So today Trump nominated a judge who supposedly interprets the constitution as originally intended, and not what someone wants it to say. That's good for the country.
I'm sure the left disagrees.
Let the games begin.
The flight path of a projectile
So I saw a knee Doc 8 days ago and he sent me home with instructions for some exercising. I still have some swelling but it looks to be getting a little better. These exercises have shown me that muscles in my my right leg never fully recovered after hip replacement surgery 8 years ago. Those are also showing signs of improvement.
In the middle of June my horse stumbled and fell with me. Her shoulder was on my lower right leg, bending or twisting (maybe both) my knee in a way it was not intended to move. Immediately after and for almost 3 months all I had was a little tightness, but no pain in that knee.
For the last couple of days I feel the tightness in the morning, but that changes as the day progresses. I know feel soreness and tightness behind the knee when straight, and just above the knee cap when bent. Sometimes on the inside of the knee as well. I'm also getting what feels like a liquid bubble near the right lower edge of the knee cap. The pain is not what I'd call intense, but it has me a little concerned.
This morning I cleaned stalls and went after grain for the horses. I had planned on going to the range afterward, but changed my mind. The knee seems to be getting worse not better.
I'm getting it checked out in a couple of days
After our trip to Virginia I've decided to clean and lube all of my semi-auto firearms. So far I've attacked both of my carry guns, the bedroom 12Ga, the Keltec sub2000, and today the AR15. Next will be the SKS and CETME followed by several handguns.
I've been negligent this past year. Time to maintain the tools.
The Boss and I went for a very short horse ride in the park this morning. Was our first in 3 or 4 months. It's been that long because of her lower back/knee issue and the heat this summer. In our old age, neither one of us tolerates temperatures much above 75F.
The Boss wanted to keep it short so as to take it easy on her back Take it slow and see how things go.
The horses weren't too bad. They were a bit like the first ride in the spring.
This last Sunday we returned from a trip to northern Virginia. Never been there before. Beautiful countryside and full of Trump signs. I was a bit surprised by the signs because the state government is Democrat controlled.
We went to help our granddaughter and family move to King George, Virginia. Her hubby was recently discharged from the airforce where he was an explosive Tec. The only civilian job readily available was basically the same position with a civilian contractor doing the same thing. Good money, but deployments to other countries 6 months at a time.
Instead of coming right home we spent 6 days at the base of the blue ridge mountains. Other than visiting historical places, we just hung out and enjoyed the scenery.
I might be getting paranoid in my old age, or just more informed and cautious. I usually travel with a carry gun and 1 spare magazine. This time I had 2 carry guns, 1 extra Mag for each and my Keltec Sub2000 with two 30 round magazines. Thankfully there was no need for any of that as we avoided all big cities.
