Shots never worked for me.  I had cartilage removed the old fashioned way in 1971, and it was never good after that.  I waited as long as I could for docs to get better at replacement.  Almost waited too long; my doc retired a year later after he did my wife's right knee.
Now my wife goes in for carpel tunnel in 2 weeks.  Golf over for her the rest of the year.

The procedures they do now are incredible compared to 20 years ago.
Good luck to the bride.

It's why it's called a "practice" and we are called "patients", because we have to be patient while they practice.    🤣

And depending on the method of refinement even with topical one can check positive for THC on a drug test and for a truck driver that is a no no--- Since my recent injury I am more than likely going to give up driving a truck. I told the VA to shove it years ago. They want to dictate your life too much they wanted me to quit dipping and chewing.

That would be a bad trade off, to lose the benefits over CBD, although most commercial brands are supposed to be free of THC, hence non drugs, but I can see them still have a problem with it.

Well yesterday was a jam up good make that great day for me. Fellow Spy John Smalls showed up and we managed to get 16 holes in after his family obligations and me taking care of my little dog. this was the first time I had tried to play my own ball after my accident. I had been playing in the Dogfight some not hitting all of the shots. I did an all out effort and lasted 13 holes hitting at it sorta 90%. So I feel positive. John played good and can flat move the ball. We did not keep score and hit practice shots. I know he had one birdie and 2 other near misses on his original ball. Me I think I did have 3 pars which is moving up for me. I quit after 13 because I got tired but he soldiered on for 3 more. We had to cut it short because they wanted the cart in by 5.

Today he is coming up and we are going to switch some adaptors and he wants to see the shop. I will get him to take some pics and post for you guys of the shop and mess.

We are starting late because my little dog has to go to the Vet every day for treatment since he was almost bitten in two by a Pit Bull last Thursday that was not supposed to be in here to begin with. That is all I am going to say because I have legal litigation pending against the owner of the dog

I am glad that you guys were able to play some good golf yesterday.
Keep working on that recover, soon you will be playing 18 with no issues.

It pains me to hear that the doggo was hurt, that really sucks.

Not many applicants for the Ben Hogan long irons, hybrids and woods this time around, at least compared to the TSi drivers.

I know that the hand availability and club selection are a turn off, but Hogan still awesome clubs, every now and then I still take out the old GCDs out for a round or two.

I have no idea what year this are.

CBD use banned for Active Duty too, largely due to risk that the industry isn't regulated enough...a product could still have THC even if it's not supposed to, which could lead to a failed whiz quiz.

My company had also advised against using CBD due to potential drug test failures. THC in the big brands probably isn’t an issue, but people seeking cheaper supply may result in getting lower quality product. It avoids the whole issue if companies/military/etc ban it across the board due to potential issues.

I tried it for a week before I couldn’t stand it any more.  3-4days is my max.  Can’t do any more than that.  I tried a 30 day one time when I was moving and on leave.  Just not my deal.

To be fair, I have not shaved in about 6 years, I do trim it often, as the wife has a "no werewolf" policy, but I have not seen my chin in years.
