OK, I have some explaining to do. For the second time in eight years I have missed a Magazine due to reasons beyond my control (More or less).
On March 28th I had a complete left knee replacement.
Some kind of reaction to meds, or something, had me fighting every nurse on the floor so I could go home. So after being tied to the bed a day or two and calming down, I lounged in the hospital for 3 days, (the last day spent analogizing to every nurse on the floor, especially the one I had tried to bite.)
I was transferred to the rehab hospital for 3 more fun days. I finally got back home, but was not thinking to much about the magazine.
So please forgive me for taking an unwanted but needed vacation.
By the way I am walking great and no longer have a limp.
