Hope it went well :) I can relate to typing one-handed (my left)!

I certainly can't complain. It hurts a bit but that will pass. Serious hats off to you, my Antipodean friend.

Hope that pain passes quick. My carer had hand surgery, and I think she needed 3 weeks from memory.

Three weeks in a cast and 3-4 months full recovery apparently.

Physio too?
Rachel Caldecott-Thornton
Rachel Caldecott-Thornton
yup. starting exercises to reduce swelling in other fingers already. Like trying to move stubby, fat, orange sausages (orange still from the swab.... like having Trump's fingers at the end of my arm... horrific thought).

But the cast is cool. Really space age. Moulded to me (heat formed something or other) with a knob to release or increase the pressure depending on swelling. Good design. Very Star Trek or perhaps Iron Man (although black, not red, sadly). Talking of which, I might watch an Avengers movie now.

You like the Tour de France, I like Marvel.

phew! I knew you were a Star Trek fan and we certainly agree on how well cast Chris Pine is for a young Kirk. :)

RK Capps
yep, seen them all :) Sorta obligatory with teenagers ;)

I introduced my kids to them! Good films to bond over. Star Wars too of course.

We had our first shared home movie session (ever) two nights ago. Used to when they were kids, but not as teens. The Lost World (the second Jurassic Park) was the movie that did the trick.

Good one. The later ones aren't worth much, even though I like Chris Pratt (so much better in Guardians of the Galaxy - one of my top 10 movies).

Darn it, I might just watch that now. Don't feel like writing my own stuff now. Bye.

I love Guardians of the Galaxy! And Groot :)

Hey, RK, have you seen Hell or High Water with Chris Pine and Jeff Bridges?
