Blessing to all. What great news. Tony and I had a wonderful phone call today. The plans are set and, Tony, even better news. Friday the 20th is my night to sing at Celebrate Recovery. We will have a great night and a fantastic weekend. Johnnie is excited and ready to start cooking. I will get in touch with Brian and Scott so they will able to spend some time with you also.
After talking with Tony the side effects from last Thursday's chemo kicked in pretty good. I should be better in a day or so. The timing of the visit will be perfect. I should be over the side effects and ready to show Tony and Ruthie some good old southern hospitality. I think we will plan a cookout. We can't wait. You are so right Richard, blessing to Sheryl.
Love and blessings to all and........War Eagle, baby.
