That is great news, Fike! Woohoo! Keep up the good work and thanks for letting me know. And no worries, the round of mail I just sent out is my first since about March.

In visual news, squirrels carved my jack-o-lantern for me this year. Nature is lit! ;-)

Sock it to them!

I wish you a brief and peaceful recovery.

Howdy, All.

Hello, IUOMAns!

Still way behind on replying and not catching up so's you'd notice.

Had chemo yesterday and, as usual, the steroids they infuse to keep me from being nauseous seem to result in an increase of energy at least for the next day. So I'd better use summa it to pare down the backlog.
