Ack, I hope so too.

My first awareness of Bob Jenkins was playing NASCAR 98 on the Sega Saturn, which was way before I ever saw NASCAR on the TV. Wishing him a full recovery.

Hopes and prayers for him to recover. He has beaten cancer once so hopefully he can do it again. He certainly has the positive attitude needed. :fingers: :fingers:
