    I'm ok but the smoke has been terrible.
    My eyes haven't stopped watering.

    All this wouldn't have happened if they - the government, had a half way decent plan of controlled burns to remove fuel loads.
    Our enviornement, our landscape - plants and animals have adapted to fire.
    They're life cycles NEED fire.
    So, when the country isn't burnt every second season you get these massive destructive wildfires.
    This will continue to happen until the powers that be come to terms with
    the very nature of the land they govern and do what the Aboriginals have done
    for centuries.

    Glad to hear you are ok @Tank-Girl.

    You are right about back burning the under brush regularly and then you and all of us wouldn't get the these massive wildfires. The greenies have a lot to do with it protesting about everything I think. Wonder how long it will take the governments to realise how stupid they are on this subject, if ever.

    Y'all sound like us. Save the forest! Save the spotted owl! That's all fine and dandy until a fire gets sparked, then the owls are toast, along with everything else!

    I noticed him is why I tagged him in post above. I sure hope he is not holding back news because it is bad. I hope Gump went back to his wife or something like that.

    I'd love to have Jim post some more. And the woods do need to be better managed so those huge fires are not able to build so large. Glad to hear that @Tank-Girl and others are okay.

    Withholding no news is also withholding news. If Jim doesn't know then eh should answer us and say so.
    Phildeaux why do you not reply to us who are concerned?
    Yet you hang around and like certain post and don't comment. :confused:

    I just heard from Phideaux. He said to say hi to everyone and that he'd be around to play when things slowed down. He reports that all are doing well, at least as well as age allows.

    That's one of the good things to come out of the forest fire we had here in 2013, it mostly burned the under brush in the forests above us which will reduce the probability of fires in the area for a number of years to come.

    Gumpy is still alive, Gumpy is tied up with life issues, and some health issues.
    But he is OK. We taiked today while he is at doctors office...:(

    Thought I'd stop in to try and clear our names ...not just hanging around "liking" posts.
    Life issues here also.
    Just got cleared yesterday for bilateral knee replacement.


    Not witholding no news either.o_O

    :rolleyes:

    Thank you ...my long time friend.

    Merry Christmas to all my friends here .

    First off I do hope all is well with both of you and you come out fine on the knee surgery and Gump is ok too.
    But don't put this on me and play Mr Victim here. :rolleyes:

    You did ignore all of us for quite awhile and you did come online and like post while ignoring your friends pleas for information on a friend here we were all worried about.

    So don't zoom your frustration's in on me Phildeax.


    Then why did he do it? :confused:

    Merry Christmas Jim! When the knees get cut you'll have plenty of time to catch up on your books, TV, and UM...internet. Good luck and heal quickly.

    Merry Christmas Jim and Gumpy
    Be sure to do your exercises with the knee surgery.
    Speaking from experience had my first one done this last July.
    Be sure to walk too.
    Make you walk up some gentle hills works different muscles.
    Walking in squat position zig zag pattern also works different muscle groups.
    Best wishes on the knee replacement.
    Tentatively doing my second knee in Feb.
