WoodWorking (week 635)

Year 12, Week 9, Day One (week 635)
(January 17, 2000 was my first carving day.)
09-16-12 Sunday
88 Degrees, clouds, a few showers, thick air, felt a bit dreary. This weather is brought to you by the city of Pompano Beach Department of Tourism.
I had an MRI scan mid week. This was a STAND UP MRI. You sat between two five foot diameter disks on a little chair at the back end of the disks. I had to move my shoulders forward to fit in the space. After I was wedged in place, they ran the machine in several sequences taking as many as 30 images in each sequence. It sounded like a really bad drummer.
I saw a few of the images but don't know the body well enough to see where the damage is. I have an appointment next week to get it interpreted for me.
The weather was not condusive to yard sales. Instead we went to the FESTIVAL FLEA MARKET. This is a nice sized mall building. Along the back side of the building is sectioned off for stores. The rest of the mall is boths one can rent and sell just about anything. It is all commercial quality items-- watches, clothing consmetics, jewelry, "as seen on TV", books, toys, all out of small booths. We needed to go to several of the stores, a shoe repair, Avon, DOLLAR AND UP, plus some looking around.  
We missed where two of the places were located and hand to hunt for them, there are five or six rows of these boths. some go all the way across to the next isle, while others are just half and you cannot see what is on the other side. I picked up a couple items at DOLLAR AND UP store.
We walked about half the mall plus walking across the parking lot. I logged in the farthest I have walked since the accident and did not do all that bad. I was puffing several times but otherwise, did well.
Heavy weather was expected and my brother was involved in a project for work and would not be coming up. After an early morning meeting, we decided to go back out to the FESTIVAL FLEA MARKET and visit the food court for lunch. I had decided I needed something else from the DOLLAR AND UP store. 
We had Chinese and it was good. I got what I needed in the store, and checked out a couple other stores I skipped the day before. I walked a bit too fast so when we got back to the car, I was puffing really good.
At home, after some playing around, I took a long afternoon nap before we headed off to another meeting.
I really need to get back into serious wood working. I have more than enough projects to occupy me and more than enough wood to last me several years.
I will have to see what I do next week.
