Yes it's me, Angelo aka Marbles Mahoney.
I dont post much anymore. Never mind why. I'm on Facebook... https://www.facebook.com/marblesmahoneys

Those of us that are getting up their in age and have health issues (I am 61 now) may find this info important, so that is only what this post is about.

I also received lots of love from many Scooterists both locally and abroad and I wanted to make a public statement of my gratitude to everyone.

I just had a Double Bypass 7 weeks ago. The only Blood Thinner I am on is a once a day Baby Aspirin. I've previously had a Heart Attack about 20 years ago and had a Stent put in back then. That's when I got the plate you see below. I had it updated this year.

My Ribcage was split open and wired back together with Stainless Steel wires. They cut open my leg and took out 2 veins and put them in my heart. Bruised ribs and all kinds of aches and pains persist. It is all normal, but it took a lot out of me.

I started riding a month after surgery with the knowledge & approval of my Doctors. At first the wind felt funny against my chest. I began leading weekly rides with my club last week. This week we are going to Fire Island to try and meet up with the NYC Vespa Club. I'm no daredevil, I just like to ride.

They only told me to avoid driving a car because of the air bag. If it went off and hit me, I would pop open like a grape. I'm a scooter nut, not a health nut, but I am living a somewhat healthier life as a result. I am taking all the Meds and as a rabid Type 2 Diabetic, I am back on Insulin.

I am also a Drummer, and I started playing this week as well. None of this is bragging, BTW. I just want to say thank you and inform whoever needs to know that determination is just as good as any medicine and just as important. Do not let the circumstances of whatever health issue is holding you back, hold you back. An object in motion stays in motion. Stay in motion and, Scoot On... Marbles Mahoney

Oh my stars-n-garters, Marbles, you've been through more than I could possibly imagine, but I can feel your good vibe from over here in Rehab. I think this is the only attitude to have, because the alternative is just too damned dark. Im slowly working my own way back to normal (or what I take as normal, anyway), and the sense that I know I'll get here helps keep me both patient and positive. I'm betting that sometime next year we'll be meeting up and swapping a few stories. Keep the good rolling going, sir.
