Re: Thursday Austin Lunch M&G - 11:00 (Billy's on Burnet)

Gee, that was a threadkiller.

I saw on another thread that RTB is Oct 13-15. I haven't confirmed it but I should be back in the saddle by then.

Glad you found about the condition and are telling the story.
Hope the 3 months go by quick.

Re: Thursday Austin Lunch M&G - 11:00 (Billy's on Burnet)

Glad to hear you got repaired Daave. RTB, I've never been and I'm off all those days but tentatively planned to go see NHRA drag racing in Ennis that weekend.

I hope to be at lunch tomorrow, 7/6/17. May ride and if I ride prolly the Suzuki.

Re: Thursday Austin Lunch M&G - 11:00 (Billy's on Burnet)

I learned today that Billy's discontinued the nachos. Apparently, I was the only one buying 'em. That made me a little sad. But not a sad as the chili-cheese fries made me just after lunch. Good to see the crowd again, if you can call 4 a crowd. Oh, and chopped liver, too...

You missed a medium size turnout of eight as well as the telling of good news stories. I related how the flashing lights in our mirrors as we cleared Jonestown last Sunday turned out to be a firetruck.

I worked some OT that day and was in Jonestown from 7a-3p. I don't remember which days I went to fires but there were 3 fires in two days. I didn't run "code" which means lights and siren, just went a little quicker than normal.

Sorry I didn't join you guys for lunch, just wasn't feeling it as it was also a work day. I'm off the next 4 Thursdays so will prolly show up then. No worries about getting back home in time to get off to work in time.

Did have lunch a week ago with Jerry and his wife Cindy in Elgin, they recently returned from Ireland. Got to hear about how nice it was and the "heat wave" the locals were talking about that apparently was over by the time they got there. May not have quite reached 70 degrees but they overheard two guys talking about how hot it was and how they couldn't get anything done. Ireland.

Speedy recovery !!!
Where i work we do ~600 open heart surgeries/yr. Not sure how many coronary stents we place. We do ~2500 cardiac caths/yr.

I won't make it today. I'd hoped to, but too much going on at work.
