    Unhappy Can't make it this year

    Unfortunately guys for the first time in 12 years I cannot make it down this weekend. For those of you that don't know I had knee replacement surgery on 2/10. I was doing great in recovery, walking fine, finishing up with PT and then I walked into a Diner on 4/21 and found myself flying into the air and came down right on the knee! Some moron in the Diner had placed a rubber mat down onto a wet floor so the mat just flew out from under me when I stepped on it.

    Nothing broken but for the next couple of weeks the knee and leg started bothering me and on May 7 my entire leg blew up like a balloon and the pain was like having a charlie horse from my toes to my hip. The pain was like nothing I'd ever felt before. So I wound up in the hospital for three weeks and just got out with no cure. I was bleeding internally into the leg and now my left foot is paralyzed. I can't feel it and have not motion at all. I think I'm going to own a Diner soon!

    In any case, with all the meds they gave me I'm still pretty sick so I can't really go anywhere. Please guys have a good time and Joe please have three Vodka Martinis for me? Make that four... per day! I fully expect a good cake toss video too. Someone call me on face time so I can see what's happening?

    John Clor and entourage won't be able to make it for the banquet as Ford has something planned for him but he said he may be able to stop by to say hi that evening. He'll definitely stop by the tent during the show too. I'm waiting to hear from Sam Auxier and Rick Markko to see if they can stop in.

    So again, have fun and I'm really really pissed I can't make it.

    Bummer... we won't know what to do in your absence.

    We'll be sure to have an honorary toast at the banquet and appoint someone to FaceTime you in the cake toss.
