Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

I want to wish a heartfelt thanks to all of my Cyber-Brothers out here. Between my promotion to manager and taking care of my disabled wife, time to get on here comes at a premium. Not to mention I've been busy with a novel I plan to self-publish on Amazon in the near future. Yesterday after work I watched the Stepper drive away with it's new owner.

Here are a few of the last Pics I took..

For those interested in reading my ramblingz, contact me and I can email a copy...

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

I am so sorry that you had to sell your stepper . If it wasnít for that truck, I wouldnít have met you and made a friend. Well the truck can go but the friendship is still there so I am glad for that . I am sure others on here feel the same .

Congrats on your promotion! Best wishes to you wife. That's too cool about the novel, & I dig the possible future project. Is the new owner of the truck a member here?

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

Hello Everyone out here who still remembers me. The new project never panned out. All's well though, at least now. Other than staying busy with work and writing, 2020 started out with a kick in the gut. My wife woke me on Jan 29th unable to catch her breath. Long story short, she had contracted the Flu and one of her lungs shut down. That morning she was sedated and intubated. A week later she was moved to another hospital and put on an ECMO machine, Life support, while the Drs attempted to determine why she wasn't able to breathe on her own. She remained sedated and on life support until Feb 15th. She was then transferred to a local hospital for Long Term Acute Care. From there she was transferred to an in-house Physical Therapy unit at a local Nursing hone which lasted less than 24 hours. Following 16 hours of constant neglect, We brought her home and have Home Health helping. She is slowly building her strength and moving toward the finish line.

On the lighter side, I published my novel. Non-Compliant on Amazon and Apple iBooks. Now I need to check out where everyone's at on their builds and whatnot.

Don

Hey Don, So sorry about your girl's strange trip with the medical system. That neglect in the nursing home really chaps me. Very glad you're past that part of her recovery. All our prayers and best wishes for you both.

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

So sorry to hear about your wife, but I'm glad to hear she has turned the corner & now greatly improving. Congrats on the book publishing, & it's a bummer the new project didn't pan out.

Not much to see on my build unfortunately. It's beginning to seem as though I'll have to go another route for anything significant to get done.

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

Thanks Guys!!!

The Missus is working daily and building strength in her legs. After being bed-ridden for 2 months, she is working with Physical Therapy in order to be able to stand and walk again. She's now able to transfer from the bed to a wheelchair on her own. Standing is just around the corner. Progress is slow and steady. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers.

If anyone is interested in reading the book, and use an iPhone, PM me and I can hook you up with a free download code for iBooks. For those of you who are old-school and want to hold a book in your hands, sorry, as of now, Non-Compliant is only available in Digital format. Thanks again, and I look forward to making time to check out the site. It's been awhile.

Don

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

It's great to hear from you. I was absent for about three years when I first retired and there were a lot of absent members when I got back to it. I'm happy that things are improving for your wife and congrats on your novel

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

Wow! I can't believe it's almost been a year since I posted.My wife is back to normal and keeping me busy. Yesterday she started push-mowing the front yard, something she hasn't been able to do for a few years now due to the condition of her back.

I haven't found another project as of late. Between work and my writing career, time flies. I've published two books on Amazon with a third ready to land any day now. Two more are in the edit stages.

Ona a side note, Forty-three years ago today, I started basic training... Dang, I can't believe it's been that many years...

Thanks for taking the time to read this... I'll try and check in more often. Time to check out some builds.

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

That's great your lady is up and at 'em, she made an amazing recovery especially with all the other health problems going on. Very weird year we went through.
Congrats on the published books, Wow, who would have thought you had so many words in your head. I am not much of a reader but Kim is and she will check them out. She also has the tech to find them... not me, my phone is still a stupid flip phone.
Let us know if you want another truck project as there's always something worthy around here. Maybe you will be able to join us in this years toy drive, being held this coming November. Hope so, we've been missing you guys.

Well said.

Don is a close friend, despite the distance.

Making his actions speak for him, always generous, never complaining.

And knowing him, he probably has something up his sleeve.

Re: Donz '65 SWB Stepper Budget Build...

Good to hear from you Don! Glad to hear your wife is doing better, & congrats on the book publishings. Sounds like you're staying busy with that. I haven't been on here much myself, as there's not much going on with any of my projects. Hope you come across something else to tinker with.
