When you got a twist in your back.

I twisted my back somehow, a little while back. It is a sharp pain, when I move a certain way. I took tylenol 3 for the last day, and today I decided to cut it off.

The first day the pain could be felt right away as I turned. The second day, it got a little better. Now, this morning, the third day, it appears to be better. But, I will try to avoid strenuous exercise for awhile.

I remember going to the doctor, many years ago for this.  He gave me some pain medication, and told me to rest for awhile. That was it. He could see the redness, stiffness.  I feel for those who deal with this, every day. It is an incredibly unpleasant, dilapidated feeling.

This was, from lifting on a 600 lb metal shed. We got it from sears, and my cousin asked me to help him load it on his truck. I was thinking that, of course, young and full of piss and vinegar, could lift it no problem on the back of the truck. I bent down. I put my fingers under the huge package near the ground, where the top was lying next to the tail gate of the truck. I forced up with my legs and my back with my legs 90 degrees to the floor. When I got to the top, I could just push it on the truck. I had a hard time, to walk to the drivers side of the truck.  Then I helped to unload it. All I could do, is slide it off with my cousin. I grimaced and took the pain, as I pretended not to be hurt. I was, and could feel the burning sensation. I do not believe there is much worse of a pain than that of a bad back.

It went away. But, every so often, it does come back somewhat. Not as bad, as of course the first encounter with the pain. The problem is, for those people who have it consistently, the drugs that you may take to remedy it are very addictive. Sometimes the medications can do more harm than good, perhaps.

Well, I feel better now. And, I will watch myself over the next little while to ensure I do not flare it up again. I will do some exercises to see if i can strengthen it up again..

300 people on the goodreads giveaway for my book. It slowed down somewhat. This is probably due to the page now being pushed to the middle of the pack. It will come back to the front, in the soon over list. I expect then to get allot of action then. Till next time..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
