Still catching up with this blog. Last summer I suffered a major injury, I broke my right ankle in 3 places. It happened on July 29th, I had surgery on August 8th, they fixed me up with a plate and 8 screws. I really did it!
I was finally allowed to put full weight on it on October 9th, after 2 casts and another month without a cast but no weight on it. Lots of physical therapy and here it is, April 7th and I’m going great! Walking, shooting, everything, except running. Certain things need to wait until after a year from my surgery. I was told it could take up to a year to fully heal.
So here are my first assignments for our local paper, The Register News. Because of Hurricane Sandy, it was held on Nov. 4, 2012. Many people in our town were just getting electricity back and it was great getting out to do something normal again 😉
We had our annual Halloween parade and Walking Ghost tour. Yes, like most Pre-Revolutionary towns, we have our share of haunted homes and places.
