    Once again, a little gem of a performance, Jill. Those triplets are so clean and precise.

    Lovely playing Jill. I play the old time version of that reel called Crockett's Honeymoon. I like the Irish one, too, and I think the OT is based on that one.

    Tune of the Week Project on hold: Well folks I was so close, only 4 tunes left to complete the project, but yesterday I fell and shattered my left kneecap - surgery likely in the next 10 days or so though god knows how I'll pay for it as I'm one of the many uninsured people living in the States. Am basically immobile as I can't use my left leg at all without excruciating pain occurring so that rules out setting up all my recording gear. Will hopefully wrap up the last four tunes sometime in the New Year, looking at about 8 weeks of recovery time, fingers crossed if no complications.

    Jill, that is so sad to hear. I have enjoyed your tunes on that wonderful Girouard mandolin since the beginning. I hope the surgery and rehab goes well. I am in the same boat as you as far as insurance goes, hoping every day things don't go south. Best wishes.

    That must have been one heck of a fall! Hope you get it sorted quickly! On a bright side you do get to move back home!

    Ouch...having endured a couple of knee injuries and surgeries I can empathize...what a setback! Jill, I hope you're able to recover quickly enough for your transition home...thoughts and prayers coming your way.

    Jill, so sorry to hear of your misfortune and I know that you will have great support here in the MC where we all enjoy your postings so much. While you convalesce you can practise that great wee tune Banish Misfortune. Hope all goes well with the surgery.

    Good luck with the operation tomorrow Jill, knees can be very painful, I feel for you.

    Just to hopefully make you feel better, I tell you that one time I fell backwards off the (tall) roof of a house/building site in California. I remember falling, thinking, hurry up, let’s get this over with. No insurance.
    Bad story, couldn’t call an ambulance or doctor. Walked home half a mile, it took me over an hour with stops.
    At one stage a man came out of his house to complain about me lying on his lawn, I just laughed. He was afraid, and I guess thought that I was on drugs and threatened to call the cops.
    I couldn’t explain, felt shamed, and moved on.
    Terrible back and leg pain, but I knew I had to get home before the swelling built up or I lost consciousness.
    Later I realised that at least one vertebrae was fractured. I thought about this, in and out of consciousness for five days, at home in bed. Then I suddenly realised that I wasn’t going to be completely crippled, and would still be able to play guitar. I smiled. My friends brought me food and they started to all eat together in the evenings...

    Anyway, all of that to say that three, nearly four weeks later, when my friends saw that I could sort of walk again, they said I was soooo lucky!
    Well the luck of the Irish to you too, Jill -you are soooo lucky. Thanks again for all of the wonderful tunes and the dedication.
    And I hope you get the care that people deserve.

    Good to hear Jill I hope you feel better ASAP! Make sure you follow through with all your PT once it begins and after it’s over, so many people think once physical therapy is over they can call it quits but now that your knee has been worked on keeping it in shape will be very important.

    I'll echo John with his good advice. For many of us, time home during any recovery also means time away from work/income...hope you're not badly impacted by this.

    Best wishes for a quick recovery!

    Less painful this past week, so that's a good thing! Off out to a follow up appointment later today, where they'll take out the stitches, loosen the hinge on me knee brace a wee bit so that I've got a tiny bit of range of motion and get me started on physical therapy. Am anticipating that the ability to bend me knee a wee bit plus the PT will = pain but will just push thru as I'm desperate to do all the right stuff so I can eventually return to full mobility - being housebound is driving me mad! Hope ye had a lovely Christmas, and all the best for the New Year!

    I told my PT throughout the therapy that he was more of a "physical terrorist" [and he laughed because nobody had called him that before], but followed the program and had full recovery both times!

    Happy new year!
