For the first time in about a year and a half, we had a Saturday where we could just do what we want. Went to Mt. Dora, small town in the next county, for lunch. Just wondered around for a bit after.

I repaired our treadmill & put .01 mile on it just to make sure the repair worked. (My wife uses it, not me)

I later baked some banana bread & probably walked another .01 mile around the kitchen gathering ingredients.

Yes. Going on prednisone now. My BP also shot up to 140/100 starting Tuesday. Sometimes down to low 90s diastolic. Its been a bit crazy. Ive never had BP issues always controlled with meds. Docs are worthless.

Dont want to bring anyone down but I read threads like this and it makes me realize how ****ed up my life is. I would give anything to just do stuff.

Hopefully Ill hit remission soon. Im going to go to a liquid only diet stating last night.

Instead of Driving 25 miles to Chicago for fine Dining, Drove 2 hours and 15 minutes to Indianapolis . . .

Indy was ghost town, no tourists, only a few others dining out, only people in streets were the homeless . . .

This New Normal Sucks, bon appetite'

I know people with crohns, one just had surgery because of it.
Kinda puts a damper on entertaining folks for hours.
It's terrible, I can empathize.


Bolded:
As terrible as you have it; keep in mind somewhere there's a quadriplegic saying the same thing, and somewhere there is a young man and woman burying a child.

Creeper handle extensions. The creeper on a Cub cadet has a low and high range. The early "Narrow Frame" tractors had a lower tunnel over the driveshaft than the later Narrow Frames. This extension made the previously made creeper handles work on the taller tunneled lawn and garden tractors.

The parts are 9/16" in diameter, the reduced diameter is 3/8", are 3-1/8" long and both ends have 3/8-24 NF threads.
