Good to hear from you, too, Minnie ... actually I've gotten along a lot better in the food department ... probably fattened up too much ... cna even drink some mountain dew and eat some (mildly) spicy foods (though one of co-workers cracked up laughing at me when I broke out in a huge sweat while trying to eat some spicy BBQ awhile back -- he still kids me about it)...

I guess I don't help my own cause by lugging around a big old heavy camera to all the sporting events I cover at my current job. Or by working at a computer other parts of the day. And I have a 2-year old daughter that can't resist "carrying Daddy" (i.e. letting daddy carry her) ... she weighs like 30 pounds!

Unfortunately, I can't yell at the ref in my position as a sports photog, though at times it's tempting... take care ;-)

What kind of camera do you use? I have a nice Cannon Rebel but it stinks in the school gyms. I need something that's good for sports.

One third of tongue removed 10-4-07. 5-23-08 chemo started for tumor behind swallowing passage, Our good friend and much loved OCF member Minnie has been lost to the disease (RIP 10-29-08).

Kelley, I hope your feeling better and I'm sorry to hear of others with neck pain, especially having to take pain meds so long after tx. Kelley I just wanted to let you know that I also get aggravated because I never get any scans done. The same old song and dance. "No need until you show symptoms". A yrly chest X-ray and that's it. Of course that's when my cancer split personality rears it's ugly head; What are these Dr.s trying to hide? Doc I'm tough enough please order the test I have to know for peace of mind and I want to be healthy enough to enjoy my last trip to disney with my kids....etc. etc.Then I settle down and reach into my pocket and take out the $4 and go to a high school basketball game and have the time of my life.I have now after 7 yrs drew a line in the sand and I'm going to let the dr's treat and find the cancer and I'm going to take Minnie's lead and take in some more basketball games and work on things that Improve my quality of life. I know that can be difficult for those in pain, It's more like
