    sign1 Laz, I was reading that letter and thinking, this guy sounds just like Buckeye, then I got to the signature and saw that it was. :mrgreen:

    CNWman, Sorry to hear that you will have to go through eye surgery again.

    Out in SW Colorado, where my daughter and family live, a lot of the farmers are raising sun flowers for the Methanol producers. Supposed to be able to get more Methanol with less water than corn. Hope it works out for them.

    Wish everyone a happy and blessed Thanksgiving day.

    Don, given that he has all postwar...pre China production, I would say it is unleaded. Given the recent news stories, I would have to say today's items are most certainly leaded.

    Anyway, I did get the dog to the vets. He looked better than he had, but still had not eaten and just not his usual self. Feel better leaving him there than home alone. Will pray that he will be alright as he is a very special dog. His name is "Gunny" after a good friend who is a Gunnery Sergeant in the USMC.

    Will be heading north of Atlanta to my sister-in-laws dark early, so I had better get to bed. Pray that everyone has a safe, good time with family and friends.
    God Bless,

    RT, we were posting about the same time. From what I am reading, he is most likely a diabetic. It may be too late for him, but I suggest he check with some wound care facilities around him. They have a procedure called "Platelet Rich Plasma" in which blood (60cc) is drawn off the patient. Is processed and returned into the wound. It is high in Growth Factors and promotes wound healing. We have seen chronic wounds that have been open for a few years actually heal within a month. I say that this may be too late as if he doesn't have the feeling in his lower legs, the neuropathy is significant and they may get to a point of doing amputations. Not the nicest thing to hear, but many folks go on to enjoy life with little problems for some time. It is progressive though.

    I will pray that he is OK and that it is just a matter of them getting his wound taken care of. He may be going for a Fem-Pop bypass which is something they may want to do right away, in which case, you would not hear from him. Routine procedure, so be concerned, but not too worried.
    God Bless,

    Wow, prayers for Jeffrey too - and for CNW... nice username. I've had a summer of ocular adventures with fixing a 'hole' in a retina; glad you're taking care of it. Hope Gunny is better when you return, Dennis.

    Starting to sl-now - combination of rain and snow - nice quite sleet - I pity anyone at O'Hare.

    The lowest I remember gas is .59 a gallon. Guess I'm young... :mrgreen:

    Hanging around keeping an eye on the boyfriend with the daughter - would rather be in the basement with the trains.

    Hello from Southeastern Colorado:thumb: This is my first post on this part of the forum. I have enjoyed reading the posts from everyone. As a way of introduction, I have not been on this forum all that long and am retired from the Department of Veterans Affairs after 39 years of working for the government. My most recent hobby is HO Trains (thanks to my eight year old grandson). I also enjoy gardening, of all types. I became interested in cactus gardening and have built several beds for cacti and succulents. I also raise Racing Homer Pigeons and enjoy woodworking as well. Nuff said for now. Wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.announce1

    That gas price for the mid-sixties sounds about right. I remeber a Gulf station just a couple of blocks from our house in Madison WI. Aahhhhh...the good ol' days...

    Hope for the best for CNWman and Jeff.

    You all have yourselves a thankful and safe Thanksgiving. We all have a lot to be thankful for.

    Floyd: Welcome! Great bunch here, and very supportive, as you can see! Very interesting hobbies! How did you get into Racing Homer Pigeons?

    Snow comming down! Dog didn't feel like going out last night with all the rain, so she woke me up at 5:00 to go out! Ran out, and locked up the breaks on the deck..."SNOW! What the??? I'm staying in..." Only to ask to go out again a few minutes later.

    Dinner with Friends, and off to other Friends for dessert! All our Family is out of State, and our youngest does not travel well.

    Have a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving everyone!

  19. Good Morning............
    Happy Thanksgiving to All....
    It is a cold, windy, 52 degrees. Started out at 61 and has been dropping. Going down to 43 today. Maybe some rain or snow.
    Today we are staying home and enjoying the peace and warmth of the house. Dinner for two.
    Maybe some train time later.
    One of the things that I am thankful for today, are all of my friends on this Forum. You are great.
    Everyone have a nice day,
