It's Not Over Until the Manitobans Come Home with All the Fish!

There's an old Dressner family saying: It's Not Over Until the Manitobans Come Home with All the Fish!

Many readers have been sending me notes about my health. I am still taking tests but it does appear my brain has an abnormal mass of tissue that is not inflammatory, arising from cells of pre-existent tissues, and which is serving no useful purpose. In fact, this totally useless tissue has weakened my right leg, made me walk with a cane, and only allows facial hair to grow on the left side of my face.

Doctors are working around-the-clock on my case. Though I will not have a Twitter Feed, I will have more news by early December. I'll let you all know.

Thanks for all your concern. I'm feeling great otherwise and enjoying this totally new experience as much as I can. Every new life experience brings lots of wonderful new comic material and I plan to make the most of what is coming my way.

That facial hair problem must be scary!

Keep us posted, sir.

Teach a Manitoban to fish and you'll live forever...or something like that.

"Abnormal mass of tissue...which is serving no useful purpose." I thought you were referring to George Bush.

All kidding aside, I am another "anonymous" who wishes you the best and a speedy, comfortable resolution.

Your wine portfolio has always inspired me. I have laughed out loud at your blog many times.
But todays post was a great reminder to not sweat the small stuff and smile at the big scary monsters.
best to you and yours,
