Hip Joint

Good Morning, again,  Ted and Jody:

Frank is free today so he will be here to finish up clearing the area around where the shed will go.  I can’t recall if I said, but the shed will go up on the 6th and 7th.  I figure that is quick.  I’m picking Frank up as it is cheaper if I drive than if he does as he always seems to be out of fuel; besides, picking him up gives me an excuse to stop for breakfast at MickeyDee’s.

McDonald’s has started a set of 12 action heroes for Happy Mean enclosures—six are action figures and two are head gear for the very young, a Batman Mask and a Wonder Woman head piece.  Since the figures don’t actually do anything, why are they called “action figures.”  Why not just dolls or miniature statues?  Anyway, I have decided to start collecting McDonald’s Happy Meal “toys” again.  I can hardly wait for the next annual Hot Wheels/Barbie set to come out.

Nancy has scheduled an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon towards the goal of a hip replacement.  She had a shot 10 days ago, that was to take a week to kick in.  It hasn’t kicked in and she is tired of the pain.  Since she won’t see him until the 11th, I have no idea yet of when that will be.  However, I got to thinking we had better schedule a wedding ceremony to keep things legal around here. Since she has already had two knee replacements and now a hip, at some point she will be a completely different woman than the woman I married.  So, to keep things legal, we had best get married again.  But then, if she is a different woman would I be committing bigamy by marrying her and not divorcing her first.  I can’t image she would stand still for a divorce, so I am sort of between a rock an a hard place—forced to live in sin because Nancy would throw a “hissy-fit” if I divorced her so I could marry the woman she is changing into.  Perhaps the simplest thing is for me to get a bunch of parts replaced so she would be living in sin as well and would see my point of view.  But then maybe she would not like the replacement guy I would become—able to move and do things.

I’ll ask Frank when we have breakfast what he would do in my situation.

Warmest regards, Ed

    Perhaps you can just renew your vows, to include the replacement parts?
    Just a thought.
    Best wishes, Pete.
