It’s that time again! Melanie has a few questions that she wants answered. She also has all the rules, badges, questions etc. that you need to play along, so why don’tcha? And awaaaaaaaay we go…
What’s the tallest building you’ve been to the top of? The Sears Tower in Chicago. I’ve also been to the top (or as close as they let you) of the Prudential Building and the Hancock Center in Chicago and the Empire State Building in New York, which the Sears Tower calls "Shorty." By the way, while the Sears Tower has changed hands, it’ll always be the Sears Tower to those of us who lived in Chicago.
Here’s a cheery little video showing someone climbing the TV antennas on top of the Sears Tower to maintain them. Not recommended if you have vertigo.
What do you do to keep fit? Nothing.
What’s your jack-o-lantern carved to look like? I don’t do Halloween.
Do you have hope or have you lost it? In some cases, I’ve lost it: those are the things that the stroke made it impossible to do, such as drive a car, play guitar, write with a pen, etc. On everything else, I’m pretty good.
I have this sore on the back of my leg that makes it almost impossible to wear shoes for any great length of time. Seems it’s related to the lymphedema in my leg, which is a chronic problem that I can fix temporarily by having lymphatic drainage. Anyway, I went to the doctor, and they were able to do away with the pain, and the doctor has changed my water pill from HCTZ to Lasix and lowered the dosage of one of my blood pressure meds. I’m grateful that I got a chance to see him and that I’ll soon be on my way to straightening out the lymphedema issue. Although I wonder why he didn’t just handle this the last time I saw him… anyway, I’m grateful that we’re on the right track now.
See you in the funny papers!
