    a well meant "Ditto that" from The Netherlands ... hang in there Dave !!

    Absolutely heartbroken to hear this news. 44 years of love, understanding, and growing a loving family produces rich meaningful memories that I hope will maintain you through this incredible hardship. Hold your family and friends, whether near or far, close to you. They will most certainly be holding you in their hearts.

    Any news on Clipper. I am hoping he has been recovering well. Just curious if anyone has communicated with him recently.

    I've messaged him a couple of times. He has taken a hard blow losing his wife and then getting Covid. He's on the mend and home. His life has been turned upside down and will take some time to have any normalcy. He's working part time but considering retiring. Hopefully in the near future we'll see him here again.

    Thanks for the update Peter. Hope he continues to heal. We will keep him in our prayers.

    I have been in touch with Dave and he has been spending time trying to work out what life now means. He has been dabbling in a bit of aero modelling and also putting some time in working on some WofG projects but those are his stories to tell when he eventually rejoins us all.

    I propose that, instead of individually communicating with him I start a thread called ’G’day Clipper’ and we use that post well wishes etc to him.

    Thanks Teaticket. We are always thinking of him and praying for his recovery and return.

    An excellent idea Wayne.
    I could stick it for you if that would help to keep it in the public eye.
    Let me know by PM if you wish me to do that when you establish it.

    Sounds like a good idea to me too.

    Top idea!

    I laugh in the face of danger - then I hide until it goes away!
