Today’s update- Mom has improved enough physically to be moved to a memory care facility. I’m dreading her reaction to this, but I realize that the Doctors are right- she’s way to much to handle at home and not appropriate for assisted living.

I don’t think I mentioned this before, but Carol’s step-dad has terminal cancer. He is having an emergency surgery right now, and we are flying out tomorrow morning early to visit him for probably the last time. He has outlived the Doctors projections by 2 1/2 years. Going to be a rough weekend.

Lastly, last night I sold the Wagoneer that I thought was going to be the keeper. I originally had a restorer want it but he was in Italy and the overall costs went too high for what it was. So, it ended up going to a guy who just got back from SEMA. He is going to put it on a shortened Dodge chassis, complete with huge running gear and a high HP Cummins diesel. Not what I had imagined but it’s one down, 4 to go...

Randy,
sorry to hear everything that is going on. I some how missed this thread. I will be thinking about you and your family and keep you in my prayers.
Sounds like you have a good plan and hope it all works out. Drew (7jeeps7kings)

I’m located just outside Charlotte NC and am currently building a house down on the coast. Therefore we will be making numerous trips over the next 6 months for check-ins etc. If there’s anything I can help with concerning your thoughts of relocation let me know. Questions about the various beaches, anything. Even if you need storage for some of your Jeeps let me know.

thinking about y’all.

I was out working on the Scrambler when my wife just came in with some bad news. The colon perforation that necessitated my stepdad’s surgery had spread so much infection through his system that there was no way to knock it out. The doctors thought they had it under control, but it came back with a vengeance and there is no way to undo the damage done. They just took him off life support and he will be gone within days. At least he won’t be suffering any more.
