Just drifting along......

I know I have been rather slack in my blogging as well as my personal life. Sorry 'bout that. Not much worth writing about lately. A few weeks back, I went down to South Carolina to attend a retirement party for a friend Eric Williams, who pulled the pin and retired from the National Park Service after 32 years service. He was the Chief Ranger/Historian at 96 Historic Site and he will be missed.

I am set up to go under the knife once again this coming Friday for more repair to my knee. This will make two surgeries for each knee. I swear that the doc has seen me naked more than my good wife lately. I am working up a punch card with the hopes that I can at least get one surgery free in the future, much like the coffee club at the local stop and rob.

I have been doing some small knotwork, I have a few sailor's needle cases made up and I hope finished before the end of the week.

So that's my story, and I am sticking to it.

Messmate! Good to see you back on the blog, as well as Facebook. So what's the procedure on the knee this time? Our beloved Bosun Niblets was supposed to have a complete knee replacement today. I assume that still took place, even with the crappy weather. I'll call Ms. Margaret later this evening and get a report. Hope all goes well for you on Friday!

Hey messmate!

Just gotta clean up a tear in the meniscus. They are talking about replacing my right knee sometime, but I am not in any rush to have that done.

Give the good Bosun and his lady my best!
