So Near.... Yet........

Well, I'm now about four weeks post back surgery, and quite frankly I'm going a bit stir crazy.  For someone who's always been active, the lack of mobility and inability to perform some of the simplest of tasks has been most frustrating. I never thought that putting on socks, and then shoes, would be an accomplishment.  Activity wise, I've been limited to a few daily walks totaling an hour or so.  No big deal other than it's a pittance for one used to covering miles, many of them.
In the past month, I've spent enough time on ice to prepare for the next life.  That is, assuming that I'll be reincarnated as a gutted fish destined for the  supermarket cold case.  I guess that it will just take time.
I think back to a line from an old Tom Selleck movie (The High Road to China).  In it he asked a wise old oriental man for some sage advice.  The advice was......
"The oxen are slow, but the earth is patient." 
 Can't argue with that.

Here's something that I've wanted to present for quite a while. I never thought that I would rely on others to provide the material for a post.  It seemed like a cop out.  But, as my fishing has ceased, and I'm in recovery mode, I thought it appropriate to put something up, lest the world think that I've slipped into the next dimension.
This is a fun video that pleases me to no end. It's not new and has been posted elsewhere.  It was produced by Detonation Studios for SIMMS and is extremely well done.  Great soundtrack too.
I've spent many days on the creek.  It will be (too) many more before I get back.  This is my happy fix for the day.  Hopefully yours too.
Pay attention to the two minute mark…… the little gal epitomizes joy.
