Thanks for the Ride

I have used this loyal hip for a long time -- learning to walk, chasing my sister, climbing, dancing, running, skating, skiing, accelerating, and generally having a fine time. It is now time to give it a rest and get a substitute joint. How about something that looks like it was machined at Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, as sleek and expensive as a new car?

So off I will go on Pearl Harbor Day to have my hip replaced, interested in the whole process, eager to move again without discomfort & this annoying limp, and grateful.

  1. What a good send off. My sister Kate's husband Gary had his hip joints, both of them replaced 20 years ago and then 2 years ago they had to replace one replacement. Improvements have been made in the 20 year old process. So good thing you waited. I have also heard that people feel amazingly better after the healing and all. So best wishes my friend and happy knitting to you.
