Kriminey Kristol, we're up to K in the A to Z Challenge.
You may kneel on bended knees at church or dramatically in front of your beloved intended as you pop the question, but knees never rate a conscious thought -- until they don't work the way they should.
My knees aren't giving me trouble, but it seems like I know more than my share of people with knee problems. The latest is Stu McNicol, the husband of dear friend Donna McNicol. Stu, a retired firefighter, had two knees replaced during the same operation on March 27. In a word: Ouch!
Stu's operation by all accounts was a big success and he's undergoing a couple of weeks of strenuous rehab.
I was surprised to learn that firefighters often have knee problems. Climbing ladders with the weight of all their equipment must take a toll.
I read a lot of mysteries and thriller/suspense novels. I can't think of one that I've read that hasn't used a knee as a weapon. Somewhere with that book, the hero or heroine is going to be attacked and BINGO the bad guy gets a knee to the groin and our hero escapes. Works every time.
Now, I have to wonder if the heroes will have to have knee replacement surgery.
Be sure to read about Donna and Stu's adventures as full-time RVers on her blog and her cute fiction for the A to Z Challenge on My Write Spot.
