I use to spend many an hour on chat night years ago here, haven't thought about it in ages
I see an old friend post here, Billy Mac, LtNS for sure
David, I am well pleased to see you here. I occasionally lurk and and have seen you post from time to time. I cannot tell you how saddened I was to see your situation had deteriorated. I did not make any comment as I seemed to be saying the same thing over and over. If I remember rightly you disposed of the S.S.Riley.
I just had a search and pulled a a post from April 2010 ----- it shows how long you have battled setback after setback.David,
I have just caught up with your post and all I can say is "bloody hell!!". Sometimes some forget that you expressed your fears of the effect of radiation well before the event ........ fears well founded given your previous experiences. As you say, nobody did anything wrong, it is just the way your body reacts to the bombardment. What I admire is in the midst of all this adversity and pain you still do not really ***** or moan about your predicament. In spite of all your personal setbacks and grief you always take the time and effort to welcome all newcomers and give them much needed encouragement, support and reassurance ............ Despite your objections to it being said you are my friend, a man among men and we all here on this forum could learn much from your attitude and unselfishness. I salute you, ol' mate and anxiously await the day when the tide finally turns for you.
Say hello to the red-headed vixen for me and I'll see you on chat today.
BillHello Billy, my good Aussie mate. Was hoping you would check in soon. BTW, I just gave the red headed vixen your message, and she said hello back along with a "wink wink". Do you two know something I don't know? lol.
I refuse to take my troubles out on anyone here. And want to make sure each new brother, or sister speaking for their men, know that we are all here to care, and to listen, and to give advice the best we are qualified to do. I learned a long time ago in life, that if you are in a bad way, the best way to help yourself is to help others. And I really believe that.
Did too much today: now paying the pain price this evening. Spent 3 hours doing consulting work with my former boss, then came home and spent almost 2 hours emptying, cleaning, and filling our hot tub (spa), even though I can't use it due to my catheter, and then did house work and made home made pizza for the wife when she got home.

And another one from July 2012Just for you David on your 60th:
So now you’ve turned sixty and think that you’re old
You’re falling to bits or so we’ve been told,
Look at the wrinkles and the hairless bald head
Life has wrought changes, youth has now fled,
But all is not lost as you look at your gains
Children who love you ease all of life’s pains,
And there at your side when there’s trouble and strife
Is the redheaded vixen, your darling sweet wife.
Happy birthday me ol' china
Time passes so quickly and it just is not fair that your struggle has been so difficult. But hope springs eternal.
