    That's the spirit!! I'd wish you luck but looks like you don't really need it with that kind of attitude...

    All the best nevertheless

    Thanks Phillipe,

    I really didn't want to say I'd be moving two and one-half blocks West if I couldn't resume playing. FYI that's location of our plot in cemetery, but at age 74 and my overall health, I'm realistic as well. In July 2008 IMO I was playing quite well ... or at enjoyably so to my family, friends and myself. That's my goal by July 2011 and if I succeed I can go shopping for an upgraded instrument my wife tells me and I tell her I can make do with what I have ... er a flugel might be fun.

    First dental appointment next Tuesday, 50 miles away in Rocky Mount NC ... just an exam to plan with.

    jbkirby & all

    First appt with oral surgeon set for next Tuesday in Rocky Mount, 50 miles SW of me. Just exam and x-rays to plan the "attack" on three roots as were former crowns. Not fun, but has to be. My goal is new upper denture by end of July 2010 and attainment of achieved first comeback in July 2008 by July 2011 or, as I've otherwise stated, I'll be in hell.

    Prayers certainly help ... or I wouldn't still be here.
