Hello Monday, hope you are a good one,it is time for some facts.
The vibration of shell-like rings on the end of a rattlesnake's tail make the rattling sound. The rattle is made up of dry hard pieces of skin. As the snake grows the number of rings increases, so the louder the rattle, the bigger the snake.

Another mostly good night and a struggle when I got up, Tim helped me a bit.
Still a lot of knee pain but Leo is a big help. Not up to doing much at all, including getting myself food.
Kelli arrived around 2pm to settle me down for the night, damn I am glad to see her.
Had a rough start to the night but managed to settle after a bit and had a good night in the end.
Rang Tasha at 5am just to see if she was home yet, she came down in a mood and got my breakfast. Kathy came in and helped me dress before heading home.
I understand that she must feel that she isn't home 1 minute when I am needing her help.
Didn't take Leo up the front as it is too wet.
Been a so so day with pain and struggle.
Had a somewhat restless night but I got through it somehow, woke at 4.45 and up at 5am. Struggled to get dressed but did it with tears.
My knee is still bad but I managed to do a few little things before the pain got too bad.

Sandy came over to pick up some forms we printed for her and it was great seeing her.
Had a good night and woke with very little pain, I am also wearing nice earrings since I am going to see the neurologist.
Sydney-May came home from camp sick with RSV so is off school I expect until Monday. Kathy said she is pretty sick.
Had a good trip to Sydney and home again. We took the wheelchair this time instead of the scooter. Which was better.
The visit went better then expected. She said I have a Dystonic tremor and has prescribed some tablets to try and if they don't work maybe botox injection into my neck may help. She couldn't say why I have no strength or why I feel like my feet are clued to the ground when I try to walk.
Had a good nights sleep it took a bit to settle last night but when I did I slept till 3.45am when then till 5.15 when I got up. I am feeling not the best.
I have improved through the day not feel too bad at the moment.

Tuesday has arrived and I am still here, struggling through each day. The next few Tuesdays will see me tell you a little about some giants of the past. Let's start with the Thunderbird.........
Imagine a bird taller than an emu and five times as heavy, this flightless bird would sound like thunder thumping through the bush. It had big, powerful legs with enormous claws, it also had a big strong beak, which it used to eat nuts, fruits and maybe small animals.
