Shoulder replacement...

My right shoulder has "moderately severe" arthritis. Doc says as long as I can keep near full range of motion and control pain with over the counter drugs she doesn't recommend any surgical options.

I crash landed on that shoulder about 30 years ago... motorcycle accident. Now, I can't reach far enough back to thread my belt or reach a "behind the hip" handgun.

For mowing I've got a 54" cut Cub Cadet riding mower... I mow about 2 acres of lawn and field.
