I back. (barely)

Sorry Guy's.....I've had an eventful summer. Some good, most bad.
Lets start off with June. While trying to show a Hemi where the bear shit in the buckwheat, Henry threw a transmission. Locked up at about 4000 rpm. It Twisted the driveshaft and split the tailstock. Thanx to Mr. Transmission Guelph, who had me back on the road in just under 4 grand.

July; I spent 2 weeks in Nunivik. That was interesting to say the least. I was up there on business, but I did get a rental and see some of the beauty.

Aug; Dawn and I were blessed with Twin Grandsons. That was a true event and we are still stoked. But, 2 days after, I suffered a stroke. I was released from the Hospital just yesterday. My left side is a problem and I'm still having problems speeking. My short term memory is bad, and my short term memory is bad.
It's going to take me a while to be moving about The doc took my licence. I don't expect to get that back soon. The hospital has arranged for me to be picked up for therapy. I'm sure I will bounce back, Better than ever (I hope)

Getting old isn't all it's cut out to be.
Once I get back on my foot. I will arrange some G2G's and some coffee meets.

Again Sorry for my absents

Well holy shit Gerry, thats a summer and a half alrighty, sorry to hear the bad, congrats on the good, hope to catch up with you for a coffee soon.

My brother has spent about 25 years up north, anywhere from Arctic Bay to Iqualuit.

I should have gone to visit him back in the day when I was single and could travel a little easier. Post pics if you got 'em.

Sorry to hear about Henry, main thing is no one got hurt, except for your wallet, $4g ouch. Any upgrades on the re-build ?

Good to see you back.

Welcome back Gerry. I was beginning to wonder. Almost sent you a pm last month just to check up on you but just thought you were having a very busy summer, which by the sounds of things you did. Things have been tough on you the past few years but you've beat the other problems and I am sure things will work out well with this. Stay upbeat, stay active, and do what you're told! We will all be pulling for you.
Take care Bud

Such is life. Just passing through.
