Oil changed, check, new license and registration, check, gas, check, batteries charged, check, morning constitution, check, jigs, well I could use another dozen of that new stuff from Crazy Angler. Since I'm gonna win this deal anyway might as well getum headed this way. LOL  Finally get a chance to go and the wind is already over 20, oh well maybe tomorrow...
Hope things are well with Ed and company. If ketchin doesn't have any info, Vernon would be the only other member that might since he is a mod but I don't. As stated hope things are well for them..

I apologize for my long absence from this forum.  This has been a rough year for me.

My wife's conditioned worsened after Christmas and she died on March 17th.  We held the funeral after allowing time for all the relatives and friends to get here, many of whom live out of state and had to schedule time from work.

April was a rough month for me.  My kids kept hounding me until I agreed to go to Chicago for a month to attend my oldest grandson's college graduation and stay for my next grandson's high school graduation.  I did not want to travel to Chicago but finally agreed to shut them up.

Well, Chicago was cold and rainy most of the time I was there.  All three of my grandsons had baseball and soccer games after school and on weekends.  And of course all of them wanted me to watch them play.  So I did for a while.

Unfortunately I caught a virus that put me into the hospital for ten days.  The illness left me weak and the hospital refused to release me unless I had somebody at home to take care of me.  My son and wife are attorneys and have busy work schedules so they could not do it.  So the hospital talk my kids into my going into rehab hospital for a week for therapy to increase my strength.

If any of you have had any dealings with rehab hospitals you are aware that you don't spend a week in them.  They manage to finds reasons and ways that you must stay for 20 days, when the year's benefits run out.  Then suddenly you are well enough to go home.

I managed to get released after 18 days by finally telling them and my son that I was going home whether they released me or not.  Should have done it sooner but the truth is I was still only able to walk 200 feet by then.

Long story short, I am home again, ready to get back into action.  I still have problems and am seeing my heart doctor Thursday as they think the illness may have affected my heart.  I hope not but wouldn't be surprised since I had that valve replaced in 2014.

I am going to run the contest in the May section till the end of this month and then award 10 prizes if the tiers are willing.  And I think they will be but I must ask them.  It may take a few days longer to get the jigs if one of them has a lot of orders to tie before they can get to our jigs.

I do hope this will be my last absence from this forum and things will be done timely from now on.

Ed
