As many would have known my wife was very sick (cancer) unfortunatly , she passed away on 2.10.09 after a hard fight with that evil condition , Im now recovered enough to start to get on with life again (just) ,I've been encouraged to get back out into the shed again and start to get ready for next year ,so hopefully I can get enough interest again to do so , anyway thought I woild let you know the reason for the absence .

Garry please accept my condolences also , on the sad loss of your wife.
The encouragement you have been given is good advice, I used the same grief outlet to get thru the feeling of loss when my mum passed away when I was young.
There's nothing like stripping a four down and putting it back together to take your mind off your loss.

Gday Gary , So sorry for the pain and suffering that wife would have had to endure with that incideous illness , and for your hurt and grief . Its easy to say time heals , and I hope it does .
Personally I couldn,t think of a better distraction than working in the shed on " toys " .
Hang in there ,we looking forward to seeing you at the salt .

G'day Gary, I too must say condolences to you and your family. It's a tough deal when you lose loved ones as Tiny said, but try to stay positive and eventually things will get better. Look after your family and hopefully they will look after you as well.

So sorry to hear of this Gary, from experience with my Father, I can understand some of the pain this awful disease puts you and your family through, please accept our condolences.

I hope that your efforts to get back in the shed can, with time, help heal the pain.

The range of interesting machinery to come from that shed - ready to run each year - makes you one of the most talented and skilled builders that I know.
