    Get well soon Drakulie. Looking on the bright side, you'll be recovered long before Ambassador Sup2DResq from our TW Mid-Atlantic Chapter arrives in Miami for the diplomatic tennis exhibition with the South Florida Chapter. Should be an interesting event.

    You really should explain the circustances of your condition to the other TWSF members to see if they can shed any light on what is going on with you. It really is a strange injury/condition.

    We don't have cell phones, email, or even homes to live in. We most often communicate on this board by using the computers at our local public library ;)

    Dec 3rd Tennis

    I land in the morning and would like a hitting session by the afternoon. Anyone free? It would be great to set something up ahead of time.

    Klatu, Javier, Oscar, Dr_Punk?

    (Drak looks like you'll be out of commission for a couple weeks right?)

    Thanks for the B-Day wishes guys! But you are 4 months early. :)

    Sup, are you renting a car finally or do you need a lift from the airport? I had my MRI today. Good news! It is a pinched nerve in my back and I also have a "bruise/swelling" in one of the disks in my neck. The doc said it should heal on it's own, so I am taking it day-by-day, drug-by-drug! :)

    Hopefully, I will be better to hit with you Sup when you get in.

    I'll figure something out. Probably will as I dont want to impose (imagines Drak showing up in a winnebago with curtains on the windows).

    That's funny! LOL. Since I don't have a winnebago, maybe I will just hang curtains in the porsche. :)

    Seriously though, you won't be imposing. I have no problem picking you up. However, you may want your own car so you could go off exploring while I'm at work. Either way, let me know. Again, you won't be imposing. I already plan to take that day off of work to hang with you.

    I agree. I can run around town, see some sights, hit the beach, maybe go scuba with Oscar.

    How is the water Oscar.. and what are the prices.

    Oh, I forgot. I have a little tournament to play. Ha!

    I hear Hertz rents ferraris and GT Special Edition Mustangs.

    Absolutely. I'm available in the mornings, so we can arrange something with Drak.

    Looking forward to meeting you.

    By the way, don't pay attention to Javier. He's a solid player and will give you a run for your money :)

    Playing a tournament that week and Monday I would like a warm up with someone. Hence the need for Dec 3rd.

    I'm sure the other days will open up.
