I am not sure myself, what actually is happening when this hip problem strikes me. Because it happens sooooo fast! All of a sudden I am going down. Is it because I am shrinking away from the pain that I begin to go down? Or is my hip joint just letting go [this seems impossible].
12 noon - Ordered a hiking stick!
It was bound to happen, sooner or later. I just bought a hiking stick. Looks like my hiking stick should arrive at the Wal*Mart grocery location in La Mesa on Friday.

1:30pm - Chin's and Lowes
I'm heading out for lunch and some shopping.
Chin's is a first class Chinese restaurant off the main road thru the Town of La Mesa. Chin's has taken up $5 lunch and $8 supper specials. I've been going to Chin's weekly for about a month. That was when I first found about Chin's specials.
After Chin's, I'm taking a run up to the Town of Santee. There's a rumor out that Lowe's has Neanthe Bella Palms in stock. I have two of these palms growing on the balcony, and both are doing exceptionally well! I want two more. [link]
2:30pm - Seated at Chin's
I asked the waitress what the $5 special is for today. ["Hunan Fish"] I looked for Hunan Fish in the menu. And there it was, priced at $12.95!
I was in the restaurant business from 1976 to 1989. Three locations. All successful. And I learned one major idea from that experience.
I promoted in the local newspaper. On a popular FM music station. I promoted with my "Roller Skating Car Hops!"
Discounting is definitely in the category of promotion. But I have the feeling, here at Chin's, the owner may be a little desperate.
I never even heard of Chin's before they put up the roadside discount signs.
At Chin's for only $5!
4:30pm - In-N-Out for a shake
Right now I am at In-N-Out sipping on a strawberry shake. Before driving here, I was at the Lowe's in the same shopping center. Lowe's was out of stock of the palms that I told you about before. I'm going to try and find these palms on the internet.
Does it seem strange to go to In-N-Out for only a shake? They sell good shakes! Reasonably priced too. That's why I am here. 😎
5:30pm - Pool & spa area closed
On walking down to the spa for a nice hot bath, I was met with a gate sign:
"POOL AND SPA AREA CLOSED FOR SERVICING"
Perhaps we tenants should be clued in to the "WHY" of the closure? But we are not clued in. I guess we just gotta be patient.
