    Yeah… well. Sometimes I have to remind myself I am mortal…
    Like I told the recovery nurse after surgery, “My plan is to do a Brody up to my coffin and fall in, my body totally trashed! I have a new one waiting for me in the afterlife.” :whistling:

    I got Clearance Clarance today to ride my bike from the Doc.
    I have a 30 miler planned for tomorrow. Let you know how it goes.
    Joking. No 30 miler. Going for a putt with Les and Fadi. ;)

    I have similar plans because "Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely, in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out and beat up shouting "Holy Crap, what a ride!"

    Going to the Doc’s… again.
    Diagnosed with a bizarre thingy. A thing called Patella Clunk. Look it up…
    Aftermarket knees that can develop scar tissue that interferes with the knee cap as the knee flexes during cycling. …or when you stand up out of a chair, or the toilet, or… well you get the picture. Not the toilet one I hope.
    Let you know how THAT goes… :whistling:

    I'd imagine that the doc can remove excess scar tissue via arthroscopic surgery?

    Agreed!
    Sitting in the waiting room now.
    I just wanna know:
    When can they do it?
    How long would recovery be?
    How much will it cost?
    And…
    Will Medicare pay for it?
    :cool:;)

    Yup! Just left.
    It is covered.
    Scheduled for Friday May 31st.
    Simple procedure, and recovery is about 2 weeks.
    Fingers crossed.

    Wow! What? That was fast! My doc requires another MRI If I want my knee worked on plus another 4-6 week wait before surgery. You must have gone to your appointment looking grey while holding your knee (s) with a look of grimace on your face.

    Actually..
    This dude was totally cool. His wife is a mountain bike coach for a high school race team, his kids are all mountain bikers. I just he work on me as if I was a Ferrari and not a Volkswagon and he said I got your back Brothah.
    It’s very different here.

    Hah!
    When we go to a restaurant and ask if I want my receipt, I tell them, “Well it’s not like I’m going to return the meal…”
    They laugh…
    …maybe out of old man kindness. ;)

    ARKANSAS:

    I've been watching high speed police pursuit videos on YT. It seems that the majority of them are from Arkansas and what shakes my soul is the speed at which the law enforcement in that state will perform a PIT maneuver. Just WOW?! o_O

    Arkansas IS NOT a good state to flee from the police in. :eek::laugh:

    Mikie, any input on the subject?
