Nick’s still under the weather so you’re stuck with me again.

Nick had an appointment with a chiropractor this morning, hoping to get some relief from his back pain. But after checking him over, she thought he was passing a kidney stone and she didn’t want to treat him until that was looked at. So he and Miss Terry were off to the ER to get it checked out.

But after a lot of tests and a CT scan, they said no kidney stone. Supposedly the culprit is now a pinched nerve. So he got some more pain pills and another appointment with the chiropractor tomorrow.

So one of us will be back tomorrow with the latest update.

Just a short blog today to give you a quick update. As I mentioned a few days ago, I have lived with chronic back pain for most of my adult life, a result of an injury I got when I was in the Army. It usually flares up a couple of times a year and […]

Dixon, Illinois is a nice little town with a lot of history. Bisected by the Rock River, Dixon was settled in 1828 as a ferry crossing. Four years later, in 1832, a young Abraham Lincoln joined the Illinois militia at Fort Dixon during the Black Hawk War. Today, the Lincoln Monument State Memorial marks the […]

We had a great time showing Terry’s parents, Pete and Bess Weber, around our area and letting them get a taste of what life is like here on the central coast of Florida. It’s a lot different from their home back in Arizona! We have no interest in all the plastic theme parks put up […]

Born in the small settlement of Florida, Missouri on November 30, 1835, Samuel Clemens was the sixth of seven children born […]

Depending on who you talk to, Roaring Twenties gangster Charlie Birger was either a cold blooded killer who made a fortune with bootleg whiskey, gambling, and prostitutes, or a kind and benevolent gentleman who supplied his poor neighbors with coal to keep their families warm in the winter and food to keep them fed. In […]

Besides pilots and […]
