taxy, the tank is only about 20 gallons, and there's too many beasts in it already. the turtle has gone from the size of a half dollar piece to bigger than my hand in just 4 years.

my boy really wants a proper 50 gallon tank or bigger for just fish, but that will have to wait. and then, of course, we will have little sharks. thanks for the tip on a cleaner fish. i'll have to remember that.

No, he was my friend and I took the turtles out there myself and they still live there, we see them about once a year. Friend has an alligator, too...his name is Samsonite...

Getting ready for early bedtime. I fell again today, twisted my ankle on the edge of the sidewalk ended up face down in the grass (at least it wasn't concrete this time) banged up my right knee, again. Sprained my right hand and wrist. Not enough to not use it, just enough to make it ache more than usual.

Just ache all over, the right more than the left. But, I don't know how many more hits my right knee can take, it's a wonder my kneecap isn't mush by now. It does have an extra crease in it today, but it doesn't hurt.

i'm sorry you wiped out, fee.

has your doc checked your meniscus? your patella is just a bone cap as you know, but when the meniscus or one of the three cruciate ligaments go, watch out.

can you do a soft tissue scan of a meniscus?

also, look into the y angle of the knee in relation to your hips with a sports doc. women have a wider knee angle due to their hips (hubba hubba ), so more stress is put on said knee ligaments and cartiledge.

Just curious, why do you know this stuff? Knee injuries?

I've broken my patella twice and I didn't know all of that.
