Ah yes, those short arms probably thwarted many a T-Rex during their times! Very clever use of the word and the picture!

No ingenuity that was their problem.

Evolution can be cruel.

Awesome creativity!

Grandma's Goulash said...

It appears that short arms are a dino's Achilles heel. Loved it.

Thanks Linda x

You could be right Cheshire Wife ;)

I'm sorry about what I wrote yesterday. I know it must have been infuriating. Really I don't know what the hell I want but having spent years wishing for death it feels hypocritical even to entertain the idea of getting treatment. I know it's probably nothing anyway. Everyone tells me if it hurts it's probably a cyst.

PS you asked why I'd even go to a specialist ~ just because I want to know one way or the other

Akelamalu said...

Thanks CJ

I think you want to get well Gleds x

Mama Zen said...
