I was at an estate sale recently, a large old house in the downtown area. A large basement plus three floors, I would love to see who lived there. Animal print fabrics, a lot of Chinese themed items, and some nice art work. I fell in love with this etching by Jack R. Miller, I purchased three smaller etchings as well. I would love to keep it, but my business would never get anywhere that way. So I have it listed, and I am working on listing the others -Faces, Biloxi Tugger, and Shrimp Boat. You can find this here.

I'm running behind as usual, but I did go back to the doctor after two weeks, he checked the new x-ray and was surprised, he said my foot was healing and doing very well. He wasn't going to take a new x-ray, I think he thought it was too soon, (he's the one who told me to come back in 2 or 3 weeks). I did use Comfrey to try and encourage healing, mostly I just used the leaves, but several times I did include some root. I do think this helped. I used my mortar and pestle on 5-6 leaves, poured steaming water on these, let them set for a few minutes, (and sometimes I would even drink the tea from the leaves). After draining the liquid I placed cheese cloth on a long strip of plastic wrap. Then I managed to wrap this around my foot, placing the leaves on top, and putting my brace back on. I would usually sleep with the wrap on so it had plenty of time to sink in. I did this every other night or so, as it did sometimes make my foot itch a bit.
I am still keeping it wrapped with the brace, but it is doing much better. I go back in 4 weeks to have it checked.
