      It’s Lawn Bowls – dont you have that over there? Normally the oldies play it dressed in all white!

      Gee it makes me so thankful to know I am able to walk unaided so soon after when i see and hear so many people who are still having difficulty years down the track. i wish everyone could have such a good recovery, makes me feel a bit guilty although i know no one would begrudge me.

      Dear Vmac:

      I am a Duck fan. What other choice do we have? The jailblazers? I even attended the U of O for a short time. The kick-off is in 10 minutes so I gotta go.

      Great game. I got to see part of it. Can’t stand any basketball, especially the Blazers. Was at Kells last night. A bunch of Rugby players were there. Think we’ll go to a Rugby Match in PDX some Saturday. We played shinty in the afternoon. Hard on an old wreck like me, but fun.
