    I can only echo what the others have said, glad you were able to have the surgery, and it went well! Prayers from the Prairie for a full and speedy recovery!

    Sending positive magic hippie crystal vibes for a full a quick recovery, Jeff.
    I'll even throw in a little pewter wizard hoodoo for a little extra oumff ( how the heck do you spell that anyway? )
    Seriously, do what your doctor says and get better quick.

    Good to see you getting through things Jeff.
    When things get tough for me - I tell myself - in a couple of months I will look back at this and laugh.
    Your looking great my friend.

    That begs the question Jeff - Did your doctor and the hospital provide your treatment at "cut throat" prices?:):rolleyes:

    The old apple tree is loaded this year, which makes the deer very happy.

    They aren't bothering me yet, but I really must go out and refresh the deer stink on the shrubs.

    It seems to work.
    Of course I run out and bite them as often as possible, too.

    I was out of town to attend a memorial service for a departed relative this past weekend. I drove, so taking pocket knives with me was no problem. I took four along - Case Peanut, two types of Case Stockman (6318 Medium and 6347 regular), and an Alox Vic Cadet.

    Day 1 - hotel room, sister had some sparkling water and a lemon, but no way to cut the lemon. Case Stockman to the rescue. Perfectly cut lemon.

    Day 2 - the memorial service. Afterwards, we did a "scatter the ashes at sea" ceremony. The ashes were enclosed in a plastic bag inside the box. Nobody had a cutting tool but me. The sharp Vic Cadet I had in the pocket of my dress slacks did the honors, cutting the bag, with the appropriate dignity for the task.

    So - two little simple situations where having a clean, sharp pocket knife turned problems into non-problems. Felt kind of good.
