    To All,

    I have been absent from the baord for some months:

    Father in Law went into hospice and died.

    Mother, after a five month illness, died.

    Chaos financially.

    Started college, made dean's list in the midst of all this disaster.

    Obtained substitue teacher's certificate from State of Mo. and have began to sub-teach.

    I want to apoligize: I did not send out my Christmas cards: they are still on the shelf ready to mail...overwhelmed....hope everyone will forgive me.

    I have logged on to the board, now and then, and appreciate the discussions.

    My son bought me a 07 Kawasaki Vulcun.....nice ride.....

    I, also, promised my wife....signed a contract.....to reduce ex-JW activity: I am out of that contract now, however, will continue to be a bit "reserved" in my activities....

    If anyone is in SW MO and wants to share a cup of coffee....stop by...give me a week's notice...

    Wishing you all the best,

    Wow! You have been through a very difficult time to say the least!

    But it seems that things are kinda looking up, slowly but surely.

    Wishing you all the best...
