Lefty

As usual I'm probably the last to find out but I just read that lefty recently had a mild stroke. He recognized the symptoms coming on and got to his doctor quickly so as strokes go his was mild. From other boards they say he is doing good but will be requiperating for a few months but should be back to the same Lefty we all love. Mark

I read the same thing a few days ago, but didn't want to post about it here until I heard it from a reliable source.

Get well soon Lefty!

I just spoke with Lefty on the phone and he sounds great.

He told me that he thinks he caused a minor stroke by poling his boat for about a mile upwind and upcurrent, after suffering a motor failure. The motor failure was caused by sucking a bicycle innertube into his jet drive while fishing with his grandson.

At any rate, he is going to obey doctor's orders and take it easy for the next couple of months.

With any luck, maybe now he will now sit still long enough to finish that autobiography!

Go Lefty!!!

I'd luv to see Lefty pen his autobiography.I have asked a couple of friends in the outdoor writting biz to press him about it and they have told me thats not really the type of stuff he writes about. I think his "Little Library" book with his jokes/funny stories comes awful close to his life story. Mark

I am TOTALLY bummed that he won't be here next week. But at least he's ok. Glad I got to see him in Denver at least. He'll be back on his feet and calling me a "Dumb-A" again in no time.

I spoke with Lefty a few times this week and he's doing just fine -- even finding humor in his emergency room experience.

In typical Lefty fashion, he commented, "When I left the hospital I was given a note explaining what activities it was safe to resume. It said it was OK for me to wash my hair; heck, I haven't been able to do that for years! I was particularly happy to find out I could resume my sex life!

Hes going to spend time getting back to work on his biography as well as writing a number of magazine articles.

You cant keep a good man down.

Mike
