Run, Baby, Run

26 Sep

So, it’s official. I am “released” from the doctor’s care. I’m still limping a little, but me and my new hardware are adjusting. Thought y’all might get a kick out of seeing the x-ray. If you look closely, just to the right of third screw from the top, you can see the fracture.


It’s been a long, hot summer that I’m glad is over. Hopefully, the healing process will continue and I can be back playing golf next spring. I’m still a little apprehensive about shifting weight onto my right leg, but I’m sure confidence will return over time.

In honor of my “independence”, here are a few musical selections:

The March, Robert Randolph and the Family Band

Walkin’ After Midnight, Patsy Cline

Run, Baby, Run – Taylor Hicks

Walkin’ to New Orleans – Fats Domino

Born to Run (Acoustic) – Bruce Springsteen

Walk the Line, Johnny Cash

Running on Empty – Jackson Browne

Walkin’ in Memphis – Marc Cohn

Run, Run, Run – Velvet Underground

    Good morning MM. So glad you’re doing well. Belated Happy Birthday to you also. Hate to do this to you, but I couldn’t resist a little musical humor this morning.

    And here’s a serious one for your continued recovery and a birthday wish.

    later…welcome. Glad you like my weird associations.

    Thanks, LD. What a delightful plethora of “walking” tunes…

    I dig Kathy Matea, too. Is it just me or is there something scary about Ernest Tubb? Maybe it’s the teeth or maniacal smile? Talented dude, but skeer-ree.

    Shrew — that, was hilarious. Bet he’s popular at Halloween.

    Hey, anybody know if jenfera is going to Big E?

    I have it on good authority that I am indeed going to the Big E!

    The Big E is right in my hometown. We have friends coming up from New York state to visit and go the fair with us. We shall see if Taylor is in the cards or not. My husband is not a fan. Our guests don’t know him one way or the other.

    I am looking forward to seeing the Royal Canadian Mounties in action even if I don’t get to see Taylor!

    Congrats on your healing, MM! Here’s my contribution to the walking songs:

    U2 – Walk On

    Yeah!!! MM’s back on her feet full strength.

    Love the Run Baby Run. I’ve heard Taylor sing that many different times and that’s one of the best renditions ever. Do you know which show that’s from?
