Title: The Lack of Melted Lugwrenches
Post by: jwhouk on 10 Nov 2017, 17:51
In case you all haven't noticed, our resident CIA Handler of Melody Powers and Lugwrench Melter has not been active for a month or so now.

I'm not sure if it's something he wants to have known, but it is entirely possible that his days of melting lugwrenches may be over. :( He's dealing with a health issue - one that will most definitely affect his return.

This thread is for well wishes for our resident Kiwi - and a few residual lugwrench meltings...

I've not posted because I didn't really know what to say, but I really really hope you beat this thing whatever it is and come back to us hale and hearty.

The latest from his cousin is that he will not be able to get back online. I have messaged her via Facebook to let her know that we're thinking of him.

I think it's fair to say that unless he has help, he won't be returning.  :cry: I don't know what it all entails in Kiwiland, but he has been declared legally blind.

I never know what to say at times like this.

I hope he's okay and I wish that he can get that help. The melted lugwrenchs were a bonus, but the real joy was the weird sense of wisdom mixed with humour. I miss that.

"weird sense of humour mixed with wisdom" sounds about right for what he brought here. And I miss that, too.

Well...
That just sucks beyond words.
There *are* ways for people who are blind to be able to interact online, but I couldn't imagine they would be an easy thing to get to grips with.


I'm wondering if it might be possible for Jeph to have some kind of script written that could post a standard ...


"welcome!"

 **melts your lug-wrench**

from his account to any new poster...??

If he can't be here physically, it might be nice to know that his legacy is being upheld.

(Goddamit... this really does fecking blow...    :cry: )
