Thank you guys I do appreciate your well wishes. I've had a busy day talking, first off I was awakened at 7.30 am by the phone ringing, it was our mutual friend Glenmore, in spite of all his many health problems he sounded as bright and cheerful as always. It then took most of the morning to open the cards and read the emails and the rest of the day up to not long ago answering Skype calls and entertaining friends. I feel so thankful that basically I'm in reasonably good health, have a wonderful wife and so many good friends, many friendships having been formed since becoming a member of this forum which is so much more friendly than the other forums that I'm a member of.
