    So tell your son congratulations from some random goofball on the internet. Or maybe leave out the random and the goofball. He's your kid, you decide. And congrats to you too.

    That's a great story... I love good endings like that... Just another example of how Mom's Rock.

    That says a lot about your Mom too. I owe a pretty big debt to a couple of physical therapists myself.

    I've had the love/hate relationship with my PT for 30 years. The hard work that those men and women have put into helping me as as an amputee has been invaluable. PT is a b***h, but without it and those people, I would be a "cripple". Instead I feel that I am a happy, successful person. For me it is work with my prosthetic arm, that becomes all new every year or two. It's not as profound as mobility, but my life has been enriched by improved articulation technology and improved kinesiology techniques, both of which are implemented in my life by the folks who coach and work with me in physical therapy.

    Not exactly Hughesian efficiency or elusiveness (more Gibsonian, really), but Nolasco got the job done against the team that is scissors to the Twins' paper...

    Now that you mention it, my mom was singing the praises of her physical therapist just tonight.
