Passing my sincere condolences to Scott with the loss of his dad on Sunday. His health had been failing as of recent and now he's at peace with the good Lord.


I was fortunate to have met Scott's folks a few times and if you're not in a hurry to leave, his dad could certainly keep you busy in conversation for,,,, quite some time smile . And as he was a retired firefighter from Chicago I had all the time in the world to listen to his,,,, stories smile.

Scott, thoughts and prayers going out to you, your mom and your family at this difficult time.

Hang in there my friend!

Sending my best wishes to you and your family too. I know you have been very busy taking good care of him and making sure he got the necessary medical and personal attention. That is truly honoring your father. You will not regret the time you spent with him now that he is gone. Hoping you can work through the process of the loss knowing we care for you.

Travel well, O Father of Scott!

"She took another microscopic bite of her sandwich, then pushed it away. Maybe she absorbed nutrients from her surroundings."

Scott, sorry to hear about your loss. God be with you and your family.

Sorry Scott
It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

So sorry for your loss, Scott.
"Forget pounds and ounces, I'm figuring displacement!"

If we accept that: MBG(+)FGSF(=)HBG(F1)
And we surmise that: BG(>)HBG(F1) while GSF(<)HBG(F1)
Would it hold true that: HBG(F1)(+)AM500(x)q.d.(=)1.5lbGRWT?
PB answer: It depends.

I enjoyed going over to his Father's home to pickup fish food Scott would drop off over there. I would always spend a good deal of time having a great conversation. Rest well Sir.

My momma never accused me of being to smart....
