    It would be nice if we could sit and talk over tea. I'm willing to bet you have quite a few life stories to tell :) Thank you for sharing a bit of your life with me Tom; your strength has given me some. I envy your positive outlook; mine is not always thy way. But I am working on that ;)

    Tom that is unbelievable! That is so very much to take. I knew you were strong! I've been avoiding back surgery for a couple of years now. Any advice?

    Oh Tom those limitations suck. I hope there are lights in your tunnel, so-to-speak.
