Good morning everyone,

Both sons actually. Good that docputer keeps getting better.

We had our traditional lobster dinner last night to celebrate our anniversary. 27 years and still deeply in love.

Good suggestion Sid. Warm beer doesn't appeal to m e, but I'll take a cooler. I still think Doc needs that girl from Va. Beach to help his recovery. His family may not approve, but I imagine the little puppy would like the ride. As soon as the legal stuff concerning the accident is done, off I go.

re: new car - I traded the 14 year old truck for a 2015 Honda CR-V EX-L. We got a good deal. The truck was going to need an engine replacement at a $8600 price tag. I would likely only get $2,000 for it (on a good day) so we decided to pursue replacing it earlier rather than later.

Sir Joe, I'm going to call too,,,Choco, you're an old fart that's miserable.

You should take a weekend trip up to Furnace Creek and smoke some dope and drink a warm beer.

In California, you could also make a nice trip to Tecopa Hot Springs. Maybe that's your cup of tea!?!

All this smoochin' is better than a zillion phone calls keeping Doc from what he wants most, getting well. Now he has a real reason for getting well. Sissurf sounds interesting Doc. You an plan on goin' to Va. beach

Greetings Doc, Baylee, Mindy, PayPump, Mick, WRINC, Joelimo, Geezer, Wack, MadDogUSMC, Loree71, Full of Fun, Chasms, blkvette00, Psycho Sid, & Others:

Happy Friday! 40 degrees this morning. In early this morning as I have to depart in a few minutes for a day of busy times.

Doc - glad to see you back and back to yourself.... ;)

Yesterday was another busy one with issues to solve that went well into the evening. I worked to almost 10:00p last night stopping only a few mins to eat. Fun times!

The GSU Men's basketball won 88-74 last night; women dropped another one.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Greetings Doc, Baylee, Mindy, PayPump, Mick, WRINC, Joelimo, Geezer, Wack, MadDogUSMC, Loree71, Full of Fun, Chasms, blkvette00, Psycho Sid, & Others:

Happy Thursday! 32 degrees this morning. Walk complete.

Doc - continually praying for your speedy recovery. Glad to hear things with the cath went well.

It's been a busy few days and today is another one. Solving problems, addressing challenges, and trying to provide positive value against some "interesting" odds... (and I'm not a betting man, nor do I believe in luck.... lol)

The all day IT conference I attended yesterday was presented by Angelbeat who usually comes to Atlanta about once each year. They invite industry leaders to hear various vendor presentations about new/emerging technologies. It's supposed to be more about the technology and less about the "marketing and sales" and previously been a well-attended and very worthwhile event. Many of the presenters during yesterday's session "broke the rules" and focused on the latter. Thankfully, the conference finished early so I was able to address some of the items referenced in para. 2 above. :)

Will provide an update on our new car purchase soon when I slow down just a little. Tonight and tomorrow nights are open right now so perhaps I can add some information then.

Off to continue the day.

Have a great day all!

All those who are calling the old boy---quit. He is in no condition to repeat over and over and over whatever it is that you want to know. Give him and his family a chance to rest. Loree will keep you abreast of everything.

Message from Kym: (paraphrased because I am on my phone) Heart cath is done and he is back in his room. They found no blockage but put a patch in where the stent was because of a bulge. Still not sure what caused the heart attack. Doctor is going to upgrade his pacemaker. He has an infection so they have to clear that up first. She wants her Daddy home!! Kym thanks everyone for their prayers and asks that you keep it up.

*DS grin* and lol...*Bone grin* too!

And, you sent the email to my work address...As we speak, I'm not at work..

Doc will have to add you to the goofball club, now how do ya like Joe's apples?
