Yeechy Errands...

Don't you hate it when errands stack up and stack up and stack up until you have no choice? It was that kind of day...

I've been [putting off a trip to the doctor to have my right knee "shot up" with magic, genetically engineered collagen and enough cortisone for at least a high school football team, but it finally caught up with me...that bone-against-bone grinding, to use a technical term, sucks. So once every 12-14 months I go get the ole knee joint chrome-plated.

Unfortunately, I waited about a month too long this time (because I'm convinced, convinced I tell you, that it's miraculously going to heal itself). Sadly, a ll those triathlons, marathons, long-distance bike races, jumping out of perfectly good airplanes and the host of stupid things I did to entertain myself have taken their toll. I was laughing today with my SG producer, John Carter, who's a marathon guy and who was laughing at me tinkering together my knees. "Do you think this isn't a vision of your future?" I said.

I'll put off the replacement knees as long as I can!

Marshal and I are working on a couple of totally cool Internet projects, including a documentary on Project Appleseed (this will be so much fun!).

I've been doing a lot of dry-firing with the C&S GP-100. I am convinced it is the best GP-100 on earth, possibly in the Known Universe. I'll be taking pictures this weekend. Six-inch barrel, Bowen rear sights, green fiber-optic front, Hogue "camp-lamo" big butt grips...I'm loving it!

I feel your pain. As I put ito to people:
"It's not the age, but the mileage. And, my mileage includes way to many rough roads carrying heavy loads on my back."

Michael,
I bought a expensive Donjoy kneebrace, it is worth every penny. It pushes the outside of my knee in so I work on what cartilage I have left not bone on bone. Take a look.
