I’m Suffering From Gout

I’m Suffering From Gout

Since my first attack I’m amazed at the number of us who are suffering from gout. How well I remember my first attack. I was in my early forties and I woke this morning with an agonizing pain in my big toe. It was red and it was swollen. My first thought was that I had broken the toe but I couldn’t recall any instance where I had struck it. My visit to the doctor’s office confirmed that I had…

Those were the days of hand me down clothes, boots and shirts where the collars…

Why Would You Do That

Why Would You Do That

Why, why, why is one word that has followed me from my childhood. I can recall my mother asking me as a young child, “steve, why would you do that,” or when she was really upset, “why did you do that?” Sound familiar! For some reason, as young children, most of us have that built in mechanism where we would try and lie ourselves out of a situation. Even if we knew we did something wrong, we would come up…
