    It was nice to see it on the computer.I was glad to hear that you had gotten your surgery. I thought you looked a bit rough that day at the radiothon. That had to of been fun sitting there for 15 hours. At least you got through it. I hate to see someone new for the ATTH. There has been quite a few that have gone away. Have a good day
