Does anyone know what is going on with Phideaux? He usually posts multiple times a day, and we haven't seen him post anything in days. I hope everything is okay. Both he and his wife have struggled with health issues.
I spoke briefly with Phideaux yesterday. He and his wife are just really busy taking care of each other. He said he would be back soon as he can. Just keep them in your all's prayers.

I’ve been worried too @Weedygarden
I sent him a PM and heard back from him today. He is taking a break from posting. Part of it has to do with his wife's health issues. Me? I was going to find his address in my PM's and search for an obituary. He has been so regular in this group that we cannot help but wonder what is going on.

I used to follow several blogs. One blog that I followed was by a man in Alabama who supposedly had mental health issues. I read all of his blog posts for ten years. He would sometimes take a few months off from blogging. Last year, he wasn't feeling well and didn't blog much for a week or so. Then I read the comments in his last post, and someone who actually knew him shared that he had passed away. He was in his late 40's. Stuff happens and we never know when it will happen.

I totally get this Weedy. It's nice to know folks are "okay."

Glad to hear Jim is OK.

What about Venom Jockey? Does anyone know him?
If anyone knows his given name, please send it to me and I will search for him. I will let you knw what I find. Was he in Nevada? Any details about him can help me find out about him. I will be careful in what I post for the world to see, if I find anything.

I think he was down south, like Mississippi or Alabama. But I don't recall for sure. I think Jim had contact info for VJ. Knowing how VJ's health was last spring, I fear he has gone on ahead of the rest of us by now...

That rings a bell. Does anyone know his name? I have a possibility of an obituary that is him. If anyone would check it out, I will send you a PM to the link.

Thanks for reminding me of this. I have seen TMT Tactical somewhere else, but it has been a long time since I went there. I'll check it out.

Edit: I just sent TMT Tactical a PM and asked him to give us an update. It is better for someone who is in the know to update us, than someone like me who is doing an investigation.

I heard back from TMT Tactical. This is his message:

TMT Tactical
Hi Weedy,

I lost contact with VJ a while back. He was moved from the retirement community into a nursing home. His condition continued to deteriorate and he had become bed ridden. I had requested his son contact me if his condition continued to worsen but there has not been any updates. From my understanding, he had too many issues and there was no real possibility of a recovery. We were communicating on a daily basis and that shifted to weekly and then it was very hit and miss. Now it is no responses. That is all the information I have regarding VJ. I wish I could be more helpful or offered a better outlook. I think VJ is no longer with us. You are free to share what little I know but I will not be returning to the Homestead forum to post anything.

I think he may be upset with me and I don't blame him if he is. I know where he is but I'd have to leave all you other friends if I hung around there its all I can do to keep up with one forum.

Weedy please PM me the site if you don't want to post it on the open forum.

Hate hear about VJ's probable fate. But he had talked about all the issues he had and it wasn't likely he would recover as fast as he was losing weight. God bless him.
