Yea... I've been wondering about him recently. He's active on AC, but hasn't even logged on here in 8 months.
Unusual for a guy with 11,000 posts to "walk away" without a word.

Yeah, it is sad.  I found him to be knowledgeable and kind.

(Sorry for delay, I was in Chicago).
Yea, it's none of my business, and since he's posting on AC, then obviously he's fine.
Unlike LoneWolf that fell off the face of the earth for a few years before someone reported they talked to him and he is indeed alive and well.

"knowledgeable and kind"... what a fine combination.  As I get older I find the second to be more important than the first.

I just spent three days listening to "motivational speakers", and what it all boils down to, is people don't want you to be an ass to them.

Not really a "joke", but the comments are funny.
So, long story short.... Monday I discovered a snake in my truck while i was driving.
Once I identified it as non venomous, I knew no one would believe me, so I filmed a couple minutes of it.
"Just for grins", and in the interest of showing it to my friends,  it turns out that a mere five days later, the video has 1.2 million views, and I have a one year contract with a marketing company to sell it around the world.  :rofl:

Not my average Monday, to say the least.

If you're interested, here's the Facebook link:
https://www.facebook.com/100015673770414/videos/531549654044156/

and here's the link to the marketing company Youtube link:
https://youtu.be/A-TxF6JYQTY

The YouTube link actually contains three videos, the Facebook is only one.
The marketing company wanted everything I had, so there's "part 2" and "Part 3" of the snake.

Like Woody (from Toy Story) would say, "There's a snake in my boot!"... In your case, "There's a snake in my truck!"

Enjoy your 15 minutes!

When I was a kid, my brother and I put a rubber snake under the brake pedal of Dad's car. 
Dad failed to see the humor, pulled the car over, and put the belt to our butts.  Lesson learned.
