John Puckett - surgery

Mon Oct 10, 2011 6:53 pm

Phone call from John, 6:30 PM, 10 Oct 2011. Letting everyone know his hip surgery went well. Should be out of the hospital 3 days. Raspy voice from tube stuck down throat.

What does John want to talk about? Cubs. Not the food, cable channels, or the nurses. Cubs. What a guy!

Thanks for the update Eugene. Once the meds were off he will realize the nurses are around and will change his thinking from Cubs. :lol:

Good to hear...I'll give him a couple of days to recover from surgery and give him a call.

9PM and he's still talking Cubs! I got a call as well. Among other things I was telling him a lesson I learned about driving my "new" Lo-Boy across a ditch the other day. I cross this ditch with my other Cubs all the time but this was the first (and last) time with the Lo-Boy; as I eased into the ditch all forward progress stopped rather abruptly but the wheels keep moving. I look back and down and realized the Cub is hanging from the drawbar. This is where John really started laughing at me. I guess that mental picture was better than the pain medicine. Luckily I was able to work the brakes and get enough traction to work my way out without resorting to going and getting another tractor.
