"You 'BECOME' the horse said to the rabbit. 'It doesn't happen all at once. It takes a very long time. Generally by the time you are REAL most of your hair has been loved off and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But those things don't matter, because you are real, you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.' " >>> The Velvateen Rabbit

Yes, I talked him down!
Hubby had this all set up Sunday to go up and cut that lower limb off. Yes he did and he is scheduled to have his right knee replaced in about 2 weeks. I managed to talk him out of it. No. 1 it kills his knees to climb ladders. No. 2 it just plain wasn't safe, and No. 3 there was no good reason to take the limb down.! At least not to my way of thinking. But he has been in this mode for a couple weeks. Sort of getting his ducks all in a row. Getting the lawn mowers all cleaned, the vehicles all checked out with oil changes and new batteries in 2 of them. I think he goes around looking for anything that might need repaired before winter. Poor guy, I don't really blame him, cause he has been thru this with his other knee about 18 months ago so he knows what he is facing. He has some limitations with the knee replacement that was done. Like he can't kneel down on a hard surface on it. So if he ends up with the same with this one it makes it hard to do alot of the things he likes to do.
Oh, and he would banish me from the kingdom if he knew I told this on him so shhhhhhhhhhh!
