That's My Story...

Great conditions - warm weather, enough sun balance by the necessary spring rain, lengthening daylight - and I'm missing an opportunity.

Tendonitis in my shoulder flared up this week, pretty much keeping me out of the shop and away from Gardens. Can't get much done with one hand.

Hopefully the prescribed meds and rest do their magic and get me whole enough soon so I can get back to work.

On the plus side, a new bicycling buddy, who also sails a Flying Scot, invited me to visit a local sailing club for their spring work-day. I couldn't join in the fun of setting boat lifts (darn it all!) but I was able to meet a bunch of people and garnered several invites to bring my Goat Island Skiff out to the club for some sailing. The club features fleets of Flying Scots and Sunfish (which, of course, race as one-designs) but they also offer mixed-fleet handicap racing, so I may have found a new home base for sailing my GIS.

Oh, the story… Sitting on the back porch the other evening, I swatted a mosquito with my left hand and that motion triggered the tendonitis… yeah, pretty lame but that's my story… and I'm stickin' to it!


  1. Sorry to hear Bob. Hope the pain and discomfort leaves soon so you can get back on Gardens.

  2. Thanks, Rik. The pain has eased considerably but my range of motion (limited by recurring pain) is no where near what it was following PT earlier this year. I'll follow-up with my doctor.
