no excuses just sorry
Hey yall, well im not dead and im not trying to rip anyone off. sorry richard its taken so long to get back here let me explain my reasoning behind the delay: my wifes parents live about 26 hours away from where i live in a little one horse town.well her father passed away at a good age of 79, great guy he really was. but prior to that he was doing really bad in the hospital so we ran up there to visit him and we knew it was going to be anyday. the day we got back home was the day he passed away. so we went back up for the funeral, helped her mom out with what we could and left, then we just got back home again and we have some friends with a little 18 month old daughter that was murdered by her babysitter. so then we were helping them, i really feel for them, and they really did lose their world. then last but not least my brother and a buddy went out for a party, they felt alright to drive but my brother had been working all week so he decided to sleep all the way home instead and let his best friend drive, dont know the exact details yet but they hit a parked semi on the shoulder of the highway in his 78 ford pickup. my brother was airlifted to calgary because they had found he had broken 2 vertebrae in his neck and some was putting pressure on his spinal cord which is causing his arms to feel like they are burning. he went in for surgery lastnight at 8 pm, came out at 3 am this morning with good results. one vertebra was replace with a piece of his pelvic bone and one is able to heal but he has to wear a halo for 3 months. he should be back to my normal little brother. it was very hard for me seeing him in pain, my brothers the type to never be scared or ever see him cry, well this was doing both to him. im not making excuses as to why i didnt send richard the guage, to put it simply i forgot all about it and it never crossed my mind. not an excuse just me being honest. and i am sorry. so richard sorry about having you worried and worked up and thanks for giving me the botd. post office will be open tomorrow and i will get right onto sending it too you.
