It's too late for that. He has permanent tendon damage, carpal tunnel syndrome, and a palm with huge tufts of hair sprouting out of it.

Y'all ain't right. And probably won't ever be, I'm thinking.

And in sad news, for any of you that don't get over to the O/T side, I saw posted this morning that Duke's mama has passed. Praying for the family here, thought you guys might want to know.

Thanks guys. Rough couple of days. I actually won't be on all day, every day for a while!

I was the youngest but she put me in charge of burying her, although a few brothers are helping. I'd be more than happy to exchange the duty for seeing her again.

The one good thing, most of the family was there, and it was sudden and peaceful. She was asleep...then she wasn't. No noise or movement, she just went away. I was sitting next to her when it happened, which is a comfort.

Just found this. Prayers for you and family, Duke.

Losing mine was tough. Sorry you're going through this but you'll have
a lifetime of memories. Mom's are a special gift....I'm glad you had her for
so long.

Same from me. My Mom is responsible for my connection to all you "crazies." When she died she passed her old 1988 Lincoln Mark VII Sport Coupe on to me. I didn't care that much for the "tank" so I traded it in on my first Corvette, a black on black 1995 C4 standard coupe.

Dukeman, this is sad news. I still miss my mom as much as the day she passed. We'll put your family in our prayers.

Thanks. I miss her but it hasn't really sunk in yet that this is my new reality.

Today was the funeral, it was a simple service, just immediate family and a few friends. Minister did a good job.
