Whew ! Thank you, everybody, for the well wishes, happy thoughts and miscellaneous greetings sent my way during this recent (mis)adventure in Gatsbyland. I've learned a lot (pain management slightly high on the list), managed more [in a rather short time, too -- those rehab folks waste no time slave-driving a person into some sense of shape] than I thought could happen. AND? I am now no stranger to screaming shamelessly when vital bones break and surgeons get frisky rearranging them. But the best of it? Popping in here (I got home tonight) and seeing all these greetings/messages. I tip my hat to each and every one of you indeed !

Here's a quick snap of my rickety self taken at the rehab center's "gym" just before I got sprung. Not too flattering, I reckon. The hat is plain unsightly and the lei is gauche, even on a tourist were he in Honolulu. But please note that the femur is nicely intact . I'll write more when I both get some meat on my bones AND catch up around here in the next few days.

Good to hear you are home and on the mend Gats.

Re your photo, you didn't by chance pop into Cleveland on your way home did you? You would have fitted in quite well (looking like that) at the Adam Lambert concert held there on Friday night.

Glad you're getting better Gatsby. Your picture is fine, but lose a few more pounds and you'll be mistaken for Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Gatsby, I'm so sorry to hear of your fall. I'm certainly wishing you many better days to come. Since you fell in the "Spring," I hope you will spring back sooner than the "Fall!"

Looks like I'd better start preparing stuff now, eh? Typically, I only leave a cookie and some milk for Santa at Christmas, when he shamelessly invades my house. However, that "young man is David" line above? Young? Say what? Earns him an extra cookie, a cupcake, a beer and a gift certificate to WalMart as the holidays slowly approach, indeed . Thank you, Santa ! I've said it before, and I'll say it again: you rule!
