Thank you note

Hi everyone;

I just wanted to post a short note to let everyone know that I very much appreciate all the comments and support regarding my absence from the November shows. I apologize for not answering them even now. Unfortunately my declining health did not permit my attendance. I got kind of backed up. I was hospitalized for nine days from Nov. 26 until Dec.5th. The PA Deer season was pretty much a wash for me. I spent recovery time at the cabin with my friends, and they brought me home today. I’m still in recovery mode, and have a ways to go before I will be able to say that I am feeling better.

Thank you again, everyone, for your comments and support.
