          Also, there may be a picture or 2 of the Senor posted, assuming he wakes up long enough to give his permission. At this point, it's not looking goo.

            I'm off to the Pootie Diary to see what El Senor of Ricardo has been up to!

                These are the Physical Therapy critters.  Goddess bless them for the job they do, but dammmmm it hurts!

                I knew they were going to put me through my paces, and I knew it would hurt.  They did.  It did.  I'll live. ;-)

                But now I can "threaten" them with my Sis who has a ferocious man-eating chihuahua named Senor Ricardo!!  That should keep them in line!

                  and got better in no time flat.  He bought himself a damn cane which he hobbled around with for weeks, pausing only to rap it on the floor when he wanted something out of reach, or threatening kids to get off the lawn like Arizona's Senator you-know-who. I finally had to hide it from him.

                    surgery is some years off, yet.

                    So.......

                    I get to keep my cane for waving at whippersnappers, threatening slow moving geezers, and doing a really lame version of "Stompin' At The Savoy" while grumbling under my breath.

                    When I get tired of that, I can offer it to Senator Dumbass in the orifice of his choice.  (snark)

                    Glad Mr C recovered.  Is it true he can still chase you around the dining room table?

                      butt with the cane when we went grocery shopping.  Then he started using it to knock things off of shelves when he couldn't reach them.  He was having waaaay too much fun with that cane, and he kept leaving it in places where I would trip over it.  I had times when I considered grabbing it out of his hands and beating his head in with it.

                      Have you got a torn ligament?  That's what they thought he had, and that he might have to have surgery.  I loaded him up on MSM supplements and what with the therapy, whatever it was healed, THANK GOD!!!!!!!

                      He might try to chase me around the dining room table, but he'd never catch me unless he was wearing the Geo. Clooney mask. :)

                        his (except for the chasing part) than I like to think! ;-D

                        My torn ligaments are in my ankles, but the knee thing is a "torn meniscus" which sounds really pr0n-ish to me.  The pooties like to play with the cane, so they grab it when I'm trying to circumnavigate them.  My life is such a trial! ;-)

                        Good thing they didn't give Mr. C one of those 'grab-it' thingies...heaven help you then!  (They're really handy for top shelf things, though!)

                          a torn meniscus.  Seriously, check out MSM.  I have sciatica from an old back injury, and when I feel an attack coming on, I take MSM and it staves it off.

                          (Mr. C was contemplating those grabber things about the same time he got the cane.)

                            morning, and I find:
                            I can't freakin' type!
                            and
                            All I can come up with for MSM is: main stream media.

                            So, unless you want me to take massive doses of Keith Olbermann
                             (heyyyy :-0 !!) I don't have a clue what MSM is!

                            I have to be very careful of what I take, as almost everything can interact with the meds I must take for my heart.  Stuff like grapefruit juice, air, otc meds and supplements, dirt, and liver.  OK.  Liver is not on that list, i just refuse to eat the stuff.

                            In case MSM  turns out to be something I can take, thanks in advance!

                            MSM (Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane) is a naturally-occurring form of sulfur.

                            I'm starting to think it's you & Mr. C who are related!
                            He has 4 stents and also takes heart meds, but MSM was okayed by his internist.  

                            We've been taking it every day since 1996.  When I feel sciatica coming on, I double the dose for a few days.  Our toy poodle was born with luxating patellas & had to have pins put in both kneecaps.  The first surgery on one knee took forever to heal.  A month before the next surgery I put her on MSM, and she was up and hobbling the very next day.  The vet said he'd never seen anything like it.

                            That said, do I really need to try something with methane?? lol

                            I will check with HeWhoIsToBeFearedAndObeyed, otherwise known as my doctor, and if MSM is ok, I'll certainly try it!

                            Chronic pain is no fun, no matter what Fifty Shades of Gray might imply!

                            Lest I forget what we laughingly refer to as 'my manners'--thanks for the info!

                            man, sometimes your best line of defense is a high dose of methane each day!  :)

                            Here's a little "funny" for you:  The other day I posted one of my sarcastic comments, and a guy replied that I was "one sick pup."  

                            His handle is HarryParatestis.

                            Now that I think about it, the subject was farting terrorists.  Maybe Mr. Paratestis is right! hahahaha!

                            But I mean it in the nicest possible way!! :-D

                            Having spent more than a little time around certain careers where a "sick" sense of humour is not only necessary, but required, it rubs off!  We call it "gallows humour" but it is a sanity saver in the face of things that are just too harsh to bear.  First responders are infamous for the weird jokes they tell...rarely in public.

                            Now I have to go search for the diary about farting terrorists!!  Is that what they meant by WMD?  Or did they really mean SBD??

                            :-D
