Shoot The Breeze / Re: My Friend FRANK
« on: December 08, 2010, 08:48:44 PM »
I had an appointment with GU (genitle urinary) today. It was in part about ED. What I found out is the nerves were damaged from radiation & it may or may not be permanent. I also asked about stopping the hormone shots. the Dr. simply said, we've found patients getting the shots live longer than those who don't. I know I said I could muttle through the shots, it was just a thought. Another question I asked is if cancer can reoccur in the prostate & he said yes. That was not music to my ears, radiation is not an option, it's a one time deal. The more research I do the more questions I know to ask. Another thing, the Dr. said half the patients don't know why their there. They just show up because they're told to. What stress that must put on the Doctors. On the lighter side the Doc asked me to drop my pants to inspect the jewels. I mentioned to him if he lost his job I was sure he could find something with the TSA. He laughed. He also mentioned this is going to take a long time for any finality. I've got to suck it up, but when you don't feel good half the time, it's a reminder of the process. I can't help but think about what Randy Moore is going through. I'm doing OK & appreciate my friends.

J-Town Ice Bowl / J-Town 2011 Ice Bowl / Morning Star Mission
« on: December 03, 2010, 09:28:44 PM »
At our last meeting we agreed to have our 2nd Ice Bowl, Feb. 5th 2011. Morning Star Mission is an impressive organization that supports the homeless & needy in the Joliet area. Many of us may not know what it's like to have no place to turn & the Mission picks them up. A tour of their work can be set up if your interested.
Saturday, Feb 5th, 2011, is the tournamrnt date. Help support the down & out in our community. I think we were 12th or 14th last year in our donation.

Shoot The Breeze / Re: Best Players In Illinois When You Started
« on: December 03, 2010, 08:53:30 PM »
Played 2 rounds with Flash and Frank at Eagle Ridge. Lost first round to Flash by one stroke. Then beat Flash by 4 strokes second round shooting a -8.
                                 I'm in la la land!

 As the saying goes: There's a first time for everything!

                                 ;D
Randy played very good!!! Ask him if his hand hurt? He was playing so well he didn't know he had a left hand. I yelled I'm the best driver in the world!!! Didn't work!
I've been waiting, it seems forever, for Flash to defend himself & nothing! Let me put his thoughts on paper. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut. Sometimes your the windshield & sometimes your the bug. That round Flash was the bug, & Randy was the windshield. It's not often Flash is the bug. You know I love you Randy!  :)
I'm typically the blind squirrel that gets whacked by the car. Not today!!! Mr. Moore was the bug. It took a long put on #18, 40' plus. Today I'm the windshield! The best driver in the World!!! It was a fun afternoon! What Flash shot doesn't matter, He's in my sights for next year, one step at a time. By the Flash aced #18

Yes, Sir.  I didn't want to type it out because some websites use bots to scan forums and pick out phone numbers for telemarketing purposes.
I took care of it Mike, still learning, & I thought I saw four nines. I have destroyers laying around. I'll put them in the car & you can check them out. I won't be at league Sunday but I'll have them with me the next time I see you.

Frankie,

I am really glad to hear that things are looking better. My whole family, myself included have been sending a lot of positive thoughts your way. I will pass this information on to everyone. Let me know if you need anything.

Jason
Thanks Fool. I've noticed my spirits are up when I'm with my disc golf friends. It's encouraging to my attitude. It will be a while before I know for sure. The first report was good news & brings joy to me & family this holiday season.
Thanks again Jason!

Frank Grimes - Some of the reasons why he was awarded The Gary Lewis Achievement Award.



Raised over $3500 for Morning Star Mission at the J-Town Ice Bowl
http://www.morningstarmission.org/

Busted ass all year while battling cancer to continually make Community Park one of the most friendly and beautiful places to play disc golf. The amount of time and hard work that he puts into this course is breathtaking.

Community Park in Channahon was in immaculate condition for all  5 tournaments held there in 2010
The List:
J-Town Ice Bowl • Feb. 27, 2010
The Dave Pitner Memorial • May 1 & 2, 2010
Chain Reaction 2010 • June 26 & 27, 2010
2010 J-Town Disc Golf Club Invitational • July 9, 2010
23rd Channahon Classic • September 25 & 26, 2010

Vice President of the J-Town Disc Golf Club
http://jtowndiscgolf.com/SMF1/index.php?topic=8.0

One of the founders of the Frank & Bean’s Handicap League.

Worked extremely hard on getting Highland Park into shape for IL State. Concrete work, stump removal, garbage pick-up, and hours of weed whacking including a couple of hours in the morning before he played in the tournament.

He worked anywhere and everywhere when he was called upon.
 
Sorry Paco that this wasn’t mentioned at the ceremony.


Please feel free to elaborate on anything that was missed or something you feel should be mentioned about Frank.
Thanks for the kind word Jesse. I'm glad to be a part of many good people. You've been a staple over the years, & that make the compliment even sweeter.

The first battle is won. My psa is 0.36 down from 13.82. Talking with the Dr. it seemed they were expecting nothing less. Next, is testing every 6 months to see if the cancer comes back. There are side effects from the zoladex (hormone shots)  & I can handle that.
Soo!!! The first battle is won but the war continues.
Thanks for you prayers & encouragement it means everything.
  
                                     Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Well.......This has been a long anticipated week for me that's coming up. It's like a 5 year old waiting for Christmas Day. Needless to say I'm extremely anxious. They take blood tomorrow Mon. the 15th & I meet with my Dr.  Wed. the 17th. I'll learn how the treatments did. This mental process has been on my mind since April.

Lockport is looking sweet. There are hole changes, chip spread around, general maintenance. It looks real nice. It's going to be interesting with how the water is going to affect #15. Good work guys!!!
