Fortunately I was not in a lot of pain and only took ibuprofen after the first days in the hospital. No hurt no cure and I don’t do pain med’s! While all this was going on I was now preparing for the long trip to Des Moines and doing so by hunting and buying signs from my Picker friends along the way as I had previously done.
This time I had some bought on poles in Tijeras New Mexico and then more in Joplin from Chuck and then a beautiful Sovereign Sign in Nebraska on a pole and then several others from Joh Anderson in Iowa.
No I hadn’t asked for the Drs permission to drive my truck but yes I had informed the PA of our plans as she winced thinking about it.
