all well I hope
Steve, The important thing is that you get better. There is always more time to ride. Glad you are out of the hospital and on the mend. I was just glad that I did not tip over on the trailer when I rode your bike onto it! Now that would have been embarassing! Big kudos to John and his wife for hauling you two home!! What a great group of people we have in the LT community. Catch up to you soon.

Seems I had a prostrate infection sneak up on me that knocked me out of the saddle about noon on Friday while we we're eating at Fat Buddy's BBQ in Franklin. (Really good que by the way).
I'd like to thank John Rehder and John Zeiler for checking in on me on Friday night. Tom Gallo for checking in on me on Saturday morning. The whole crew for getting Red Rover on board John Zeiler's trailer and to John and Jean for hauling me all the way from Iron Horse back to the house in Snellville. To Dave Dragon for getting everything I remembered in to van including me. To Keith Greer for hauling my laptop back which I had left in the room. And as always to Charlene, John and crew at the Iron Horse for making our Spring and Fall get togethers what they are.
About an hour after getting home I had Connie take me to the emergency room. I spent almost 3 hours in the waiting room before getting behind the doors to see a doctor. By the time the doctor got there, the BP was 165/124, temp 102.7, white blood cell 20,000 and increasing pain in the lower scrotal area. After a quick finger wave it was determined a severe case of prostatitis. The ER doc left to call my urologist and didn't come back for a while. About 10:30, he came back and told me he had talked to Dr Allen and I was going to be put in the hospital overnight. Connie left about midnight thirty to try and get some sleep. They finally rolled me into a hospital room about 0230 on Sunday morning.
Dr Allen came into see me and since I had a 102 and temp I could go home the next day. I ran a 101.3 fever through the night so that meant another night through the hospital. 99.1 wasn't enough to keep me another night so I was released about 1000 yesterday, so I guess that ended my STC weekend.
I'm sorry I missed some of you that came in on Friday and Saturday, but it was good to see all were there early.
Oh, and one picture just for Tom Gallo.
looking around for a possible replacement
