prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. (Native born Californian) Retired oilfield. I am an old man. (91) I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets more interesting. More interesting is not good. I still drive. I attend sports, music, and civic events. I am writing my memoirs. I attend swim class three times a week. Some of my blogs might be interesting. A lot of my blogs are silly and trivial. None are very long.

Looking at ankles today.

Between trimming my beard and treating my ankles I keep pretty busy. I had swollen itchy ankles today. During the day my ankles are always swollen. They are also itchy at times. If I scratch with my nails I can get a bloody mess. So I rub my ankles with alcohol soaked terry cloth. This really helps.


I noticed that the effect of the May-Thurner Syndrome is very pronounced. This vein condition results in your left ankle swelling more that your right ankle.


You can tell that I have a lot on my mind.....and that I will take a picture of anything.
