      There were photos of him up on FB with that big ol' Canadian grin on FB. (11/23)

      Apparently he's home and doing well.

            Bob is still alive!

            The surgery went really well. Out of the surgery center here in the Woodlands within 20hrs. Neck is feeling amazing... tight but no more nerve pain. Worst part is the swelling pushing against my throat. Makes swallowing really tough. Much better today, but I've been on a mostly liquid diet for the last 5 days.

            Hoping to get back to the shop Tuesday, but I'm still picking at emails and working on new stuff n' things. The ALVIN 3D files were released this morning, and I'm working on 1:144 Ohio right now...

              Good news, Bob. Hey Steve, that ALVIN should be right up your alley.

                    What to you tell a guy in the Air Force with two black eyes? Nothing, you’ve already told him twice. My dad was a Marine and two uncles were in the Air Force. Dad always seemed to win in their little drinking parties at home.

                        You can always tell a Marine, but you can't tell him much! ;)
