We went to southern Maine yesterday. It was amazing to watch the season change as we went south. Leaves may be totally or almost totally changed here, but not further south where they are approaching peak. I’ll bet even further south they are not at peak yet. In any case, they were nice to see. We took the leisurely route and went near the water. It took longer, but was nicer than the turnpike. We came back that way so we could get home by dark. All in all it was a good trip.
Last week I went to Auburn to the doc and let him convince me I needed a shot and it would end the pain in my arm. It did for all of ten minutes and the next morning it was like nothing had changed. It still hurt to use that arm and to carry things. But at least I now know it is in the nerves. Doesn’t make it feel better, but always nice to know what it is.
