Well, I wasn't in much better shape on Mardi Gras due to gout in my left
foot. This getting old stuff is for the birds (sorry Doug). I'm treadmilling
three times a week until Santa Fe. I don't want to show up at the Spring
Shoot with a motorized thingie that isn't attached to the bottom of my
camera. ;-)

Thanks Adam.  I have been tempted more than once to use the electric carts
at the grocery rather than endure the pain in my knees.

I'm not at the  morbid stage, but I have gained a good deal since my bum
knees started acting up.

Jeffery will attest that in two short years, my mobility has diminished
considerably.  He and I  usta  move all over the quarter during Mardi Gras,
and though I did pretty good, I could never have done it if my hotel hadn't
been right there.

Tomorrow I'm headed to Shreveport to look in to a little titanium gadget for
my knee that is much more costly than a Minilux.

I don't want to end up like those gals, but it could happen to (nearly) any
of us.
