Oh, you’ve come here hoping for trashy pics of overweight women and well-endowed blokes? Sorry to disappoint you!
And, in my own case, we’ve brought in the “big guns” of germ warfare. The doctor looked at my ankle and said “hmm…” She rattled away at her computer keyboard, looking for an antibiotic that would not send me on what the hippies called a ” bad trip.” Been there, done that, not fun.
I’m on a course of Erythromycin tablets and Bactroban ointment. I also had a tetanus shot. (This is not to be confused with hard liquor.) And, when I venture forth, I’m to wear one of those rather fetching lace-y, lurex-y support stockings.* When at home, I’m supposed to rest, with the afflicted limb elevated. What? Watch daytime telly during school holidays? I think not!And the swimming pool is off-limits. :-(So’s alcohol. double 😦
So it’s just as well I have my music.
Remember, a couple of posts back, when I hinted that I’d next bring you a performer who used to sing with Benny Goodman? This is not the Goodman orchestra, but damn! it’s good.
Some of Ruth Wallis’ material was considered a little too close to the bone for mainstream recording studios back in those days. (1940s,50s and yes, even the 60s!) So she formed her own company!
OK…guess I’d better elevate my foot, if not my mind!
*Coming in at 20+ denier, they’re made for the Mile High Club, aka flight attendants and (grudgingly!) I suppose they are not too ugly. But if I’d to wear them long-term I’d top them with fish nets. 🙂
