Because live blogging John Gierach's latest book is a lot
cheaper than paying him to guest blog, I'm offering up yet another passage from No Shortage of Good Days
This one is tasty, though it plunges the knife a bit too close to my own heart being as I recently achieved geezer status myself, and after a winter largely spent sitting and coughing, feel it:
From my own experience, I can say that a bad back makes you hike slower, stove-up knees keep you from walking confidently, tendonitis of the elbow buggers your casting, and a dose of giardia can send you dashing into the bushes fifteen times in an afternoon, but although none of this is fun, it's discernibly better than not fishing.
-- (From page 47 of the Nook ebook version)
Not to quibble or anything, but I'm pretty sure "tendonitis" is a commonly used but incorrect spelling of "tendinitis."
Clearly, being a geezer has its advantages.
See you at the ereader, Tom Chandler.
