    Why do you think there are so few reports of vampires these days? They've found a new cover.

    Glad to hear things worked out for the best. Hope they sort out what the problem really was.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    Yo! Spinner! You sure know how to bring every one up on their feet!

    (Just got my computer back on line after reformatting, so your post was a jolt.)

    Keep us up dated, we're all rooting for you.

    1) Getting ready for the ultrasound.

    2) Then the stress test.

    3) and last, the Nuclear test. (Twice they put some radioactive liquid into the catheter attached to my blood vein and checked the heart with that.)

    I'm at home. After all the tests, the results are in.

    I have a healthy, strong heart of a 30 year old. I think the road trip and visiting my friends in Nevada and California will do wonders. I really look forward to making new friends with those of you who wanted to meet up with me. . It will be great to go sailing in SF bay and visit Yosemite with new friends.

    Thank you all for your caring and love. It means a lot.

    Maybe it's a good time to get rid of the sticky.

    If there is any way to arrange a commuter flight, I can certainly meet you on this end. A day trip in Cali like that is cool. Maybe you can get a day or half day away like that?

    If only we had a train that could get from LA to the Bay Area quickly, eh?

    Peace,

    That's great news.

    By the way, where do you keep it?
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    You, Mr. Glen Longino, are what is technically known and hereby recognised as a Diamond Geezer. In case you are wondering, that is a Good Thing. If you see fit, you are authorised to use the letters DG after your name in official correspondence. You are also one of the few people whose posts make me laugh out loud.

    Keep trucking, Spinner. And thank you to those of you who have been so kind as to welcome my occasional intrusions. I look in from time to time and, occasionally, can't resist......

    Happy days, all, from down the tranquil, curlew-haunted, seal-beloved, oyster-rich, sea bass swimming, marsh harrier o'er flown, tewk-loud, muddy, tidal creek that is my personal paradise.

    Don't get rid of the sticky until everyone knows you're okay, though.

    I missed the word; When are you traveling south? I'd love to see you if in Seattle, I might even be able to offer a dinghy sail. Yosemite is awesome after labor day, the crowds clear out, I liked staying at "climbing camp" in the valley, five tents to a campsite instead of one, vehicle at a parking lot a short walk away, but a little noisier, kids up talking until 3:00 a.m., rolling cigarettes from drum tobacco, slack line walking. Very cheap, $5 a night (ten years ago). Great weather, solid blue sky, 70 days, cooler at night.

    Hey, Joe! It's only a hundred bucks to fly up. After all these years, a real meeting would be great.

    No exact date of travel yet, but I'm shooting to get out of Alaska around the eight or ninth. Playing it loose. I'll know when it's happening.

    Just visiting in Nevada and Northern California. I'll be probably in Seattle around the turn of the year. Maybe we get to meet then

    Cool. No dinghy sailing then though I may also be traveling to visit relatives soon, long past due. First back east, then maybe later in the fall also in the San Francisco area.
