I think I would like it though, but to include my back as well

I bought my wife and daughter size 13 mens LeBron James and Dwane Wade Basketball shoes for christmas at Dick's Sporting - Along with the return receipt... They were estatic! After they were returned, they got to buy whatever they wanted (and did yesterday).

I've learned not to buy clothing for the women in my life!

That looks really good. Right now the weapon of choice is a heated mattress pad; turned on high and placed on top of the bed it's like a full - body heating pad.

My daughter asked/received one of those from her boyfriend (nice guy!).. It was weighted. So a fairly heavy heating blanket - she is a Physical therapist, so I suspect it is good for orthopedic issues ???

I read a story once about a fellow who bought a dress for his wife -- 2 sizes too small -- but he had the clerk hold an identical dress in his wife's correct size... she loved the dress and loved that he thought her smaller than she really was....

No go, wifey is too astute. Pandering will get me killed, chopped into little bits and stuffed into the septic tank. She is a chemist and knows what CSI doesn't show. There will be no evidence... I'll be toast. :eek: (But for now, I think she loves me! maybe).

I tried to buy one from Amazon but they won't sell it to Australia and Merissa could do with one of these, she uses a rice bag but it doesn't cover the shoulder blades only the neck and she is always complaining about shoulder blade and neck pains so, I may need to find a way to buy one somewhere...!

Thanks for the link, Sharon..!

Cheers

It wouldn't work in Australia anyway. Different electrical systems.

Thank you for letting me know.

Years ago we were shopping to go to Hawaii. My husband held up a pair of size 8 shorts and said they looked like they would fit me. Love is blind! Not by three sizes or so! Love that man.

800mg of Motrin 3 times a day is my answer to what ails me, my knees and back. I get all I can take from the VA plus...all the other drugs to counteract the side effects from the amount of Motrin I have to take. Tried the heating blankets but they just made me sweat a bunch.

Not to hijack Sharon's thread, but I guess I really lucked out... at 77 years I have very few aches or pains, (unless I do something stupid in the shop and get whacked, hacked or cut..) I do wake up with a little stiffness in the back, but 2 Aleves first thing in the morning and I'm good to go.

I have RA, like George's wife does, unfortunately. My mom had it and sweet generous lady that she was, shared it with me!

There was a talk so radio personality in Atlanta when I lived there. He always said: "buy petitie and keep the receipt"
