I had yet another follow up visit with my orthopedic surgeon this past week. He took more x-rays ... still looking good. He's still concerned about the kneecap dislocation. I myself have noticed that my stability is increasing, so I don't think I'm as worried as he is about it. Yet I do think my gait goes wonky sometimes if I'm not being careful. Anyone walking in back of me might think I've imbibed. Uh-oh! I also still have some pain issues, usually after putting stress on the knee. But it's still better than pre-surgery!
Welp, I've not much more to say -- onto the photos for the week! Clicking on an image will open it larger in a new window, then just hit back on your browser to return to the blog.
They might have been up for a while, but I just saw them this week. Corner of Watchung and East Front, Plainfield.

This little neglected garden on West Union Avenue in Bound Brook sported some green and even a few plump red tomatoes.

(Although they definitely have a lot fewer choices for their pollen gathering!)
This rather long beetle was scrambling through the grass alongside the sidewalk. So I shot him. Then I looked him up. Eek! If handled, they emit a poison which causes blisters which remind me of shingles blisters. I'm glad I let him run!
The church is getting a wash down. Oh ... and it's not an "inclosive community" -- the other sign reads "inclusive." Corner of West Union Avenue and Mountain Avenue, Bound Brook
Well, this kind of creeps me out. East Maple Avenue, Bound Brook
The house with the creepy tree ...
Um. Okay. I took this shot in the bus I take to the orthopedic surgeon's office. After you request a stop, that's what you get. The regular town-to-town buses don't do this, only the style of the ones which go in and out of Manhattan. They're similar to a Greyhound bus sans the bathroom.
But keep an eye on that bird! East Second Street, Plainfield.
I messed with this aged faded practically useless sign. East Second Street, Plainfield.
These had to be well over seven feet high. I took the shot looking up over a wooden fence that was much taller than I am. This was taken on East Second Street, but the flowers are actually growing at the end of the ScottWay Homes on East Front Street in Plainfield.
This is at the corner of East Front and Richmond where the woman decorates the lawn for every holiday and grows gorgeous flowers.
