To my dear friends and fellow TRF members,

I've been away for some time taking care of my soon to be 86 year old Grandfather whom had a stroke back in April. He's slowing coming back to his old self, but I fear he won't ever fully recover from that event. So, please know I'm still here, though my active involvement in rocketry has been reduced because of current commitments.

Not a day goes by that I don't marvel at your ongoing projects and designs here at TRF, and I take a few minutes everyday to gaze with pride at my completed Sandman Little Joe 2 with my scratch-built tower. I read about each of your projects and see them as a beacon of enjoyment to brighten my days, and look to each of you as a friend in a life long passion for the perfect flight.

In closing, I just wanted to say Thank You for having a place like TRF to come to and just be myself, that is ... a wide eyed child filled with wonder and awe staring up at the heavens, dreaming of all the endless possibilities. You are why I'm still a member here.

So please TRF ... don't ever change who you are.

I'd like to wish each of you a Happy Holiday, and may you and yours be safe from the troubles of the world.

With deep admiration,
happy holidays silver, even though some of us just seem to hit a huge bump in the road we all have our dreams and loves in life. proud to share a common bond with you and everyone here at trf. god knows if i had more fortune in my life id probably be building expensive rockets, launching every weekend, shootin pool a few days a week, and enjoying a few beers at the end of every day.

Im sorry to hear about ur grand father, i to am having some problems with my family as well. too much to sit here and describe but u get the picture. i wish u both the best of luck

We knew you were still here, either in spirit or otherwise.

Silverleaf, I wish you and your family a Happy Holiday and a healthy and happy new year. Taking care of an aging, ill relative is a tough job, but is a worthy endeavor. Especially enjoy the time you have with him as best you can.
Happy Holidays and I wish you the best during these times. We all miss your posts and look forward to seeing more of you in the future.
