My final (stationary) bike ride today with all my original body parts. Tomorrow a hospital will install an artificial knee.
For the last few months, I can only walk about 100 meters without using things such as hiking poles. Even bike riding on the street has become difficult because I can no longer pull the hills. I switched to stationary.
This has been coming on for years, so here I go! I hear the surgery is “not that bad” but the recovery is long.
In another thread, we were talking about drinking instant Nescafé.
I remember a good one from 2007. Me having a Nescafé at a Pemex truck stop just after sunrise somewhere ‘tween Mérida and Palenque. Sleepy relaxed bliss while drinking it. The seven hours quoted by Google for the trip is very optimistic.
