Smile Hey, Birthday Boy

I'll be away from email (Crater Lake NP) on John Fisher's big day Saturday -- yahoo -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY, and many, many more to come. Have a great day (ride?), John.

Tks guys! I'm thinking a Blizzard B-Day cake will do! And maybe a ride out to the Coast. Coast Guard Astoria is having an Open House tomorrow, so who knows.

Re: Hey, Birthday Boy

Happy Birthday, John. Did you go to the Coast Guard Station? How was the Blizzard cake. It didn't melt from the heat of all those candles, did it? I hope you had a great day!

Hi Lee! yeah, we took the LT out to the Coast Guard Open House along with Art & Marcia. The weather was perfect: mid 60's up to almost 70 on the ride home. And the Blizzard cake did not melt since we had it stored in the freezer back at the house while we were out riding!

John & Howard, as you can deduce, we had a Great B-Day here, Tks for the good wishes everyone!

Thumbs up Re: Hey, Birthday Boy

Thanks for asking. Was able to make it back to God's country by last Christmas (barely), and doin' better every day.

They keep us going back to Palo Alto VA periodically to recheck everything and see if I'm having any signs of rejection, and only once - in May - did they find any problem. Fortunately they were able to wipe out the antibodies with some massive blood scrubbing down there, then following up with a chemo-like set of infusions up here at PDX. Since then, my strength is getting much better, color is back, and I don't have to even use a cane to walk!

We've moved to a better house in Salem; from NE to SE, and actually have some trees for shade.

Haven't done any more with my "Beast", so it's been around 4 years since I changed fluids, removed the battery and put her up on blocks. (Other than having her towed to our new digs. But still have hopes to get riding again after my legs get stronger - maybe next summer.

That sounds like great news John! And if you need any help with that LT just remember, Salem is only an hour away. Give us a ring if we can help.
