Behave yourself. You do not need it.

Hey, did you know that there is no real peanut butter in the Reese's Peanut butter cups? The oil in the nuts would go rancid. So they had to come up with a formula to resemble peanut butter.

Not unless you want to stand on the round slippery battery. And it doesn't have a side car. I am not licensed for passengers. It is not a taxi.

Addie, you're no fun! I have been really good all d...um I mean week, ya, that's it!

Actually I settled for a single small scoop of breyers vanilla with fresh pineapple and strawberries....probably twice as much fruit as ice cream!

That's a good girl. Now don't you feel proud of yourself?

He said I can put it off for a little while. He told me the discomfort of the present state will determine how long I can put it off.

My hands? They're in worse shape and he's referring me to a very well-respected hand care center, Kleinert Kurtz, in Louisville, which is about 300 miles from here. They're about one of the best in the country and our doctor has great confidence in their skills and care.

My hands are going down faster than my knee so I think I'll address that issue first, plus Glenn was told today he needed a total knee replacement, too. His is probably in as bad shape as mine.

I can put up with it a while longer but Glenn's knee is throwing his whole skeletal system off and he's having back issues as a result. He had major back surgery three years ago and we don't want to undo any of that.

Lemme tell you...gettin' old ain't for sissies.
So sorry, Katie! Just don't both of you get your knees done at the same time...there's such a thing as too much sharing.

Sorry to hear all this painful stuff. I will vouch for knee replacement! My sister has had both knees done and is a different woman as a result. She was the world's worst candidate but came through with flying colors and never looked back.
