I played a joke on my grand-daughters with an ACME sign.
Camera: Canon compact Photo Location: Quebec, CANADA

I had to have both of my knees replaced with prostheses because of osteoarthritis. My grand-daughters were young and asked a lot of questions about my surgery. They were avid fans of the "Roadrunner and Wiley Coyote" show on T.V., where the coyote always orders zany gadgets from the "ACME" company. So I printed an ACME sign and glued it to my leg and took a close-up of my freshly operated left knee. They still laugh at this picture 5 years later ...

High tech. Despite his efforts, Wiley Coyote could never get the Roadrunner. Glad they could provide you with good technology.

Good take on a bad situation!
I'm finally getting used to the knee I had done; hope I don't have to do the other one!
Keep those grandkids; they're better than good knees!
Angky.
