    Yeah, I agree with Ed. You make us forget that you ever had a problem. This has got to be great therapy both mentally and physically. :D :D Keep it up.:thumb: :thumb:

    Brakie, you didn't lose faith in yourself, and you kept going on. And that's just great, my friend!
    You surely stand as an example for all who have to face a sudden handicap! Bravo! :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    And besides - your work looks great! :D
