New AHS Journal?

Postby MikeWI » Mar 20, 2007 1:44 pm

Already?

I just got a 'newsletter' with promises of a Journal in April... went out to drop some mail in the box and there sits the new journal.... I've never gotten a Journal this early before... usually I hear about it on the forum for a while first.

This one has the 06 registrations.

On the cover is a nice shot of Dark Star, one of my fav's. Lotsa great pics inside.

Timing is perfect... Had hernia surgery last week...not moving much this week and have read and reread my current mags a few times... so this will be fun.

Hi Mike

:-? :-? :-? OC has been there and done that but a LONG time ago. Glad you got yours. Will have to go out and see if mine is here.

Take it easy if you can, but you will feel a lot better now.

Now you know you shouldn't have been tossing around those bags of Milorganite. :lol:

Hope you feel better before it's time to plant.

Best wishes, Mike. Words of wisdom from my doctor: "Stand up straight. It does not hurt any more if you stand up straight."

How many surgeries do you think he had had?

I swear I am the last person on Earth to get the Journal. Mine usually comes at least a month after I first read about it here.

I had a single hernia surgery 8 years ago this spring. It was an emergency hernia surgery. :o Didn't know that was possible, but I found out it was. I was fine when I went to work & started feeling bad shortly after I got there. Drove myself out to the clinic around 10am & was having surgery by about 2pm. This was when my wife & I had the flower shop & it happened to fall the week 'off' in between prom on one weekend & Mother's Day 2 weeks later. Viktoria's Dr. is right to a point, but after every arrangement I made the Friday nite before the holiday I laid on a counter for 5 min. trying to recover enough to go on to the next one.

In other words, don't rush it, Mike. You will feel better when you feel better & it's not wise to push it too far. You'll still have plenty of time to work in the garden this spring!! :P So get a couple of good books & relax while you've got the chance.

Hope you get back on your feet soon Mike! Take it easy while you can, there are lots of holes out there to be dug later, LOL. Thanks for the reminder, I wanted to rejoin the AHS as my membership had lapsed. I just signed up online for 2 more years, I really had missed that journal.

Thanks, Jimmy, glad you liked it :D

Get to feeling better, Mike! It sure feels like spring after the thunderstorms this morning, but I bet you'll have plenty of time to rest up before "garden time."

Hey, Mike...hope you're feeling better soon. Maybe the HJ came to you first just to help with your recovery. Please take good care of yourself. My DH didn't, and ended up having to get the repair repaired about 20 years down the road.

get well, Mike Good timing... get some recovery in before spring chores get too pressing.

Got mine also... surprising how they arrived at lots of different places on the same day.

Some good reading. It will be interesting to see how the first 15 Benedict Performance Award hostas match up with our top 10 list voting here...
