Good luck DR
Thanks everyone. 3 week update. Walking around the house without any aids, still carry a walking stick outside "just in case" but I find it slows me down if I actually use it. Walked 1.5 miles yesterday. Get discharged from home health care tomorrow, will start outpatient physical therapy next week. Will also start working part time next week.

Hey Doc, hope you are ok, I've been off line for a bit.
I should have take a pic of the broken bottles of hooch that I found yesterday morning.
looked like a cat chasing a possum or something down in the shed.
Only lost a couple of full ones, 96% 2 years old. :(
Been sipping a bit of this lately.

One day, a man decided to retire...
He booked himself on a Caribbean cruise and
proceeded to have the time of his life, that is, until the ship sank.
He soon found himself on an island with no other
people, no supplies, nothing, only bananas and coconuts.
After about four months, he is lying on the beach one day when the most gorgeous woman he has ever seen rows up to the shore.
In disbelief, he asks, "Where did you come from? How did you get here?"
She replies, "I rowed over from the other side of the island, where I landed when my fishing boat sank." "Amazing," he notes. "You were really lucky to have a row boat wash up with you."
"Oh, this ole thing?" explains the woman. " I made the boat out of some raw material I found on the island. The oars were whittled from gum tree branches. I wove the bottom from palm tree branches, and the sides and stern came from a Eucalyptus tree."
"But, where did you get the tools?"
"Oh, that was no problem," replied the
woman. " On the south side of the island, a very
unusual stratum of alluvial rock is exposed. I found that if I fired it to a certain temperature in a volcanic vent I found just down island, it melted into ductile iron and I used that to make tools and used the tools to make the hardware."
The guy is stunned.
"Let's row over to my place," she says, "and I'll give you a tour." So, after a short time of rowing, she soon docks the boat at a small hand built wharf. As the man looks to shore, he nearly falls off the boat. Before him is a long stone walk leading to a cabin and tree house.
While the woman ties up the rowboat with an
expertly woven hemp rope, the man can only stare ahead, dumb struck. As they walk into the house, she says casually, It's not much, but I call it home.
Please sit down." "Would you like a drink?"
"No! No, thank you," the man blurts out, still dazed. "I can't take another drop of coconut juice."
"Oh, it's not coconut juice," winks the woman. "I have a still. How would you like a Jack Daniels neat?" Trying to hide his continued amazement, the man accepts, and they sit down on her couch to talk. After they exchange their individual survival stories, the woman announces, "I'm going to slip into something more comfortable. Would you like to take a shower and shave? There's a razor in the bathroom cabinet upstairs."
No longer questioning anything, the man goes
upstairs into the bathroom. There, in the cabinet, is a razor made from a piece of tortoise bone. Two shells honed to a hollow ground edge are fastened on to its end inside a swivel mechanism.
"This woman is amazing," he muses. "What's next?"
When he returns, she greets him wearing nothing but a bandana around her blonde locks and some small flowers on tiny vines, each strategically positioned. She smelled faintly of coconut oil. She then beckons for him to sit down next to her.
"Tell me," she begins suggestively, slithering
closer to him, "We've both been out here for many
months. You must have been lonely. When was the last time you had a really good ride?"
She stares into his eyes.
He can't believe what he's hearing.
"You mean..." he swallows excitedly as tears start to form in his eyes,
"You've built a Motorcycle?”

A friend is coming to visit this weekend. So, I lined up a few bottles for him to try. A bit heavy on Bourbon, I know, but I like it now a days along with Rye.

That should get you through the weekend. I just recently got the Old Forester and Duke from O'Darbys too. Haven't cracked them yet either. Not a big fan of the regular MM but it's a good value. They have some outstanding cask strength special releases. Now I got to go pour a glass. Cheers.

Will become a table on the porch of my cabin in Canada. May have to wait a year or two, I'm hauling 1200 lbs of batteries up this year. Won the barrel in a raffle but then I bought 4 bottles of the juice that came out of it. I want to clean it up and at least put some wood preservative on it. Probably tighten up the hoops and add some screws too so it doesn't fall apart if the wood dries out and shrinks.
