It has been a dismal spring for me, I'm not complaining, just stating the facts. I lost a uncle, a good friend, continue to struggle with my RA and have a new job bid that I have 5 tests that I must pass to keep the job. Forgot to mention the flooding here also.

I always looked up to Uncle Jim. He played pro baseball for 18 years with 12 years in the majors. He was a switch hitter and right handed hit 117 home runs, 401 RBI with a .240 batting average. As a left hander he hit .270 with 11 home runs and 46 RBI. When I was young, he was larger than life to me. I remember watching him play on tv, then every winter getting to see him. Once he retired from ball, he moved back close and I would go spend the night at their house. As a matter of fact, on his farm is where I learned to ride a motorcycle. 

I'm switching meds next month and hoping that will bring me some relief. We are going to Colorado in September and I have to feel better for that trip.
