      1978 was awesome, but that stroke. just think of it as Disco, and you'll want me to rid myself of it. I just wish I could find a swim suit that doesn't involve my snowmen, I've been forewarned that it will be the butt of all jokes...

      You've been through so much, you've got the right to be little nervous about every strange sensation. Especially when you're dealing with the back. Nice 4+ on the TM, getting those March Madness Miles in.
