Folks,

I am posting this note on Neil's behalf (TrueNorthKnives.com). He had a fall on the ice and suffers from a concussion, a hairline fracture on his skull, and a dislocated jaw.

On top of that he and his family had a stomach virus on Christmas. Not a great weekend.

Neil wrote to me he is completely OUT OF IT and is bedridden. He hears the phone and can't do a thing right now. Not his usual attending self. His email was almost gibberish, but he asked me to post in his absence.

Please wish him well, and if you have an order you are inquiring about, please be patient. He's not ready to work at the phones or the computer for a short while. He's hurtin' pretty bad. Knives will be there when he returns. I trust you'd understand. :)

Get well Neil!!

I'll add that he was in the hospital for a few days. Ugghh. That's bad. His note looked like it was typed with his foot or with a ton of medications. Even email is a bummer.

I'll fill us in as I know more.

Neil is one of the good guys.
I'm sorry to hear about your accident.
Here's wishing you a full and speedy recovery.

Let's be careful out there!

Bummer. One of the better on-line dealers. I myself have learned to respect ice the hard way. The plates, 14 screws, and rod in my left leg remind me every day. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Wow. I was starting to worry when my emails and phone calls went unanswered. Thanks for the update, Coop. Keep us advised of Neil's progress if he reports back to you. (Oh, and Merry Christmas! See you in Vegas?)

Here's wishing Neil gets back on his feet ultra-fast.

2005 will be a much better year for Neil, I am sure.

Neil,

Get better now. You are too good of a person to be laid up for long!
