"Shoulder Check," by Ched Myers

Ched Myers - Tue, 01/03/2017 - 3:04pm

A rare personal note.

The signs were, in retrospect, a sign.   Chugging down to Ventura in our biodiesel Jetta on our way to a consultation with an orthopedic surgeon, we passed a road sign telling us there was "shoulder work ahead."  No kidding, I thought ruefully.  But the next sign did not bode well.
