Apologies to all...I'm back finally ;-( / ;-)
Permalink Closed


A Big "Howdy!" to ALL.....

Just in case you've all already forgotten my name, this is Tread, or ' treader's' speaking to you.....yeah that's right, I'm 'back on the block'.

As the thread title says, I apologise for suddenly up and leaving the Forum here, as well as all of you fine people who populate it, but I had a rather shocking and surprising family emergency come up some weeks ago....my Mother, who lives in New Jersey by herself, had a severe heart attack suddenly.
I had to drop everything I was doing at the time and jump on an emergency flight back to New Jersey to attend to her. Without going into details, I had to change my original plans of flying right back, and instead, remain there to take care of many issues that erupted including the state of her estate.
She is now stable and has {at present} temporary live-in health care, but there will be a significant amount of additional follow up needed before it is all said and done with. Fortunately she is still with us, and still as onery as ever.

This change in plans {staying there in Jersey} has had rippling effects to my home life, as well as my employment status. But I did what I had to do, and would do it again.....

Anyway, I just felt compelled to explain my absence from the Forums for those who might have noticed it in the first place.....

Thx for taking the time to read this.

Warm regards to all.

Tread.

I can't speak for anyone else but I was wondering what had happened to you. Was tempted to put up a "Where's Treader's?" thread.


Hope things work out all right with you and your family.

Hello Tread


 


 I am very sorry to hear about your Mother, I am very glad that she is stable, I have had a heart attack, and I am only 37 so I know it can be a very scary thing to go through, it’s a lot easier when you have a caring and loving family.


Take Care and God Bless you and your family (Especially your Mother) during this trying time.


All the Best


Tim R

...sorry to hear of your mother's trauma.  I'm sure your promptness to be at her side helps in her recovery.


Hopefull, a way will be found for you to protect your employment, and personal family needs.  You, and yours, shall be in my prayers....

Good to see you back Treaders, and like everyone else here I'm sorry to hear how things are going. Best of luck, and take care!

Glad you're back. My family went through something similar about 2 years back and it isn't easy and words don't always seem to help much. Hope you're getting through the worst and look forward to your contributions again

Howdy again fellas

First off, it's mighty good to be back amoungst all of you buggers. The past few weeks has been pretty.........tough. So, having a bunch of blokes to talk to is a bit of a relief if you all don't mind me saying so.

to Mark
Many thx for thinkin' about sendin' up a flare. A "Where's Treader's" thread posted to this bunch of deep researchers would probably have generated a rather lengthy discussion about tracks/treads of the Great War!....

to TimR
Your kind words of support are much appreciated mi compadre' And hearing that (1), you have already experienced a heart attack is surprising, but even MORE surprising is that you managed to have this experience before you were 37!?!........wow, glad you were able to ride it out. Of course the only advantage {if there is one} about having it so early in life is that you were much stronger, and hopefully were more physically able to get past it.
My only suggestion to you sir is to pay strict attention to taking care of yourself. And this 'suggestion' is at least partially self indulgent.....I really enjoy your input around here.....would hate to lose ya'!.......

to 28juni14
Even though I probably wouldn't be considered an overly religious person, your offer of prayers is geniunely appreciated. I would like to think that the 'Big Guy' upstairs has already done his kind work and kept my Mother with us......so again, thanks for the thoughts.
As to my employment picture. One that front I think the dye has already been cast....the company I worked for felt that the time I took off was too damaging to the projects I was working on, and have seen fit to brush me aside........no matter though...The time spent back in Jersey allowed me the clarity of vision to begin applying a more proper yardstick to life...suffice it to say that there will be some significant changes happening in my life from now on.
But again, thx for the concern.

to Roger
Thx for taking the time to chime-in on my rather 'off-topic' Post. You are one of the stalwart supporters of this site, and one of the steadfast people we can all count on to assist when you can...so I just know that your words of support honestly come from your heart.
Thx pard;

to Anonymous

Ya know....at first I had to read your post a couple of times to make certain you were actually saying what you were in fact saying......and, I must admit, once I understood what you were saying my first reaction was to get angry at such unfeeling and insensitive verbage....but then, after just a few seconds of reflection based upon some of the recent life-lessons I've come face-to-face with as of late, I was left with simply feeling quite sorry for you.
My only wish is that as few people as is possible come into contact with people harbouring such hollowness such as yourself and that, despite yourself, in your potential times of troubles that, with luck, someone will still step up and offer you a hand of understanding....

to Roger again
Thx.

to Centurion
I am most sorry to hear that you too went through this type of thing...and as you say, words do seem to fall short sometimes...but ya know what? Words are the medium we can all use to convey feelings to one another, good or bad, kind or insensitive....so your words of support and kindness are genuinely accepted with the empathy that they are intended with.....
Now, as far as my "contributions" are concerned, I pale in comparison to you bunch o' blokes!........but one can only keep trying.....can't one?

to Michel
Allow me to share something with you Michel if you don't mind.
I just got back in town this past weekend and had to attend many things when I got back. Suffice to say, I had many suprprises awaiting me {don't worry, shant go into them}. Once I was done with these other things, one of the things I wanted to do was at least post a message here at Landships to at least show that I hadn't just simply dissappeared without any regard for you gentleman....but I hemmed and hawwed, and went back and forth on whther I shold do just that...thinking; maybe I shouldn't share any of this baggage with you fellas.......but I really have to admit that I think I am pretty good at reading people, and I felt certain that it would simply be 'O.K.'.........so I decided to go ahead with my Thread, and just hope I didn't offend, press, or bother anyone here......and as you so eloquently said my dear Michel, I was welcomed...." back in this Community of people with interests not only in landships, but also in eachother.
"

You guys are the best.

Warmest Regards,

"Treaders"

  We are a community of friends, even though we may live in different countries and have never met each other, we still support one another. This is no place for some one cold hearted. Or main focus on this forum is WW1 and Landships, but we also have lives outside our hobby. And we often have to look to our friends for support.


I am going to leave this post you have made, to show how rude and insensitive some people can be.


   “If I find out who you are, I will ban you from this site”


As for all of you who did give there support to our friend Tread, God Bless you all.


All the Best


Tim R

Yo Treaders!


It's great to see you so chipper! Sounds like it's been a rollercoaster for you recently, though. Your employers, talk about understanding... On the plus side, it sounds like your mother's a strong 'un!


Tim, well said! After this, I won't say any more about 'Anonymous', so as not to give him the satisfaction of thinking he's made more of a ripple than he has, except to ask - why? What was the point? If you've not got anything good to say, keep quiet.


Back to Treaders - sounds like you're making a lot of changes to your life. I hope that out of all this chaos, you find a new, better, level than you were on before. Oh, and take of yourselves, you and your mom! And, of course, keep on visiting and posting!

Hadn't thought of that! At least you've kept your sense of humour and dignity, which is more than can be said for the heroic Anonymous. (Quick tip for Anonymous: If you don't like it, don't read it! And if it means so much to you to reply, GET A NAME!!).

Again, my heartfelt appreciation for the words of support from you all. It's good to know my 'read' was right

And in return kindness to all of you I will put this thread to bed, and say no more.

warm regards,

Tread.

Treadhead is back....  Our sensitivity to your trauma may puzzle some, but as has been said; we share a unique historical interest not generally plied by the masses out there.  Consequently there comes about a sort of a bonding I suppose. 


Starting your career anew can be a challenging task, so keep your head up; and know there's a better tomorrow !  Good cheer, Threadhead, good cheer.....
