Man Vs. Cartoon

OK..... so working from home after knee surgery has some drawbacks..... daytime TV....

BUT if I had not had the TV on in the background I would not have seen the ad for a new upcoming program.

There is a program on the "tru TV" channel that starts on 13 June where they will pit Man versus Cartoon. Their plan is to recreate all of the gadgets and gizmos that Wylie Coyote used to try and catch the Road Runner

...almost a spin-off of the Mythbusters idea...

ACL Repair. Big Bend Ranch was shortened by a day because of the tearing of the ACL.

Re: Man Vs. Cartoon

Now that hurts. That is what almost happened to me last year and I'm just starting to return to normal. It really put a cramp on my hiking this last year. Hope you get back into regular action fast Greg.
