Definitely a love hate relationship with the steroids. I've only had one injection into a joint and that was into the left SI (sacroiliac) joint when I had a flair in it a couple years back.

I love that it makes the pain go away but hate that it tends to make you forget that there is a problem in the joint that the steroids is masking so you go out and abuse the joint some more. Sigh, it is really a no win situation.

@Granny Hatchet ! You wanted to see some of my artwork. Cap has seen some of these on the Old Folks Home but there are more to see now. One has a funny story attached to it.

Two nights ago we were out in our hobby room with the cattle dogs. One of the boys, Ben, was lying in my lap. Suddenly he started sitting up and staring at my art table. I got him to lie back down and he set back up again. The second time some of the hair on the back of his neck bristled and his ears shot forward. This time I followed his gaze and this is what he was staring at:

I tend to do a lot of detailed art and am trying to learn 'freestyle' looser styled watercolors. This one is of our 21 year old diabetic kitty, Johnny Cash. When I showed my husband what Ben was staring at, he laughed and said, well, can't say it isn't a good likeness.

These are Dutch Pours, a trio of water pieces that I call 'Splash!'

Some works in progress. The dragon fly is about half done, the sunrise and moon rise need more stars added to them.

And just for fun, here I am with my attack Falcon/silver duck wing barnyard cross cockerel Izzy. He loves to ride around on my shoulder and came in the house with me to get something that I needed out in the coop. He was the perfect gentleman and didn't poop on anything while inside.

The cats thought he was fascinating....yeah right.

This is one of two portraits I did for a friend of my husband's who owns French bull dogs. Interesting subjects and this type of sketching is my passion.

Okay, so big enough post to last a week or two? Just kidding.

Sigh, I will try to remember that the shoulder problem is masked, not fixed. Maybe The Kid will clean the coop for me. Not betting on it, though, he is mad at me. I yelled at him for being a jerk and now he wants ME to apologize. Probably not happening, so we are at an impasse right now. Maybe one of us will grow up at some point. Right now it's not me. Move over, Granny, I am gonna sit by you for a while. Whimper. Lol.

Thank you Big Blue!

I just entered a sketch in the poultry art contest. Not expecting to win. There is some pretty stiff competition but still fun to see what is out there and add to the gallery.

I just came in from feeding and watering. CRAP! It's snowing! :hmm:ducA lot! They weren't calling for that in the forecast. Only rain but it didn't get out of the 30s today. It was covering the ground by the time I got done. I had to stop and remind myself that it is November after all.

My mom used to say that when kids are little, they step on your toes, when they grow up they step on your heart.

Don't worry. He'll get over it. :hugs He probably did something to deserve your wrath. They usually do.
