It was about 3:15 this afternoon when Kelly's cell phone rang and it was Dr. Teriyaki on the other end. He had said a week ago today that he would re-submit Kelly's name to the liver transplant committee again and that is what he did. He told Kelly the committee has agreed to do another assessment with two conditions. If she can get her weight and strength levels up to their required stringent levels. Because she just got out of the hospital, they are giving her 2 weeks to regain some strength and weight. To say that we are a little 'over the Moon' here would be putting it mildly. We know it's not yet the final decision we hope to hear but it's the next best thing. A second chance:)))))

The first order of business this morning was to head into the village and stop at the Bayfield Garage. I made an appointment for the Jeep Tuesday morning. I'm hoping they can track down and fix the Jeep's starting problem once and for all. Thanks to readers who have sent in their opinions and suggestions about the Jeep's problem. We'll see what the garage can come up with. While in Bayfield, Pheebs and slipped around to the cemetery for a walk and luckily for me, it was a pain-free walk.

GROANER'S CORNER:)) The chief of staff of the US Air Force decided that he would personally intervene in the recruiting crisis affecting all our armed services. So, he directed that a nearby Air Force base be opened and that all eligible young men and women be invited. As he and his staff were standing near a brand new F-15 Fighter, a pair of twin brothers who looked like they had just stepped off a Marine Corps recruiting poster, walked up to them. The chief of staff stuck out his hand and introduced himself. He looked at the first young man and asked, "Son, what skills can you bring to the Air Force?" The young man looks at him and says, "I'm a pilot!" The general gets all excited, turns to his aide and says, "Get him in today, all the paper work done, everything, do it!" The aide hustles the young man off. The general looks at the second young man and asked, "What skills do you bring to the Air Force?" The young man says, "I chop wood!" "Son," the general replies, "we don't need wood choppers in the Air Force. What do you know how to do?" Again the lad replies, "I chop wood!" "Young man," huffs the general, "you are not listening to me. We don't need wood choppers, this is the 21st century!" "Well," the young man says, "you hired my brother!" "Of course we did," says the general, "he's a pilot!" The young man rolls his eyes and says, "Dang it. I have to chop it before he can pile it.
