    Hello All,

    I have just got back from seeing the old goat and I am glad to say he is doing very well. When I arrived he was eyeing up one of the younger nurses and was offering her free membership to his new gun club, if she would agree to give him a second sponge bath.

    He is going to have surgery tomorrow to have a pacemaker fitted, however, Ian wants to know, if the pacemaker switches off half way round a course, can he switch it back on again??

    He is in great spirits and there is a chance he may even be home at the weekend.

    He asked me to pass on his best to everyone and he has promised that he will be fit to sing at the 2014 Gathering. (I will ask the doctor if we can have a remote to the pacemaker, so we can stop him from singing)

    Next update will be from the man himself.

    See you all Sunday

    Gary

    Brilliant news - but perhaps they could locate the battery somewhere in his mouth to prevent that awful noise that is the Gathering song every year. Sheer Hell.:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I hope you get to enjoy singing at many more Ian!!
