Ahh... this is a family I have been tryign to join for many years now.

To complete the record I lost low end torque.

Doing pretty good Mark...as you know, it's never a process you can determine by a set time or date as to when you're really "alright" but I know that getting back "in the saddle" will make a big difference as to the mental healing...physically, just a few scabs and imperfections remain...of course, my wife says she has always loved my "imperfections"...but I never was going to be a Chippendale anyway...

...by the way, how are you doing?
