That Old Tree

That Old Tree
After one week in bed with a serious back pain I was up and running (biking), again today. My first stop was the old tree. My next stop was the convenient store, Konsum in Västerhaninge. I was only going to buy two items, and when I noticed that it was a gigantic queue I shouted to one of the employees to open a second register. I can't do that she shouted back and pointed to a police officer. Two stores at the shopping centre had just been robbed, and a couple of employees had overpowered the robber! When I looked around I also noticed the police tape.

Quite a day for that shopping center. The old tree is looking in good shape!

Sounds like some craziness going on but the old tree has a calming effect.

A robbery investigation and no photos??
PS: I admire your old tree.

I'm glad your back is better and you are up and around. Too bad about the robbery but, it sounds like the employees were quick to act. Always love seeing the old tree.

I hope your back is feeling better. It's awful being flattened like that.

The tree is looking good. Glad you are feeling better.

I have what we call a "bad back" and it means that I don't have to do much, sometimes just bending over, to set it off and then I have to take 800mg of Motrin for about a week until the pain goes away. Now, however, I am on blood thinner (warfarin or Coumadin) and am not allowed to take the pain killer Motrin as it could start a run-away blood flow in my stomach. I am also on oxygen all the time now so I am unable to go outside and have to stay indoors most of the time. Any photos I post would be from when I was able to be out and about. I remember your "Old Tree" photo and it was good to see it again.
