    Ok... I'll play along since no one else has yet.

    If I had a choice for "enhancement" what would it be? EYES! Mine are shot and will continue to get worse as time goes along. Been wearing glasses since I was 10 and because I don't like any object in my eyes, which includes my finger ... or contact lenses, it would have to be the eyes. Even if it only made them to be standard perfect 20/20 vision would make me a pretty happy guy.

    OK, maybe I qualify here. I just had my second knee replacement.
    Titanium & Stainless (and a bit-o-plastic)
    Had my left knee replaced 3 years ago, and my right knee 1 month ago.
    A little slow right now, but if the right knee turns out like the left, I'll be as good as new in a short while.

    I understand the back plight. I've already got a bionic back and don't like it. Got 2 titanium rods in to keep it straight (T2-L4). I'll trade it in for a "better bionic back".

    I was a "classic Crusty" at thirty also. It was near 50 that I fell apart.

    We stay at the Econolodge (former Days Inn) on Dussel Drive every August for the Nascar race in Michigan. I won't be there this year as my wife's due date is too near the race date.

    There's always some fair going on when we are there, we can see the fireworks from the hotel. We're right near a Chevy dealership...Colussy is it? Man...you guys get some storms up there. the one year I thought we were going to be KILLED on 23 heading back to the hotel. Tecumseh got friggin' clobbered!!! Trees down and roofs blown off everywhere!!!

    Oh yeah...I love my trip to the Flatlands!!!
