Well, given two very bad knees...and my age...I don't kneel anymore.  I
wasn't even able to kneel when I was inducted into the Laurel!  I STR that I
did when I got my Pelican, but that was *(&*mumbley^%$* years ago!
Fortunately, no one seems to mind my problem...and if they do, then I guess
I won't be able to go forward when called!  Not only can I not get up, but
it is very painful to kneel and getting up is even more fun!  So no, I don't
and can't kneel!
