Pills And A Puzzle And A Likeness

I've done as the doctor said and left off the arthrotec . Every time I take my pills (my cocktail of drugs) I extract the arthrotec pill from the pill box and put it on my desk. There are seven of them there now- big white pills- lying in a configuration a little like The Big Dipper. They look forlorn.

But I can't say I've missed them. The day before yesterday I went out front and chipped ice off the pavement with a garden spade and yesterday I spent several hours leaning over a jigsaw puzzle, so I've got a full complement of aches and pains, but I don't believe they're any worse than usual.

Jigsaws are wholly absorbing. Addictive, even. This latest one is a picture of a steam train. Ruth saw me through the window, bending over it, totally fixated- lit by a single angle-poise-  and said I looked like Scrooge.
