Kat Indpls IN (7:07:19 PM): some hardware stores if they are local ones and you ask nicely will give you for free the scratched plexiglass

helen050959 (7:07:33 PM): cranking by hand throws my shoulder into an RA flare

Kat Indpls IN (7:08:32 PM): yep more you move the better you are

helen050959 (7:08:45 PM): with ra sometimes the 'moving' throws you into a flare and then you can't move at all
