    Default Saying Hello...

    Hey WRF,

    Been wanting to say hello. Hope you are well and life has treated you well in these trying times. No excuses here for being absent. Life got at me hard in 2019-2020 with Covid taking my Job and having to start over on a new role for a Philadelphia company that has me working 70+ hours a week. Mom’s Alzheimer’s has been raging and taking her slowly. Dad is having a hard time so when I am not working I take the weekends to assist. Sad and slow goodbye.

    I have been doing blankets for Veterans on Jeep Facebook Page I founded called Seven Slots Posse which has been a true blessing to honor our heroes. Since last March I have given out about 350 blankets. Some pics attached of recent Vets honored. I get joy and they get thanks.

    I miss the hobby terribly. Miss the fellowship here and have not bought a piece of Militaria since 2019. I have sold 12-15 items in the past year which was hard. Trying to help the parents a bit with the sales. My collection is still up at I am sorry I have not been an active member but wanted you guys to know you still are and always be the best. I hope to get active again and try to contribute someday. Seasons of life change but hoping my collecting days are not too far off again. The pieces I have sold have went to good caretakers who can enjoy them. In the end we can’t take it with us. Thank you for always being a great collecting community. Rossi

    I miss your participation on the forum.

    Kirk, Was just thinking of you this weekend and was meaning to reach out.

    I know the difficulty of that terrible disease having lost my own mother in 2020, partially from this.

    Family first. Which I know for you is paramount.

    But if you do get to Philly, have Larry drive you a few hours north to NY and stop by for a visit. He knows the way

    Hope to see you around more often. Looking forward to having you back.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    Great to see hear from you Kirk. I have often thought of you when on the forum and wondered how life was treating you! Sounds like a very hard time but I am sure there is light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.

    Take care and all the best,
