The hand injury turns out to involve a bit of a break in my wrist bone. Darn--a cast on my right hand limits my activities even more than the brace did. This is for three weeks. Ok. What would a healthy little dog do in my situation. Tomorrow the weather is forecast to be in the low 70's. Rule no. 9 says, "On warm days, stop to lie on your back in the grass." Yes!! I can do that with a cast on my wrist! Lunch tomorrow will be a picnic basket of herring with sour cream, whole grain bread, broccoli salad, and hot tea with an almond cookie. After lunch I will lie in the grass with nothing to read or write.
