Prospector, I have a brother in Radcliffe, KY who works for Keyboard Carriage in Elizabethtown. His step-kids are all huge college basketball fans. One stepson and his wife and daughter actually live in Louisville. I can't remember, of course, who they root for.

 

Did we ever get dressed in 30 seconds? I can't recall how to be that fast any longer!

Bristol, Rhode Island. Diagnosed Dec, 10 2013. Symptoms started at least 10 years ago with severe stiffness, muscle and joint soreness. Developed a tremor in right arm that's been getting worse for the last year. Also have many other symptoms including gait issues. Haven't gathered myself since my diagnoses.

49, just diagnosed 12/18/13, noticable & problematic tremor noticed about October.  Looking back, loss of smell probably 10 yrs ago & have been watched for possible autoimmune disease for about six years.  No one in family with PD.

I live in AR

49, diagnosed at 47 due to loss of arm swing.  Complained to doctor of loss of smell around 5 years ago.  I am a CPA just outside of Boston, Massachusetts.  My biggest problem is rigidity, not tremor.  Sometimes when the rigidity is really bad I can't bend my left leg and can't walk for more than 100 feet or so.  Still, try to stay positive and enjoy life.

Hi Johnnys -  I envy you the impending snow storm predicted to exceed 12 inches with the 'lake effect" I hear.  I spent Christmas this year in your Catskill Mountains - little snow this time which was a disappointment to me.  Nothing quite like snow falling in the woods at dusk.  Robert Frost wrote of it so movingly and memorably in his famous poem:

 

 

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

BY ROBERT FROST

Whose woods these are I think I know.   
His house is in the village though;   
He will not see me stopping here   
To watch his woods fill up with snow.   

My little horse must think it queer   
To stop without a farmhouse near   
Between the woods and frozen lake   
The darkest evening of the year.   

He gives his harness bells a shake   
To ask if there is some mistake.   
The only other sound’s the sweep   
Of easy wind and downy flake.   

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.
