    Jo’Co brought a historical look at what we considered important. Anytime I was lucky enough to be tagged by JO’Co it was an honor and much appreciated

    HA!... Tim gets a little of the same puzzled look my wife used to give me when I talked about my "Skybox friends"... she just couldn't connect that we only knew each other from the computer BBS, and then occasional in person meetings. But then I took her with me to Florida and she met Mike, and Stu and Ralph (she already knew that bum Kesley).
    Now she gets it.
    Make sure you stay around Tim... Ya never know when one of us will pop up at your door, and you need to be up to date on what we're all fussing about. ;)

    I bought him 2 $18 beers at Anaheim Stadium in 2013 at a Giants vs Angel's game that featured some young phenom he kept talking about....kids name was??....some kind of fish I think. Got to meet the lovely Diane for a second time, and his granddaughter that played VB?....I cant remember her name. Anyway, the highlight of the day was viewing Coaches reaction to the Giants fans in attendance.

    Tim, I hope your health improves...it's good to have you back.

    If we're remembering all the old days, I guess I'd just throw out how much fun I had visiting with my friend Gerry Lawrence and then meeting the Prodigy guys in South Bend. I really miss him. I drove to Elkhart for his funeral and I'm sure his whole extended family wondered who the heck that guy was in the back crying his eyes out.

    We also got together with Terry Spencer and Terry O'keefe in Columbus and Austin. What good memories.

    Just caught up.

    Tim, hang in there, hoping things improve quickly for you and we all miss JO'CO.

    As to age, I turn 84 in 9 days, but I need to share that day with my wife as it is Mother's Day. I was born on Mother's Day and every 7 years or so still have to share it. :)

    Tim, I remember meeting you and others at the first ND game I attended with the Prodigy folks. Wasn't your son with you that day? I could be wrong. My memory isn't as sharp as it once was. It was a fun day. I don't recall the result of the game, but I sure enjoyed the camaraderie. Take care of yourself and don't be a stranger re: posting.

    Don't know if this is the proper place for this or not. But Thursday I am having a shoulder replacement, left shoulder. That goes along with my right hip which was replaced several years ago.

    If things go well it would be a short hospital stay, replacement on Thursday and home on Friday afternoon. Hope that happens.

    I guess after tomorrow any posting I do for a bit will be right hand pick and peck only. :)

    Thanks Terry. I think I am a bit old to improve my bowling but still enjoy when I get a chance.

    We are never too old Bill! I recently had a knee replaced. Up and running in about six weeks. Modern medicine is a breeze.:) I am confident all will go well for you as well.

    Thanks all. To clarify my to old statement it was not meant to old to have the operation, I have no fear of that and had a hip replacement a few years ago and it went fine. What I meant is that I am probably to old to improve my bowling game. Especially since they shut down our bowling alley and we have to drive over a mountain to the nearest alley these days. I won't bowl in a league and have to drive home 30 miles over a mountain especially in the winter. So my bowling is limited these days. I am going to bowl in the state senior games in mid September even if I can only stand at the line to let the ball go. Don't want to let my partner down. :)

    I expect a full recovery and it is my left shoulder and I am right handed.

    But I appreciate all the well wishes and totally agree never to old. :)

    Will post as soon as possible which will likely be by the end of the weekend.
