Good morning to all. It may or may not surprise some of you to hear that "Elvis has left the building"... Yes, believe it or not, Dad was doing well enough that he was paroled (released) from the hospital and sentenced to confinement at home to fully rest and recover. He continues to do well with his recovery and has even been up out of bed for a few minutes at a time to bark orders for all the various chores that need to be done around the farm. We're all thrilled that he is doing so well. However, despite being able to come home he will need lots of rest. We know that many of you would like to call or visit, but we are asking that you hold off at least until Monday. As you all know, if Dad had his way, he'd be trying to go out for his daily 5-mile walk with Maggie, fire up the tractor and/or get back to his ever-present political activities. As such, please understand if we try to protect him from his usual Type-A self!!!
