    We hosted our fourth fencing event at the West Chester YMCA. Evidently I didn't keep notes for the first tournament (06/24/2012). The second tournament (12/30/2012), we had 17 fencers from four clubs. The third tournament (12/27/2013), we had 24 fencers from three clubs. This tournament, we had 14 fencers from three clubs. I smaller turnout because we held it on the weekend after New Years when many kids ...
  2. Damn Tennis Elbow

    by , 01-05-2015 at 12:53 AM
    I've never figured out the complexities of tennis elbow recovery. This is my second serious bout with it and last time was just as problematic. I'd do all the right things with no results and then do stupid things and get results. Sometimes, I think the best therapy for tennis elbow should be based on the chaos theory. Come to think about it, the same thing seems to hold true for diets. Eat sensibly, exercise, count calories and gain 5 pounds seemingly overnight and be unable to zip up the knickers. ...
  3. Tennis elbow

    After no symptoms for a while and being careful to perform all exercises, etc., I returned for my first fencing lesson.

    Fencing hurts.

    Training for Reno is going to be problematic but then again, I have almost always been training with some body part or another being non-functional or hurting.

    Last time I just had all my hair cut off. This time, there's not enough hair to make that kind of sacrifice.

    I have a feeling I'm going to be ...
  4. Fencing medals and bowling trophies

    by , 12-31-2014 at 09:08 AM
    On the main level of our home, in an unfortunately prominent location, we have three bowling trophies that my husband's parents earned back in the 70s at various city-wide competitions. These are not small trophies and were from significant events so my husband insisted that we had to keep them after his parents died. However, his parents had moved them to the basement of their home 2-3 decades ago and cheap metal coating tends to corrode over a period of time when kept in a damp basement. Thus, ...
  5. Seeing less of me

    by , 12-29-2014 at 11:09 AM
    I have finally succeeded in zipping up the knickers after last week's rather sudden and excessive weight gain and I've submitted my registration and booked room and flight for Reno. I guess I'm going.

    Now to do something about the shoulder, the back, the elbow, and the extra weight around the middle that's forcing me to lie down if I want to zip up those knickers.
