SIG, it has been a blessing to have some one to help you. Since I had my spinal accident in 2004, I  have had to have some one with me all the time.  It has been hard on them.  Mother is 83 and I am 85 now, no longer spring chickens. it hard when you can't do for yourself..

Wayne, thankful that you get some help from friends and family, headed to a car show manyana, getting up in years is not for sissies. So glad I have my health at 78 !

Sig, this old weather has sure been crazy here this year.  I sure would like to cast a line again after I had my accident, I gave all of gear to the fireman across from me. He brings over fish and hushpuppies to us.  He sure looks out for us. between him and my daughter who comes down and stays week at a time to help mother care for me, I am becoming a hand full for the wife. if the government had not put in my lift I would be stuck in my bed.

Harold, would love one of each, they sure sound good.  Years ago use to go out to a friends place, he was from Germany. I would go there for my German meals.  His staff were all from Germany.  It was like being back over there.  Unable to go any more unable to get out of  house accept to go to the doctor anymore.  next two Fridays two more doctors visit's then I have a couple of weeks before I go and start in again with more.

Yeah, I heard you guys were going to get baked down there, Sig. Good luck.

We got drenched for a few days and now it is drying out again. Sun is out now but got a weak system moving through today and then it gets nice again for a few days, upper 50's low 60's.
