You're Only As Old As You Feel

Let me tell ya.....there are some days, my "bod" feels like it's about 95 years old.  LOL!  Some of you know I've been having  a problem with my shoulder/arm/neck....They FINALLY found out it has something to do with my brachial plexus (too complicated to go into here) but I had to go to Physical Therapy for several weeks.  Pain in the buns I'm telling you. 

I've made this card for the ladies in the PT department since they were so helpful (and put me through so much pain)!  We were always joking about the fact that as you get older, your mind thinks you can do certain things and yet your body just rebels at stuff like that.   Anyway, thank goodness I'm not yet in the shape of poor Jean (Art Impressions Stamps) here.  But, she's still feisty with her little pinwheel and horn on that walker and looks like she can still tell you "how it is"!  Which brings us to the inside of the card (and hopefully this won't offend anyone)...................
So that's it for a Funny Friday - and maybe I'll have another one next Friday too! 
Thanks for stopping by............and have a wonderful weekend.

Margaret said...

I LOVE her and her little pinwheel! My Dad is currently in PT twice a week since his stroke and this would be perfect for his PT! He always says that he tells his arm and leg what to do, they just don't listen ;-)

Donna Hanley said...

I LOVE this card both inside and out. I'm sure your PT people will get a big kick out of it. I, too, have been to therapy and are now waiting for another appt. with another doc. Rotator cuff,deltoid bursitis, and degenerating disc problems all at once. I should have been kinder to my younger body. Ow Well, still better off than a lot of people. Love to hear your Doxie is like my two. Some of us are just suckers for these little precious babies, huh? Have a good weekend Lynn.

Tammy said...

Oh this is sooo cute Lynn! I LOVE that little pinwheel and fantastic sentiment!!

Well I'm glad they figured out the problem for you but I don't envy you the physical therapy. This is such a cute card and perfect for the intended recipients.
