I talked with Pat Townson yesterday, and he's OK'd this report on his condition.
Pat still has the use of only one arm, and isn't able to take up the duties of moderator yet. He said that he appreciates the readers' support, and asked that I drum up some more money, so consider this to be a prequal to the monthly drumroll. You may send PayPal donations to email@example.com.
If you'd like to send a card or a check, Pat's address is
Patrick Townson611 East Poplar Independence KS 67301
His cell phone number is 620-505-0107: please call and let him know you care.
