I just finished a PM yesterday with Lou since I was somewhat concerned that he was AWOL. It's been some time since I read any of his posts.
His response to me was that real life has been keeping him busy and he just hasn't had the time to contribute to the forum or to work on his latest mod.
He assured me that he and family are healthy and well but that he has been conscripted to provide some necessary training and tutelage to his grand daughter
as well as providing some necessary home care for his mother. Obviously a busy household and I can readily see how a young 2 year old sprite could drain ones energy level in no time flat.

Lou has indicated that he is only on leave. Personally I think it is more like fatigue duty. biggrin

He will undoubtedly be heard from soon.

Best Regards;

Thank you sir. I have a great deal of sympathy for him that way. It's all i can do to drop by here once in a while. My company wants 50 hour weeks for a while until we can clear up the backlog. Luckily, I'm paid by the hour! but then I get home,, the granddaughters are here, and I get precious little time to keep up here, much less fly!

You know, I often wonder what lives the folks from here have outside this place...and I've also wondered how/which people would look out for one another. I've been around forums since the CompuServe days (71332,674 lol) so I do know people are in contact outside the forum in many cases. But you just never know specifically, and it's always good to know that people keep an eye out.

It seems to apply all the more so, where someone so esteemed a colleague as our revered Lou is concerned. I'm not at all surprised he's just as treasured and valuable to those near him smile

Thank you for the update Robert. Looking forward to Lou’s return and all the gifts he brings to the forum.
