Hi Everyone,

I just visited Tony at St. Joe’s. He’s got cancer, probably in the lungs, though it’s not certain if it’s in one lung or two — or even which lung. While I was there, the doctors took him for an x-ray, but I don’t know the results, — if any. In addition, he’s got heart problems, and an ugly hernia protruding from his upper abdomen. The three photos above is what he looked like at about 230pm today.

He seemed depressed and feared that they might release him.

Tony wants to thank Gwen and Cathy for coming to visit; the bananas were yummy.

More when I know.

“There’s that lady I was telling you about, the one that’s started leaving me those bananas. She’s a great one if you ask me.”

It’s Christmas

“Phil, sorry for calling so late. I know you got the family. Do you have twenty bucks that you could lend me?  You know I wouldn’t phone you otherwise but they say it’s going down to minus 17 tonight. And I’ve gotta get a bed.”

PHILIP
“OK. Whatever. You’ll get it back to me tomorrow? Never mind. It’s Christmas. Come over.”

TONY
“Five minutes. I’ll be over in five minutes.”

PHILIP
“Where are you?”

TONY
“On Ronces. You know, around Geoffrey. I’ll be there in five minutes.”

PHILIP
“OK, five minutes. I’ve got some bananas for you here I think. Maybe something else too. I’ll  look.”

TONY
“I’ll be there in five minutes.”

PHILIP
“OK, bye.”

TONY
“Bye.”
