In Dry Dock

Sorry I've been gone so long.  I took a broadside amidships.

Had to have a 4-way bypass and then what's called non-union of the sternum (it won't grow back together).

Added to that I've developed some sort of auto-immune disorder which is attacking my eyes (took a while to type this as I can barely see the keyboard).

Hope you all  are faring well and I'll report back for duty when I can.
