January 26 – Destroyed my Thumb


            I shoveled the walk and driveway three times so far this season and I destroyed my left thumb joint.  Apparently, when you are my age you automatically have arthritis in your thumb joint.  It is just a given.  It never bothered me until I made like a snowplow with the shovel handle and pushed and dumped snow into a pile.  After two hours of that, it kind of hurt.  Then again and again and ouch! The doctor gave me a shot which hurt worse than the actual injury. I am never doing that again.
