Good morning, George,

As you might have been able to tell, we have been out of town for a bit,
visiting New York and Connecticut, occasioned by my 40th high school
reunion of Hauppauge (Long Island's) class of '61. What a scary thought
to think that that many years had flown by!

I was concerned to read, when I returned, that you had undergone surgery
for your arm. I know pretty well what it must feel like from what I
experienced in December of '98 when an orthopedic surgeon
"roto-rootered" my knee. Same deal, different location.

If you are as fortunate as I was, the pain will abate very quickly. In
fact, I was able to drive to choir practice 5 days later....and I drive
a clutch.

Those of us who are fortunate enough to have loving spouses (spice?),
had/have the road to recover a good deal simpler than those who live
alone. I am firmly convinced that the nurturing care of loved ones aids
materially in the healing process.

I will keep you and Miz Anne, and of course, Sleepy Dawg, in my prayers
for a speedy recovery.
