…after getting the reports on the MRI on my knee, I decided Tuesday was Tequila Tuesday! Cuidado Tequila Blanco, distributed by Denver's Mile High Distillery and billed as the best tequila in the world (which is kinda a reach…sorry), Patron Orange Liqueur, and fresh lemon juice. Astringent, but perfect with flash grilled mahi dusted with New Mexico red chili powder and local green beans with lemon butter. Timed everything out perfectly, and dinner was excellent.
Did decide not to spend the afternoon at the range, but will do so tomorrow, running the G19 with the RMR to start tuning up for that episode of SHOOTING GALLERY.
The MRI? The short story is my knee is slagged — "repetitive use athletic injury" — in short, the marathons, ultras, triathlons and jumping out of perfectly good airplanes and off perfectly stable mountains has come home to roost. Well, it was never going to be free, was it? Have to get at CT scan to see if we can "resurface" the knee rather than replace it. Fingers crossed here. But 2 things are certain…I'll do Noveske again next year and do better, and somewhere in Canada there's a caribou with my name on him.
