thanks, I am pleased, I know it will take time. I am actually going to my club tomorrow to hit some balls. the PT said to try to hit some short irons a few times and see how it feels. I'm psyched.

Ron:

Wonderful news.? Sort of like the old saying about the trip of a thousand miles beginning with that first step.

The improvement from 0 motion to 2" is thousands of percent, and it probably gains momentum from there.? Getting the muscles firing at all may have been the biggest hurdle.

I missed the knife! But the Reef flops were up again this morning.  :)

Ron, that's awesome! That's a big improvement!

Reef sandles were up again......

Did you see the Head sx13's and then the lange 120's? They also had head Mojo 103's, I almost had to buy a pair. That's a nice pow ski.

After the torture I have endured to get the current boots to fit well, I would not DREAM of buying boots without trying on first!!
Anyway, completely missed those.

Lynn:

This is ancient history at this point, but what you perceived as torture I have on good authority others perceived as extremely suggestive and HUGELY funny.

In fact, I would imagine that Ron or Gary or Ed would buy you a new pair of unfitted boots just in the hope of reliving the episodes????? ;D

The three non smileys are the EMBARRASSED icon! :D

Besides, it was you and Gary laughing your a--es off. And ( I AM SURE!!!) making suggestive comments to the ski shop guy about what the noises were.
I was just trying to get my boots on.
You guys were BAD, BAD, BAD.  >:D
But that's why I like you. ;D

Well Lynn, I am just glad that you didn't get your lift ticket pulled for soliciting in the Lodge.? ?>:D >:D >:D

And I still think Ed should have had to pay for the pleasure.?  :o :o :o

Notice how Brad and Glenn tiptoe carefully around this one, curious but unwilling to open Pandora's box.
