we'll see. I really would like for him to see the grand canyon as he has never seen it.
Area 51 is cool, too!

So...by Monday I will be fitted with a back brace I will probably have to wear it 3-4 weeks. Sandee is getting OJT on setting up and tearing down stuff since I am restricted from lifting anything heavier than a gallon of milk.

So...no surgery.

Timing is everything so we will be here through Labor Day and then a few weeks in Monticello, IN. That will give time for the back brace to help me heal correctly and also for return visits to monitor the progress.

Sue...we will certainly be able to establish an unbreakable record for the most mini-Cs by the same mutants. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Good luck with that back brace, Don! They gave me one when I got a T-12 compression fracture. If yours is like mine it will make you bend backward and be impossible to wear in any position except standing.

My back was fractured when I went to sit down and the stool rolled out from under me in the garage. Caused a giant electric like shock up my spine and then a really great light show in the back of my eyes. Fun stuff, huh?

Barb with friends like mine "Enjoy" would not be a proper description. Lol

Yea, Les answer up!

My wife and I had some drinks one night and shut down the lights and decided to have a "skinny dip". Our daughter, who is usually hold up in her room all night, came out and saw our swim suits laying by the entrance to the pool.

She said "Are you guys swimming nude"?

I said. "Yup! Read the sign"!

She said "You've so ruined the pool for me"! and went back in the house.

I don't know that local ordinances would allow a mass exodus to our place for such an event. Pool isn't that big and I don't have near enough alcohol to to wash away that picture.
