Checking in

Hey all. I got an email from a moderator checking in with me, making sure something didn't happen with the board that made me go away. Then AZ Geezer sent a similar one.

First, that is an example of why this board is what it is. Not super big, but sincere. Second, no one said or did anything to make me mad or anything.

Working on the '72 started to overwhelm me so I talked with my wife and girls and they all said just to take a break. They all want it done as bad as I do (especially since one is driving and another on will be driving in June). Having a brain injury where I'm still high functioning...well, I tend to wrap myself around the axle at times instead of having some type of balance with stuff.

It is humbling to know I was missed here. I think when I decided to give the truck a rest, it was everything, including the board.

If you've read this far, thank you. I have been back working on the truck, so, naturally, I have some questions. I'll post some pics of where she's at soon. Thanks again!!

I sold my '65 c10 to a fella in New Zealand... but the folks on this board are stuck with me... including you

Getting overwhelmed... it happens to all of us. Sometimes stepping away from a project is great but keep on truckin here with us. You bet we have missed ya and thanks for posting again.

Re: Checking in

Hi Tim, I guess all along I knew you were alive and well seeing some of your posts on Facebook, and just assumed that so much stuff was going on that truck stuff was being put off some. Believe me, I know how that goes!

I'm putting a new heater core in my '72 GMC so I better get to a stopping point with that and head in the house.

Glad all is well---DAC
