I thiink I am back.
« on: December 26, 2011, 05:41:16 PM »
First, my apologies to everyone for my unexplained and lengthy absence.  I am so thankful to Steve all the other moderators and to everyone for keeping the Nest alive.

I was absent related to side effects to my bypass surgery and my inability to keep up with everything in my life.  I have received (receiving) treatment for the issues and have spent the past few months concentrating on my job as a lot has changed with it and I just did not have the physical and mental stamina to deal with much more.

I hope now I can re devote some time each day in catching up around here and to assume some of my duties.  As far as the store goes I know there are unfilled orders and I will make an attempt to take care of any outstanding obligations.  As for reopening the store I am unsure about that.  I will visit with Steve to see if we want to have someone else take that over or some other solution.

Again, thank you.  I may not be here as much as I was before but I will try very hard to be here a lot more than I was the past few months.  I have so many commitments to the great folks here that it will take a while to make them all right again, if that is possible.

Hi I.E.
Glad to see you back. Don't push yourself too hard. It will be good to have your input on Eagles even if it is not as often as it was before. Your health should come 1st and time with your family and job.
Best Wishes for a great New Year.

Welcome back Doug.  Been wondering about you.  Thought more than once about making a day trip and knocking on the front door or sending up a smoke signal or airplane banner or something.  Glad to hear you will be bck some.  Steve and the other moderators did a great job holding down the fort while you were gone. 

Hope you continue to do well.  Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you out.

I no longer have an AMC Eagle, but I am still a fan.

After our fiasco with the Toyota Corolla I got for my wife I believe I am done with Japanese vehicles.

Dude you are preaching to a choir member that is close to becoming an AMC Minister if you know what I mean.

Thanks again everyone.   Some of my Eagle lore has slipped away, I need to start reading again.
