  1. Hi Gang wow it has been a while. thought I would give you all an update. As some of you know Jake had congestive heart failure last week in Aug. I rushed him up to our local hospital, they stabilised him enough to rush him into Kitchener, quite the ride sirens and lights a doctor and nurse as well as paramedic on board. They take good care of us hicks. Sept. 4 he had bypass surgery and a valve fixed five bypasses for those who count. He is doing quite well now. Going to rehab gym twice a week for the next four months he should be better fit than most when he is done. We are still heating the house with wood and the stubborn old goat insists he bring in the wood. I am awaiting knee replacement surgery should be around March. so we are quite the pair. We have scaled back the embroidery and have been able to keep up with the commercial orders but have had to make some of the one offs and small orders wait sorry for that. everyone has been so understanding its nice to know that there are good people out there. Tardis is still in the black hole aka Jakes workshop. Jake did get a glimmer of enthusiasm after reading this morning he might not have to drop the whole engine but just the front to get the alternator off. woopee there is hope for next summer to get him back on the road. So this update is really wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy travels on the roads and oh yes hug your loved ones tightly when you get the chance you never know what awaits around the corner. We hope to attend a few of the dinners if the weather co operates I miss you all and they are so much fun. Karen Ps Jake doesn't know I am posting he is out gathering wood he loves using his rail system for bringing it up on the porch.
