Hah, My yard is brown most of the year!
If it's green, it's the clover!

Absolutely right. Harder to heal when your older too and the docs may be unwilling when your older. Update your hardware now if you can.

Pretty cool yours has replaceable parts Terry.

I'm only putting off the labral tear in my left hip for a couple months so I can finish the S&B projects. I'm burning to get out on the road FT in the coach so if I can may delay until Oct. But if the pain comes back all bets are off. Still aches a bit if I over do it but at least I can get off my butt and do some work.

Cant express enough gratitude to all that have served.

Good Evening, Jay, I don't see anything wrong with doing what you are doing (about the hip) I did the same thing for yrs., as long as it works, I had no idea before my surgery that it (the knee) could be rebuilt until after, when he saw me for my first checkup, kinda made me feel better. Be careful not to over do, that shot won't last long, don't ask how I know that . Take care have a good night all.

Good Evening, HH, looks like your getting a piece of the cold there too! Gordon, most of us are running from the snow and cold and your running towards it ! Have fun, be safe, me I'd be staying in the lodge next to the fire. .

Kind of odd, but I started skiing in order to enjoy winter. We had long cold winters and as a survey crew chief it was tough. Started skiing for something to do in the winter besides work.

While we would talk about spring early in the winter, I would also start talking about winter and skiing about the middle of summer. Complaining about the cold weather just makes it seem colder and winter longer. Always seems like it does not last as long if you want it to last longer.

I have skied in conditions that I said I would be complaining about if I had to be out working.

Good Morning Everyone, Gordon, DW says she always wanted to try skiing her family was an active winter participant, then we got together and the only winter activities I did was race on ice, first cars then trucks and then would take our sand rail, that was lots of fun. There was three of us that would always run away from everyone else and one of us mostly would win, unless we broke. We also would once in awhile would take our jeeps and run seasonal use roads that were closed in the winter and not plowed, we'd go to the tail head and put on our sand tires and get up on top of the snow and run the length of the road and hope not to get stuck. 3* this am wind died down, going to go to a RV show like to look at the new rigs and get ideas. Then snow tonight and tomorrow, 6+ they say. Have a great day all.

With respect to Forest Gump, "This thread is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are gonna get". I really enjoy the campfire chat, the build photos, and the info sharing. Interesting that now that we are older a new joint takes on a new meaning.

Have a good day, stay warm.

Hi Guys, Jaygee welcome ! thanks we seem to just enjoy the conversation, we are all just friends here. Love the new "joint" reference . Bap, never made it to Ohio to race stayed pretty much local in NY State. We have some roads like that around here that was bragging rights if you made it. hope your weather is getting better down there its never fun being without power.

Even though I broke my kneecap in a motorcycle accident. And, broke my back in three places and shattered my left leg in a fall.

Just curious!
Yeah Curtis, I too am a motorhead, my brother in law is a Podiatrist and he played in HS, he had been suffering for many years, forcing himself to play golf most everyday and just had the surgery, he also has back troubles, but at least his knees are better! He is a big man about 290 6'7" or well he was think he shortened up a little with his back! Hope he gets that fixed as he is only 66 or 67 be kinda sad to heal other people and have to suffer! Bobby
