    Just what the title said; has anyone heard from Thom/Manyirons? I've not been able to get in touch with him for a few days (I think since Friday) and I need to talk to him.

    Hopefully someone knows what's up.

    I PMed him about the possibility of getting his German gunsmith friend to do some work on my Old Army, but haven't gotten a reply. PM was sent yesterday, I think. Probably out somewhere shootin'. Can't expect him to live on his computer like the rest of us do. ROFL!:D

    I'm proud of myself, though. Did a range trip today. Been a couple of weeks.

    Normally, I'd agree; but I've been hearing from both him and Jule (the smith) one or more times a day.

    I'm getting a bit concerned.

    Yep... Jule's health, Thom's health, along with some reports of tornados in Ohio, I'm worried.

    I have been trying to contact him since the weekend and have had no replies to my PM's or an e.mail I sent to his address. I spoke to Jule on Friday for about an hour and then nothing since! It's most unlike Thom not to reply almost before my PM is sent!!
    I am very concerned indeed.

    Jule is okay, but ill. Influenza! He worked too hard.

    He's okay too, they're both under the weather I guess!! :(


    It's what happens when you try to work a 140 hour week...

    Jule replied to my PM. I reckon I'll give 'em a chance to heal and give me a chance to get some money before I send 'em my Old Army. :D I'm finally going to get that stupid front sight raised so I don't have to take such a weird sight picture. It shoots so high, I have to hold the blade at the bottom of the rear sight and aim as if it was at the top, if that makes any sense. LOL I'm going to get the cylinders bored for max hog killin' power while I'm at it. If I'm going to have to hold off a big hog after I pop him once with my .50, I want all the juice I can get out of it. :eek: LOL

    Sounds like you two (Thom and Jule) need to stop working so hard. It may seem like working round the clock would save time, but in the end, it really doesn't. You either get sick, shorten your life, or both.

    I called Jule today; no answer. He wasn't sounding so good yesterday, so hopefully he's resting up and getting better, not out and about.

    I hope they ain't got what me and the wife had a week or so ago. If they do, they won't be gettin' too far from the commode. Between the pukin' and the, well, the other, I got dehydrated. I sipped a little water here and there and got back normal after a while. I had something similar once before and got so weak from the dehydration I had to get hauled to the emergency room for an IV of normal saline. Ain't much feels much worse, I can tell ya that!

    Get well soon, guys.

    We are DAMnED-Well Between us all resting until next paln made, candidly too tired post all to even communicate.

    THen there was THOM! We did NOT-know his blood sugar he was not checking. MY Mann has bad disc in back, sciatica, damamged, knee and has from "Bends" suffered too many times!

    And still he works like normal mann and more!

    SO! Fortnight-Next, Untill All Ready, Will Communicate, Orders-Takes&Ship Easily!

    I hope they heal up good. I guess we'll hear from them in what...two weeks right? Isn't that a fortnight? Either way...Godspeed fellas, heal as fast as your bullet flies! :what:

    Within two weeks or so... kind of like how we say "in a couple of weeks". :)

    This says otherwise. ;)


    She most certainly didn't mean it literally. It's just better than saying "soon" and having people wonder what it meant. :)
