It does seem as though 'Too Fat' has fizzled out doesn't Speedy. It was a friendly and fun place over the years and I'm sorry to see it go - but the two of us infrequently posting do not make a sustainable thread! You know where to find me in the real world if you need me.
Sorry to hear your hip and knee are troubling you so much Speedy. Well done for your walking though. I'm not even walking far at present. It's shocking how fast my muscle tone is dropping away. I'm reviewing treatment options this week as the choices I've made so far have clearly not been effective.
I suspect the boys are taking a little break. You know how life is sometimes.
