years ago, Mother had a dislocated shoulder, and it took 4
men to pull it back into the socket, because of the strength
she had from lifting herself, dozens of times a day.
When it went back into place, the pop it made, sounded like
a gun shot.
The Dr. said he had never seen muscle like hers, even on
grown men. He told her back then, that one day something was
going to give out, which it did, because your body is not
made, to use your arms for legs.
As she aged she got to where she couldn't move herself
around at all.
She always wore leather mittens when she went out anywhere,
other than the house. Even though she had calluses on her
hands, as I am sure Johnny had, it would be like walking
Try it!!! It aint fun. Have you ever tried to find leather
mittens in Florida??? I have, and over the years, had some
real strange looks, no wonder I am the way I am.
