Some transatlantic friends may already be aware ,but I thought the rest may want to know ?
This cantankerous old git is not too well ......well I am not surprised , he must be about 150 years old ! I have known him for too long ,that he makes me feel old!
He posted this recently on another channel (the one those nasty folk in the world ,think I don't see .lol)
"Bugs Bunny said it all at the end of his cartoons so I used his words.
This is very hard for me to write , I am feeling very emotional or even fearful. I've been in hospital for about a week . I was very ill for a while and my wife called in the doctor who shoved me into hospital at once. At first they thought I had T.B. or maybe some very infectious illness from the jungles of Africa, hence the protective clothing and face masks everyone wore around me.... it is odd to only be able to see the eyes of someone who is speaking to you.

I was put into isolation in a room and all the nursing staff, doctors etc. who had to enter the room had to wear protective clothing and face masks ! :roll: I was CT scanned and infectious illnesses were eventually ruled out . I had pneumonia but while CT scanning me for that , 3 "dark patches" were found on my lungs and one fairly large tumour was found inside them.

So "That's all folks" …….. I will write in when I can ."
I for one , hope that auld git ,gets back to full fitness , be that coughing and spluttering his usual p%*sh which gives such amusement to everyone including me .
Atb .mate . Robert ...yer best pal :lol:

Sorry to hear Bill is unwell. He has made a tremendous contribution here; hope he sees improved health in the new year.

Polmaise -

This is troubling news indeed, but it was kind and thoughtful of you to let us know. I thank you for thinking of us.
Good friends are a treasure. Know that there are folks on this side of the pond who count you both as such.

Please know that you both will be in my prayers this holiday season. Trekmoor so that he may weather this storm and you, to stay strong for him.

God bless.

Thanks folks. I was taken into hospital with pneumonia but during CT scanning, dark areas on my lungs and a tumour in one of them was discovered. It doesn't look good but I am hoping for the best.

If we could only get green cards for the two Scottish "Skinflintstone" chums to ply their gundog training trade over here, they both would revitalized physically and fiscally by the opportunities that lie-eth before them. Trust me, that's no joke...
