I was out for the hole some of 2 days. And bingo back I go. I am in with my back this time. You know the same thing I had back home. It never has got better but just the last few weeks has been worse. But won’t worry it will be O.K. pretty quick in fact it feels Better tonight. I hope you arn’t back in to Mother wrote and said she was in Calgary and you had to feed babe on the bottle. I guess you are bringing him up like I was. In fact I am still getting spoon fed, don’t you think. Well I hope you are not getting these English wifes looking at you or should I say trying to get around you. haha.
