Best wishes to Flattop
« on: September 18, 2017, 07:55:47 PM »
Hi Bruce,

I started this thread to give everyone here at XGN an opportunity to send you messages of best wishes and support.

For myself, I find you an inspirational member here who always has a positive, "have fun" attitude in all of the many years that you and I have raced together (and you're quite hard to pass!). You're always proud of your achievements when you do well, which shows the fun you're having. You're a true gentleman racer. And you have put your hand in to organise many series and get involved. You're a real asset to XGN, and a great part of the place.

- Wally

Howdy Bruce,  Did you get out of hospital ? 
What if UFOs are just us from the future coming back in time to sight see?
Or might be to snatch women?
Tell 'em to bring some hoverboards back with 'em

Not yet, maybe tomorrow
After looking after myself, lifestyle wise,  swimming and competing, my treatments may have triggered diabetes 1, haha I wonder what is next?

Hey Bruce, what Wally said.

You certainly are an inspiration for all us old guys. Keep fighting mate, take care of yourself and get well soon.

I know you will be racing with us again soon. Although you have picked up some pace of late on Thursdays I will still get lonely at the back of the pack without someone to chase.

God Bless mate.

They have tests running, but as it appears slight they are not concerned, my oncologist has had one patient in all his experience.

Thanks Rob, kind words.
As to you being lonely down the back, remember the Arnie's line from the " Terminator"

Looking forward to seeing you back on the virtual track again Bruce, and pulling off another inspired drive, like the one that got you your last win in the Alfa. If you could do that in the Corvette  even Phil could not catch you!! I am missing the teamspeak anecdotes  like what "Lotus" actually stands for, luckily I never had enough money to buy one , I always thought they were super reliable :-[

love the Lotus, Fiat, Ford etc meanings. and I can usually find and anecdote, Denise says "your full of it",  I'm sure that is a compliment! :)
Home now, finished radiotherapy yesterday, thank goodness.  We, (and I say we, it takes a lot of the family too), have a couple of weeks rest and then on to chemo.  They are still looking after me, that good.
The hospital food was okay, although I was eating meagrely,  much nicer a

The car has perked me up mentally and although having missed meeting up with Denis and Phil at Baskerville, I am going to renew my race licence and we now plan to run at the Historics meeting at Sandown early November.
