I have gotten a couple of emails wondering if I was OK since I have not posted much lately.

I want to thank those of you who noticed my absence and decided to check up on me.

I am doing Ok all in all, though for the past few weeks I have been battling a head and chest cold and now I have a major tooth abscess that has left me feeling yucky.

I am getting treatment for the abscess so hopefully the pain and swelling for that will go down soon, but until they do I doubt I will be posting much.

Once again thanks for caring. I do appreciate it.

       Morning Jim!

           A tooth problem seems to be one of the worst types of pain...at least it is for me! shakehead

       You have been missed, and hopefully you will be feeling much better very soon, and back in the saddle.

          Take it easy, and we will see you soon!

Hi Jim. I haven't been posting a lot lately, but have been reading some and have missed you here. I'm sorry you're having so much pain. Ugh. I hate tooth pain...it's all-consuming. I hope that you get rest and some relief soon.

Hey Jim, I was wondering what happened to you. So sorry to hear that you are now having to deal with tooth pain, it just doesn't seem fair. Us CPer's should be exempt from extra pain!

I wanted to thank you for all your support when I was getting ready to have my surgery done. You helped me alot. I sure hope you get back to feeling yourself soon...take care.
