One of My Rights Is To

Change My Mind
When you get old, there is one thing you have the right to do. And that’s to change your mind about something.

Yes, I have changed my mind about seeing an orthopedic specialist about my knees. You may recall that last week I saw my arthritis doctor who x-rayed my knees and said I needed knee replacements. At that time I thought I might wait until next year to see a specialist. I decided it might be best to go ahead and see the specialist now as there might be some interim treatment that might delay knee replacement surgery. I have a 2:00 PM appointment today.

(And with the government planning to take over our health care, I thought it might be good to get with a specialist now. The government may decide that I am too old and not deserving of knee replacements, and I might need to act fast.)

Fishing Report
P1060048-1Ralph and I were on South Holston lake yesterday,  trolling some spoons & plugs, and drowning a few night crawlers. We had a great day! We brought home 11 fish: 6 walleye, 4 lake trout, and 1 rainbow trout. The 6 walleye weighed a total of 28 pounds, and the largest was a little over 7 pounds. All the fish together weighed a little over 40 pounds.

Joke of the Day

Three strings walk into a bar. The first string walks up to the bartender and says, "Gimme a drink."

The bartender replies, "Sorry, we don't serve strings here."

The second string thinks if he asks nice, he will get a drink, so he goes up to the bartender and says, "Please, Sir, if it is not too much trouble may I have a drink?"

The bartender replies, "Can't you hear? We don't serve strings!"

The third string goes into the bathroom and pulls himself into a loop and messes up his hair. He goes up to the bartender.

The bartender says, "Are you a string?"

"Sorry, Sir, I am a frayed knot."

Good luck with your doctor's appointment! Also, I hope when we meet up at the cabin next month that I get to eat some of your freshly caught fish! I would love that!
