Way back when, we bought a 1990 Grand Am - she had to be named Little Blue - no other name would do. Blue had 7 miles on her when we got her, and we put 4 of those miles on test driving, so yeah, she was brand new. Blue had seen us to and ... Read more

Just a short note: I came through arthroscopic knee surgery (yesterday) just fine. The dr cut out the flap of my torn meniscus (larger than he first thought it would be), and scrapped out some arthritic stuff. I'm following his orders, and do... Read more

Sad news first - my knee is not responding to the shot, and I'll be seeing the ortho dr again on Monday. I'm afraid all that's left is surgery, and I'm not looking forward to the recovery time. I very well may not be able to participate in the... Read more
