A while back Andy and I decided to go with the small exerciser thing and ordered it. The order confirmation said they would e-mail when it shipped. Today I finally got tired of waiting and went to their site to check the order status. Lo and behold it had shipped, and even had a tracking number. Wonder of wonders, the estimated date of delivery was today. The net result is that I actually answered the door when the UPS guy knocked. I think he was rather disappointed that I did, since it meant he had to lug the 80lb box to the door. On the other hand I did save him from an even worse trip -- the office is up some artistically narrow sets of stairs.
Andy's Granddad has pancreatic cancer. The give it a 5% chance of being operable.
