Sick Day Today

Sundays 24 hour cold seems to have made a comeback. I went to work Monday, feeling like crap because I had some mandatory stuff to do. I was feeling better by the afternoon. Yesterday, I felt ok when I went to work, but got worse all day. This morning, when I opened my eyes, I felt OK, but I can tell I should be taking a sick day. Already feel crappier.

Here’s a couple pictures because the pic makes the post!

Have a nice day!

Ford Nucleon

I found this yesterday. Thee Ford Nucleon, nuclear powered car. Think of all the shielding needed in the back, protecting us from the reactor, the incredible weight allows the long overhanging front end. Google it. Read about it. It’s really neato mosquito cool and fun.

I was super sick yesterday. I guess I had a 24 hour cold. I went diving sunday, After that I sneezed, Then my head clogged solid and I had a cold. Then last night it just cleared up. I’m almost fully back to normal now.(Cold wise only, still normal crazy!)

Go out and buy a nuclear powered car today!

First Seahorse!

Today I’m having black tea instead of coffee. I have a cold and I would call in sick if it wasn’t for the work today. Inventory.

Yesterday, diving, I saw my first Seahorse ever. It was not as exciting as I had hoped.

Can you see it?

Below are some other pics from yesterday.

Christmas tree worms and a fiddler crab.

Have a good day and a great week!

Checkup Check OK

I got an ok on my checkup. They changed my blood pressure medication. It wasn’t really an “Executive” checkup, just a regular one, like a ditchdigger checkup. Same as I get (almost) every year. I was disappointed. The facility is nice though. And this morning, I’m drinking COFFEE!

Have a happy hump day!

“Executive Checkup”

Health City Hospital, Cayman Islands

Today I’m going to Health City for an “executive physical”. Supposedly a very extensive checkup. It was promoted by our health insurance.

Health City is this new big hospital that continues to grow in the hopes of one day becoming a destination for medical tourism. They have a very good reputation.

So, I have to leave home early to get there, with no breakfast (OR COFFEE!). That’s the whole test, if you can survive with no coffee for halfa day, you’re fine.

I feel like they’re not going to find anything major wrong with me, but you never know. Maybe I should have saved yesterdays post for tomorrow…

Have an extra cuppa coffee for me this morning please!

Back On A Diet

2017 to March 2021 weight graph from my My Fitness Pal app.

I went back on my diet Monday. No bread, no sugar. I guess it was 2016 or 17, I hit 199 pounds. I couldn’t let myself go to fatness of 200 pounds or more, so I gave up sugar and bread. I went down to around 170, less than in high school.

After that, I ended my dietary restrictions, but less sugar and bread than before. But, over the past year or so, the weekly weighings show an unpleasant trend.

Last Monday was 188 pounds, so it’s back to the diet.

Look at the chart below. How you doin?

I’d like to stay between 175 and 180.

My wife just gave me a cupcake to take to work.

Have a FANTASTIC Thursday!

Is it Wednesday?

I’ve lost track of the days.

Yesterday my back started hurting real bad again. Today it seems better.

Here’s a happy beach rock from the beach yesterday.

I’m leaving for work early this morning. I have a friend visiting from Cayman Brac and we’re going to have a cuppa coffee.

So, I gotta  get going.

Happy Summer!

Happy first day of summer! The longest day in the north, Shortest day in the south. First day of winter in tge southern hemisphere.
It starts at 5:34 Cayman time today

I like it better the two days the sun passes directly overhead in Cayman. It only happens in the tropics.

I got up this morning, walked to the sea and swam a little, walked home and showered, dressed, etc etc etc. Now I’m ready to go to work. Well, not ready, but I’m still going. My back still hurts when I bend over. Fon’t know what’s up, never hurt for this long before.

Well, have a good day, a good week and a good SUMMER!

Oh My Achin’ Back!

My back has been hurting real bad lately. It was hurting when I put the steel around the bottom of our fence last week, but then it seemed to go away. Then, it came back. This morning I sneezed and it almost knocked me down. I could barely get my pants on. I can bend backwards but not forwards, and in the mirror, it looks like the curve of my spine is gone. From the top of my back to my butt is a straight line, no curve above the butt.

Yow! It happens occoasionally, but this time is really bad.

In the Navy, I was running down the passageway on he ship (drunk) and tripped on the bottom of a waterproof door frame. I went flying through the air, landed on my chest and slid on the tiles all the way to the next waterproof door. The next morning I could barely get out of bed. Once when I was a kid, I jumped from the roof of a truck down to the bed, where my feet slipped out from under me and I landed perfectly on the end of my spine-bone. That was the greatest pain I ever felt in my life. Once I was cleaning out under the coffee table, sitting cross-legged on the floor. I picked up a stack of magazines and leaned forward to put them under the coffee table, and ka-chink! I hurt my back, very similarly to what is going on now.

I am tempted to go to the doctor if it doesn’t get better soon, as it always has in the past.
