Good Thing For Insurance


Riverton, Utah        High 93 Low 64

It was hot yesterday. Today there are a few clouds and it is a some cooler. I hope it lasts.

Today I went to see the doctor for my annual wellness check for the Insurance Company. While I was there I told him about the pain in my right knee so he ordered x-ray to see if there was any sign of arthritis.

Later they called back and said the x-rays showed some arthritis but there were signs of ligament damage. I don’t remember doing anything to my knee, but when I first got the pain it was so bad that I had trouble sleeping. The pain has been getting less and the doctor told me that it fit with having had an injury, even though I don’t remember getting hurt. On Thursday I get to go back and get a shot which is supposed to lessen the pain and allow the ligaments to heal.

We also talked about getting a shingles shot and I decided to have one although 15 years ago I had shingles. While I was at Walmart they suggested a flu shot since the new vaccine just came in. I also got a tetanus shot because I didn’t know when I last had one.

Like I said at first, it’s a good thing for Insurance since my co-pay for everything today was zero. Cindy looked and one of the shots was $230.00 and the other two were over $50.00 each.

Cindy took some pictures of the quilts we have got finished. Some still have to have the binding sewed down. She also got a picture of me using the pool table for a cutting table. I use the ping pong top on the table with lots of the large cutting matts. We have got way more use out of the table as a cutting table than it ever did as a pool table.






I use the weights to hold my long cutting guide.
The peach look like they might not be too far from getting ripe. I noticed that the birds have started eating some of them.


Thanks for visiting.

  1. Your quilts are gorgeous! Love the idea of using the ping pong & pool tables for quilting. My husband made a very long picnic table years ago, and it works great for quilting.

  4. So no more climbing ladders for awhile? Jim hurt a rib or two yesterday and sure does slow him down. Take care of that knee. I got my shingles shot before they were covered by insurance. But I thought it was worth it.
