Sorry to hear about the ticker!

G'day Steve,

Just as well you are not fitted with a 3 litre yourself and have the 4.2 heart fitted. I guess they have tuned your turbo up a bit. If you had electronc systems you could have just added a Dtronic though I guess. Steve, I hope you are feeling better there and get on top of your angina.

Best wishes to you and Denny,
Heather and John
Cheers,
Who?

... wondered where you'd got to.......

So....... Drugs? Stent? By Pass? What gives man?

Been there, it changes your attitude, for about 3 weeks, then we go back to our old ways........

Stay Well please.

Cheers

So let me see.........

here in S.A., it's 6 weeks I think before you can drive after that proceedure, could be wrong, but I know there is a small amount of time.

So............

I am asuming we can expect to see lots of you here on the forum mate!!

Oh, while your not using the Nissan, would you perhaps like to peel off the EO........

Geez! Steve, Thats pretty drastic action to get off work for a few days.. Specially when The big "R" is close by.
Take it easy mate and sit back and plan the trip!

Steve,
Glad you only got the "tap on the shoulder/wake-up call" and not the "Steve has left the building" message.
I've never been there, but can only imagine it would make you sit up and think to yourself......"Cripes, this is no dress rehearsal, this is the real show......I think I'll make the most of my days from now on".
Good luck with your recouperation mate and if you've gotta be on the road, try to make sure it's the trips you WANT to do, not the ones you HAVE to do.
I think I'm waffling, so I'll shut up now.....get well soon.

Hi Steve,

Sorry to hear about your enforced layup, but glad to hear all is well. I turn the big four zero this year and am learning fast that my body is not what it used to be. I once thought I was invinsible (like any teenager i suppose) but age has a certain way of showing you are wrong. I suppose one must learn to take heed of the warning signs.

Cheers

Captain
