That happened two years ago. He didn’t see the doctor for the burn on his hand, just for the burn on his leg.

Hand and leg are all healed up. Back to the normal arthritis in the knees, hips and hands/wrists.

Dumbazz.

The school my two youngest go to had open gym yesterday, and there were a bunch of high school kids there as well. They all wanted to play a game so I thought yeah why not. I'll take it easy on myself and a little running up and down the court can't hurt me. I'm in really good shape in terms of weight so I can move pretty fast and I really don't get as much exercise as I should.


Seemed like a good idea at the time.....

Now my bad knee is giving me fits. Doesn't hurt to walk on it, but it hurts to bend with too much weight on it. Probably just a strain or sprain because I wasn't really doing anything other than running. No crazy euro step moves or fancy footwork while handling the ball.

This getting old and worn out crap is for the birds. :(

My knee has been acting up lately too. I can walk, haul my machine up and down the stairs, sit cross legged like always.

Every once in a while I’ve been getting one or two short stabbing pains, mostly while resting.

Just before my 30's I decided to do some jogging laps and all went well. It was just like in my teens. Until next morning my knee swelled up like a balloon. Long story short I couldn't really walk without extreme pain for 3 years and I had a custom made brace at the cost of 1600$ and it kept slipping down and I wore it about a week until I gave up. So I finally found a neoprene with hinged brace and wore that for 5 years until 6 years passed and the pain finally went away. No way will I even attempt to to jogging again!

SRDH. Have you forgotten your manners? You should not ask the ladies about their age

Out of curiosity what is your age?

Out of fairness, I'm 33.

I'm 42 and do you think I can tough it out till 60? I need a lot of money if I want to retire...

Average mortality death age for a plumber here is 67 years old. So maybe I just need 7 years worth of savings unless I die at 74...
14 years worth of savings x 50 000$ = 700 000$. Nope it ain't happening.

What about you Mr downhill?
