A Huge thanks to Shawn McCarthy & JD Bly, for their helping hand today! We put a hurtin on the list of things to do. Shawn is coming out Thursday to do the 10 meter circles.
Shawn was out today & brought a crew with him, Brad McCarthy, Kristi, & Mike Flynn. They did the 10 meter circles in record time, working well together. Awesome!!! Kudos to Jose Herrera. He played Sunday afternoon, & after his round helped me the rest of the day. We have a GREAT bunch of people & someone is always there. It's very heart warming. Others have asked to help also.


You guys are awesome!

Glad to hear that. I have been busy on Tuesdays lately, but plan to be there next week.   Will you be out there tonight?
No, Tim Murray is filling in for me on Tuesdays. I will be at the Dellwood Grand Opening, at least at the start. Also at the Channahon Classic, if that works for you.

Well, I haven't heard this word apply to me, remission! I met with the radiologist yesterday, Jan. 11, & she uttered that word. The last two psa reading were 0.01 down from 13.82. It is awesome news!!! It can pop up again, but it's coming up to 3 years & everything is going in the right direction. Another step in this process is to have the hormone medication leave my system. I did not get a definite answer to that question, but in general a few months.
Thanks for the support, it's huge!!!

Finally got a chance to read all 9 pages.  I wanted to congratulate you on this post, even though its very late.   ;D
Thanks ChainBanger, & by the way, the brain tumor is not cancerous. I would like to talk with you.

The course is pretty muck OK, but needs some touch up, if anyone is interested in helping. The main thing I'd like to get done & need help with is the 10 meter circles. I'd like to do that the week of the tournament.
Thanks

Shawn McCarthy
Shawn helped me with a number of things, last fall a basket ring #13 Channahon, spring, basket ring #1 Channahon, timber ring basket #18 Lockport. I think more, but I haven't noted. He is always there with a Great attitude! He brings people together when you're around him. He is an ambassador for Disc Golf in our area. Some on the list have created conflict with our community, not Shawn.

The Legend of Paco Grimes
As you all might know Frank just had surgery on his head. Everything went well and once again Paco kicked ass! I heard he woke up looking for his chainsaw & weed whacker. 
Everyone has been praying for you and we hope you have a quick smooth recovery.
We love you Paco!
That's really awesome!!! Thanks!!!
Here's what happened. I had a pituitary tumor (brain) removed. What they did drill through my nasal passage into my skull & removed the tumor. They patched the holes & packed the nostrils. I can't breath through my nose, so I eat with my mouth open, until Mon. they take it out.  Its a delicate surgery & took a little over 4 1/2 hrs. They're are nerves & arties around that area. What I need to be careful of is blowing the nose plugs, or the stitches used in the patch. I need to be careful putting pressure on that area. It's been relatively pain less. I'm shocked about that. They gave me 60 oxycodone for the pain.   
I left something that's important about the nose plugs/patches. If they don't hold, I have two hrs. to get t a hospital. The patch is holding the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) So I need to be careful.

Working all day this Sunday if anyone is interested. There is still a lot to do.
I realize, after Sundays work, that there is still work to be done. I can typically count on my hero, Shawn McCarthy, to jump in. Thursday would be that day for me. Please communicate what you want. I have tools I will share with Shawn, if we know what you want. I'm on schedule with what we talked about.

SUNDAY JULY 6 WORK DAY.
I'll be out around 8:00 am and hope to complete the Belmont area.
Bring:
lawnmower
weed whacker
rakes
power saws
hand saws
pruners
loppers
I'l have garbage bags.
We have just shy of two weeks to get Highland ready for Ill. State. Getting the Park ready puts added stress on Jesse. I think he has a ton to focus on relative to the tournament. I think next week-end up to the the tournament will be crunch time. If you can help out, that would be sweet. Right now it's general in the scope of everything.
