I’m a year shy of sixty. Just to remind me that I’m getting old, I’m home with a stomach bug . . . Well okay, so anyone of any age can get a bug, but I sure am feeling my age these days with all sorts of strange aches, pains, and my arthritis getting worse. And yes, besides Gout, I have arthritis in my hands and one shoulder joint.

Still, I’m healthy in mind and spirit and that’s what counts!

If I had one wish, though, it would be for all of my teeth back, nice and strong. Warn your kids, everybody, to take dear care of their choppers.
