    Hi folks

    Today marks the one year anniversary of the extensive surgery I had for pancreatic cancer. I had a two week hospital stay and a six month regimen of chemo therapy. Since then I've been getting absolutely clear CT scans and feel great! Thanks for your support back then!

    Here's to good health for everyone! :thumb:

    Ralph...

    ...I had no idea! See- nobody tells me anything anymore.

    I'm glad you're around and I hope for very much more. I always enjoy that you're PC (and I do mean PennCentral).

    Regards,

    Mark

    Thanks guys! My wife and I have a campaign to "take back the Fall" since I missed my favorite season last year. We're going out to eat, enjoying walks in the cool air, plan to go to the local apple orchard, take a weekend trip to the North Shore of Lake superior, etc. Its going to be a great Fall this year! Plan to see some trains too. :)

    Ralph, last year we had in Switzerland one of the most colorful fall seasons I can remember. Now likewise, for this year I wish to you and your wife the most blazing and dazzling autumn leaves you could imagine! :)

    Take care, enjoy a beautiful fall together, and hopefully many more to come! :thumb::thumb::thumb:
