    Hey, for all of you who have been asking, here we go. It has been 8 weeks now since my surgery, and I just got back from Indy. The Dr. said everything looked fine,and I had no problems. It is getting easier to get in and out of the pontoon boat since I have lost 65 lbs.,and 11 inches off of my waist. I am up to 2 and 1/2 strawberries for breakfast. Actually up to 2 and 1/2 to 3 ozs. per meal. So that means one thing guys and gals, if J.W. or D.H. goes fishing with me, we can actually keep the ones they catch.
