The Great Escape...

...meets Forest Gump. As some of you may know from other social media sites I was discharged from hospital on Tuesday evening ~

I had intended to blog the French and Indian War game Jon and I played on the Wednesday previously, but I have seriously underestimated the shrinking of my horizons post surgery. My daily routine seems to revolve around walking, resting and eating, and that’s about it! I’ve got as far as uploading the pictures from the game, so perhaps next week, eh? In the meantime, if you are squeamish then look away now ~

Now, the question: who can link the pictures to the film titles explicit in the title and opening remark? No prizes sadly...


  1. Best of luck in your rehab! My wife had a knee replacement a couple of years ago, so I have a sense of what you're going through. We're thinking of you!

  2. Arrghhhh just threw up......really glad things are going well. Back to gaming soon 😀

  3. David, pleased you are recovering well. Looks grisly but worth it in the long run. Speak soon.

  4. You are looking very well old boy...

    That’s some scar... never mind ... a bit of filler and a fresh coat of paint,
    It will be as good as new...

    All the best. Aly

  5. Wishing you the best recovery David!


  6. So you've been staying at the Hilton? Glad it's gone well,g goo luck on rehab and we can see French Indian wars all in good time.
    Best Iain

  7. You look remarkably cheery having gone under the knife.

  8. That's a cracking looking scar, all the best on your recovery. Hopefully it will be a speedy one.

  9. The Great Escape eh, hope you remember what Sue does to escaping POW's :~)
    You certainly looked better than you have for a while last week despite the operation.

  10. Good to see you back on your feet and back blogging.

    All the best from Airhead towers.

  11. Many thanks for all your kind wishes. Much appreciated. Onward and upward!

  12. Best wishes !
    Come back soon !
    We like what you do !
