     I want to take this opportunity to thank my fans from all over the world for their well wishes during my knee surgery. A couple of weeks ago I was invited to visit The Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C.  I got to see and meet the real heroes of the free world, who, without knowing it, gave me more than enough courage to have total knee replacement surgery.
