...when I look at this photo. It's one of the ladders I had to ascend during the trip to Catalina.
PARENTHETICAL IT'S-WORSE-THAN-IT-LOOKS THOUGHT: Bear in mind that the photo was taken from nearly six feet above the (concrete) floor....
In fairness, I have to admit my friend J., who is in charge of this project and has been for some years -- and is, by the way, a couple years older than I am -- has no problem with it, and in fact is quite happy to scramble up it...
I made it on Sunday. I sure as hell couldn't today: currently, my back only hurts when I move or breathe. Or sit still.
I'll see the doctor on Friday. I just hope it doesn't lead to more pills instead of less. This is no fun.
Being immobile stinks, Jim.
