So........... so a bloody prime rib, a baked 'tater with real butter, some high quality whisky followed by a good cigar. All bought with money that used to go to the gym membership.

When it's your time, it's your time. Somebody slap me silly if I show up in the cockpit with compression socks.

I've heard that you can get compression socks through our (FDX) uniform vendor.

Mark,
I could've sworn that you wore nylons when we flew together light years ago? My retirement memory is still fading? Any chance I can come back as a "two A off, one B on" type?

Does anyone remember that company that sends pilots 12 free pair every year? You just need your doctor to sign a a form that you send the company. I did this about 6 years ago but forgot the name of the company. Thanks

At 40 also from knee injury. It should be noted that leg swelling could be from a number of things and is best checked by a Dr. Organ failure, heart failure, Peripheral Artery disease and reaction to some long term BP meds use are among the few.
