Well I guess it’s a part of getting old but I do seem to be spending more time visiting with folks in the hospital and it’s about to get a lot more frequent. Not only do I have David to worry about but when we get back from up north my Dad’s going in for major heart surgery. On Tuesday the 13th they’ll put 2 cow valves in his heart in a 5 hour ordeal. He said his doctor, who looked like Howie Mandel but was funny, performs about 180-200 of these procedures a year with a very high success rate. I’m not so much worried about that part, it’s more the depression and pain he’ll suffer afterwards. He’s pretty damn tough though. He’ll be down for a while but I think he’ll be back out “hittin’m” (golfballs) next Spring. Well, we’re outta here heading to Chicago in a couple of hours, I better go pack and dye my hair! Tell somebody you love to come see us!
