The surgery for the torn meniscus is now two weeks in the past, and all went well.  A bit of physical therapy and I should be back to whatever normal was.  Simple surgery is what they do to other people, but mine did go very well.  The doctor said my response to the surgery was above the curve, but I should think about walking less than 5oo miles at a time, and did I ever consider swimming?

I have titled the photo, The Refugees; it was taken on the Camino Portugues while trekking to Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

Monica and I wish you a blessed Christmas, and Peace & Love throughout the New Year.
