Miss me much?


Guess this’ll make it kinda hard for you to kneel in my presence for a while… :wink:

Is @TomG still stoned, and if so, is he home or away? :grin:


I guess the latest research is true that the over 55 demographics is the one that embraces smart home gadgets. Way to go gizzards!:rofl::rofl::rofl:


The second stomach of a bird, not counting the crop or craw as the first; the bulbous or muscular…

Yikes. That’s enough definition for me. :slight_smile:

I’m way past retirement age, but I choose to work because I know that the day I stop working, I’ll die. I know it’s not related but I had to put it out there :rofl:

My knees are shot but the pain is bearable. Hopefully you will get some good drugs.

My brother in law (68) had knee surgery a few months ago. Not much pain.
A good friend had both knees rebuilt. Said the pain was bearable.

Every person’s pain level is different. I hope yours is a level 1 or lower.


I have a medical card… :sunglasses:


You lost me here :joy:

Thank you and hit me up any time.

I can’t wait to see how they compare, 2015 (manual) vs 2023 (computer guided).

Thanks. I’m expecting the worst and hoping for the better.

Picked up my pre and post-op drugs today :grin:

Some drugs can be your best friend or your worst enemy when they don’t work.

Thank you

Should be an interesting comparison. My sister had one knee done in 2020, and two friends have have one within the last few months and all three reported no major problems. My sister was hiking in the Rockies less than two weeks after surgery.

Hope the surgery goes well for you.

My wife recently had both ureters opened up due to recurring UTIs.

All she has is 4 poke marks on her stomach from each surgery. Can barely see them now.

Compared to my dad, who had his gall bladder removed about 60 years ago. The scar was almost as long as his torso.

Hope you’re doing well now. I have to say this is one of the most interesting reads so far. I usually don’t read b’cuz I tire of reading problems with equipment, since I’m not much help and have my own frustrations with them. Even if you were bored, found this different from the usual and comments more amusing. Sorry for your pain, but thank you for sharing.

Wife had knee replacement and was walking same day. Recovery for a single knew replacement is not terrible based on her experience. I had to be around a lot to assist her and encourage her, but she did walk every day. Some strong post-surgury drugs for sure. And her knee was huge after surgery during recovery period. Looks normal now minus the vertical scar across the knee.

No knee chopping for me since I have a titanium plate and a bunch of these holding one together after one of my great ladder tricks. I had this one removed because the head was just below the skin and I kept bumping it into things=pain.

I just barfed on my cell phone.

Not a fan of medical stuff.

3" and SO clean

The doctor used a short + hand held screw driver to remove it and I felt every half turn. He laughed and said “I can’t numb your bones” and the nurse kept yelling at me to breath. :rofl: :rofl:
