Thanks!! It's unofficial... I haven't gotten the ok from anyone to do it but I just couldn't resist. My knee is killing me now but it was just fantastic for the spirit! I feel so much better now.

Congrats! That's what I like to hear. What are you, one month out from surgery?

Glad Denny took care of you.

Yes, just over a month. I had to take some painkillers last night and it was pretty swollen, so probably not the smartest idea I've had lately but hey -- I feel so good that it makes up for it I absolutely cannot wait to be back in the saddle for good!!

I'm so happy for you! I know exactly how you're feeling right now, isn't it wonderful? I love how Denny was so careful with you. He's looking so handsome and, man, he has so much energy. Those are huge bucks!!

I know how you feel and congrats! Must've felt great to get on him again...a couple years ago I broke my ankle and against everyone's orders I rode with my cast...gave it a couple weeks initially, but then caved to the urge to ride. Denny looks wonderful though, glad to see he's kept his spunk! LOL His bucks look like they could challenge a rodeo bronc...at least he doesn't do that under saddle! Glad he took care of you...but heal up fully, THEN start really riding again - I'd hate to see you re-injure it before it's fully healed.

Teehee oh the image of riding in a cast... haha!!

Re: the bolded part - yes, for sure. Gosh, the last thing I'd ever want to do is show up at my surgeon's office again saying "well... sorry I screwed up your work... "
