2014 was off to a rough start….

2014 began with a new knee for the Pirate.  After many years of abuse in football and multiple surgeries to attempt to repair the damage, it was finally time for out with the old knee and in with the new deluxe Titanium knee.  Total Knee Replacement was a major surgery and Pirate was sidelined for a good 8 weeks.  During that time, we relied on the important things to get us through… Booze, good drugs, food, more Booze…   By Mardi Gras though, we were able to rally and participate in some of the fun.   Not to the extent of previous years.. but we still did ourselves proud.

 

January pictures are sparse and seem to be of a single theme….
