Howsabout a little love for deepsand?

He was diagnosed in November of last year with "aggressive cancer of the jaw involving both gum and tongue; additionally, there may be metastatic involvement of a lymph node." He has since completed a full course of radiation and chemotherapy which ended in January. Results of a recent scan not yet in. I'll report as soon as I know anything.

Wishing him very well, and adding him to my prayers.

The disappearance of so many I've come to know and love here is disheartening. Hence, I suppose, my absence of late. The friendships I've formed here are quite possibly the most meaningful of my life. I've learned a lot from so very many of you.

Be well with yourselves. *heart emoticon here*

I've not been on much either.

But Deep goes back a long time, and added many interesting perspectives to the debate. He certainly had no fear of taking on sacred cows or cowboys.

His illness reminds me of what Roger Ebert went through.

I will remember him in my prayers.

Love, hugs and prayers, Sandy.

Take VERY good care of yourself.

See? You're one of the people that can get me back here!

Admittedly, I had some help *finding the darn discussion* !!!

Doing ok!

Still running around like a lunatic, no change there, then!

Ma and Pa are becoming increasingly frail, and I'm having to spend a lot more time with them. I don't mind that, but Ma keeps forgetting I have to work for a living!!

Grandson is 11 next month.... who pinched the last 11 years?! Can't believe it.... He's spending the weekend with us, in advance of three nights away at camp next month. No doubt by then, Gramps will have shown him how to strip and engine, wire up a switch panel or something like that - they're inseparable!

How are you? How are the family? I must say, it's awfully quiet around here now. Gone are the days when the Friday Yuk ran to 60+ posts, and Dawg, JD and I, along with Scummie <sigh> OM <nuther sigh> Boxy and you would run riot and sometimes run into my Saturdays, too. Ah, the good old days.... Do you ever hear from any of the old gang?

It's been quiet everywhere

When we lost Scummy and OM, it took a lot out of the community, then the last site 'upgrade' knocked the supports out from under what was left. There are still a few of us around, but it's like being in a football stadium the morning after the game...
