Wrecked somedays

Some days I feel about like the old boat shown above: washed up, broken and sorely in need of TLC. It's the creaks and groans of getting older I suppose. Last night, I went to bed early for a change. My right knee locked up on me just before I left work. I've never had that happen before but it hurt if any weight was put on it. All the years of running may be taking their toll. Add on top of that the feeling like I was going to vomit after I got home and turning in early seemed like a no-brainer. It's amazing how much humility I feel when I'm physically wrecked.

Thankfully, whatever my physical ailments were last night, I feel much better today. It's miraculous what about 12 hours of sleep can do. I'm going to a meeting tonight and then out to eat with some friends from the program. It's raining right now but the weather is supposed to be warm and fair for the weekend. I'm planning on taking Compass Rose out for an over night tomorrow. Hoping for calm seas and a fair breeze.....have a good weekend.


  1. Sleep is the most amazing restorative. Hope you keep on feeling better.

  2. Glad you're feeling better. Why is it my mind is only in my 20's but my body says otherwise? Have a great weekend!

  3. You're an intelligent man, so I'm sure you're gonna see a doctor about that knee.

  4. it's amazing what a good night's sleep can cure...

    hope your knee's okay and that you'll have a super weekend!

  5. there's something for you on my side... hope you like it.

  6. hmm...trying to come up with a witty comment on that one but I can't think you are still far better off than an old boat.

    Have you ever tried acupuncture for your knee or anything else?
    I tell everyone to try
