Thank you for your concern. The hip (well, actually the pelvic bones) is about 98% back to normal, and the cane is only a stylistic affectation now. As for weight control, living with my husband, a person with very strict ideas on portion control, helped immensely.
x-post WAYWRN - a tie I rarely wear, due to its color, though I believe that it can be worn successfully.

Totally off topic, but, as I am spending today the prisoner of airports and airplanes, I will beg indulgence. In my trip to Naples and Rome I noted one great mystery - where are the toilet seats?

There was lively voting, but in the end, Sebastian won it by a whisker, or, perhaps more accurately, an eyebrow .
As I can attest that Tits is an excellent lunchtime companion.
That was a very strange dream indeed. I have not driven a car since 1989.The trip is winding down fast, and our rendezvous with Bernoulli ended yesterday evening when he took off for the airport and parts eastward. We can attest to his vast knowledge of Rome and its delights, and his presence in Rome during part of our stay greatly enhanced our enjoyment of the city.So far, very little swag from the trip, only a pair of cameo cufflinks from a shop in Naples near the...
Sorry to disappoint, but I will be leaving this fair city tomorrow, not enough time for fine tailoring. I will be in Rome for six nights, which might result in some ready-made swag, but nothing bespoke. Today was taken up with visiting Pompeii, in the rain, no less. At least there weren't any problems with crowds.
