Ow. The knee.

My knees have never been the best. I acquired two football knees without playing the sport---the first time to fail me was when I was about 12, stepping over a barbed wire fence, thank goodness in jeans, but a mile from camp. Leg just quit, with a nasty cracking...

Beware the vengeance of cats, for they know where you sleep…
