Thanks andrew, but I already had 4 done, so I should have no trouble covering. Pops is tough. He "arrested" on the table when they were preping him, but he pulled through, and two days later has moved out of ICU into the transition ward and is sitting in a chair. Tough bastich!
My Dad had a triple bypass two years ago...didn't even know he had a heart problem...long story short...he had 4 yards of mulch delivered to the house and it sat all winter, well it became a home for hornets. Needless to say while doing Spring/Summer yard work he stabbed the nest with a pitch fork. Got stung over a 100 times; which started to close is air way. My Mom got him in the car and started the 20 min. drive to the hospital, however, only got 10 min. out and noticed my father wasn't breathing...so she pulled into a firestation that was on the way.
Dad was rushed to the hospital and during the ER visit they examined him and found the three blockages. Pretty much told him that if they didn't find these at that moment he most likely would have died very shortly.
I think I was more concerned than he was! Pretty much recovered in two weeks and was back to gardening!
The end result he is afraid of bees and damn near flips the canoe everytime we are out fishing Squalicome Lake! :+
I'll tie mine up today and should have them out in mail tomorrow. Sorry, I missed the post where you answered how many flies we were going to tie. So thought it was on a backburner. Will crank them out today.
