Thanks pop pop. I am heading in that direction. Seems I am always putting it off for one reason or another. I managed to lose 10# and my knees are thanking me for it. I can actually tell the difference. Good luck to you brother!

Yeah. I know.
I'm getting there.
Knee replacement: If I live long enough.


I'm sorry that steroids didn't help.
I hope that the lubricant (maybe some sort of colloid) will do some good.

Everything Else / Knee Pain
« Last post by pop pop on July 04, 2018, 05:35:19 AM »
Went today to see if my right knee was ready to be replaced. My left knee replacement(in March) is doing great.

They x rayed the right one and determined I still had enough cartledge and did not warrant replacement at this time. My knee cap has no cartledge so it is where my intense pain is coming from.

They are going to put a series of shots(3, one per next three weeks) in my right knee and are hopeful that will take care of the pain. I don't know what it is called, but it is some kind of lubricant and suppose to lube the bones and adhere to the cartledge thereby helping.

The Steriod shots are not lasting but 3 weeks and run my blood sugar through the roof after taking them.

Will post results, for those suffering from knee pain who may be interested. By the way, I should have had the knee surgery, on my left knee, long ago. I highly recommend it.

The replacement has its short cummings, but then again they will never be as good as God gave you. I have had very little problems and there is very little pain in my left knee now. I'll say again "I highly recommend the replacement surgery" if you need it.

Well, I confess.
There was a gun, years ago, that I carried for a while without ever firing a single round through it.

To say I was complacent and overconfident would be an understatement.

Those days are long gone. Nowadays I just passed the 1000 round mark with the EDC and I'm thinking I'd like to run another thousand through it, just to make sure!

I'd like to think I'm getting wiser with the years.

Everything Else / Teaching One's Own To Do Good Deeds
« Last post by pop pop on June 28, 2018, 10:04:34 AM »
Well, a friend at church, my traveling friend Bill, had a bad fall last week. He was getting ready to go spend a week in Florida and was hurrying to get he 3 acer yard mowed. He fell on a ramp going into where he stores his mowers.

Needless to say, he is down and several of us (4 two other church brothers run Bill's mowers) went over and mowed his yard this morning. My son-in-law has two commercial front mounted mowers, and I borrowed them along with his 14 year old son, whom his dad and I are trying to teach to "do a kindness" to those who may be in need. I believe this is a learned thing, and his dad can't say no to anyone.

I got the boy up at 6 AM and we traveled to Hardees and got a biscuit and a drink and proceeded to mow 3 acers before most people had breakfast this morning. Good thing because we have been deluged with a week of spiritic rain and it is raining cats and dogs right now.

I am glad to say Mason did a wonderful job and never said one cross word going over or returning home. Bill tried to pay him and he refused to take it. All I can say is "Atta-Boy" Mason and thanks to his dad for furnishing the hardware. I will call Mason this afternoon, and thank him myself. Training is good but we all must be thankful when it accomplished successfully.

This young man won a 10,000. dollar scholarship to a college as he won the TN State Championship in archery this past year. He also competes in Trap and is on the school trap team. Mason also loves to fish and says he wants to become a Conservation Officer/Game Warden. I hope he will be successful. He is a good boy. You just gotta Love-em.

Everything Else / Re: Family Obligation

I have to agree with OR53: The "obligation" is only that of one caring human being for another. If you love humanity, than you take care of the needs of others as best you can.

There is no legal obligation to care for anyone, except your children until they reach adulthood (or perhaps forever, if they are disastrously impaired).
Your only obligation to anyone else comes entirely from your own compassion, something with which you are obviously very well endowed.

You're a good man, Roger, and your wife is a very good sister.
