Re: DRY DOCK FOR USS SHAW
As far as the cancer news goes, it is now somewhat surprisingly upbeat. Oldest stepdaughter seems to actaully be either holding her own or improving, due to chemo treatments. She is at home for last several months. Doctors gave her until end of July at most with her stage 4 stomach cancer, but she's still here! Rather incredibly, next oldest stepdaughter was diagnosed in July with uterine cancer. Treatment was hysterectomy; she seems to be doing fine, but is getting light (?) chemo just in case. My wife is stressed to the max, of course. BTW, don't even think about living in California. We've got so many problems--governor, legislature, corona virus, fires all over hell and gone (living in smoke filled skies for last month), and so on. I am managing to make a very few models under commission, however. Thanks for your posting. I got to vent just a little. 2020 has been one heck of a year for me.
Sorry to hear about the cancer news, I hope they got to good and effective treatment and are doing OK. I have not been able to get here to the site often, too much work (the opposite of being at home to avoid the virus, I get to go to work at the medical center and sit in endless meetings about the virus). I hope you are also distant from all the fires.
HI. Long time,no post anything. Stay in tepee with squaw. Get commissions for crazy models.
USS SHAW was in a dry dock when all hell broke loose. Does anyone have photos of said dry dock or measurements? Height of side walls--design of
gates? (I get the craziest commissions, though this one sounds very interesting).
2020 has been one of the most stressful years for me. Two stepdaughters come down with serious cancer at almost the same time. No place to go out to for entertainment of dinner. Don't like eating in parking lots under tents. Well, I have managed to make a couple of commissioned models and am working on the planned successors to the French Mogador class (never built due to German interference!). Sure like this website. Paul, you do a great job for which we should all offer our thanks.
