Back from TX  

Was wonderful to see Krissy and the girls. Things went surprisingly smoothly with the TX family. Was a little guilty to not see more of Ben (one of my brothers), but he was in law school most of the time. Apparently Baylor trains them all to be litigators, no matter what they'll actually be doing. He apparently is more into municipal law stuff, but perhaps he'll go litigate afterward, dunno.

Brought home a 60lb duffel despite a hurt foot. I checked it, but still had to haul it to and from. I looked a bit like an ant dragging a caterpillar with it hoisted up on my shoulders. (Looked heavier than it was.)

Still doing various unpacking and related bits, of course, but I'm mostly settled in again.

Sounds like it was great! What's wrong with your foot?

I get a periodic flare-up in the joint just under my big toe. It's happened a few times now -- four maybe?

I *think* it's some kind of strain in the ligaments, which I keep re-injuring by walking.

Otherwise it's gout or something, though that wasn't clearly true when I went and got a blood test the first time.

Either way, it sucks. Takes around two weeks to heal, and hurts most of that time. Especially when I walk on it.

gout? try bing cherries, or cherry juice. you may have to lay off the meat and booze. that was always the hardest part for my dad!

I'll give it a try! Do dried work, or do they need to be fresh or juice?
