Default Central Texas - August 9th

Let's get things firmed up.

I'll offer to host a get together at my place in Bellton on August 9th.

I'll plan on providing the food. Burgers and fixins, you bring $5.00.

Possible topics....

How to embellish a plain pen body (or correct the problems) - Learn techniques of correcting split or chipped bodies. We'll try to make this a hands-on effort like we did a couple of things last time.

Suggest more topics.

Arrive about 9-9:30, over around 3:30 or so.

Let's get things shaping up.

Rick

Rick, someday you will schedule this get together when I don't have a previous "thing",
I'll be in Indiana that weekend at a cousin reunion.
I sure do want to come up there and meet all you guys.
Next time.

Seamus and Roy,
We would love to have you come. I believe our meeting just took a different perspective.

Remember the shop has A/C. May not be bone-chilling cold but we'll be comfortable.

If Roy is going to show up I will certainly try to get off from work. I'd like to meet the guy I buy all the expensive pen making parts from
Maybe he might even bring some of that stuff along to sell

I am at a very difficult decision point at this time and need to offer an explanation.

I have planned on this meeting for August 9th for some time. However, my sister's health has taken a serious turn for the worse in just the last few days. She has gone into kidney failure and beginning to show the symptoms of other body functions beginning to shut down. She is down to 74 lbs. and her blood pressure yesterday was 62/36, barely what you would think could keep her alive. I went to visit her last weekend and saw the shell of a person I've always known.

My sister received a kidney and pancreas transplant 17 years ago. The average recipient keeps their transplant for about 15 years so she has exceeded the average She has said she does not want to go back on dialysis if she does loose this kidney as she does not want to endure the pain again.

She has signed a DNR and made it clear to me and her children she does not want to receive any medications that extends life.

Based on what her medical team is saying, we expect to have her 2-3 more weeks. This places her passing at the time of our meeting.

Based on my uncertainty of when she may pass away, I feel I need to cancel this meeting at this time. This would allow everyone time to make other plans and not be held up knowing if I may cancel at the last minute.

I was really looking forward to having everyone come as I enjoy talking to folks and getting new ideas.

If someone else would like to host the meeting, please say something and we can keep planning. I will be happy to host a meeting late this year or early next year as I'm about to enter show season.

Thanks for your understanding.
