My wife Marlene is the proud owner today of a brand new knee joint. The doctor told me the old joint, was bone-on-bone, and that her new knee will be a tremendous improvement for her. We are replacing ourselves part by part. I now have a new lens in each eye, and my wife has a new knee. What’s next? Don’t ask.

We are Blessed to live in a place and a era, and to have the means, to benefit from modern medicine. Without health, we have nothing. God Bless good doctors.

Ten minutes after the doctor gave me the good news about Marlene’s successful knee surgery, I was interviewed on the KFQD 750 Dan Fagan Radio Show (from the hospital lobby – that’s life in the fast lane) about my proposal for suspension of the state gasoline tax. Dan knew I was calling from the hospital lobby, and my wife’s knee replacement. Then he asked how old she was, and I was dumb enough to answer (That goof may have cost me a vote in my own household!!).
