BF,
Folks can feel free to send cards to

Friends of Tex (Unless you've got his name)
P.O. Box 884
Hurst, TX 76053

Also, as far as the house goes, Peaser, it's going to need a new roof, new back corner re-framed, and all flooring, drywall, and cabinetry/built-in shelving throughout will have to ripped out due to smoke damage. Not the best news, sure, but despite their fire damage, both Dad and the house are able to be repaired. And that's a good thing!

That would be a great help Cotton.

I'd just guess not many would be looking for updates over there during non-trading days anyway.

Thanks!!

Wow!! I hadn't looked at this part of allstocks for a few weeks. Tex was helping me with a project and I was wondering why he had lost interest in it. Last time he responded he was doing some taping because his son if I remember was moving in. I'm sorry to hear about the fire and Tex's injuries but glad to hear it sounds like he is coming home shortly. I missed out on helping with the laptop to. please put the $100 I send in under the name Northwoodsent toward his medical bills.
Nina once his home owners is set if you wish and I would certainly be happy to do it. You could use the money to buy a two way ticket to your closest airport and I will resheet and shingle his roof for him. I would just need a bed to sleep in for the week. The money you would save on labor could go toward something else he needs.

JGRE: What an amazing offer. I've sent you a PM about it.

And, all: Dad will see this for himself shortly because, today, HE'S OUT OF THE HOSPITAL! As soon as he gets his bearings and feels up to it, I know he'll be checking in here with you all. And since I figured he'd see this thread before I'm able to get there with the laptop on Wednesday, I went ahead and told him our surprise this morning. He is so very touched.

You're a wonderful, wonderful group of people.

love,
Niña de Tex

Glad to hear he's out of the hospital. Haven't been to the boards for a few days, so missed the laptop thing until I saw a PM from Bigfoot today. So if you've already got the laptop, add my donation to the pool for anything else you are working towards fixing.

Nina, is his phone in working order? I'd like to give him a call.

Also, I was wondering where he will be staying over the course of the next few months. Hopefully, all will work out for the best.

Tex has kept watch over these boards and helped us out many of times...it's time to pay him back!


Keep sendin' in the funds to Paypal.

Tex will be out of comission for some time more than likely, and can probably use all the help he can get to pay for his monthly mortgage.

Damn!!!

I've been away from allstocks and Ihub for a while cause I've been busy with school and work!

Then I stumbled across this thread. It's terrible news, However, it's also great to see everyone at allstocks come together and help tex out during this whole ordeal. The new laptop computer was an awesome idea! It realy shows how many people care about Tex, and appreciate having tex around.

I hope you get well Tex, in every way....physicaly, mentaly, financialy, spiritualy any other way I may have left out!

Nina,

Could you double-check the P.O. Box address for me? Someone on I-hub said his get well card was returned as undeliverable.

Thanks a bunch,

BF

Hey, gang,

Can't quite say, "I'm back" just yet, but I had to thank you...one and all. For one thing, I'm writing to you on my brand new Dell laptop, with the Intel Core2 Duo chip and studio monitor, four mountains of RAM and a mountain range of storage, plus DVD R/W drive. Quite a machine you all ponied up for...My daughter delivered it last week, and I'm still test-driving, but it's a really nice machine and a wonderful aid to me right now. Thank You.

Second: I tried to read this thread at one sitting...and couldn't do it. I got too choked up.

In other words, I also appreciate your kind words and strong support. You are the best, and you explain why this remains my home board. And, yup, I know some pals from da Hub chipped in, too, but it all started here. Again, my thanks...

As for me, I'm in a safe place, getting lots of good food (for instance, breakfast today was a celery-laced omlette, wild-pig sausage, peaches and kajillion-grain toast with juice and hot tea) and as much exercise as I can handle.

I had an outpatient follow-up today--basically, I've got a long way to go but I walk better every day and the docs say I'm ahead of schedule...

Oh...thanks also for the welcome you gave my daughter. Y'all are one class act, all the way.

Warm wishes and highest regards...I'll start being around some, slowly but surely.

Yer pal,

Tex

Welcome Back Tex!! Glad we all could help. The money we all chipped in is nothing compaired to how much we have enjoyed your postings as well as the money you helped us make/save with you knowledge. Look forward to reading more of your posts. Do you need anymore help with anything? I'm not sure but I think the paypal account is still open. So if that is correct, I'm sure we can help you out with your recovery costs. Just let us know. Ohhh....and don't look at it as a "HANDOUT". Look at it as "We are Investing in you".

From all of us who care, your sincerly welcome!!

Bill

Hiya Tex! Good to see you posting and the great news that you are getting the care that you need and deserve. I'll let Mom (Ocqueoc) know you are feeling a little better. She will be happy to know as well!

Take care of yourself...I hope to be "seeing" more of you soon!
