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.

  2. It is nice to have the insurance pay for your shots, very worthwhile.
    Love the quilts, they sure keep you both busy.

  3. Love the black and white one! Inventive use of a pool table Ray!

  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.
