Thank you to everyone for all the birthday wishes - means a lot to me. And to all those whose birthdays I've missed - happy birthday and I hope you had a special day.
I'd like to say that I've been absent because of golf but that's not the case. In fact, I haven't golfed in the last two months and the last two times out, I had to leave the course mid-round, and I haven't been in a shop in a few months.
I've been suffering with a severe pinched sciatic nerve for over two months. I've had sciatic pain before but never anything like this.
I've had acupuncture and chiropractic treatments (one of my daughters is a chiropractor), massage therapy, physio therapy and muscle relaxants all in an effort to relieve the pain, a numbness in my right leg from my hip to my ankle. The only comfortable position is laying prone, which has made computer activity difficult to say the least. The last time I spent an hour in the car I almost needed a block and tackle to lift me out as my leg was completely locked up That was seven weeks ago, so my drives have been limited to my treatment appointments. But on the upside, I've been able to read a few books that were collecting dust - Don Winslow. If you're interested in reading (fiction) about the Cartels in Mexico, or the corruption in the NYPD, the books are pretty good.
Anyway, although it's not totally healed I'm happy to say it's getting better - hoping it is totally healed before we drive to Florida in mid-January.
So, I'm back and will attempt to read as many posts as possible and take part in the discussions.
I've missed you folks.
Some folks call me Vince - other folks call me...........
