Yeh, I think you're right - I saw a virtual game for training puppies, maybe I'll try that.

I got my daughter one of these tamagochi things a bunch of years ago. The little bugger died when I tried to look after it, a bit like real life and me with ornamental fish (I shouldn't have taken them out the bowl and sat them on my knee to watch the telly).

The cost of carefree ways.

An injury I sustained in 1980 has come back for me ! On Christmas Eve 1980, my pals and I were leaving the Beau Brummel pub in Hanover St, Edinburgh and were heading off to Tiffany's Night Club to dance our way into Christmas Day, meet the loves of our lives (for the night), hopefully get lucky and end up having to get home Christmas morn in time for the special family lunch. As we went down the hill from the pub, an icy slide on the sloping pavement took our fancy. My pals had a shot and on my turn, in slim-fitting suit, Ben Sherman shirt and tie, chelsea boots and dark blue wool crombie reefer coat, I galloped to the slide and went really airborne on the ice ! I landed completely on my left shoulder. It hurt a bit but then went numb. By the time we reached Tiffany's, my arm was unusable. I couldn't raise it 6 inches from my body. Never mind, being numb, it was forgotten and additional vodkas helped too. It was a lovely night. Eventually, as the disco quietened down and gathered around a tree while "White Christmas" played, I was sitting on this lassie's knee and snogging with her. She was a little taller than me ! We went to her place and brought in Christmas . (I got to unwrap my first present, you could say !). Still my arm was numb.

Back home by late morning, the numbness wore off and it was agony ! My brother had to drive me to hospital A&E where less than impressed nurses (working Christmas Day due to idiots like me) x-rayed me. Nothing broken, but my left shoulder was out of alignment a bit and a new bone was sticking up at the end of my clavicle. Weird !

In time, all went back to normal, except my shoulder looked a little different to the other one.

Until 4 or so weeks ago. I started having pains in the same shoulder after all these years. As of now, I can't raise my left arm higher than about 18 inches. Painful. I went to the orthopedic specialist. I was x-rayed. Nothing broken but something's up and the specialist said it looks like arthritic action in that shoulder. I've to get an MRI to see if there's changes to the "meat" at the shoulder too to confirm any damage/deterioration or whatever.

Oh well, I've had a good run. Now things are catching up with me - greying hair, pot-belly, arthritis, industrial deafness (years of great loud music), teeth not quite so shiny white as before.

Is it too late to reverse the effects of some of this ?

diet is of course important but keeping the body moving is just as important. If you don't know what exercises you need go to a physical therapist for advice . Here in the US I see one when I need it and they teach me exercises I can do. I always worried that I was straining my body too much. They taught that I was doing the right exercises but doing them wrong. Walking is one of the easiest and most beneficial of all exercises.
