You've given me the scare of my life. What would we do without you? I'm so glad to read that all has gone well eventually. Take good care of yourself and take even better care of Wendy. She's an angel.
Who else is gonna damn the torpedoes full speed ahead! Stay well.
Hi, Asher. I dropped in this morning and was surprised to hear of your close call. Good work! Keep it up, but with an extra amount of scrutiny. I'm sorry that my daughter didn't take the opportunity to meet you when she came through a summer back, but she is now working for all of us an an unnamed Israeli defense organization, going toe to toe against Iranian hackers. (That's only speculation, we know nothing about what she now does.) Hope to get a chance to see you one of these days. Still photographing, also working on regaining my instrument pilot competency after many years on the ground.
Thank you so much for all that.Asher, it confuses me somewhat that we don't seem to gather many new members.
And I'm always pleased to see old faces dropping in (I can say that now, I've been around for 8 years now...almost a local).
I have to admit there are times when I get a little disappointed, mostly due to the fact that I'm often active when the rest of the world is asleep and I crave a bit of real time back and forth and banter.
Sometimes I wonder why I post images here at all but it is my place, my only place and I know that the members here are all intelligent people and understand where each other's motivations stem from for the most part.
It's a great Tour bus as you describe it and the views are unbelievably good. When I am literally in tour buses (rarely, I like to travel to my own rhythm), I do keep a sly eye on the driver... more than once I've had to give them a yip to avoid catastrophe. You're still doing fine old boy.
Keep on pointing out points of interest as well as throwing in a slice of local knowledge and good humour.
Jim,Asher, sorry for the late comment, I haven't visited for a while and was glad to read the happy ending to this scary story. My dad went through the same thing (not the neglect in the hospital) with stents giving him a new lease on life. Sounds like you have many happy years ahead thanks to your determined wife.
I also appreciate your life philosophy, which you embody in this web site and your work on it. Thanks for such a great example.
