Get Well Parker!

My California bud, Robert aka Parker is getting some overdue surgery on his knee. Back at the Fiery Food Show in Albuddahquerque we had a group of chileheads out for lunch on the last day of the show. While we were waiting on the food to arrive, suddenly without warning Parker hits the floor of the restaurant writhing in pain. He tells us his knee had locked again, and that he had to reposition it to get it to pop back into place. It seems that this is something that happens to him from time to time. It was tough as hell to watch him go through this torturous episode. He struggled there, and we as a group were helpless to help. It took him at least 5 minutes before he could get his knee back in place. Once that was done, it was like nothing had happened. No lingering pain at all. Yet, by the look on his face, it had to hurt a lot while the knee was popped out.

After going through one too many episodes, Parker finally decided to get it fixed. Technology as it is, should bring him back to form in a real short time. He will have a little bit of rehab along the way, but he will be better for it. His surgery takes place at noon pst today, so let us all wish him our best and a speedy recovery. He will want to be back on the skateboard asap. :wheelchair:

Thanks again to Sean for drawing up another awesome cartoon! I was going to hold this out to the October Fireside Chat, but I figure the cartoon fit the situation, and cheer our chilehead brother up.

    Yeahhhhh….under normal circumstances this would wait ’til the beginning of next month, but when I was told about Parker’s predicament, naturally I went to work on it right away! :mrgreen:

    And before anybody has the chance to ask, I can easily explain the brightly colored striped shirt that Parker’s wearing….simply put, do y’all know how freakin’ hard it is to draw a tie-dyed shirt?? LMAO!

    Hope you have a speedy recovery, Parker! :skateboard:

    I just assumed it represented his gayness.

    Thanks you guys!

    Buddah if I remember correctly it was closer to 15 minutes it was out in New Mexico.(I wonder if anyone else in the restaurant noticed?) That was really the straw that broke the camels back. It’s dislocated maybe 3-4 times since then and once it took me 45 minutes to get it back in…..YOUCH.

    Anyway, it’s done and now I have the fun part….rehab. :wheelchair:

    Sean love the cartoon and Thomas I’m only gay on you bud.

    Although the incident at the restaurant was very interesting, I’m glad you got your leg fixed! Next time we’ll be able to have a nice relaxing lunch!
    Good Luck with rehab!
    BTW – I’ll be out in Tucson, AZ the next few months, let me know if you end up down that way.

    Interesting isn’t one of the words that comes to mind when I think of “the incident” lol

    Get well soon, Parker. I guess next time we have lunch in Albuquerque, you won’t be scaring the living bejezus out of me by crashing to the floor. 🙂

    Hey, you told me you were only gay on me!
    I assume the doctors have told you to try and stay off of them for a while now?
    Good luck with the surgery and get back on the board real soon!

    Glad you love the drawing! It was just another one of those moments where Buddah gave me a few ideas to keep in mind & play with, so I could come up with another masterpiece! :mrgreen:

    Uh oh! Do I sense some jealousy here? LOL!
