    Oh wow! I failed to reread my post. Just look at those typos and even how I have whole words missing ... lol. To think I am a teacher. That 'propition' word for example is torturing me as it should be 'propitiation' lol.

    Bob, I hope you heard my heart in my post while at the same time laughed at my terrible iPhone typing. My thumbs move in more of an ADHD mindset than I care to admit.

    Paul, I'm about to email my friend but please forgive any delay. We decided to cut cable and internet at home and I've actually moved back to an old flip phone since that post. Lol, I'm even Facebookless lol. Im at my in laws stealing their wifi to check in only to see how things are going with our friend.

    I know there are several here who are struggling and my prayers go out to those as well.

    Well, nice to hear of you Brett. I can understand your desire to disconnect from some contemporary things.

    Regards, Will

    We are getting ready to have to raise some funds to honor Bob Bendell (BigBiscuit). As many of you know Bob is losing his battle with cancer and this may be the last thing we can do for him. These funds will go towards a college fund for his grandson Bo. Bo is 16 he is Bob's only grandchild and is Bob's pride and joy. Again this fund raiser is to honor our friend and fellow forumite during a very difficult time for him and his family. Please direct any questions you may have to @paulhilborn, @Campbellclanman, @Half/Stop, @mrknife or @r redden

    An excellent idea, Randy! I just got power back from the Sunday storm, so things are a bit chaotic, but I'll see what I can dig up to put on the exchange!

    @KBA, Brett, I never even noticed the spelling. The message was crystal clear. Thank you so much my friend. It's been far too long since we talked. I knew you were taking a hiatus though. :cool::)

    She's such a cutie Barrett. I love the pic. Made me smile.:D

    Randy, I have no words to describe my feelings for you fellas. When we talked yesterday, I was crying. Literally. My grandson Bo is my whole world. He means everything to me. I can't begin to tell you what this means for you fellas to do this for him. He just left here with my daughter and I was telling them all. My family is so touched by the kindness of strangers. I told them you guys might be a bit strange, but they are not strangers. They're family. :D

    Thank you Glenn. We also lost power during the storm. I had asked my son in law to come start up my generator, but we got it back yesterday. My daughter just got theirs turned back on today. Luckily it wasn't very cold.

    I just got a text as well as Paul and Ron also from Bob's daughter Lan and they found him unresponsive this morning and the doctors only give him a 50/50 chance of making it through the day. Please keep Bob and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

    Man Randy, like you I am heartbroken, as Randy mentioned Bob's daughter multi text us and the news is hard to accept. Please all, see my sales thread in my sig line. I want to do all that I can and know so many feel the same way.
    Love you Bob!!!
