I love coffee and it is huge now. Sacramento has a great little scene these days. I spent some time this week working on Apptology work at various local java shops. Broadacre, Tupelo, Peets were some I checked out. All of them were busy and do great business here in Sacramento. I had a great Rwandan at Broadacre. Tupelo is a popular Sacramento State hangout. Maybe in a few months , I will check out a few more.

Working left handed is quite a different feel! Not being able to swim, run, bike is a killer. Makes you appreciate it more huh? When gone? For sure. I watch cyclists ride by and I stare and certainly they think something is amiss. The one armed wonder is staring at me. I want to thank Jodie for all her help. Cutting your nails requires assistance from a loved one. Such great fun for her! I am slated to take part in the Donner Lake Triathlon in July but could miss it. We shall see as the doc stressed thinking long term and not risking it. In the meantime, I am trying to walk 3 miles a day and hitting exercise bike at Cal Fit.
Maybe I will go to Fleet Feet and look at shoes.

and Jodie saves the day! Three days ago I landed hard. Hard on L Street. Trying avoid some people while riding the Trek, I hit a curb landing on my arm, fracturing my right radial head. In non-MD lingo, that is a broken elbow. Ouch! Now the fun begins. Must get to ER. Rodney, the good Samaritan, was walking by and saw me gracefully plant myself on ground. Knowing I had a serious injury, Rodney sprung into action and called Jodie who was on scene quickly.
Th ER was chaos. 1 PM on a Tuesday! Cops chasing people around, kids wailing, massive backlog. A tad stressful but the doctors and nurses were great. I have much respect for these professionals working with limited resources in such high pressure situations. The crazy part is, it looked like I was in worst shape! There may have been many in there that should not be. At one point, we thought about going to another ER but decided against and we only ended up being there approximately five hours! Not too bad. Wonder what bill will be. haha!
I broke my right elbow and I am right-handed so I am poking away at this blog post as Lefty Lindy. I will overcome and get this post to my millions of readers. hehehe. Ice, elevation, etc. My weeks ahead. I really lucked out as no surgery or cast is needed. It should heal just fine. The one thing I chuckle to myself about is… I was biking to work for health and to save gas money. There goes the gas money to doctors and health… well… at least my heart is strong!
I did not realize that the East Sacramento, CA neighborhood had such an amazing Christmas light display each year! It is the best display I have ever seen and it draws many from around the region with good reason. For the past week, I have donned the baklava and tights and ran some miles though out the neighborhood after nightfall. Good thing there are many people around on these particular nights as I could easily be taken for a cat burglar. Ha. The past few evenings, a wagon full of people were being pulled around the streets by huge horses. I am pretty sure they are not of the Clydesdale variety but are large nonetheless. The holidays revelers in the wagon waved and I waved back and thought to myself now THIS is what Christmas is about! All we need is a little snow…. well maybe not.
