It's been hectic here too. My father in law's Dad - 93 passed away Tuesday from cancer. Funeral set for Saturday. I've had 2 back surgeries in the past 2 months and a total of 4 in the past 2 years. Seems my black lab thought I was playing with her and she jumped on my back hernating 4 discs. Better now thanks. I'll be the one ducking in the doorways. I'm 6' 8" so no pins or nametag needed. Just counting down the days......Good luck on the new house. BTW calling me Grumpy was a choice between Shorty and Grumpy.
Sorry to hear about your GrandDad-in-Law and your bad back - - don't you just love Labs? So, I guess you won't need to be wearing a white carnation for identification... you should pretty well stand well above the crowd, unless of course, there is an "Over 6' 5" Club" convention.... Sound's like the hydrotherapy pool could your preferred hang out location.
