    good spirits and ready for surgery tomorrow

    Buddy isn't this the guy who rides the Rex and wears black leathers? I think he rode to Marble Falls with us recently.
    Either way,
    Let him know we are thinkin' about him...get well soon!

    Both leg surgeries are done and he has gone home to irritate
    his wife. The recovery will be the hardest part as Chris is an
    active guy that I have a hard time seeing sitting idle

    No lawn they live in a condo, but my grass could use some attention if
    you just feel the urge
