Good to hear Jim is home and doing well. Probably just as well that the border to Canada is closed. If it was open he’d have his sights on going up to the Falls for sure. Jim, let me know if there is something you need. The postal service is still crippling along so far.

Thank you Richard for being my voice while gone. Indeed I'm home and attempting to rest and get stronger each day. A year ago we we all at the Mississippi Rally.

Thankyou for the update Great news ! Pat and Linda

Jim, Glad to see you are back at home and on-line. Missed your wit and wisdom over the last few weeks. Take one day at a time and get better/stronger at your own pace.

Good luck to his 'personal nurse'. This guy's bedside manner would be a challenge for a saint. But then he has a saint for a partner.

Words That matter

A lot of us are taking solace in your post. A deep collective relief.

Here's the thing. When your words leave your mind and body, you have no idea where they go.

If they are good thoughts they will travel far and wide. And so will the creator of those words.

If your words are shallow, they will find the minds that are shallow too. And there they will dwell. We all find our own level. Nothing wrong with that!

We all find our own level, and then echo it to the world.

Your words are beautiful, thoughtful and full of love. They have shaped the actions of many, me included. Those that know Love, recognize your words without any circumvention. Those that know Love, read these words and silently acknowledge the power of Love. I choose to bend all my power to help you heal, to be with us.

Your light is bright, it should shine for all the world to see.

Love to everyone. Only Love!

Hey Jim
When Brandy and Kirstin started talking to you about a “hook up” I bet you didn’t think it would be to a machine. Oh well, you lost your virginity, probably not the way you thought that would be either? Hang in there Jim, better days ahead. If you need someone to come out and put that pony car through it’s paces, I got a grandson about ready to learn to drive.
