    I have exchanged a couple of notes with John this week and I know his health is still a big concern. Between, the meds and the illness, he is in a constant state of pain and nausea. He will be heading back to the hospital for more testing within days. These test will be difficult, and he is worried that they may have to keep him there for a while.

    For those who haven't had the pleasure, John is widely recognized as the leading expert on the history of Khukuri knives. He has been quite active in these forums; and, much of the lore on khukuries that we will share on these and other forums was originally collected by John Powell.

    Lets get the smoke going and put in a good word for him. He is a great guy and we all want to see him healthy and back here soon.


    BTW, John OK'd posting a note on here for you

    Smoke for John.

    He has a very long walk to his apartment and it is all uphill. Gotta be hard.

    Good guy. Wish him peace and health.
