  1. Hi DW, I hope your surgery went smooth and you are recovering comfortably. I had Bladder (the Urinary kind, not Gall) Surgery back in 1983 because of a Dirt Bike Racing accident (handlebar got me in stomach). I got knocked out too, so by the time I came too I was in a hospital and drugged so I felt no real pain from it...but lordy when that Nurse pulled that "one" tube out....they heard me in China screaming.....yawwwwza
    I wish you a speedy recovery and am looking forward to seeing you in the booth again real soon.

    BTW: we meet a long time ago at Daytona, around 86', 87' or so, the year you beat Bill in a close Championship, I still have a Western Auto #17 Shirt of yours in my collection from back in those days (I'm 59).
    Cya at the Track soon.
