    Thanks Patrick and the same to you guys.

    You and I have a lot in common; we are both good looking, both have terrific shoulders and we both love the 50s.....seriously though, it's funny how much we do have in common. I hope your anniversary is as much fun as mine. We had a wonderful day to go with the wonderful life todate.

    Thanks for coming out to our meet! We couldn't get people in the area to come. We still had a decent turnout and everyone had a good time who came.

    Stewart, Absolutely let me know when you'll be in town. I'm really slow and short on volume these days, but am getting better as each week progresses.

    Budapest looks like a great city and I am really looking forward to the train ride across Europe, since we fly into London. Going through the Alps by train in particular should be awesome.

    Glad to see you on the road back to dominance!

    maybe the 400 and the breast events?

    Obviously I am kidding; my breast is atrocious.

    thanks so much. The doctor thinks it's just that and I a man on anti inflammatory pills again. I think I have a slight rotator cuff tear. Fingers crossed I can get through the long course season and then take care of it. I am not stressing about it and if I need to rest I can do that.

    It is great to be enjoying swimming again.

    I am back in the water on a limited schedule, but progressing well. I'm taking it slowly with no plans to even consider competing before the fall.

Thanks for all that and I hope to see you back in the pool and on the forums someday. 55 is still young in Masters swimming.
    Thanks Doug. Means a lot. The thought of starting from scratch is a bit daunting. But you never know ... Congrats on you #1s in the 50 frees!
