Though my wife has an administrative position, she was walking about 2000 steps each day at the office going to peoples' offices, conference rooms and the like. Now that she is working at home, she barely gets in any steps. So, she has been taking breaks to use a portable stepper machine. Last week she got out our old stand designed to hold a slide projector while presenting slideshows, extended its legs, and she uses it as a standing desk to mitigate the effects of her sedentary work style while at home.Chairs are important in these times of Covid—one spends so much time in them
I've had both knees replaced, a week apart. I know what that's like. A month in rehab, two weeks in a nursing home, and six months of grueling physical therapy. Recovery, such as it was, was not funny for me, either.Things aren't too funny with Greg right now. He is having a lot of trouble with his hip and I feel so bad for him. He had both knees replaced three years ago and his recovery was tough because his body makes too much scar tissue.
This is so apple... er... software company:Just finished upgrading to iOS 14 on my iPhone. Was quick and problem free, as always. But what made my day was this:
1. New weather Ap now gives you the option to see weather on a map. Yippie! NOTE: I live in Moscow, Idaho, USA!

2. I press "Weather for Moscow. Open in Maps" and here we are . . .

Sounds like your knee replacement surgery was brutal as well. Hope it is going well for you now. Glad you were able to end your post with a humorous photo!!I've had both knees replaced, a week apart. I know what that's like. A month in rehab, two weeks in a nursing home, and six months of grueling physical therapy. Recovery, such as it was, was not funny for me, either.
After the second operation, they got me up to my bed, the bed started shaking, the walls started shaking, the nurses ran out into the corridor. This was 8/23/2011. There was an earthquake in Virginia, felt in the hospital in DC. I had visions of trying to claw my way out of the rubble with catheters stuck in me.
And while I was in the hospital, a tree fell on my roof during a hurricane. I didn't get back into my house until the new year.
And I'm beginning to feel some hip arthritis, too.
But this is more relevant to the thread.
Mount Vernon Avenue in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, VA.

After an experience like this the lyrics of a song come to mind. "I guano go home...."For all you folks who take great pride in your ability to photograph a bird in flight, how many of you can walk precisely underneath a bird in flight at precisely the right time to have your clothes adorned by its feces? While I was walking toward the curbside pickup of my wine (what else?) today, I felt something hit the upper part of my chest. Ya gotta admit that the colors complement the shirt's colors.
My wife took the photo while I was modeling the shirt and I post-processed the image.
