I've known since last October that I have a rotator cuff tear in my left shoulder. It actually got better before it got worse but not for long.
Last June, I was thinking surgery would not be necessary. My daughter, Jourdan, and the folks at MyTime Fitness showed me how to work out without using a full range of motion in my shoulder. For instance, I would half-stroke on an incline press. I was getting stronger and feeling better, but one day my manly pride got in the way.
I was working out with some women in a fitness class. After a punishing workout we were instructed to do push-ups. I was not going to cop-out with the ladies and did the exercise. My shoulder has been in pain ever since.
By the time you read this, I will have had the surgery. My shoulder and left arm will be immobilized for six weeks.
Even though I am right-handed, my dominant eye is my left and I shoot left-handed. I'm supposed to be cleared to shoot Nov. 19.
My plan is to shoot my .22 scoped Marlin right-handed for squirrels and buy a Native scoped cross-bow to shoot from the right side for deer.
Fall fishing is my favorite. Larry Holliday and I love to catch big bluegill from an Owen County Lake.
Perhaps, a cane pole might work, but that is not how I like to fish. Patience is a virtue I will have to learn.

While working the Indiana State Fair, I escorted a blind man to a booth that sold those big, beautiful roasting ears. I asked one of the fellows where they got the corn?
I learned the corn is contracted by a farmer who has to plant a certain variety on or near a specified date.
