    You're thinking of another poster who dances. I run from snakes here on the ranch. :) And an occasional cow who has a new calf.
    You ought to combine these two problems to solve them! Train this into your cows:
    Snakes are bad for calves.... Snakes are bad for calves....


    Man, knees are the worst. I ruined mine by photographing Indian rodeo for 15 years.
    But I'm sure they aren't as bad as yours.
    Not necessarily; we'd (k)need to compare notes in serious detail (in private) to evaluate that. But each of us has a pretty good idea what the other faces.

    And you're right, knee trouble just sux. For either of us or anyone else who has it.

    Did you do something in particular to damage them?
    Nope. One fine day in 2006 I entered the building I worked in a young, able man and, on the way out, the right knee went crack and down I went! When I finally managed to get out of the building, I was the semi-cripple I am today; the knees haven't ever worked right since, and eventually the left one became involved (probably because of the extra burden it was carrying because I favored the right one).

    The orthopedic surgeon says that I wore the knees out with the physical activity I used to keep the obesity (a lifelong problem for me) down to a dull roar and to keep my pollution footprint small.

    I still get around except when I'm down. I have a lot of trouble getting up. I was looking into some lower cabinets and scooting around because I couldn't get up. My dogs thought I was playing so they jumped me and pulled me around the kitchen by my jean legs. It was hilarious.
    Yeppers, know that one TOO well! And, having no other animals than a pair of cats, they can't even drag me around worth a damn!!  

    And give your woozles a pet for me!  :-)
