Topic: my last should have been first (6 msgs / 152 lines)
1) From: Lynne
spent the greater part of today in the er. came home w/a sling - hairline
fracture in my elbow. it's ironic that i was so worried about my oldest
dog's declining health - and now i'll have an even more difficult time
taking care of him. [once again, as smart as he is, he did not do a 'lassie'
when i fell - was too interested in the vegetation next to the sidewalk,
lol]
was in lots of pain yesterday [as today], but i had my priorities straight.
was running out of homeroast!!
so - i combined the very last of my [2 little packs] caffeinated beans [sigh
- my decaf roasts just aren't coming out that good these days]. one said
'huila' in faded print. the other was 'timor fto gr 1 maubesse.' dumped them
together cuz i knew i had one shot at roasting this [& w/one good arm, too]
today i made a fast chemex pot.
wow.
kept thinking of getting back yo that coffee while i was at the er. it
turned out to be an unbelievable roast. need to order some beans [yeah, i'm
not great on planning] -
                   i will probably be unable to duplicate this fantastic
roast again...

I did a dog-less fall on the last of our ice a few weeks back and ended 
up with a hairline fracture of my right hip. I definitely feel your pain.
I have since learned the cane-in-one-hand variation of bread 
machine/heat gun roasting. We're both lucky these are temporary problems.

it's amazing how much we adapt when needed. the thought of going coffee-less
the next morning gave me plenty of inspiration, though.

yes - i totally agree.
i think i was more frightened than anything else, at first [well - i did
hurt...].
many yrs ago i fell; was trying to get the train up to rockport [ma] for a
nice afternoon of oceanside shop exploring...i never made it. instead, i
landed on my face - literally - and ended up w/a mouth fell of fractured
molars. ouch...my initial fear was that i was having a replay of that.
but man, oh man - the coffee i roasted yesterday, after my fall - that brew
turned out so sweet!
can't wait for tomorrow morning... i have found that i can just about tell
if my roast will turn out great by the aroma. i know there must be
exceptions - but most times i've found this to be true.
i also want to get back to a local store to pick up the flat bottom wok i
saw. hopefully they still hav it... thinking that this will help me roast
batches a bit larger.

Yee-OWCH!  Feel better, Lynne.  In the past two years I've torn  
hamstrings slipping on a wet rear deck and landing on my derriere with  
legs twisted, fractured an elbow tripping on a sidewalk and  
instinctively putting out my hands to break my fall and avoid  
reinjuring my hamstrings--d'OH!--and tripping over a wrinkle in my  
bedroom rug caused by my cats chasing each other and skidding, thus  
fracturing a toe which has never healed properly.  Take whatever good  
stuff the doc prescribes, ice down your elbow often, and let your dog  
instinctively sense what you can and can't do for him--or what you  
need to do more slowly and carefully.

Lynne,  Get well.   I have been getting good results from Nicaragua Dipilto WP decaf, with only a popcorn popper.  It has been the best of the decafs for me.   Bill Copeland

thanks, sandy & bill -
[typing w/one hand is so annoying!]
sandy - you've had more than your share of falls! i have also. in fact, my
oldest daughter told me she was concerned that i'm 'always falling down.'
sheesh - haven't fallen in a few years! and i just bought a couple of rugs
because i kept tripping over the dog blankets, strategically placed on the
hardwood floors for my ocd dog, sammy [who has a fear of floors among many
things].
bill - do you roast a lot of decafs? i'm wondering if i'm doing something
wrong.
hoping to get a wok so i can roast some bigger batches. my son is in his
studying mode, & he drinks more coffee. i have SO converted him, he he...
