      It's starting to get triple digit hot over there again so it's more tiring work than it usually is and tempers are shorter. My wife and I do everything we can to keep him and his buddies updated on what's happening here in the US of A. I make sure to always keep him updated on our beloved Cubbies.

      Thank you for asking, PinHole.

        the heat. The older I get, the worse it gets for me. I don't know how they do it with all that gear on. Another reason to bring 'em home.  They said the water temp in Lake Ontario was 52 this AM. Tell him we send him a splash - a cooling mental mirage.

        I'm sure your calls and e-mail & letters are a life line for him.  It is unbelievably great that he can accept your opposition to the decisions that sent him there, but still not confuse that stand with your love and support.  Wish it were that way with my in-laws. (sigh...)

        Cubbies, huh? We Red Sox fans know what it is to suffer too!  In 2004, I propped my mother's photo up in front of the TV so 'she could watch' the games. The graveyards all over New England were trembling! Read on the Globe web site that they are sending David Ortiz to an eye doctor for an exam - something so simple - hope it works.

        Stay sane!
