I just wanted to check in and show my recent yoga photo. I’ve come so far in the past two years and most can’t believe I am a bilateral hip patient.

Since I was too timid to have a bilat like brave Anna was, now I can clearly feel the difference.|

Hi all…. Shirl and I arrived safe and sound on Wednesday afternoon in Amsterdam at about 12:30 PM. We were about an hour early because of a strong westerly jet stream which pushed us along nicely. We got off the plane and Shirl was booked for assistance so we were picked up at the gate by a golf card and rushed through the terminal to passport control and were out to pick up our baggage in about 15… Read the rest
