    Eagle eye aka My Elf aka Keith

    Many of you know Keith who has been making Dutchware gear with me. He does production, shipping and customer service. This frees me up to lolly gag and frolic.
    Well he had major surgery yesterday. They Peeled off his face and removed parts of his forehead, some brain tissue and eye socket. He is surviving his second bout with cancer and the 11 hour surgery went well. He will be getting brand a new titanium forehead. I suggested tarp flyz grill but the surgen had something else in mind. Any how he is resting well at university of Pitt. He is expected to make a full recovery. I am alone in the shop trying to figure out how to splice Whoopies. I have a leave of absence from lolly gagging and frolicing at work so I can try to fill his shoes...and I guess his hat too.

    Seriously keep him in your prayers and positive thoughts as we all need him even if you didn't know it.

    Also can someone show me how tho print shipping labels.
    Peace Dutch

    MAN that's pretty gnarly sounding! Most definitely will keep him in our prayers ... and for his "lolly gagging" friend!

    Keep us posted on his progress pal!

    Titanium forehead huh? Now that's full immersion in one's work for sure!

    Prayers to both of you.....

    WoW, I just saw him at trail days and he looked as happy and chipper as ever I never would of known he was going in for major surgery. Keith my positive vibes lots of good thoughts and prayers all sent your way. Mary stay strong my positive vibes good thoughts and prayers go your way as well in staying strong for your husband throughout this trying time for the both of you. Here's to a speedy and full recovery Keith.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    I haven't met either of you, but I wouldn't wish that on anyone.
    Best of luck to you all and hopefully we will all meet somewhere down the road.

    Although a Ti forehead would be kinda cool...
