Default Bubba's Ignition

Has anyone heard how Jim is doing? I know he is going though dialysis now and
has been dealing with other health issues.

I've been trying to contact him for several weeks with no response. I need to get ahold of him soon.

Thanks

I too tried to contact Jim twice but no reply back. I imagine he has all he needs on his plate right about now so I will not bother him anymore.

As you probably know, Jim handed over the Chevy dist. conversions to Charlie NY. Charlie just did a 21A for me, as I felt Jim was backed up with the health issues. I wish him well.

Bubba, keep well. I know from my dialysis treatments what you are going through. Just bear with it, there is no good alternative.

As we age this old body seems to get a bit frail... In my case it is rooted in poor preventive maintenance in my youth. The old consequences for poor choices reality.
Jim you are a blessing to us all and your passion and commitment to our hobby has not gone unnoticed. Thank You!
It is my prayer that God will touch you with the warmth of His love, give you His strength as you press on and fill you with His Joy throughout the adventure.
Thanks for the update Brother... Chap

Jim, I broke my elbow falling off a ladder....definitely the humerus bone....and not funny at all. Looks as if you've avoided a cast.


Falls are a terrible thing. Take care of yourself and get better as soon as you're able.


Regards....Dick.
