Sorry that I've been so lax in blogging. Not sure why but I wanted to check in and let you know a couple things.

The first thing is to let you know that I'm still alive. I'm just finishing the second week of South Beach I and everything tastes like lettuce because it is. Not much effect on the weight yet though. Maybe if I shaved it would cause me to lose weight.

Secondly, for those of you who don't know, I had a double knee replacement back on June 18th. Since then the knees were pretty good. I certainly couldn't complain. But yesterday morning I played tennis again. Now that may not seem like much to you but it does to me. That was the first time I sweated in a year and a half. It actually felt good and I had no swelling and may even try it again next week.

I know this isn't much of a thought on Haiti but it was a thought on at least one that lives here.
Thanks for your prayers.

And so it goes!

Hey John - found your blog and wanted to say hi - Dave said he wishes he was there to play tennis with you - it's been a while since he's played (had shoulder surgery last year) but with your knees and his shoulder you'd be a good match.

We think of you all often - you're in our prayers. One of these days we may get back there...

when we move to town Troy will play you ---- he used to play a little bit -- REALLY hopeful that our Hope will be able to have your lovely bride for a teacher next fall ... :) Hope you're all well - sorry we were in town when you came last week - my sister told us you were here.
