Ladies and Gentlemen and Amos:

I have returned from an evaluation session in Physical Therapy. The therapist has given me a series of "passive" exercises to do and I will be doing them as they are little or no trouble and take no equipment save a flat surface and gravity.

This will continue for four weeks, at which time I will be in for more weeks of rather more difficult therapy. One of those is the "Slapper Push-Up" where you do a one-handed push-up with the hand on the injured side, slap yourself roundly on both cheeks (your choice of cheeks) while "up", catch yourself, and lower yourself for a repeat.

Monday afternoon, after PT, Pat and I head to Missoula, via Dillon, for the 100th Annual Conference and Centennial Birthday Party of the Pacific Northwest Library Association. I shall not be out of touch whilst gone, and I shall be doing the PNLA exercies des ans: the grasp, lift, and elbow bend (which is done holding a glass of the liquid of your choice).
