We are going to Gran Canaria in September. I think we are staying at a resort called Taurito. Look forward to hearing how you enjoyed yourself as I have never been to this particular island before.

Hope your Parkinsons settles down soon - you do seem to be having a bad time.

Hi Al. Sure you will have guessed that my post about Gran Canaria was for you. It never ends up in the right place!!

Hi al, so sorry you are having a bad time at the moment. This parky malarkey is a pain, but keep yer chin up. You offer so much encouragement on this site, we're all in this for the long run - tough as it may be, but you are not alone.

I a,m also finding things a wee bit harder at the mo. I stumbled round sainsburys yesterday hanging onto a trolley and came home with a load of junk lol. No home cooked meals with fresh veg for the family this week! Microwave meals, cakes and wine on the menu for us! Seriously though, you take special care of yourself xx

Hi al, he completed his run in 2.44 and raised over £2000. There was lots of cheers (and tears) as he crossed the finish line. It was I day I will never forget x

Having adjusted mirapexin (took 8 days) now sleeping every night no problem. Lots more energy. Spent this afternoon vaccing the garden with the Flymo sucker getting all the winter debris up. Garden centre tomorrow for new plants. Great to be outdoors with the weather so nice. Same for Sunday hopefully

Reply

glad to hear you've readjusted your mirapexin--it can be a booger! When you find that medication sweet spot it's like hearing the angels sing-- just wish it wouldn't change on a whim!

Any one out ther egot a few Million spare , we could buy Rangers and have a right good laugh, just imagin Rangers beeing owed by a bunch of Parkies , that would be a blast, oh in my dreams

Have a great week end All

Read the evening telegraph piece. Funny, yeah, but in a sad way. The clown has the wrong coloured nose on as well. The ex directors are a bunch of clowns. If Al doesn't buy the club someone else will! Have a great weekend

Going to the gym today to sweat off that one beer I drank last nite. It feels more like it was like ten. I call it The PD Hangover.

1. Hey Al, it is good to hear from you even though you've been going through a tough patch. Hang in there - I too am pulling and praying for you. Drop a message next time you get so low...I'm sure I can come up with something that will likely distract you for a moment or two. Some times that is all we parkies can hope for is a temporary diversion...

2. Original Question:

Yard work! We have no trees on our little corner of the desert but over the years every neighbor around us has trees with unremitting focus and through sheer determination they have somehow taught the trees and the breeze to drop all of their leaves into the lees of our yard! Beyond which we had our 2nd snow of the season on Monday, it is now officially Spring and I have lots of old roses which need dead heading and more serious pruning , Cacti and Yucca that need planting, weeds that need pulling and a few wilting plants gasping for another drink, of water that is... leave the porter and stout for me!!!

Later all!

Speaking of weekend after the last few awful weeks of trying to get my meds right so I can stay working and not go on disability. I was able to spend some time with my sister and catch up which was much needed, and make it to my grandson's birthday party he is now 4.I was able to have all 7 of my grandchildren in the same house for a day, I truly enjoyed watching them play together . I needed it!! Ihope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!

Hi Andy,

Hope you had a great weekend with your kids. Today is my birthday, and my 2 sons, daughter-in-law, and 2 granddaughters came in for the weekend. It has been an awesome day!

Cheri :)
