I know you have had some surgery over the years also and know all about recovery times.
It has been more than 12 years since I had the left hip replacement, and sometimes I think it will never fully heal.

About 4 years since the left foot surgery, and 2 years since the right and some days they don't feel fully recovered either.

Some of it is the changes in barometric pressure as the weather changes, and I can feel every bit of stainless steel, Nitinol and Titanium inside me, often with some discomfort.

Then there is the periodic pain in my left femur where the stem is inserted to support the hip joint. The surgeon says I shouldn't be having any pain there. So I guess that since he says so, then that should make it go away.

Right.

Racer, this is a great example of why people should try to make the most of their 20s, 30s, and 40s; because it's at about 50 or so that the damned check engine light starts coming on regularly.

I didn't make it to Mark's house for pizza, but I got a taste of NZ just the same.
Our local grocery store has Koru apples imported from NZ, and they are mighty good!
They're a cross between a Fuji and Braeburn. I need to hollow a couple out, fill with butter & cinnamon sugar, grill until soft, then top with ice cream. Dessert doesn't get any better than that!

So painfully true Jim.

But even with my check engine light blinking frequently, I keep pressing on.

Run hard, or go home. If you canít run with the big dogs, then stay on the porch.

Ouch. To a certain extent me too. I'm like a weather monitoring station for Environment Canada, our federal weather forecaster. Well at my age I have a number of aches and pains. Parallax caught it for me too, when he says past 50 our check engine light comes on a lot and in my case it just isn't a case of a loose gas cap anymore.

Wait until you're past 70, by then the light has burned out, your petrol tank is empty and you're running on fumes.

It's not bacon, and it's not cheap ($6 for 12 oz.) but it is pretty darn tasty!

Just remember that it doesn't stop any quicker than a 2WD.
True. About 35 years ago when AWD/4WD vehicles were not so common, I was driving home from work during a snow storm, and a Jeep Wrangler...lifted body, over size aggressive tread tires, etc. flew by me through the heavily snowed in road. I thought this will be interesting as there was a moderate curve in the road coming up....fast.

Sure enough, his brake lights came on very late....the jeep continued to go straight...missing the curve , there was an 'explosion' of snow and from there...driver and jeep went ...to boldly go where no man has gone before....way off road.

Driver and jeep were ok. The driver was embarrassed and more importantly, had learned a practical lesson in physics.

I like Johnsonville products, particularly at weekend breakfasts.

That's what I said, it's not bacon. Just open the plastic package and fry up a strip.

All 4 wheel drive means is that you get further off the road before you get stuck.

I had a sort of opposite experience back in the UK about 40 years ago. I lived in a small village on the edge of the Pennines. On a snowy day I drove my old series 2 landrover to the next village on a country lane. I was in 4wd and doing about 25 mph when I noticed a little ford escort following my. I thought he was being a bit silly keeping up with me, until we hit a bend. I drifted round it and he went straight on into a field.
I was laughing as I reversed back round the bend, threw him a rope and pulled him out of the snow.
