If it weren't for bad luck...

Monday, December 4, 2017

As per standard 'Murphys Law' shortly after my last blog about how marvelous my Tennis Elbow was going, the cricket season began.  Lo and behold, as if by magic, the same tendon on the other elbow went 2nd game of the season!

So not only did I lose my ability to play any banjo again, I had to stop playing cricket.  Fretboard wing this time so no getting away with altered technique and such.  Just had to stop.

The good news is, my marvelous consultant surgeon agreed to continue treatment without going through the entire 'referral' rigamarole, for my new elbow injury so I had that PRP'd a few weeks back.  The injury is a lot less severe again, but still niggly and there, but I'm reasonably optimistic this treatment will be shorter.

For those of you interested, I did manage to play a few more games of cricket.. then promptly damaged ankle ligaments... this was supposed to be a 'safe' sport... help you stay fit and healthy they said... *sigh*

Back on my Banjer in the new year, so I'm told... fingers crossed, eh?


Guess who's back... again...

I'm an eco-terrorist (scientist, if you prefer) specialising in Chemistry. I 'don't do' Biology - all of that poking around inside of road-kill was never for me, and Physics was always '..on a frictionless plane..' and ' a perfect vacuum..' which we all know is just made-up speak for '..our best guess is..' Started learning Banjo after I harrassed my wife in to getting me one for Christmas and have never looked back.
