I never did BMX racing or anything close to that, but I've walked at least 3 miles, 6 nights a week for 20 years or more. Around 10 years ago, my knees started hurting really bad. It felt like I had glass in my knees with almost every step. The pain was excruciating.

I started doing exercises for my legs, to strengthen the muscles around my knees. Squats, lunges, stair stepping. First with just body weight, then added dumbbells. Eventually the pain went away.

Don't know if your knees are too far gone for something like this to work for you but thought I'd share my story. It's a fairly common thing for people to get knee replacements these days. Hopefully you're not at that point. So you haven't been to a doctor about it? Gotten X-rays? Maybe it's time. Good luck.

Oh, you probably have some great info there. I do know I have limited improvement b/c I have had ortho twice and limited cartilage left. However, you are probably right some specific excersizing may help. I do walk a lot at work but it does not seem to help therefore I anticipate the worst.

YOUNGER Brother turned 51 Monday. LAst night we all went to dinner.

Dad called just as wife/I were getting in the car. "Wait, I'll stop by. I can't find my wallet, and don't like driving without my license. You can drive us all to the restaurant"

He got there, said his wife called and found his wallet, in his pants. He thought that's where it was, but

A lot. Starting to believe you have something against pants. And I'm not sure what they ever did to you.

Same, but skateboarding. Multiple knee surgeries over the years. I'm told I'll have some nice shiny titanium knees one day, I hope not. My knees are more accurate than the weather man these days. I can usually let you know it's going to rain a day or two in advance.

Get an X-ray. Make an informed decision. I know a lot of people with new knees but none who regret it.

How weird is it that I'm younger than both of you and used to shave with a straight razor? Key words "used to." It only took one cut, no more. That thing now stays in a box of keep sakes, for the grandkids and great grandkids so they can hear stories about how one day their grandfather almost died shaving.

My first shave was with my old man's Gillette Trac II.

The worst part for me was when trying to look good for a date, I would try for a nice sharp line at the bottom of my 'burns. But I way too often I got a bloody scab-line instead.
