in the budget right now. He is alternating soaks in the hot tub with ice packs right now to try to control it.

Life goes on.


  1. One word: acupuncture. Don't knock it till you try it.

    Hope Norma's teeth start behaving so you guys can hit the road before you get blocked by snow!

  2. another word.....www.istop.org! Saved my life.

    So you are in Victoria and we are in Chilliwack, next stop cerveza in Mazatlan, the 4 of us.

  3. Hi Croft, I hope Brooks has an exercise routine. I have the same problem and weights have helped me tremendously.

    Hi Norma.
