This morning’s blog will be sweet and simple. I threw my back out. The pain is horrendous. Spasm. I cannot sit, stand or lie down.

I have a bad back. Every 3-4 years it goes out. It did again last night.

I was doing nothing. Had just returned home from dinner with Lisa and the family. I was in the bedroom changing my clothes and boom! It hit!

The night was not bad. I took Advil, the one that makes you sleep. I slept. Need Motrin. Do not have any. Looking for some one to make the drug store run. I will die if I have to do it!

Funny part is Lisa has had a bad back all week. There must have been a transference from daughter to father last night!

Boston heart wrenching! What more can be said. Man’s inhumanity continues.

Worked all day yesterday. Writing.

Dinner at Lisa’s.

No Robert and Ally till dinner time. I had arrived early. They were at band practice. A new one to me. A bunch of kids getting together at someone’s home.

When they did get home, I asked what they were playing. Robert said the drums. He has a bongo drum that he does well with. Ally told me she did not play any instrument, but that she was the assistant manager of the band. What does the assistant manger do, I asked. Hires and fires people, she said.

I can see what is happening. Ally is one year younger than the rest. The other band members are all boys. They are putting her at the end of the line. Typical male chauvinism.

Topic of discussion at the dinner table was Jake.

Jake has been to Dog Beach twice. Dogs have their own beach in Key West. He does not like the ocean.

Jake came home the second time loaded with sand. Lisa decided he needed a bath. His first one.

Jake did not like the bath.

Lisa and the kids had Jake in the bathtub. He jumped out. They closed the bathroom door thereafter so he would not run around the house wet. He kept yelping while they bathe him. Apparently, Jake does not take to water.

Did my blog talk radio show last night. Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou. Two topics discussed extensively. The Boston bombings and the Pope and nuns. The show was archived and is available 24 hours a day. You might want to listen to it.

Enjoy your day! I have a feeling mine is going to be hell!

  1. Hi Lou, Over the years I too have had. painful muscle spasms in my back. I went to chiropractors who lined me up with a series of visits. Did not alleviate the painf.

    Eventually I found the one thing that always solved the problem: Flexoril. It relaxed my muscles. In a few days all was well again.

  2. My back is also prone to severe lower pain. When it hots I always wear my back brace for support and to me this clears it up faster. Flexoril also works but it makes me a bit goofy..though worth the pain going away. At 6′ 7″ and well aged I understand the supreme misery of a back out of whack.

  3. Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Bless you
