Thanks for the update.

Take your time on the book and enjoy the publishing process ... It is not like you are rushing to meet Xmas delivery. LOL

Hope your setback with your knee is minor and just a blip.

Good to hear from you Thor! That drive to be perfect will pay off in the end, though there may be maddening aspects to it now. As hard as this is, I hope you are still having fun! There is no rush on the book. I like to have something to look forward to and this will be like a gift when it comes. No pressure!

Sorry to hear about the knee. Guess it's not so much in your rearview mirror as I had hoped. I'm assuming you are still in PT. I felt like they were both aggressive, yet understanding. They understood my humor so that when I asked my guy if he had trained at the House Of Pain, he said yes, and I should know he had his masters degree...………...all said while he was pushing my knee flat to the table. I always found the range of motion work the most difficult, but it paid off in the end. Hopefully the surgeon will have some thoughts about the setback and what to do to move forward.

So nice to have you stop in with an update. The caring community you created continues!

Thanks for the update Thor! So sorry to hear about your set back. Hopefully something that you can bounce back from quickly!!! I'm sure we all will appreciate your attention to detail and care in creating the book. Wonder if it isn't the love and respect you both have for the "subject matter" that is pulling at you more than a tendency towards perfection? How could it not?

Thor,
Thanks for the update- your book will be perfect- you have the best content to work with and the right partner to make it special.

Hope your knee will continue to heal and you are not trying to do too much!!

Take care and tell Lee to take it easy on you:)

Hi Thor...Hope you don't have any stairs to climb at your house! Best to you as you make your way toward being "book tour ready"!

Thanks for the latest book news. You and Lee have probably tapped into a skill set you didn't even realize you had before this project began...writing, editing, manuscript submission, graphics design etc. The creative process may be rewarding...but that certainly doesn't equate to being easy. I appreciate that the two of you have a vision and will not settle for less. As others have mentioned, I'm excited knowing the book will come, it doesn't matter when!

A big thank you to Emdee, CHEVY, Amidds, Katydyd, St Jiub, and Not Quite a Shrilling and all of
our dear QZ followers for your blessings and concerns about my knee. It is now slowly improving
again and my first post-op visit to my surgeon is scheduled for next Thursday,, Sept 19th. I will
not over-do it again, I learned my lesson.

Good hearing from you Thor. Thanks for the update.A coworker of mine had hip replacement surgery 2 weeks ago at the young age of 53. She actually thought she would be back driving and at work 7 days later. It’s been 2 weeks and she is still adapting to using a walker from room to room. So much for “driving to work “ a week later. Either her surgeon explained nothing or she’s overly optimistic. At least the book keeps you occupied. I’m glad you two are perfectionists, it produces quality. Freddie was the definition of perfectionism, and look at what he produced.

Nice video on Freddie and David Minns. I read David’s book, but this video with excerpts and photos is the cliff notes on the book basically.

And finally
(Taken to show I included the gold ring Freddie wore at Live Aid.(Winnie's ring?)

Please note on photo 1 Freddie's bruise from his arm and is included!


And, though the Adidas trainers leave a little to be desired they DO have laces.

If anyone is seeing come from away and does not want details ahead-please skip this post. :)

(also like Zoe Gertz's portrayal of Captain Bass in the Melbourne, Australia production of "CFA" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNhCrzMozfw). Zoe Gertz could pass for a young Captain Bass. Her facial features bear a resemblance.)

Thank you so much for sharing this. Wow. Extraordinary. She is so good. You have inspired me to watch more online. I was in dress circle on side so didn’t get to really see close-up on faces. Nice to see it both ways. What really strikes me is how when you watch the performances you really see “real people”. And their stories/storytelling. Like the discussion here about how we all remember where we were, they do a song that really portrays that.

Thor, I'm glad to hear you're "slowly recovering" from your setback. I can't remember, and I'm too lazy to review previous posts. Was it your R knee or your L knee that had the most recent replacement? Why do I have the feeling it's your R knee, the DRIVING knee? You appear to be one of those hard-headed men who love to drive AND insist on driving ALL the time, no matter what. Give yourself AMPLE time to drive to PS to meet Lee. It's not a race. Take FREQUENT breaks to stretch out the leg and pack some ice to the knee. I recommend you carry a cooler in your vehicle.

@JB, I got the soundtrack for "Come From Away" last Thurs. and have been playing it on a continuous loop in my vehicle's CD player. I may have all the lyrics memorized BEFORE I see the musical! LOL The soundtrack is awesome. I don't sing in the shower (Is that TMI?). I prefer it to be absolutely quiet, but I do belt out tunes when I'm driving alone to the radio or to a CD. I've been belting out "Me and the Sky." I pretend I'm Jenn or Zoe. "American Airlines had the prettiest planes . . . " Are you aware that the real-life, retired Captain Bass' daughter followed her mother's footsteps and is a professional airline pilot, too? BTW, I forgot to ask earlier. Are you the one who had pre-ordered the "Queen + Bejart Ballet for Life," too? I received my DVD last week but have been too busy to watch it. How do you like it? I'm glad to learn the proceeds go to the The Mercury Phoenix Trust.

@Katydyd, have a great time @ "Come From Away" later in the month! I can't wait to hear your feedback.
