Back in the saddle

I have not posted in awhile, but I want to let everyone know that I am doing ok.

Some highlights:
I've ditched my splint and have not had my finger wrapped for several days.
(I still have the tunnel catheter and am getting my nightly dose of IV antibiotic).

I also went on a short ride (down the block and back) on one of the cruisers last week.
Riding is fine, but U-Turns are a lot scarier.
AND I drove my dads car!!!

The short drive with both of my parents reminding me to signal before turns made me feel like I was 15 again.  Now I'm reviewing the DMV manual to make sure I can make it through any testing they will require for my renewal.

I am also trying to figure out how I'm going to start the car.
(The long-term solution is to get a key less ignition vehicle, but not sure I'm going to buy something just yet).

This could be a problem

Renewing my drivers license might be more challenging than I thought.

Can you spot why?

See below for the answer

I think that this might blow their minds.

Maybe he's onto something

The cure for everything is salt water - sweat, tears or the sea.”  
 Isak Dinesen.

The Sea
I haven't been able to be in the water for the last 3 months due to open wounds.

I've shed my share of these, but never found them to be a satisfactory cure.

I have been waiting to donate some of this for a long time, but until this week I have been told not to work out because an elevating my blood pressure could overwhelm the tissue making up my temporary thumb. 

Yesterday I made it up to the club and sat on a bike for a full hour.
I was not surprised at how good it felt to sweat, but was glad that I could pull it off without any pain in my hip.

Hopefully I will get to start doing this (and more) on a regular basis.
