A "thank you" is expected, Amos. Of course, it can wait until you return to good physical health. No one in the Legion comments upon mental health.

Now, you take Sandy. He can run ten miles in less than seventy minutes while juggling two full-grown oxen and a full length of railroad rail. He can do push-ups so fast his clothes ignite and keep that up all day, every day, for a week. Physical health? He's always surrounded by a pile of dead microbes and viruses that reach clear to his knees. If his whiskey doesn't contain cyanide and strychnine he thinks it's water. And he's ninety-six years old!

But mental health? Well, I can't go into it, not on a fellow Legionnaire, but suffice to say that he does...things...with habanero jello, Certain Mechanical Devices, and himself on a small sailboat that have been presented as papers at the International Association of Clinical Psychologists of Really Aberrant Uncurable Behaviors (IACPRAUB). I can give you his "study name": Patient Fargone.

So get well and you can send the thank-you donation (small denomination, used, non-sequentially serially numbered, unmarked US dollars only, please, and the more the better) to me and I'll see that the Legion gets it.
