Keep going, just don't forget your nutritional health.

Thank you for replying. I do wonder how someone like you does with life.
You seem to teach me something every time you post on these forums etc...
I inspire to be as great as you Jack.

Thanks for updating us too on your progress.

Take care.

Hey Mark,

    I am sorry for the delay in replying to you. I was trying to figure out the best way to format my reply. A short one filled with OK’s and clichés?  A long drawn out one with all the boring details? I will try something in the middle!

    I am OK, physically and emotionally. I miss my wife, sweetheart, girlfriend and partner. There is no pain or sorrow involved, just a great big throbbing empty ache. I spent too much work and effort in climbing out of deep depression in the past to allow my happiness to seep away because an inevitable event finally took place.

    I am 83 years old. Sixty of those years were spent in the company of my soul mate. I learned things in those 83 years. One very big discovery was that it is possible to learn for your entire life. That is what I am doing now. I am learning that much of my previous enjoyable lifestyle was possible because my partner in life was very, very competent and well organized and made it possible for me to have an abundance of discretionary free time. Every day I am busy trying to learn the skills involved in cooking, cleaning, shopping and everything else involved in keeping a household in working, functional order. Learn and find out that there is something else that you need to know and that you have no idea of how to find out.

    I used to live a very comfortable and satisfying live. Now I do not have enough time in my day to accomplish everything that needs to be done, let alone the things that I enjoy doing. I am forced make difficult choices and concentrate on handling the most important things first.

    I am making progress. On Friday I got the last of our financial accounts changed from her name and or joint ownership into my name. I still have to get beneficiary status established on a new account. Next week, I will be sitting down with two of my sons and start creating my will. It is now over 4 months since my wife died. I could not believe how bumbling and incompetent some of the people in the financial field are.  It is extremely important to handle these things in exactly the proper manner and sequence to avoid large penalties and heavy taxes.

     I had my train platform and Christmas tree in the living room again this year. I had 4 trains on the platform and could operate 3 of them simultaneously. I hosted dinner for 16 people. I do not intend to quit living. As my skills grow and I bring order out of chaos I will be able to get more involved in my EAW interests. That was one of the areas that I had to put on a back burner.

    I guess that when I get Teamspeak installed and working I will be able to blow the bugle and announce that I am back in action.

    Now it is time to send this off and get dinner ready and then wash the dishes and go off to my model railroad club.

Jack McGarvey

Hello All,

It has been a while since I have posted anything. I am still working on getting my life into some sort of functioning order. I never realized how much my wife’s organizing talents were the foundation of my discretionary free time. Live and learn. Nothing is free. Somebody is paying the price and now the bill is coming to me.

The main thing right now is to wish everybody  a Merry Christmas.



 I have hopes/intensions to install a working TeamSpeak. Perhaps I will get it done after the New Years.

I looked through your pictures. Very cool.
Interesting to see other countries from in front of my computer screen with ease. :)
Thanks for sharing.
