Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I hope you get a quick (and full) recovery!

Winter in South Carolina is when things actually get nice for biking.

Thanks, it should be a pretty quick recovery. It was a relatively minor surgery. Just to clean up a torn meniscus and remove a cyst. Kind of a weird place for a cyst but at least it wasn't a blood clot. That's what it looked like in the MRI.

Yikes, got impatient with the lack of snow yesterday and tried skiing on the icy slopes at our local beginner hill. I only fell once, but trying to hold an edge on a sloped skating rink killed my legs and hips. Guess I'll hold off and let nature and the snow guns do their work. Also, I badly need some lessons. I'll be baaack.
