COMMON GROUNDS
Yesterday morning found me once again in Bluffton, Ohio for my latest prolotherapy treatment. I have found a special way to treat myself after getting about 130 injections in the prolotherapy treatment. And that is to stop in and spend a little bit of time at The Common Grounds Coffeehouse in Bluffton. Yesterday, because I had a large project to work on, I had decided that I would nto go into the office later but instead spend some time working at Common Grounds before heading home for a late afternoon planning meeting at Evan's school.

Common Grounds has quickly become one of my favorite places. Of course, having grown up nearby to Bluffton and then later return there for college, Bluffton has a special place in my heart anyway. It is a community of friendly folks who seem to be at peace with themselves. Now appearances can be deceptive ... I know that ... and I tend to fall in love with whatever town I am in ... but there is something special about Bluffton. Where else can you be walking through campus and have squirrels fall out of trees right before you and then sit up, shake their heads, and look at you like you did something to cause this calamity?

Anyway, I had a great few hours at Common Grounds. Lots of folks came and went as I sat there at my table taking advantage of their free wireless. There were a few faces I remembered from years back. A bit more aged but friendly nonetheless.

I had a wonderful lunch with half of a chicken salad wrap as well as a bowl of Sweet Potato Ham Chowder ... the name sounded a little odd but, trust me, it was chowder that was good enough to be pronounced as "chowda".

Anyway, it was a great treat ... a relaxing and refeshing time. I do feel rejuvenated today but, if I could find an excuse to get back up there today ...

What a wonderful way for rewarding yourself after sitting through 130 shots! It probably almost made it worth it. ;-)

The really neat thing is that, when I drink coffee after getting 50 shots in each knee (plus the 30 in my neck), I can pee out of my knees! (I'm sorry ... that was so very very wrong...)
