Never made it to a crispin, pork roast, or southern sawing event ,at least one was sorta to in the bucket of lists.
Look forward to the far side,gallery style, as you all roll in.
 I made my peace with the world, I have lived in the golden years on the 3rd rock from the sun right conditions for life as we know it ,sadly at the end of the common sense era. I do have a feeling of a rat fleeing a sinking ship in this regard.
I have plenty of pain meds and am hoping to escape the hospital to hang out at home where I can gaze over the small forest we,my wife and I, have planted ,and just now coming milling maturity.( You know the story of planting trees under whose shade you may not sit)  I have been relaxed enough to sit and gaze, so I consider I have done well. If it can be done I hope to repose there too.
Cheers

John, sincerely thank you for letting us know...it sounds like you've got your chin up. I guess that's about as good as any of us can do, I guess I'll find out when it's my turn. I'm thankful that I've been able to know you in some small way through the Forum. I think you may be right about a rat fleeing a sinking ship. Godspeed my friend.

Sorry to hear that news..

Been thinking about your news since I read the post yesterday and I just wanted to say thanks for sharing and I'll be thinking about the impact each of us has had on each other and the greater sawmilling community. 

For the last 10 years or so this forum (the whole site) has been a place for me to drop in and learn, unwind and make sense of things.. I don't post tons because I am still learning and partly because I sold my manual mill a few years back. 

I did just step up and bought a 2013 LT 40 HD so I have been squirrelling away some pics to start a new thread. 

These are indeed crazy days and I appreciate anyone that makes me stop and take stock of things.

Kind regards,

Morgan

I lost my GPA John to cancer last month.. I feel for you and your family.  Your dignity is well respected sir, my hope is to meet you and shake your hand for facing this with the courage and dignity you demonstrate, as we meet Jesus.  God speed friend!

Dang.  I'm new here and don't know you, but I'm so sorry.  But I would hope that in the same situation I could go out the same way with the same class and dignity.  Wish I had the chance to get to know you.  May your final days be filled with peace and joy.
