well I'm glad he liked the tennis and all my sarcasm, I think most people play me for the laughs actually. Ahhhh, I just love the sport what can I say. Ok on the dampener, I can get that from you when we hit. I might take advantage of the crappy weather, I'm looking at 5 broken racquets in front of me right now that need to be strung and regripped, good day for it. Talk to ya soon.

Hi Ben,
I am already playing on both Tuesday and Wednesday night, which I do every week actually. We'll work something out sooner or later. I literally have a calendar on the side of my fridge just for tennis I play so much, as well as a calendar for mowing 7 lawns besides working full time, so my schedule is very busy. Some other time perhaps.

Hey Ben,
How are ya? Sounds good to me. What hours do you work? I live in Bolingbrook but work in Oak Brook. I work from 7 -3:30, I could bring my tennis gear to work one day and meet you after work if that time is something that works for you, other wise we can figure something else out.
