I just figured I would give an update while I had a few spare minutes.

As most of you know my Step dad passed away last month. So I have been helping my Mom since.

I am in the process of clearing out our summer beach cottage so she can sell it. and I am doing the same thing at her house. She is going to sell both and move into a great Assisted living community.

So on top of battling Lyme Disease and helping my Mom, I am working on moving myself to my Dad's house so I can help take care of him.So that means moving my shop, the Gt's and all my other treasures (junk).

So.... the GT's are on hold for awhile.

I miss coming on here everyday!!! This Forum means more to me than you could imagine and I can't wait till I get things under control so I can come back soon!!

I know I haven't met any members in person yet, but There are quiet a few of you that I feel as if we have.

Well I hope everyone is doing ok! Take care and I'll be back soon. Chris

Thanks for the update Chris. I was beginning to wonder if things were OK. We miss you here but understand that you have important family matters to deal with and they come first. Keep in touch when you can and good luck with all the moves and real estate sales etc.

Chris, sorry to hear of all your work. You are a good son to do all that for them.

Take care of yourself. It hasn't been the same without you and a few others around so much.

Keep us posted to your progress.

I was wondering where you'd been in the last little while. Sounds like you've got your
hands full. Keep your chin up, look after the things, and I hope all works out. Looking forward
to when you can join us in full force again. :thumbs:
