Chiming in late (I just saw this), I hope you feel better in the morning.

I'll certainly tell them, they love having overseas visitors.

Just got back from the Theatre and as expected the laughing was pretty painful, but so was the driving at least for the first few miles then it got a lot better. I'm now sitting down with a drink, a snack and some pills before going to bed. The good thing about being retired is that there is plenty of time for guilt free rest

Alan - if its any consolation, rib injuries will produce excellent results for Wednesday weigh-ins.

Get well soon!

Thanks for all your humour, it is well appreciated

This morning I am feeling much better. We went for a gentle bike ride to our favorite donut shop and I had no pain eating a bagel and cream cheese washed down with macadamia nut coffee.

No pain normal breathing now but I still have pain taking deep breaths (but I keep doing so to expand the lungs). Coughing, laughing etc. still hurts but I am confident that I am well on the mend.

Fortunately, electronic pollen does not affect me as yet.

It was a tie (5-7, 7-6), with lots of deuces making very long games. Re-match will likely be Tuesday or Wednesday evening, provided my recovery continues okay.
