    :D

    I knew this one was going to get good. It’s not even close to “peak season” yet…

    My radiologist friend says I need some plain films. I’m not shy about doing healthcare…when it can do something for me. :geek:

    When your other ankle is as F’ed up as mine you see this injury as trivial and routine. No bones sticking out, no weird angles; good to go with a little rest.

    Good thoughts, pal. :)

    Yesterday I rolled by some small aspen stands. The pale greens and yellow backlit by partial sun looked strikingly electrified. I thought hey, I should snap some pics. Then I thought how the intensity nuance never translates to backlit pixels or reflective art. So on I rode. Just another conversation in the woods… :rolleyes::geek:


    You and the weez are on it! :thumbsup:

    Agree, it should be peaking soon. Starting to bruise on the good side, so, we’re getting there. :geek:

    Healing vibes, brother. I know your pay-to-play mental game is strong, and this will be over in a flash.

    A bit of a dud for colors, but the faint bruise made it to my toes and a few inches below my knee.

    Thanks for the wellness wishes. I'm RICE'ing like mad and it's no issue to bear weight and walk around, so I'm hopeful.

    In no way is this meant as an upstage.
    I can’t provide a cleaver clever called Fall Colors.
    But I can certainly share I have the Autumn Blues…:rolleyes:
    Yuck!

    Hah, I got shamed on this one! Good leg-peeper material, Mikie. :thumbsup:

    Is it weird that blood pools at the bottom on the foot but not into the heel pad? Forced out by pressure or not enough vessels?

    Herzie, you belong in this thread. :)

    My leg looked like that when we got married 32 years ago too. But the leg works pretty well, despite its appearance.

    And now, back to the man of the hour, the man of the house, the man with two new knees!

    Oh, hey! That was not the intent. Your creative writing skills ALWAYS inspire me. Fall Colors, another great double meaning phrase. I was just trying share that I had Autumn Blues, a feeble attempt in your world of greatness! :thumbsup:
