Well, the news is good.

I went to the doctor this morning and good news !! Apparently there's no torn meniscus in my knee.  She believes it's just a sprained ligament that goes around my knee.  She recommended I take it easy, keep using the ice pack from time to time, keep wearing the brace, take the anti inflammatory's and it should gradually get better.   I did go to Curves after visiting the doctor but only used the machines that didn't involve my legs.  Then I went to Fred Meyer grocery shopping but that was an ordeal.  By the time I got home, got the groceries in the house and put everything away, I was ready for the ice bag and a couple Tylenol

I still have all the boxes of stuff sitting around from the sale.  But I'm going to take my time putting it away.  I want to baby my knee because it's only 11 days until we sail away.  I don't care if this stuff is still sitting here when I get home...eventually it will get put away.

Speaking of my car port sale...yesterday I got an email from an AOL journaler (who shall remain nameless), who lives about 60 miles north of me and she said that her and this other AOL journaler (who shall also remain nameless) were considering "sneaking up" on me at my sale.  But the one who lives here in my area was busy all weekend , so they didn't make it.  Well, this morning I saw the one that lives here in my town...I laughingly told her I had heard of their plan...apparently a camera was going to be involved if they would  have made it over to my house.  Oh...some of these AOL Journalers are sneaky people. Actually, I wish they could have come over...that would have been fun!   Lanny, I think you know both of them...

Well, I hope to start reading journals again.  I need to do some heavy duty catching up.  And hopefully I can catch up and get somethings down around here too.

  I have three brithday's comeing up this weekend...all on the same day, August 12th..my son will be 36, my son-in law will be 52 and Bob's daughter, Hope,  in Pasadena will be 41.  My son & SIL are local but we need to get a package off to Hope in the next day or so. And Bob's so proud of himself.  Hope has been wanting the DVD of "The African Queen" and hasn't been able to find it anywhere.  And believe me she knows where to look.  Well, we were able to order it at the local Fred Meyer Store and he recieved it in the mail other day. So now it's just a matter of getting it wrapped ,added to a couple goodies we got for her and getting it mailed.

Our town is starting the new "red light" camera enforcement. I don't know about where you live but I have seen as many as 4 or 5 cars going thru a red light at some intersections.  Law enforcement will send warning letters to those who go thru red lights for now but starting September 4th, those warning letters will be replaced with tickets for $101 for each offense. I'm glad they are finally cracking down on this very dangerous habit.

I hope everyone had a good weekend.....Linda

Hey Linda, glad your knee is nothing too serious.  I'm still down here at my daughers, will be home late tomorrow afternoon.  Sounds like your sale wasn't much more profitable than mine was.  Later, Joni

Okay - you said that I read your journal all of the time, but never comment.
Here goes.  
I am sooooo happy that it isn't anything too serious with your knee.  Just please take it easy so that you can enjoy the cruise.  I want you to be able to enjoy all of the excursions that you showed me last week.

Hi Linda, good news about your knee, let's hope it's back to normal by the time you go on holiday!  It's my youngest daughter's birthday on August 12th too, she'll be 25, bless her! She has just had her baby boy, well he's six days old today, and she is absolutely besotted with him, as are her two little girls!  We have red-light cameras in some places here too, it's a good idea. Love, Pat   http://journals.aol.co.uk/pm71blackfen/ramblings-from-pat/

So glad to hear your knee injury, while painful, is not too serious!
Hmmmm...I don't think I realized a camera would be involved...but knowing the "other journaler" I should have expected it!   She's gonna get me one of these days!  Of course Lanny knows both of us; I think he's been trying to ditch me for years!  LOL!  Wish it had turned out better!  J

Happy Birthdays all around!!
We had the red light cameras with $250 tickets but after a couple of years, they took them all down....

Wonderful news about your knee, now listen to your doctor and take it easy.  We have cameras at the worst intersections but it surely doesn't seem to deter people from running them anyway.
