Hello All! Yes JB is still around and kicking even! My heart failure took a lot out of me but now that the drugs take hold a bit, all 10 of them, it goes a bit better. Incase you don't know, I have Congested Heart Failure, complements of 50 years of diabetes type-1. Yes, I got a medal from Joslin. Got a bad big toe infection, can't walk well and going to Costco today for the first time, they planted me in a electric buggy to get around. When I returned the buggy, they said to me that I would not get it again, why?
It was very busy and the darn buggy did not follow my direction putting two ladies in the hospital and three people temporarely limping. They all forgave me, Xmas you know! I forgave them also, for standing in the way!
This is really a tryout for my new computer and a tryout for me also. Will be back telling you all kinds of things.

You are one of my favorite people! I love hearing from you! Just listen to your body. If you feel gurgly inside then call your doctor. I worked for 7 years in the Cardiology department of Barnes Hospital in St louis before becoming a recruiter
Soak that toe in some hot salt water. It will draw the infection out and help you heal much faster! Love to you, and Merry Christmas to you and your wife!

My husband really had a similar experience. He was driving the cart right behind me when a ditzy lady decided she had to get a food sample they were serving and walked right into the cart. To make matters worse, she then followed us down an entire row yelling at him because he "hit her" when she walked into the cart. If I hadn't seen it, I would have had a hard time believing it!

Welcome back, Ben. Sounds like you've had a tough time of it recently but still have your sense of humor very much intact! I look forward to hearing more.
