Been out of the loop for a while now.


Recommended Posts

It's been a while.

It was an extremely tough year in 2020 and early 21 but trying to get back in the groove a little at a time. My wife was diagnosed with a very ugly liver cancer that was untreatable in Sept of 20 and I became caretaker when hospice was not around as she wanted to die at home. She passed away in Jan of this year.

Anyway we took a few pics last weekend so I thought I would share a few.

So sorry for your loss, but welcome back.  Grief has it's own timeline and maybe this is a step at re-engaging.  I know it can be hard.

Car looks great, and the photos are terrific!  Your front tag reminded me of when not only County but last name initial was included; my last Kansas tag was SW C 109x and that was, "ahem", sometime in the 70s.  Also in the 70s, I went to a local Mustang club meet in Nebraska, straight up from Topeka and right over the state line it seems.  And that's really about all I can tell you - lol.

I find some of my greatest moments of peace are behind the wheel on a long road with a destination of nowhere in particular... just you, the car and the cruise.

Hi Everwood,

My heart goes out to you and your family. My wife Sally also passed this year in my arms (April 20th 2021).  She also was from Kansas (paola). Sally also passed at home,  I was so Thankful to have her here at home. 

Gorgeous car, I bet she loved the open air ride. Take care and write any time! Im here.

My heart goes out to you, I am sorry for your loss. That is a gorgeous convertible and awesome background in the pictures. I'll bet there are fond memories with the top down and cruising with your wife.

So sorry for your lost.  I'm for sure she was smiling and looking down on you when you got the car out for the drive.  The gas pumps and pricing fit the time period of the car.  Great pics of both.
