    Looks like home to me. We've gotten a lot of frozen fog, which causes that white frosting on everything. Looks nice, but it will take down trees! Good to see you back again.

    I was trolling in Walgreen's the other day for some kind of knee brace when I saw these patches you put over areas that ache, some were huge, others just large, and still others, small enough to fit around your ring finger. I wonder if a medium sized one the size that would fit over a shoulder blade and then some would benefit your shoulder's inflammation, Foxfyre. I bet it would. They didn't have one that would give range to movement on a knee that I could tell, but I could envision one of those fitting over a shoulder before I knew you had paint there. Some of them last for 12 hours, but heck, you can't take it with you, so you might as well buy some comfort, I was thinking if that ever happened to me. Other helpers might be to seal around windows and doors where cold air can seep in and make your inflamed parts uncomfortable and turn the heater up a couple of notches if the stuffy feeling you get from too-warm rooms is less bad than the comfort warmth brings sometimes to the aches of arthritis in the wintertime. Also might want to change from 60-watt light to 75 or even 100 for the cheer to the soul that bright lights have been shown scientifically to people who get cheerless in the dark of long nights of wintertime. In fact, some people can shelve their antidepressants if they simply turn more lights on in the house. Hope this helps:

    Saturday morning....Always liked the Ant and Aardvark, with and the impersonations of Dean Martin and Jackie Mason in its main characters.

    Let the cartoon begin!

    Thanks for the suggestion but I have tried pretty much everything including the lidocaine patches but they didn't really help much. And I don't like taking any kind of medicine that I don't really need.

    They don't really know what causes adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder syndrome) and there is no known treatment for it that works for everybody. I personally just classify it as one of those auto immune things until they come up with something better. It does limit some use of my left arm but not to the level I would call handicapping. Like I can't reach up to a high shelf or reach far out to the left with it, but nothing that is any serious problem. And the pain is minimal compared to what it once was and it doesn't hurt more much more often than it does. I could continue to get the cortisone shots but figure we don't need that expense for no more benefit than I get from them and no telling what else that does to my body. I still do physical therapy pretty regularly with it to ensure it doesn't get worse but after several years now, I am resigned to living with it.

    CBD is the oil from cannabis where the THC is removed...you get the same benefits without the high.
    I HIGHLY recommend Arnicare. Has the Arnica plant in it...which soothes soreness. It works. Trust me. I use it on my ankles, shoulders, hips,toes, wrists due to rhuematoid arthritis. I sleep well. Oh, and it works great for muscle spasms..which I have been getting lately in my legs which are EXTREMELY painful. Soon as I massage that stuff in...its gone.

    arnicare - Google Search

    Arnicare Pain Relieving Cream | Arnicare for Pain Relief and Bruising

    https://www.amazon.com/T-Relief-Pain-Relief-cream-114g/dp/B0006MQ47A?th=1

    T-Relief works very well too. ^

    And now I have to go finish lunch preparation for our weekly luncheon and a movie with Aunt Betty and Dana. Plus the Cowboys play in the late playoff game today.
