Now, if my surgery was being done like this?

I might be a lot keener to have it done! A clue to what I mean by that?

Thanks go to ‘Legion’ for finding that picture, and posting it somewhere I would see it, has to be said. I know his real name, but for here, that will do.

Yes, there might be one or two here that know, but I suspect dont, that in terms of healthy joints, my body would fail most tests! My wrists, and fingers are riddled with arthritis (not too severely, thankfully), and my knees are a total surgical mess, with little, or no cartilage in either knee, if we are being truthful. No great details, beyond an accident as a child, but the pain is getting worse, as I get older, and I am now. So yes, a new robot body would be handy in more senses than one.

In truth, I’m already suspecting that next year, I’ll have to get at least one, if not both knee joints replaced, but I’ve been putting it off as long as possible. Yes, the pain, and general discomfort around the op doesnt thrill me, along with the time I would need off, having just got a job, but anyway, it will have to be done I suspect, especially the right knee, but as things stand, it wont be before October, as I have a work probation, and 2 holidays planned before then, and nothing is getting in the way of those!

But yes, fine, if it was all going to be done like in that picture, I might be a whole lot keener on the idea, to put it mildly! I know, I know, if only…Yes, I’d get all my joints sorted out if that was the option! 😀 If anyone can arrange that, as a Christmas present…?

Oh, yes, its Christmas! Actually got a week off this year, the longest break I’ve had while working, in a very long time! Finished last night, and dont go back until next Thursday. Then 2 days in, then 4 more off for New Year, wow! One of those is my day off for the week, but even so…

So yes, I got driven home for Christmas last night, even if it was only a bus driver, who couldnt get to Huddersfield quickly enough for me to get my perfect connection home, but I survived. Yes, thats a clue to tonights video, one of those Christmas songs that gets less attention than some. And being a Chris Rea fan…

A gentleman in my life

No, not in real life before anyone gets excited or shocked, just someone I regard as a very special friend at the MC Garden.

Unlike many of my previous personality postings here, I know very little about the man known as Legion at the Garden, so dont expect the sort of eulogy that James, Jo or Kate got from me, I dont know enough about him for that. So lets go with what I do know…

In real life, I know he lives somewhere in the Atlanta area, and according to his profile, he’s in his late twenties. I have to assume these are true, but thats about it.

What I do know about him is that he is an absolute gentleman, having been very kind to me, someone he equally barely knows on more than one occasion. And no, I’m not going to tell you what he’s done, other than to say I was exceedingly touched when he did. What he also does very well, and is far too modest about it, is write super short little stories, for those who offer him morsels of words at the Garden. These are layered towards personal tastes, so no one will be surprised to know that “several” of mine have either included robots, or a certain famous lady born in the state of Kansas, and of course, flappers in general.

What I do know is that he doesnt just flit out a few words, he looks into the subject matter. The last piece for me, based around Cherryvale, absolutely proved that. The thing is, he either doesnt realise how good a writer he is, or doesnt want to admit how good he is, I have no idea which. I (as have others) have tried to get him to post something, but no joy… I also know that if I was ever to get interested in a man again, someone like him(or the image he creates at least) would make a wonderful partner. But no, he’s half my age, and I’m asexual nowadays, so…

But I just felt it was about time to really show my appreciation to the man known as Legion in words, and this is it.

The song, well, he treats me as a lady at least, even if some who know me might laugh at that image, but thats why I’ve chosen this song, from a little while back (err, 40 years ago)
