Thread: Bob Brooks seriously ill

  1. #26
    When this happens to a close one we realise that the most important thing we have is health.
    I wish a full recovery.
    I hope you and your family get all the help needed.

    Get Well Soon!

    Get well soon, friend. I'll be sending healing thoughts your way - but as you're a tough little bastard, I have no doubts you'll be back on your feet and laughing in the face of danger soon enough.

    One should never confuse the rules of a competition with the rules of an art.

    People talk a lot about speed, but not very much about control, safety, tactics, and trying to get close to the reality of sharps. When simulating sharp fights, how fast one charges in depends on how quickly one would like to die.

    Get well asafp Bob!
    "Lift up thy hands, Ilya." So he lifted them, and smote off Tzar Kalin's turbulent head, and going forth from the pavilion, he began to destroy the Tatars; and none opposed him. But he perceived that the task was not small, and so seized a Tatar by the heels, and began to beat the Tatars with a Tatar. "This Tatar is stout," quoth Ilya, "he breaketh not; he is tough, and teareth not."

    From the byliny "Ilya of Murom and Tsar Kalin"

    I'm glad to hear he's doing better, lots of positive thoughts being sent his way from Alaska.

    I wish the best for him & his family.

    Get well soon Bob!

    So that's what happened to my facebook page...

    I noticed a distinct lack of goofy & incomprehensible posts showing up on facebook lately--been missing your posts, Bob, even though I never know what you're talking about. Get well soon!
