Well sports fans, try as I might, I just don't think there is anyway around it;

AFFRAID WE HAVE TO CANCEL THE GREAT 2010 VALENTINES EXTRAVAGANZA

I figured it out on the calendar tonight and by the time I finish my IMRT, I will only have a little over 2 weeks before the weekend.

Now I am right there with the rest of you, hoping for an easy pass on this one. I just don't want to take the chance that I won't have the energy to do it up right.

I am sure that you will understand. I know a lot of you folks were looking forward to getting together as much as I.

I really think the gathering is a great idea and promise to start working on something as soon as I finish IMRT, lord willing and the creek don't rise.

I am just the messenger here, it's those bastiches cancer cells that are canceling our fun and frolic.

I know that most of you figured this was coming, I just thought I better make it official.

Sorry,

Sonny and Lynn: You two have so much on your respective plates right now, no one in their right mind would anyone expect you to host a Valentine Day outing.

Just a generic hint, but South Carolina, in the western part where I live, isn't a bad climate to come to in the winter months. We are halfway between NY and FL, be a good neutral place for anyone east of the Mississpi.

Sorry, perhaps when you guys are done and have your strength restored one day, you can plan another get together and we will all gather in Orlando in your honor.
