You’re out for a meal and you kindly ask that your companion pass you the water/a napkin/the olives on the table, etc. They hand it to you and you outstretch your arm, but it’s bent because your elbow is now so swollen that you can no longer straighten your arm. So there you sit, with your bent arm, looking like a princess who simply refuses to stretch far enough to accept the item being passed to you. Your companion looks at you as if you’re being lazy and unappreciative, and you have to quickly come up with a reason for not reaching far enough. Not wanting to explain your personal health situation, especially if this is a business meal, you not-so-quickly try and rise from your seat to leverage your entire body over the table in order to reach for the water, and you do so with both hands because your wrists hurt so much that there’s no way you can simply hold the item.
2 dogs, 1 .38, 1 SKS, and a sign stating German Shepherd on guard. I never stand in front of the door but yell from top of staircase if Someone approaches the door. Have a section of 2×4 that is cut and that I can lay on the floor between the door bottom and the bottom step on the latching side so the door can’t be forced open. Windows in top of door are 4×6 and too hight to look into from outside but can see through to driveway from top steps inside. All windows have sections of broomstick cut to fit in the track to keep them from sliding upper than 3″.
