    For all those who don't know Gumby and I are friends and have been for 20 years. He is doing fine, he got himself reinstated so that he could have his family back and it has been a hell of a ride, and I mean it has not been fun but he loves his family and wants to keep them in his life. I asked him the other day if he had been here and he said no not for awhile he told his wife he would not frequent this site.

    So he is alive, he is well as can be considering the circumstance !
