I’m a bit concerned about a fellow LJ from whom I haven’t heard or seen a post from in over 200 days. Don K. was quite active with his postings awhile back. He is the one who started the post, “Where are We All From” that is still getting hits. I enjoyed his posts. He did some nice reviews of several tools he bought and a real nice post about an elderly gentleman/mentor who passed on. I sent a PM to him 76 days ago asking if all was okay and never received a response. His home page shows he has blackcherry, Scrappy, SCOTSMAN, and Lew among his buddies. Have any of you guys heard from him? He is from Oklahoma. Any Oklahoman LJ out there who knows him?

Nope, he burst onto the scene, then vanished with a flash a few weeks later???

I hear you Lenny, I sent out a PM 23 days ago and no response. I sure hope all is fine with him and his family, a real nice LJ. I will try another PM soon.

Well, I went and looked at some of his posts, and I’ll be doggoned if I can tell why someone would hammer him in a PM. I just don’t understand people sometimes. I hope he comes back, that is some interesting carving ability the man has.

Gary and GMman thanks for the information. This is at once, good and bad news. Good news because I’m relieved to learn his absence isn’t due to illness or family crisis, etc. Bad news of course because it’s a shame that some mean-spirited folks could drive away a man who struck me as nice enough fellow. As you indicated AtomJack, nothing in his posts strike me as warranting that kind of treatment. I wish he had consulted some of us before leaving. Maybe we could have convinced him to stay. In my opinion, the bad guys won and the good guy lost.

I just do not understand why there are people doing nasty things that create hatred among people. I’ve seen cat and dog can play together, sharing the same cage.
Man, our lives is too short time. We have less time for loving and caring, why use that limited time for creating hatred and anger?

Hope you come back, Don..!

Well said woodworm. Sometimes the anonymity of the web gives people the feeling that they can say anything they want, any time they want.
