It's quite a while since I ended our friendship because of his insistence to change me to his religious beliefs. At that time he had been in rehab to get off the prescription morphine drugs. His health was very poor and because of that he was unable to make sawdust and so reckoned that he had nothing to post about. I too hope that he hasn't gone to that great workshop in the sky.

Sorry to hear that, Harry.

He is from down here in texas. I was wondering about him the other day. I have not heard anything from him in a long time. The last thing I heard from him was that he needed to get better before he started emailing and posting again. I think that was some time in June.

Mr. Bowen is doing as well as can be expected. Both he and his wife have health issues that make life a bit more difficult that most of us could appreciate. Jerry's vision is probably the one thing that causes him the most frustration. Greatly limiting his time spent online. I last spoke with Jerry about a month ago and despite having to deal with multiple health issues, the man maintains a superior attitude and outlook on life because of his religious beliefs.

Thank you for the update Bill . I do recall the story about his childhood and getting hit hard with the handle of a well , thus impeding his vision .
Glad to hear heís hanging in there
