Default The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

Hello again all Ford Barners! No I didn’t fall into a black hole, just been really busy this last year with the wife having some health issues, the whole Covid mess, the end of the world as we know it, you know that kind of stuff.
I have still been working on old Fords, but not as much as I would like to. Our daughter is here living with us now helping out. She has been wonderful. The wife is doing a little better but tires out easily.
Sorry for the hiatus, and I hope to be back here more often.
I hope all of you have been well!
Oh and I quit drinking last May, boy that sure changed my life drastically!
God Bless,
Ralph

Last year, Covid was great for me. All of the “typical obligations” didn’t happen and I think I accomplished more than in the two or three years previous.

I knew one of the '35 3w guys was MIA here, but just couldn't remember who it was
I'm hoping things get better soon for your wife, you, and your family.

Congratulations on quitting drinking last May... for many it's impossible without divine intervention... and He is faithful to always be there for you... blessings to you and your wife. May she get stronger every day and may you stay strong every day.
