    I don't know how this thread popped up a year later, but I think it merits revisiting.

    Wow it was yesterday I put this up here LOL I had to read it again, its a long read but worth the effort.
    I got a new knee last Oct, said the hell with what it cost I was un happy couldn't walk much couldn't do a lot of things I liked to do. Now almost 3 months into recovery I'm walking pretty good not to much pain, getting out more, riding my Motor cycle again. Got a drone and flying that having fun with it. Looking for someone to share the fun with a little.

    That's great to hear Bert, I'm glad your new knee is doing well.
    I enjoyed re-reading your post.

    I'm glad you did Lowell. There is so much practical wisdom here. I couldn't find one thing that didn't ring true. There were many that resonated with me, but I especially liked this one, coming off the Holidays:

    "10. Respect the younger generation and their opinions. They may not have the same ideals as you but they are the future and will take the world in their direction. Give advice, not criticism, and try to remind them that yesterday’s wisdom still applies today."
    "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

    #10. really stuck out for me. With my kids getting into middle age & grandkids getting into their teens, I'm seeing the truth of this on a daily basis. I'm learning more from them than they are from me at this point.
