hit by the multiple sclerosis truck

just a glancing blow, but still, hit by a truck is hit by a truck. i felt great yesterday, but today i am achy, tired, and, as pogo used to say, “frazzy.”

i spend sunday morning in portland (managed to get probably the best parking space in the city, so i had to hang out for a while) with iko, my 1936-era ikoflex camera, just wandering around the block taking pictures. i shot 4 rolls of film, tho i have not processed them yet, so i don’t know if the morning was anything more than a nice walk around town – which is nice enough. ’bout wore me out, but it was a beautiful day (and the best parking spot in town!) (and free on sunday!) if i ever process the film, get my scanner hooked up, and find a copy of photoshop, AND if the pictures are good, i’ll post some to captured light. might be a while tho.

still waiting to investigate the adaptive sports – biking, skiing (tho i think i am beyond the weight limit for the sit-ski dealie), and maybe cane-dao.

  1. The longer I have MS, the harder that truck seems to hit me. I am active one day, the next is a day of rest. If I try for two days in a row of activity or work, it is always a bad choice.

    My idea for your PIX problem – go to Walgreens or Walmart (or anyplace that lets you go to their website to get your pix, then you can upload them to your website without scanner install.

    Just a thought.


  2. I agree with Anne. A really good day will usually cost the next.

    It’s sort of like the dirty joke about “How can you tell if you had a really good time last night?”

    On second thought, let’s not go there.
