Chemo will be postponed for at least half-a-year while damage heals, blood thinners work, and a new port can finally be installed for 6 more months of chemo...

Needless to say, I need at least one, if not three, individuals willing to step up and take over for me until I am healed and back on chemo, or at least able to see beyond tomorrow. Please let me know via either a PM or a post to this thread if you wish to take over for me and I will (hopefully remember to) make sure that the appropriate WG Staff is informed of the unanticipated, and hopefully temporary, changing of the judge(s).

I will miss interacting with everyone here, but my priority must be to heal before I can continue to play. If I don't heal ... well, the Doc says I may not stick around too long.

Dave Stiles
Let's continue praying for Dave Stiles.

Good question.

Oh, wow, so sorry to hear of this turn of events for Dave. He absolutely has his hands full and must use all the energy he can muster to heal his body. Wish there were something we could do to help. Get yourself well, Dave. We'll be here when can come and play with us again...

Very well stated, Sage. I was at a loss as to how to express what I was feeling. You said it better than I could havee.

Yes, Dave...we will be here when you can come back...and you better believe we'll be celebrating your return.

Taken any year. It's just a new "Post your bird pix" thread. The other thread was getting quite long, so I thought we'd start on a new thread.

Cirsium, is there some way to embed links to previous threads of a same subject, so they would show on the current page? Maybe at the bottom?

Sage-

re: auto referencing previous threads.

Not that I know of. I'll check for new vB hacks. Let's see if there's anything new that might work.

Thanks for sharing that about Dave W.G.
I noticed he hadn't been to the site since July.... and I've been wondering how he's been doing. He's in my prayers.....

Good question Sage....That would be a nice addition. A direct route instead of typing the subject into the search box above. Something that gets you to the appropriate *page* instead of scanning thread by thread, page by page for the matching topic.
