Well…..that’s a good start!

Bruno, I hope you don't mind if I hop on for a story that kinda sorta probably has nothing to do with anything other than how we interpret what the doc is saying. I don't know about y'all but when docs have me in the room and start 'splaining things, through whatever is swimming in my skull, I hear the teacher in the Charlie Brown cartoons.

I've been bouncing around in the bobcat and for the past coupla years have "failed" the docs prostate bloodwork. He sent me in for biopsies, less than enjoyable. My sweetwife drove us 2 hours back home, I kind of shuffled to the chair, opened up the forum for distraction and the first thing I saw was a member losing his dad to that cancer. Sort of a low night. And then the wait. Yesterday I was supposed to drive back over and meet with the doc. It was going to blow the day so I decided to work on the truck paint job. Uhh yeah, I painted Sunday... just before that unpredicted downpour. So I was down there sanding, and sanding and my wife came down in tears, go call the doc.

See what her mind did? Well, and where both our minds had kind of been. I smiled, "no, its good news". He was in and out of surgery and we finally hooked up an hour or so later. He said he wanted to save me the long drive, 12 cores of that little walnut and he didn't hit paydirt on a single hole.

So, by then I was tired of sanding and sprayed the truck. It has a unique texture but for a jobsite it looks good from a football field away. I think I might be, like most, a little impatient  :D
