As I said in the prior selfie-post, I am sure I am just trying to convince myself that I am still alive — albeit a hopeless cripple on crutches. You can actually see my crutches in the 2nd picture.

This was taken at home. I am not getting about much for obvious reasons. We have four bathrooms in the house, and this was the mirror in one of them.

‘Outback Steakhouse’ in Bedford, NH.

I must have got some water on my right chin while washing my hands. I am not crying. I should but that will not fix my problems.

Five days after my major knee surgery on Thursday, March 7, 2019. This was on the way back from seeing the surgeon, for the first time, since the operation. It was just to get the original dressing taken off.

Stopped, for the very first time, at the Rochester “Granite Steak & Grill”. Took this picture there.

P.S., I didn’t do a very good job shaving.

Anura Guruge selfie knee surgery



Second day after my major knee surgery on Thursday, March 7, 2019. Just about 48-hours because the ‘what had been outstandingnerve block catheter was running out of juice — exactly as they had told me.

First outing since the surgery. We had to go to the dump. Took our Ford Taurus. Not as easy getting into it as is the Nissan Quest. But, I managed.

I couldn’t get in and out. I was stuck in the car. Then I saw this apparition in the rearview mirror. Couldn’t resist.

Went to the Cape for a long weekend, March 1 – 3, 2019. We had booked it, to coincide with New Hampshire school vacations, a month ago. Given that it was winter we knew we could be taking a chance with the weather, but we were willing to risk it.

As it transpired there was quite the snowstorm at the Cape Friday night into Saturday afternoon. At least 5″, 8″ or more in some places. But, we are from New Hampshire and we are used to snow. So, we did venture out, on Saturday morning, in the snow. Went as far as Wellfleet — for lunch. The road were not plowed very well so the going was slow.

Despite the weather I turned into the ‘Cape Cod National Seashore‘. That is how we saw this light — in the snow. We went back the next day — Sunday. That was a beautiful day. Bright sunshine and clear, blue skies. You can tell which pictures were taken when. On Sunday we also got to visit the ‘Highland Light‘, further up north.

Enjoy.

Saw the sign for it, off Route 6, as we were driving, on Sunday, to Provincetown. I had to go and have a look. I like lighthouses. I am glad I turned off. Stately & dignified lighthouse.

We had quite the snowstorm at the Cape the day before. So, the ground was covered in fresh snow. First people we encountered were a young couple cross-country skiing around the golf course that surrounds the lighthouse site. The snow gave it a whole different perspective. Plus, it was a beautiful sunny day with clear blue skies. The picture, in Wikipedia, taken in the Summer looks so different. Hopefully one day I might be able to revisit when there isn’t any snow and there is greenery around.

As the last big picture above testifies, the lighthouse was moved inland, 450′, in 1996.
