Hey - Swim - nothing like a little thread hijackin' either!

All good news there, I see (although I question why you put daughter getting married as number 4 - ha, ha)

Let's see -
1. We passed our 2-year PSA post-op anniversary w/flying colors. (Went from a 50% chance of return to about 5% now.) Cool.
2. No 8 inches of snow - no snow at all.
3. Bought a boat and having no luck at fishing so our neighbors take pity on us and bring us fish - already cleaned.

I heard about a Newsroom incident where a weather man predicted 8" of snow one night, the next day when after there was no snow the lady news anchor asked the weather guy "What happened to the 8 inches you promised me last night?"

I understand the crew had to take a break they were laughing so hard. It made the internet all over...may have been from your area.

Love you GreenAcres, great to see you again.

Oh, ha, ha - Tony. Let's see - you're suggesting that only someone from Texas would say that? Very funny. By the way, I linked your Caring Bridge blog from one of my own sites and know folks are checking it out. I remember when you came on and were uncomfortable writing or saying anything - what a difference now, huh?

Creed! My toasting friend - yes, if we ever choose to cross an ocean again, it'll be to head back to our favorite place! Always a treat to hear your continued good news as well!

We're more lurkers, now, with a quick fly-by in the mornings, usually. When we first came on board, this particular forum was only 7 pages long. Hard to imagine and, yes, it does seem like one crazy journey.
Husband: Age 67
