    I realize this is only 3 months dead, but what are the odds he !@#$ed up that really nice stamped concrete patio and his wife killed him and buried him deep down on the back 40?

    Just sayin'...

    Actually, still barely alive. However covid and delta virus has most of my attention these days… :(
     
  3. Glad you are still turf side instead of dirt side. Thanks for all you and the rest of the medical professionals are doing to keep people alive during these crazy times.

    Thank you. Had an eight year old boy with covid pneumonia today… family in disbelief like it’s some Fukin boogeyman that doesn’t exist… I admitted him to icu no beds… goddam nightmare. All I can think of is him and my 34’. I’m so depressed. It’s just sitting there like he is in his hospital bed…

    I appreciate that. I’m just trying to focus on my family. But this won’t be better for a while unfortunately.

    You're fighting the good fight on 2 fronts and I appreciate them both. A very entertaining thread so far. I'm looking forward to seeing the body come together. Having made one coupe out of a sedan, I can say anything will fit anything with enough cutting, shaping and welding.

    Hey buddy, I missed this thread! It looks like a great one!

    Hang in there, I know it's been a rough couple years. I'm sure the end seems pretty far off still out your way too but I sincerely hope you can get back to taking some joy in your life soon.
