    GBB's- While I am still able I wanted to update my cancer status. Latest biopsy showed cancer is still present. Plus I have been fighting RT. Lung pneumonia. Countless anti-biotic iv's MD's gave me the bad final status. I have lots to think about by Monday. Also today I had a 2nd AFIB in last 2 weeks. Both resolved with some Metroprol
    IV's But issues are getting larger not smaller.

    Take Care,
    Greg

    WHO IS SIGNING UP TO GO WATCH THE TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE GOING THROUGH OREGON, IDAHO, AND ON TO THE EAST. This is all happening on Aug 21 and will not be visible for us old farts in the future, like 75 year or so, I was thinking of a nice spot in a national forest because all campgrounds and other facilities are already full.

    It is with great sadness and sorrow that I found out that Greg Horsefield has passed away last night in his sleep. He had developed pneumonia and his son Scott is taking care of his dogs and his place. He will be missed greatly. May he RIP. Time is passing by rather quickly lately. Hope you are all doing well.

    RIP Gregh, lots of Westchester memories, over 50 years ago. Thanks for the call Steve, I'll look for a photo to post that's a small enough file size for our site. Happy fathers day to all GBBs. Very sad news.

    Be careful when you get a transfusion. I heard they gave Greg the wrong blood type days before he passed.
    very sad. May he RIP.

    Hey Guys, Time for a roll call. What's up with all the GBB's?

    I had a partial cornea transplant about two weeks ago and the results were great. Need about 6 more weeks for full recovery. And we are soon (2-3 weeks) to be grandparents for the first time!

    My twin Grand Daughters are 13 months. We Skype (video conference call) each week. They are getting to the real cute stage. Then I guess comes the terrible two's in a year or so.

    Hey Joe, glad to hear the transplant went well. How many surgeries have you had now? It seems like a lot. I'm looking forward to seeing you guys at Al's house on 8/12. I'm trying to round up the usual suspects.

    Willie- Four on the rt. eye and one on the left. Yea, it seems like a lot but spaced out over 3 years. I'll try to get to Al's in Aug. but may get sidelined by the grand kids birth which is due right about then. I'll let you guys know. Steve mentioned that he would miss this time due to prior commitment.

    Hey Al, thanks again for everything you have done for us over the years. For those who are interested, here are the four best seasons in MLB history.
    1906 Cubs 116 wins in 154 games.
    2001 Mariners 116 wins in 162 games.
    1998 Yankees 114 wins in 162 games.
    1954 Indians 111 wins in 154 games.

    Of these, only the '98 Yankees won the World Series.

    Willie should we become concerned about the Dodgers who have gone from cannot lose to cannot win? The game is on local tv tonight so I will be watching and hoping we can turn things around. Take care Al

    At the moment I'm not too concerned because Seager is out and they have playing a lot of their September call ups. Some of the pitchers who have been doing the most damage won't be pitching in the playoffs. I trust Dave Roberts on that. I will become a little worried if they don't start hitting again. Also they will need some help from Darvish.

    Hey Dodger fans. I think them bums are still the best team in baseball and will do well in playoffs. Angels got some good acquisitions and may be a threat but as always, pitching will tell the tale. They are fun to watch again, can score bunches of runs.

    Hope all is well with GBB's. Granddaughter in 1 month old!

    Joe - Take lots of pictures as they grow fast. My granddaughters are now 14 months and mobile, so try and keep up with them. My daughter and I do Skype and Gmail chat each week so I'm working on a wireless remote controlled motorized pan and tilt Tripod head that she can use from where ever to keep them in the picture without constantly running back to the webcam to adjust it. Screenshots make good pictures that you can crop quickly too.

    Willie, No I had no say in naming. They chose Violet which is ok I guess but your suggestions would be good choices. I'm feeling the Angels will not make the wild card slot.

    Dodgers are back o track and I think the Angels might sneak into the wildcard.. And what a USC/Texas game

    Al-Thanks for the encouragement. Angels will need help from other teams. Rams show signs of life and Dodgers are looking much better.

    Anybody like Captain Morgan? Awhile back I was in Von's alcohol isle refilling my need for the Captain when I found Captain Morgan CANNON BLAST. To be honest I bought a bottle because the bottle looked kinda neat. It was like a cannon ball with a fuse sticking out or maybe a cartoon bomb. If it wasn't worth stocking I could keep the bottle just for looks on my mantle. Anyway I ran out of the Captain tonight so I tried the Cannon as a shooter (it's labeled as a shooter) and was pleased. It's 78 proof so it has that after taste but a couple other front end flavors I can't quite ID. You should have a bottle.

    I've had the regular Captain and liked it. Haven't tried the Cannon. You are much more experienced than I am.
