Three score and ten or more

Vacation is almost over.

We have been here on Hilton Head Island since Sunday.  I have several friends here that we intended to call, and visit or take to dinner, but we really have just “vegged out”.  We haven’t been to the pool at all (Last time we were here we did and hour of water aerobics every day),  We have shopped at the discount malls,  wandered around, and parked in front of books and of the TVs in every room (except the bathrooms).  We really couldn’t swim, because Janet just had surgery on her hand and the Dr.forbid her from getting her cast wet. 

We bought a cover up for the cast, but the one time we tried it is was not successful in keeping the cast dry.  Oh well.

I discovered just before we left home that I have shingles on my legs and some very sensitive parts of my anatomy, but a dose pack of Prednisone has kept it from being a serious problem.  (The Prednisone dose runs out tomorrow and I am a little nervous about the following few days.  We agreed to listen to some time share pitches while we are here and got a wonderful meal at the Skull Creek Boathouse out of one of them.  The saleslady was a little disgusted  at our obvious lack of intent to buy anything and suggested that the next time we are contacted so see a resort we should say no.   This,  in spite of the fact that she stated three times in her initial presentation that most of her prospects  had stated that they had no intention of buying anything, and usually did so anyway.   The fact is, that we have gone  to a lot of such pitches and have spent more money in this business than is wise.  (We just put joint will power into force.

We really needed the no pressure relaxation that we have had most of the time, and we will get back into the exercise routine after we get home Sunday.   (Monday will be tiring and probably a little painful.)  I have been ruminating about a few serious topics for blog posts, though I confess that my readership has shrink so much that it sometimes feels futile.  I really am writing for those in my family who may still be interested in what I have to say/

My sister had singles many years ago. She was in terrible pain. Since then they have discovered things that can help. I don't blame you for being nervous without the meds. The mention of singles sends shivers up her spine.
