YOU KNOW WHAT they say about best-laid plans? True, very true. Our Great Western Adventure was to start on Monday but it seems that a bum knee has thrown a monkey into the wrench (I heard a guy say that on the radio the other day).
The knee in question belongs to my sister Carmen. She went on her daily morning walk earlier this week and fell, hurting her knee. She didn’t think it was anything serious because it didn’t hurt that much and she could walk OK. But she had a doctor’s appointment a couple of days ago and went ahead and had her knee X-rayed. The resulting photo showed a cracked knee cap. She’s supposed to see a specialist but because of the long holiday weekend, she has yet to be able to make an appointment.
