Knees.

There was a time when I could “Moseley” a mogul run top-to-bottom like I was sitting in a chair. When I turned 50, the wheels fell right the eff off. My surgeon said it was probably from years of skiing and packing weight during annual hunts. Both knees went south in the same year, requiring meniscus surgeries. Returning to the mountains after knee repair was a challenge and knowing that I can’t ski like the old days is tough to take.

It sucks getting old.

Dude, seriously?

That version seems like a good time. I might buy in to that. But no, that's not how it works. Although the complete lack of critical reasoning disease currently endemic might make you think it does.

^^^ Nah, Klaus Kinski is my all time favorite. Then maybe Gary Oldman, but just barely maybe.

Ooh, this is a fun old fart's discussion. So I'll play along!

Torn calf

Damn, that's funny. Giuliani IS Nosferatu! Although a not very smart version and one that holds pressers in the parking lot of landscaping stores next to porn shops.

He's a lickspittle dumbass Nosferatu.

Thanks for pointing out what should have been obvious to me.

My only experience with moguls was my first time on skis (Jr. High). I took the ski lesson and went down the easy bunny hill. My friend who was experienced was doing the mogul run next. My 13 year old self wanted to be cool so off we went. Let's just say it didn't go well, after falling 9 times we bushwhacked to another slope (my first bushwhacking experience as well).
