Whoa, yee olde fahrt, you sound like me. I lay there saying, "I don't have to get up, I don't wanna to get up, I ain't gonna get up.. it hurts too much... But I have a huge Maine Coon cat and he gets me up. He has a cold nose and keeps butting my shoulder. Then of course old men need to pee a lot, so that precludes staying in bed. Coffee, where's my coffee? So, I get up, do my morning abolutions and drink coffee, visit Stunt Hanger, read all the BS, etc, and that is how I start each day. Could be worse, I keep reading about people no longer with us.
Take a 30 minute walk each day, not fast, just walk, it keeps the joints lubed and you will sleep better and getting up isn't so bad.
Thanks Chief, one knee is so bad that I really can barely walk much at times. They wouldn't fix it when I popped all the ligaments because the bones were too bad from 44 years of no cartilage and bone on bone. The end of the bones are ruined..
I really really want to fly but I cannot physically use a stooge right now, so...
But thanks for the encouragement!!!!
