Addled-up here boss


Well this is a sumbitch.  After reinstalling
Win 8 (in a pique I deleted  it a month ago-without a reliable backup because that's how pissed off I was). I used to do that all the time, and it was a piece of cake. No more. 

Just a month ago I finished the June Mahjong Challenge (3 puzzles a day) with 100% for the third month in a row, although I did have a real problem with one, and took me at least a dozen tries. I really knew something was amiss when I started the June challenge beginning Jube 17th. Right off the bat I had problems with even some "Easy" ones.  July ended with three unfinished ga,es. Now, this is all about memory. You have to remember what tiles you missed, amd where they were. I can't do that in any depth now.  WTFF? 

Mosup says it's sugar.

Starting the New Year, I had a case of flu that lasted the better part of a month.  My daily 10,000 Fitbit steps a day plummeted to 6000.  Then I had what I thought was a torn knee cartilege.  No.  I have arthritiis in both knees.  Sawbones wants to do kneecaps;  No way, not while I can still walk and two Aleve's twice a day keeps them servicable, but  my steps went down to under 5000. 

The poison ivy that turned into contact dermatitis was the killer. I spend the better part of the day watching movies and snacking.   I'm putting on weight which puts me in dangerwarms MoSupof getting Type 2 -- what the hell, I can't think of it (this is in real time)  ...  !Type 2 Diabetes, or worse.  My brain isn't snapping right.

Diabetes is the worse disease you can have because it attacks every part of your body. That prospect scared the hell out of me enopught that I got my harmonica and began building my lung capacity back up(3 pack a day smoker before I quit 12 years ago).  Harmonica playing is only thing that works.  I'm learning Dixie.  It's already paying dividends
rode my bike yesterday.

Today I turned another corner.  After watching Mountain Men for 6 straight hours I was really pumped! Turned  the AC  up to 75° (from 72
°), the better to swaet. Went out to the garage, found my axe, and sharpened it!  Hoo-Rah!   I shot a mouse in the garage too.  I'm back!  Now, where that Eskimo woman I'm supposed to fuck?  Wait ... is that right?
