That’s such bummer!  Hope it heals quick.  Thanks for all your hard work and encouragement to the gastropods.  We’ll miss you being there.

Thanks for the wishes everyone. I really appreciate it. 

The shirts are headed to the hotel. John Welsh should end up with the box and a semi mangled printed spreadsheet of who gets what. The good news is that most of you got your names on the back and you know who you are. 

Steve Stafford and Bob should both have some cooler space and I've told John to buy beverages on my dime to keep the social part of this group alive. Not sure what's happening to the taco run but I hope I somehow get a picture of some of you with tacos and smiles.

We should be able to accommodate the taco's pictures.

I will see if I can get the Tech group to carry on with some sort of presentation on presentations.

For those not familiar, aside from being a guy with a box of shirts, I will be the guy who looks sort of like the adult in this photo.

I chose 12 as the age I stopped growing up. My body didn't get the memo. I think I forgot the TPS cover sheet.

I broke my clavicle a few years ago.  It was disgusting feeling before the surgery.

 

Even just sitting breathing caused the bones to rub against one another.

 

2 days after surgery, I was basically fine.  Wasnt allowed to lift or exert any pressure with that side for about 6 weeks.

2 plates and 5 screws.

Couple last minute questions re Gastro recoup: does "electrical wear items" include things like o2 sensors and batteries? They're electrical and they wear out, but I can't tell if that was the intent or just ignition wear items. Are things like oil/fuel filters considered "necessary for the retention of fluid"? We've got more recoup than the $200 max available, so it's just a matter of applying the correct items to recoup total.

If it's non performance let's roll with it as long as it fits in the overall rules. You guys are going to need to have a rules meeting and report back to me. 

I'm out of surgery. Good call not to buy a ticket to Florida. There were more little pieces than they expected so they ground them up to make a bone based JB Weld to fill in the cracks. You guys have a great time.

you know what's effing metal? using your own bone shards to make a filler paste to patch up where you snapped it. dang, bud. glad you're doing better.

thanks for chiming in so quickly re: those recoup items. I think I'm going to count the filters and o2's, since they're essentially just maintenance and feel like they fit the intent of the gastro recoup. The battery we have in there is smaller/lighter so as a performance enhancement, I think that puts it outside the gastro recoup intent. We have plenty of budget room either way, but I want to be thorough for establishing current status for future work/budgeting.

Seth, you're going to have to come play in DC sometime soon so you can drive Betsy to one of our Rallyx's and take turns co-driving with people cool
