Losing your home must be devastating - Time to all pull together for strength and support.
Hope Jim has the strength to see it through - ~Hang in tough and see it through the tunnel and head for the light - don't look back, take one step-at-a time and you will get there.

My thoughts go out to Jim's family

hello

Thanks! !   

We are getting there slowly. It looks like it will be 4 to 6 months before we get back home.  And i have no idea how much it's going to end up costing me all together. But I can't wait that long to get a guitar.  SO, today after work I stopped and got one.  Thanks to some help from a friend of mine. I really want to go home.  But for now we have a roof over our head and food in our bellies.  And I can pick. Can't ask for much more than that I reckon.

Wow .... and bloody hell .... and WTF?
A house fire!  Now that is hectic.
Really glad to hear you and yours are safe and well.
But to lose so much. Devastating.
A new beginning is forced upon you. That guitar is a REALLY good start though ... very nice.

I'm registered to facebook through different accounts, and it's so good to know the familiar faces are sill going strong .... but the reality of facebook is that I f***ing HATE it ..... period ! So yea I dont actually keep up with everyone on there.
Yet the stuff I have seen from you Jim always makes me laugh, you're one funny cookie.

I know you guys will pull through, eventually.
Keep us posted.

That's nasty news indeed,

But atleast the family and pets are all okay, that is what matters most!

Jim, all the best to you and your family, and that is a really cool guitar you got there.
I bet your Blues skills will improve lots, now
