    I met Tyson Sparks today

    Tyson Sparks and his family were returning from a Florida vacation today and he had a few minutes so he stopped by for a few. We met at exit 315 in Calhoun Ga. Tyson was having a hard time adjusting to the blistering southern summer heat. LOL. But we had a nice talk and it was great to meet a friend from PR. And another Olympus shooter.

    That's great and I must say, Greg, you're looking pretty healthy. How's the recuperation going. Tyson, you're looking good too. Are you as strong as those forearms look?
    Keep Shooting!

    Rehabing is going smoothly. I am riding my bike on short trips and am getting stronger by the day. Thanks for asking Frog.

    Re: I met Tyson Sparks today

    I am finally home, we got here around 1:30 AM. Nice to be home. The Florida sun was blistering but the 99 degree heat of Georgia was terrible. We stopped at the thrift shop up the street for a few minutes before getting back on that dreaded I75. I wish we had more time to talk, I could have stood there all day chatting. Or until I feel of a heat stroke! It was great to meet Greg in person and he did look great, hope to meet up with you again someday.

    And yes I am as strong as a OX, sometimes I hate being the big guy but I don't get messed with a lot LOL.

    How can I be lost
    If I've got nowhere to go?

    Wonderful! Wonderful!

    How great to see you looking so good, Greg! And how nice the two of you could have some time together. Wow! Who would have guessed this would happen a couple of months ago!

    I'm glad you're doing well, Greg - it's so nice to see a NOW picture of you. You do look better than I thought you might look at this time! :thumbsup:

    Tyson - it's so good you were able to get together.......

    So great to see PR member get a chance to meet face to face. Glad you were able to arrange a quick meeting. Greg it's so wonderful to see you up on two feet and getting out. I hope the rest of rehab goes well for you and you regain that same zeal for extraordinary images that got you in that mess to start with.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??
