    Looks like a cool event. Don't know if I'll be able to make it down there this weekend, but I'd like to check it out if I can. Are you going to go, Mohammad?

    I used to go when I lived on the left coast but I'ts a little far for me to drive now.

    I wanted to but my mom had a knee replacement surgery done on Tuesday. She is in a rehab facility now. I will be spending most of the weekend at that facility.

    Ooh, I can understand your not going. Give her my best regards. I wish her well and hope for a speedy recovery. There might be some pain and difficult exercises now, but it will pay off in the long run in the form of reduced pain overall.

    Wishing your mom the best

    Had a wood sailboat once. Total maintenance pain. Glad we have a cheesy fiberglass one now.

    Thanks Vaughn and Sharon. She is in a lot of pain but hopefully it will be better for her in the long run. If this turns out ok then she will go for the knee surgery on the second leg sometime next year.
