...but i have been out all this last week sick. first my wife came down with a stomache ulcer; then i get an abscessed tooth, with facial cellulitus. i had to have emergency surgery thursday morning. i saw an oral surgeon, and he cut and drained the abscess, and removed three teeth. i have been doped up pretty good though- and legally! i only worked 2.5 hours all week, and only had 14 hours vacation to cover the 37.5 i missed. so i will be having a small check soon. ouch!! anyway i am glad to be back now. i have been logging on and reading some, but haven't said much in any threads, for fear of i might say something i didn't mean, as the painkillers were going good. anyway- welcome to all the newbies to the SMF.
