It’s amazing! I am a walker again. Thanks to the aortic valve replacement last month. The cane is gone. I walk!

Not as far as I would like yet. I am taking things a step at a time. Do not not want to push my luck.

Yesterday, I began with a four block walk to visit Fred Klein. He lives two blocks from me. So it was two short blocks each way. A month ago, I could not have done it even with the cane. The two blocks in getting to his home would have wasted me.

It was back to Publix afterwards. Publix has been my real test. With the cane, I could only do one aisle one way. Then at least a 10 minute rest before the return trip down the aisle. Now I can walk the whole store! Every aisle! No rest! I only spend around $30 each time. I want to return more frequently to prove to myself that I can do it.

Saw Steve Thompson for the first time in two weeks. He was outside cleaning the shrubbery around the house. He is recovering well from his recent hernia surgery.

Measles were on the increase last year. They are on the increase in the U.S. even faster this year. Faster also world wide.

Measles are one of the world’s most contagious diseases. Best defense – get vaccinated!

This year so far the number of cases in the U.S. has nearly doubled from all of last year. Reason enough to be concerned.

Most cases involve unvaccinated Americans who traveled to the Middle East and Asia and brought measles back to the U.S.

Writing a blog for me is an interesting venture. My system for years has been to research, discover what turns me on, and write about that material. My time spent researching are hours. Some days I come up with too much material. Required to pick and choose as a result. Other times, nothing appeals to me regardless of the length of time spent searching. Those days, I tend to writ less.

This morning is one of those times.  Three hours of research, and all that appealed to me was the measles issue. I gave up researching after three hours as a result. Ergo, this morning’s blog ends here.

Enjoy your day!
