Ibbski;

Glad to hear you're moving along, was wondering how you were doing after your marathon hospital stay after your surgery.  Hope you continue to get better.

Dr. Gross told me 8 weeks, I waited a little over 8 weeks, I could have played earlier.

When I played my first 18, I won low score, I took greenies off my buddies and I won the longest drive on #18, they have never lived down the fact that a guy who just a short time before was laying in an operating room.   ;D ;D

Listen to your body, work up to it

It's a sunny 62 degrees here in Pittsburgh, I got off work early, guess where I am going?

Hey, hey!  We in Pittsburgh resemble that remark!  Ben has not been arrested in over 2 years, so I would call that an accomplishment.
