    Exclamation Hoping and Praying for a Good Outcome for Geoff's Eye Operation!



    As many of us know, Geoff Hands (Dorsetman) has had a few eye surgeries now, this last one having taken place on Monday, May 13th. As a consummate orchidist and as a true gentleman, sharing his knowledge, wisdom, and expertise (note the Oxford comma in the preceding series), Geoff has been more than willing to take on my own admitted lack of experience, among other things, as I know he has done for others.

    Geoff is also an accomplished photographer, world traveller, scholar, and artist - all of which require reasonable use of one's eyes, so this is a significant issue for him.

    I hope the rest of the OT members have a chance to read this, or learn of it otherwise, so that we can send waves of good wishes towards his home on the south of England.



    (Oh - and I put this in extra large font so that he will be able to read it himself as soon as possible.)

    Geoff - wishing you a speedy recovery and a very successful outcome so that you don't have to read this in large bolded print. - martha

    If he can see it at any point this week, we'll all be rejoicing, I think!
