    Went and got the hips and knees x rayed last week, Mrs B has made a rendezvous to see the surgeon in Redon, so far ‘no fear’, what a Brave Boy am I. :rose:

    Well done Bill. Wear and tear of hips and knees are painful conditions…if you need the op it will be of huge benefit – pain free!  Modern ops have you back on your feet in no time at all.

    Always worried that they’ll reattach your knee back to front and you’ll walk around in circles! :unsure: Bon chance mon ami.

    Sorry Bill , joking aside , I have had both of my hips replaced ; the first in England 12 years ago and the other here in France at Guingamp 7 years ago . And it’s magic  :yahoo:   :yahoo: . , and no problems, no pain . Of course anyone having an operation is apprehensive, so talking about it is a good thing  . :good:

    The good Lord gave me two feet but alas I have depended too heavily on hands and knees to transport me from the house of liquid enjoyment to mon maison and the joints now need regular lubrication. :yahoo:   :yahoo:   :good:

    You are not alone Bill…..just a matter of time before I need a knee replacement myself due to osteoarthritis compounded with the fact I have osteoporosis.  Needles are the least of your worry….honestly!!!
    Och Gerry you have a braw pair o’ pins!!! ;-)
