UPDATE 5 May
Even times of pain can be amusing.
For example, I was contemplating putting on my socks. For those of you who have experienced back pain, this is not a small undertaking.
Part of my Socks Plot™ involved the use of one of those long shoe horns that hotels sometimes provide. Having carefully maneuvered my components into what I deemed the optimal mis en place, I launched my cunning plan. Just as I began, across the room an alarm went off on my mobile phone with the Mission Impossible ringtone. The perfect timing compensated for the additional pain that came from laughing out loud.
BTW… for travel, I highly recommend Fox River socks, which are milspec and which dry really fast if you rinse them out frequently. The black crew dress liner is my summer go-to sock when on the road. US HERE – UK HERE

I had hoped to avoid this.
Friends, I think that with the help of antibiotics I have beaten the crud that infested me. My eye is also better.
I did something to hurt my back. It’s not a little discomfort, but rather drive air from the lungs pain when doing things like … moving. I spent today in a chair.
May I ask your prayers for swift and complete relief?
This is ridiculous. So far this trip is going well for most people, a few have had relatively controllable issues. I, on the other hand, have been beset.
However, it is also a 1st Friday and helped my determination even to figure out how to get out of the aforementioned chair and even attempt the putting on of socks.
