y’all I hope Merle is ok, I been hearing that Oz is having some wildfires and Merle probly needs prayer and good thought ok hop to it, get those hands together


Thanks John. I’m ok, but as you’ve seen some people have lost everything. Australia usually has fires but this is unprecedented, we’ve never had this many fires covering so much of the country.
I’m not a prayer myself but knowing we’re in your thoughts helps. Thanks.


**Alrighty then, 8-1-2021, and checking up on you again
Hope you are well mate.

Hey Johnbarry,
It’s been a while. How are you going?. Me? ahhggg, same, same. I’ve been put back on the medical roundabout, I’ve actually got a specialists appointment later this morning, but I’m not expecting any great miracle/answer. I’ll just go through the routine and see what they come back with.

Hope all is well with you

Gosh Merle
That’s not much to look forward to is it? (Medical Roundabout)?
So the new word in our global vocabulary is ‘pandemic’, and more and more people have begun to think that since the survival rate is so great then
Why worry about it? Many different opinions floating around
Well I hope you are getting along alright. I myself have gotten this far by
Using what I see is a bunch of common sense and I hope I have enough of that to get me through to the next century.
Take care, thanks for the note

Heyyyyy Merl, how you been ? I flipped thru here today and thought I’d look you up. I am 63 now (a pup compared to you), been wondering if you are still hung up in the ‘medical mill’ of industrialized medicine. WoW, do you remember the truckers strike awhile back ? In Canada, trudeue turned off everybody’s money card and suddenly
ther was no more truckers strike. Lots of Groovy stuff gone on here in the U.S., I dunno if you get to hear about it. Lots of folks are mad at Biden and his son .
Hey, got to go, stay tuned for further updates

Hey John,
It’s been a while, how are you going? I’ve ‘semi’ (well, as much as I can) given up on the ‘medical mill’ and just try to manage the best way I can. I’ve exhausted damn near every option open to me and I get enough headaches without bashing my head against that brick wall. I do have a dr’s appointment on Monday, but that’s merely for medications.

I can understand why the truckers went on strike. The big retailers all want product and even during COVID, when everybody was staying home, the freight was still expected, placing the drivers at risk. But this wasn’t recognised or acknowledged by the retailers or governments. Over here we have a company with a huge fleet (one of the biggest freight movers in the country) and their trucks have written “If the freight industry stops, the whole country stops too” and it’s true. If they tried restricting their money card here, there would be riots in the streets and not just from a mob of drivers, but ‘Joe Public’ too.
