Thank you very much for the kind words, folks. The operation went well. Recovery should be full by mid May. Right now it's still meds, cold packs and keeping the foot elevated.
Alas the "projects". I may have another one started and finished in May. As I get more accustomed to doing them, the speed will pick up. But there will be no end. I'm matching art slides with music. I have a good sized slide collection and a room full of recordings to mix and match, so when I get done with the dozen that are already worked out, I'll be free to start on new ideas --- unless my wife threatens to divorce me.
