Long Time: News, Invite & Info

Recommended Posts

*

Yep, I know it has been a while since I last visited, over 5 months, in fact. The road trips I had planned were quickly destroyed, thanks to new health issues & unexpected expenses which wiped out my built-up savings. The health issues had stabilized, more or less, thanks in part to Medicaid finally approving specialists, but then a scare about a speck in my lung being cancerous put me back on edge.


I hope to get health issues & finances situated enough so I can do my Road Trips & Working plans sometime later this year or early next year. Meantime, I have been doing (& chronicling on my website) some day exploratory road trips with my 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis LS in the northern IL area to drive roads I have never seen, the latest excursion of which happened Tuesday, 07/11/2017, in conjunction with a drive to Moline IL to meet a friend in person for the 1st time. I posted a writeup & pics here:




Otherwise, life has been mostly good, & I made some changes (with more on the way) to my website [which combines a love of vintage vehicles & congenital heart issue awareness with several different pages & features], including a brand new Business Card.

I love showcasing mom'n'pop style places, described by some as the backbone of our society. When we help others succeed, we succeed. To that end, I launched a revised OC,SH NETWORK with 2 tiers of membership: LTD R/T SS & HEARTLAND. Check it out:
