I found a great sale this morning, got lots of great stuff, pictures will follow, but that's not the story of note today.
As I was loading my car with my treasures, walking briskly up a small hill to get the 2nd load, I feel a pop in my calf, I can't remember if I heard it, but I definitely felt it. It really hurt, my first thought was "did I break my leg" then I quickly realized it wasn't the bone, but in the muscle. I tried to shake it off and continued loading my car with a limp. The guy even asked if I was OK. I tried to continue going to sales, and I did hit one other, but after that I realized that I was truly hurt.
When I got into the office, I was able to take a look at the leg and saw a huge bump on the top side, opposite the calf. At that point I decided to call the doctor, and a visit quickly followed. It appears I have a torn muscle or tendon or something. He told me but he told me lots of stuff and I don't remember it all. The short story is, I hurt myself, and will be off my feet for a few days and not fully healed for a few weeks. If I want to heal faster I will stay off of it. Yuck, that really slows me down. I don't slow down well :(
But I know if i want to be back to normal faster, I'll listen to the Doctors. Luckilly the Achilles was not involved. The pop was the scariest part, but fairly common with this injury.
So the RoboJunker, needs a roboleg for awhile. Too bad no such thing exists, and I'll simply have to endure it. In the mean time I've got some pics of the great stuff that I found before the POP.
It was a great sale, It looked like lots and lots of old junk had just been airdropped onto this guys lawn.
I got this whole box of old baby shoes.
Frames, a flag, stamp holder, lamp shade,
Box of hinge hardware
This great desk top organizer, A Giant W, Coke sign, rusty metal wire basket.
So the day is not a complete loss.
I was supposed to help a friend with her sale today, but have had to back out. I hate doing that to her. But I've said I will try tomorrow and all I can do is sit. So it looks like I'll be a ticket writer and money taker. If you are a local be sure to Stop by Anita's sale tomorrow
