Hip Hip Hooray! 😃

@nzmetal was asking on a different thread whether I’d be sharing new tones from my new toy pedal… Well, probably, but not in the near future :thinking:

The pain-relief genie no longer appears when I rub my sore hip, so I’m trading new lamps for old and having a replacement next Friday. Yay! :smiley:
I know many people in the UK complain about the NHS, but it’s always the disasters/lack of care we hear about. Good news rarely makes headlines. Two cataract surgeries and one hip replacement (for free), within the year, is decent treatment in my book :smiley:
On the guitar front I’m hoping a few grains of narcotic analgaesia might inspire my muse for the next open mic. Otherwise, I’ll just have to scrape the barrel for something nobody knows…

All ‘good wishes’ and ‘get well soons’ gratefully acknowledged in advance, so click the ‘like’ button if you must, but no need to comment :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
Have a nice weekend y’all

Now…I just hope this won’t be inappropriate but I hope it’s not because you’ve been over dancing Celentano’s tunes in your youth! :see_no_evil: :wink::sunglasses:
Take care of yourself Brian … and all the best wishes :blush:

What must I read here? “Can Old Dogs get new hips?” Time takes its toll, our bones and joints start to crunch, that’s for sure and as long body parts can be replaced…hmpf…no, all jokes aside, you have a lot to take this year and I wish you all the best for your surgery and recovery! :hibiscus:
I’m sure you will use the time to surprise us with something new you hatched during rehabilitation.
@roger_holland and I and all the others around here will keep your seat warm and keep our fingers crossed that everything goes fine!
Don’t watch too many weird music videos of obscure bands while recovering :wink:

Good luck with it all Brian. The key thing is the post op physio. Stick at it, force yourself to do it and you’ll give yourself the best chance of a quick recovery and a successful outcome. :+1:

Hi Brian, sorry, but I couldn’t only press the like-button :wink: .
I wish you all the best for your surgery, and yes, take the rehab-time serious. So that your juvenile mind (in a positive sense :smiley: ) can continue to live in an almost juvenile body.
Fingers crossed that all goes well and we have you back in no time :crossed_fingers:.

Ta all for the good wishes and comments nonetheless :rofl:

@roger_holland my heart leapt when I saw that you had written me a song :smiley:
It sank somewhat after clicking on the link…
I s’pose I could ask them for a couple of implants and a tummy-tuck while I’m still under, eh? :thinking:

@sairfingers I’m old, Gordon, but not old enough to 'member dem bones! :rofl:
My earliest exposure to ‘hip’ music would have been in the days of Disco.
Apologies to our lovely ladies in the community for unacceptable lyrics. Take it as a sign of how far we have come?
I ain’t gonna bump with no one no more… :roll_eyes:

Well, even the best plans go awry…
Too many emergency orthopaedic cases yesterday taking up theatre space, so I’m afraid I was ‘cancelled’ :laughing: Not so Yay! :frowning_with_open_mouth:
At least I don’t have to go to the back of the queue and am now in the equivalent of Ryanair’s Speedy boarding or Priority queue :rofl:
I’m still going to see if I can remain in patient-mode at home, be waited on and pampered by my beloved. (I may be requiring more than hip surgery though!)
