    Default I will be gone for several days.

    I have to leave town tomorrow in the morning. Going to Mom and Dad's...

    Not sure if I will be on much in the next few days. My mom has Alzheimer Dad called me today while I was driving and told me a few things that has gotten worse. She needs to be in a nursing home for health care now, for her safety and his. They will be married 50 years this coming July 19th.

    He said he just can't take her on his own. I can't understand what he is going thorough since I have not been married that long.


    Anyway you all are a great bunch of guys! I know every one will be cool...

    Freight Teamster is my right hand man and can help you with anything I can do.

    HBF has a lot of experience in moderating. He will be here a lot more than Freight Teamster because he has that great Teamster Pension

    Pullin3 is my first mod. He checks out new registrations and watches for scabs. Don't mistake his wonderful use of smilies for weakness.

    IBTshirts will show you the rack of the day, and keep you up to date on the history, and watches for trolls.

    I thank all of these guys for there help and time they spend here. They do it because they love to.

    I think this is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. Be stronger than dad and help him with something he can't do alone, but he said he needs to.

    Thanks in advance for your kind words and prayers....

    Teamster

    Hey Teamster I'll be here as much as I can to help any way I can. Take care of Dad and Mom Brother. We'll take care of things here. You got both my phone numbers and please don't hesitate to use them.

    I too have a sick parent (diabetes, kidney, heart problems) it's extremely difficult. I know your pain, you have my sympathies. Stay strong Brother, we'll hold down the Fort.

    I went through that. I wish you well. I know it sounds like a cliche, but my thoughts really are with you through this.

    That's right. Family first and foremost. I would also like to point out that there is an icon to report anything to the mods. If needed the faithful members can click on that and alert the mods right away. Like my buddy FT said:

    That button is not connected to a pager on our hips.
