Dear Gilmer my heart goes out to you, we are about the same age and quit around the same time I think ( you just beat me to it) so I have always felt an affinity for you..

Love David

Ditto that!!

A friend beat impossible odds against cancer more than 5 years ago and is now battling another round with it. Original "life expectancy" was several months.

He's approached it through three-pillars of support: chemo, orthomolecular medicine and spiritually. He gives most of the credit of healing to the spiritual aspect.

Gilmer, I'm glad you're here.

I'm sorry you're going through this.

Thank you guys so much for your counsel and encouragement.

Thank you for divulging your real name, David! Mine is Kathy.

I feel an affinity for you, too, because you’re the wittiest guy on Weekenders! You never fall to bring us a smile!

Is there anything non geographically feasible that would give you a chance?

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Dee. It’s still a lot for me to take in, too (even though I’ve been repeating it over and over again all day between here and emails!).

Thank you Willow! What a kind and loving post!

Gilly, I am soory- but you are mandated to report your s-i-l for beard abuse.
When, oh when will the bearded truly have the same rights as baldies? Perhaps the Ghost of Bearded Past was giving him a little, just a little reminder as to the consequences in bearder abuse.

Support to you...as the Floyd says..'Have a cigar'.
