    Welcome Bonedust. I trust you went to the G.F. Stronge for rehab. Keep working 8 months in is not that long ad a lot can return.

    A worldclass athlete still is a worldclass athlete; we just compete in other ways. Ya can break our bodies but you can't break our competive spirit. You live in a great Province with great things going on.

    Stay strong, get strong!
