BD, you sound in great spirits, may the rest of your recovery go well! With the weather we have been having in the Midwest, you may be golfing in November. Take good care of yourself. The cake is on the way.
Bill, I remember you being up and doing things Ron could only dream of. I guess we all have an anniversary coming up later in the month. So happy things have been good for you!
Startech, I think BD gave you a good idea about the massage. I won't say anything more except good luck with your surgery, and looking forward to seeing you on the other side.
