    Fantastic progress – sounds like you swim just like me. Would think someone from Louisiana was a good swimmer to outrun the gators – my answer was walking on water.
    Also Happy Birthday and may this next year be a real great one.

  6. Tom Batewell, (Fort Mill SC) says:

    Hey Ken – I doubt I can put a Happy Birthday post together better than your niece Cortney above…wow that is a special post if I’ve ever seen one….I’ve got goose bumps just reading that.

    Anyway my hat arrived today as well and I would agree with some of the above posters, it is a really sharp looking hat. I was a little jealous when I read above that some have the ribbon as well but mine came autographed which is AWESOME…..thanks for doing that. My 11 year old son wants one so I am going online to get another.

    Happy Birthday Kenny!

    Tom (Fort Mill,SC)

    Green,

    A lot of famous included in the list of people born on this date (athletes, actors, actresses, composers, authors, beauty queens, etc) but the only other infamous person other than yourself is Bubba’s girl “Monica”.

  11. Ertz says:

    Green, Happy Birthday buddy. I’ll have a drink for you, as I’m guessing you’re not sipping yet. Get stronger every day and put some weight back on. It’s hard to believe that my gut is bigger than yours. Talk to you soon. P.S. Ark, I believe us Northern boys kicked your ass in the last swimming relay.

    Happy Birthday Ken! May all your wishes come true, especially those related to the speed at which your body is healing.

    Your joke du jour is on the way.

    Hello Ken, Happy Birthday to you. Glad to hear that you are making good progress. While your swimming, and you mentioned turtles– caution, theh vicious “attack turtle” is can be found in Florida swimming pools, and their favorite victims are golfers ! Be well, have a special birthday, and God bless. Deacon Greg Sherman

  23. Jack 'the Nurse' Garamella says:

    My man KG
    Old is only how you feel about yourself – so I know that you are 25 in your own mind. That’s the attitude that will propel you up the next mountain in your life – the greatest Comeback since Lazarus ! Please mention in your blog that I took better care of you than Mercer. He is telling everyone that he was Florence Nightengale. He was barely adequate and was sorely wanting in the ice cream sandwich department.
    Many happy returns -
    Jack-san
