I have been away for a number of weeks dealing with several non-PCa issues in my life and have missed you all.
 
I would like to think I'd have the time to read back and learn all that's been going on, but I'll do well to just drop by more often than I have been.  So, if I've missed something important, and make a "stupid" post because I'm not-in-the-know, please forgive me.
 
I've missed you all, and I hope everyone has been doing well.

Good  to hear from you Sheldon. The guys had a meeting at Jeff's place in Baton Rouge this last weekend and to the best of my knowledge no one was arrested. But glad to see your back.

Michael ---- I was painfully aware that I wasn't present at GFMPH, but as I may have messed up the no arrest record perhaps it's better I wasn't.

Thanks for saying hello. Means much to me.

Goodlife --- I'll have to get my snowmobile tuned up, ready for a Canadian GFMPH adventure! Nothing like a ten hour ride in the wilderness at 30 below knowing if your machine goes down the good news is that freezing to death is said to be an easy way to go. Or, we could do it in the summer and serve whole rack of mosquito. Hmmmmm?

Hero --- Great to hear from you! Not much birding, although the raptors are returning. No hummers yet. But, they do like to wait until the last of the snow showers have passed.

David --- Thanks for the hello. I trust all is well with you. I look forward to catching up on how you're doing.

Tony --- Nice to be back. I remain well, thanks.

As fellow Canadian and all round nice guy Bronson would say, hugs to all ....

that was a good segway Sheldon ...
- at times, at the GFMPH- CAJUN 2011- I would have appreciated a backup when some of the hosers made fun of our accents, eh?
:-)
-when shopping at Walmart, I would ask a question to the staff - they would look at me as if I was from Mars - so I would repeat my question adding on...
"I am. From a foreign. Country. Can-a-da. Do you have any chutney?"
"W'as a chutney? You better talk to man'ger o'er there, hon."
:-)

-glad you are back - and hope things have been resolved and all is moving forward -
hugs,
