Marty, As a stage 4 survivor, I can speak to the therapeutic and curative properties of "workin' on the railroad". St. Thomas Aquinas said "work is prayer" so I encourage you to invest both emotional and physical energy in your magnificent pike. During my recuperation it worked wonders. Having met you and Dotty at the Big E, several years ago, I know you have both the motivation and support to overcome this challenge. And besides, anybody who can build working catenary can do anything! Good luck to you both.
That is a truly great message, IMHO. I can’t say anything that would equal it. I only met you once Marty but I wish you and your family the best.
