Pierre will be back soon!

[jbox]Pierre had an operation to resurface a hip joint early in the new year and is currently recovering at home. We should see him back in action after Easter. Early indications are he does not make a good patient and Linda will be pleased to see him back on the piste as soon as possible![/jbox]
