You're spectacular Tony! Like a few if my friends currently having a tough time health wise, you seem to have a sense of humor about and positive attitude. That goes a long way.
And hey, better to look like Sir Anthony Hopkins -- he's aged quite well in my book, though I'm sure he's older than you by decades -- than Jaws of the James Bond franchise ;)
Be well
In my book, you can either stick your head in your hands, or you can get on with life. The first achieves nothing, so might as well do the second - it's much more fun anyway.

Pity Sir Anthony only shares a first name and a machine with me - he could have given me some of his looks!! Right now, I'm bald as a coot thanks to chemo - they tell me it will grow back and could be curly: having had straight hair all my life, that might be different!

I hope you will excuse my 'multi-post' last night
but I had had a slight accident at the end of the
day..a heavy metal pole fell on top of my head...
can you believe it, had been shinning up and down ladders most of the day, securing the roof of the new shed etc., when about to finish and come indoors, that happened.
The good news I remained conscious and in full command of my faculties, and was able to proceed with making the evening meal. lol
Dear me, it never rains but it pours.
Speaking of which, the Heavens have just opened,
and it's raining.
Wimbledon, as you say Tony, full of surprises, who would have thought Serena in particular would go out at this stage, sad to see Laura go too.
Roll on Saturday for the Rugby, I appear to have caught the bug!
The bad news for me is that I will probably miss the rugby on Saturday. What a bummer. Have friends from St Louis who I haven't seen in nearly 20 years staying for the weekend, so unless it is chucking it down with rain (and the forecast is good sadly), will be in Falmouth, showing them the work of Henry VIII's minions with the castles and telling them of the villainous Killigrew family who almost single-handedly created in town in the 17th century.

The hospital wanted to give me a blood transfusion on Friday - having cleared my yardarm for the day with early radiotherapy as my friends arrive Thurs, told them either the day before or Monday - no way on Friday. Cancer does not mean my life is on hold!

yeah, exactly Tony ... surprises galore! Following men's tennis kind of waned for me after the era of Connors, McEnroe, Natasie, Gerulaitus, etc. and Lendl, Becker, and Agassiz (sp).
To some degree, I would have agreed about men's tennis (kept a passing interest in Henman and now Murray), but this Wimbledon has changed my view. Having had to watch it with the treatment's effect (daytime UK TV is as bad as in the USA), am hooked on it again. Whilst serve/volley was spectacular, it did pall after a while. There is now more variety in the game as it used to be back in the 60s when I first remember watching.

the major parts expense is in the brake line pressure hose.. as the hose has to flex and travel with the wheel housing ..price is $40 per foot I needed 5 of them
sounds like a lot of labour .. what is the hourly rate to get mechanical work done these days?? I am guessing that $450 is about 8 hours?

I am reading a book that was published two years ago. In it they said that NSA was reading every email, tweet and post on those big Cray computers. Some secret :)
government snooping into the public has gone on for hundreds of years in every nation on earth ...... its just new technology now ....

Many people suspect that the catholic church used the confessional as a means of spying for the government ... in return they got government support to spread around the globe.

I not fond of fireworks actually. I almost lost my hand when I was 2, almost 3 - my birthday is the end of the month. I looked like god's most pathetic little creature with my hand all bandaged.
Sure, some of the colorful bursts are beautiful but I'd be just fine without them.
I hope you enjoy your day .... hoist a glass for me ;-)
don't take this wrong , but what in the hell are you doing with fireworks at 2/3????????

Good luck mate, you'll be fine. Often the anticipation is worse than the reality: I've found that with much of what I gone through so far.

Yah, the Wimbledon finals are "anybody's guess"!
My DO goes crazy whenever they are shooting off fireworks, also during thunderstorms .. so Canada Day and HAlloween are bad nights for the poor critter, he sits on our laps and shivers.

I'm gonna take a shot in the dark and predict Lisiki for the women's, but I don't want to jinx the men;s....

I think confessional/spying suggestion has been aired in
A few movies too FRANKO..

When it was revealed that Snowden was looking for asylum,
Ireland was one of his aims,
but, it's been rumoured 'we' won't touch him-as we don't want to
be out of favour with the USA.

Tony,
You seem to be going thru a lot but you
Are weathering the storm bit by bit
Kudos.

Tally...
Wishing you success in the next episode,
And I agree fully with you, re 'being put out fully'
I have no time for these half-assed

'you'll be awake
But you won't feel anything '
NO THANKS!!!

Kinda like when I'm having the echo cardio gram tests,
And he says 'you can watch it all there on the
Monitor' Jeez NO!! I prefer to keep looking at the patches
on the ceiling that need a fresh coat of paint lol!

Anyway here' to you both and better health.

Madame Grace .... your country make the top five worst possible McDonald's location list

Bray Town HallóBray, County Wicklow, Ireland

Bray Town Hall, built in the Tudor Revival style, was commissioned by Reginald Brabazon in 1841. The Town Hall served as the council meeting center of the small village of Bray. A wyvern, the mythological dragon featured on the Brabazon coat of arms, crowns the outside drinking fountain and is a protector for the town and its hall. But even with such a fierce guardian, Ronald could not be kept at bay.

Morning Denny - have every intention of doing so - half way there and it's full steam ahead. Trust Mrs D is now fully recovered: a chum of mine's partner had a fairly major stroke a few months back and I'm pleased to say she's doing really well.
Thanks Tony. She is back to normal. We were very lucky and it gave us a heads up about a possible heart problem which she is dealing with
