    We always have to be careful who we play with.....At least with these guys, you know Fido isn’t hearing or learning too much.....(smiley face)

    But he gets an “A” for effort.....and that’s what counts. We as scolis, learn as we go.....we learn and teach so that others don’t make the same mistakes.

    LOL

    I actually did wear a quack ordered brace in the woods.....(it was skiing, and it was Art Copes)

    Of course that was a long time ago, before internet, and the surgeons wanted to operate and wasn’t ready at that time.....the surgeons wouldn’t brace me, and I wanted it mainly for pain and skiing protection.

    Now that we have that done with, we can continue with more micro swine, ......and wine, a great combination.

    Loads for me. It's a baby panda asking to go on the slide and the crying meme says yes of course and the baby panda falls off the slide.

    LOL!

    You know I often think about the many adults here who escaped the bracing wars as kids. I started that thread about it and the opinions were all over the board. You weighed in I think. Of course many/most of those people never actually had to wear a 23 h/d hard brace, including at school so there's that.

    Even though you were surgical as a kid, they still did not brace you then? Wow. What a concept! Not bracing surgical kids! Ah but it's too utopian to even think about. We have to live in the real world.
