The Aches and Pains
I’ve been gardening for along time now. Every Spring brings on the usual sore back. It goes away after awhile and you soldier on, weeding, pruning and lugging around shrubs and trees. This year is different. By God I am sore everywhere, everday. My shoulders, wrists, back and knees. I’m afraid it might be an age thing. Bloody hell. I’m to young to be old. Since I do it for work it is extra troubling. I don’t want a new job. I like my job dammit. I guess I’ll be sporting a bag of frozen peas for the shoulder. long soaks in the hot tub and a daily asprin. Just typing that sentence makes be cringe.
