Well, lt seems to be holding just fine. I have a clinic appointment tomorrow (2-15). At that time the med staff will do a evaluation based on swelling, pain, weight bearing and mobility. Pretty sure that will turn out fine. Pain control is more of a issue this time around, oxy does build up a tolerance level. We'll have a discussion about that.
Old/New knee is getting stronger every week. Still a long ways to go with flexibility and strength but definite improvement. Thanks for asking.

Was this a repeat replacement on this knee?

I had both knees done 5 years ago. Right one is having issues. I might be looking at round 2 on it already.

    Yes when I got back in the car and had to drive him back to the Barracks with a "tucked football hold" that right red eye stared at me the whole way thinking "I will rip your fucking eyes out and skull fuck you" if given the chance.

    Looks to be a young bird.

    He was just sitting in the high speed lane with a dead pidgeon (@Bender would you like the corpse?) laying nearby.

    Usually they are stunned from flying into the side of a vehicle but this guy shows no external injury. Might have misjudged his pidgeon kill and smacked asphalt.

    Whatever healthy animals usually don't let people pick them up. I split my breeches from balls to boot top making the grab, pretty typical, the 1930s uniforms look good but aren't made for athletics.

    Environmental Police are coming to pick him up for a ride to the vet clinic.

    Morning. Short history. I've had knee issues since my early teens. Leading a mostly physical lifestyle it was no surprise that things wore out. In December of 2012 I had bilateral partial knee replacements on both knees at the same time. Basically, the inside half of both knees were bone on bone and replaced with prosthetics.

    Fast forward to October 2020.

    My right knee blew up to the size of a small football. The ortho surgeon removed 80 cc's of blood and determined the lower half of the implant was loose, which created a cyst which in turn caused the blood buildup. Solution; full knee replacement. The right knee was replaced 11/16/20 and the left knee 2/1/21. My full time job is rehab because I can't do anything else. Yes, it sucks.

    That's the short version. If you doubt the integrity of your implants the only real way to determine a problem is x-rays. Inflammation and swelling are uncomfortable but not necessarily indicators. X-rays give a inside look.

    PM if you have any questions. C. S.

    Only a crazy man would grab that bird 😲 I watched the hawk in my picture puncture that English Sparrow with its talons like it was cotton ball!
    I couldn't see your pictures above earlier but I can see them now.

    Cool pic. Can't find at the moment but I've got a picture of me holding a peregrine falcon I caught on Apalachicola NF in 1995. Was on the ground and I was taking pics, getting closer and closer but it didn't move. Obviously something wrong so I was able to get a shirt over it and take to vet/rehabber. Died next day and speculation was it was migrating, missed a meal or two and just ran out of steam.

    That "accidentally" gets dropped in the front piece. But I'm pretty certain some seed is gonna get "accidentally" dropped in that clearcut. But it's not a food plot. 😄






    I hear corn fed elk are fine eatin. I don't know seasons on that sort of thing. I did get my new baby seal clubbing permit. The rules have changed. If there were any to begin with.

    Yup, looks like a young Coopers Hawk. We have a small group of them in town and they know where every bird feeder is located.

    Helping someone fix a Remington 7400. Not cycling right, so starting with cleaning the gas port, orifice ball, and all that jazz. Maybe we’ll get lucky and this will fix it. View attachment 7558920
    Well, with (maybe) Tom Johnston from The Doobie Brothers, and @Geno C. watching over you, you can't go wrong!

    Clearing off the driveway yesterday morning and it's about 3*. I noticed a bat flying around my security light, really?
    You can see it on the lower right screen flying upward at 21 seconds and after watching the video I see it's chasing bugs. 🤷‍♂️

    Those little guys keep hanging out. I move them, but they always find their way back to creeping on me. Not really as much help as I’d like from them.

    On a new view. The 7400 needs some parts, so waiting for numrich to deliver.

    had a serious talk with the bug last night. Told her she had too many things going on and preceded to strip some unnecessary wiring from her. Wish I had a before picture, but it was a disaster. The pile is what I removed, still may get a few more loose ends today.

    Just can’t find the motivation today. Don’t desperately need it , but I’m swapping some other parts and this is easy to do while those happen. Fucking rain and cool weather makes me want to sit and watch it with a warm cup of coffee. 1104A79A-D66C-4F8D-9978-2FFEE6060F19.jpeg
