    I'm still around just that I've had some health issues and several other aspects of life haven't been the greatest over the past several months. I'm still keeping track of my MPG but just haven't been taking the time to post lately. Hopefully one day I'll get things straightened up/caught up and start posting regularly again. I can say that my Ultra Gauge on the current tank is showing 56.2 MPG about 450 miles into the tank. I also noticed a few minutes ago as I drove by Walmart our gasoline is back below $4.00 a gallon at $3.989.

    Good to hear from you again & hope your health is squaring up well. At least your gasoline is 11+% cheaper than our gasoline.

    Hopefully the price will continue to drop. I think the most I paid for gas this spring/summer was $4.599 and has been on the decline for 1-2 months now.

    The most I paid was $4.499 in Kentucky a few miles northeast of you (Owensboro) the day after prices began to drop there.
    Good to see that you're back!

    I know I haven't been on in awhile. Seems nearly everything that could go wrong has this year. Just when I thought it couldn't get much worse my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer that had spread to the lymph nodes, liver, lungs and bones. Looking back I now realize other things that have gone wrong this year were pretty insignificant compare to this. Less than 1 month from the date Dr.'s said she had cancer she passed away at the young age of 57 on 8/27/22. It's hard to believe that she'd been able to work 40+ hours a week up until 7/30/22. Everyone please keep me and my family in your prayers. I spent over 33 years of my life with this wonderful woman. We dated about 1 year and had over 32 years of marriage. Rest in peace my love.

    Ah…. Your wife’s & your Tragedy came quickly. Cancer…..I even hate the word. Hope your loss doesn’t take your health away which has been a problem already. Yes, I will remember you & your family to God.

    My heart goes out to you and your family, Ford Man. Your wife clearly worked hard for her loved ones. I hope she didn't suffer much at the end.

    Be strong, be together with your family, be more aware of and enjoy what truly matters to you.

    Was re-reading Ford Man’s Versa thread & our numerous posts during this time of grief. Saw this above post. I now see how little driving I have done since the ccp coronavirus hit the World. Presently, the Accent only has 171,000 miles. The ccp coronavirus has reduced the travel of the Accent (our other cars, too) drastically to less than 5000MIles(under 4000 miles?) per year.

    Just wanted to take the time to say thanks for everyone's prayers, thoughts and condolences. I'm spending a lot of free time going through cabinets, drawers and just doing general cleaning around the house to keep my mind occupied. Seems when I sit down and do nothing all I can think about is Janet and how much I miss her. A couple afternoons this week I've taken a lawn chair with me to the cemetery and just sat and talked to her for awhile.

    I’ve never found a way to grieve. Some say they feel so empty at their losses. But me, I’ve always felt so full….full of hurt, pain, sorrow & shaking. Yes, don’t come to me to ask how to grieve.

    C.S. Lewis wrote the book, A Grief Observed. Tho he was a Christian, his book doesn’t have all the faint, dim Christian things to say that are supposed to help, but don’t. Still, I don’t know if the book would help you.

    PS…..One synopsis of “A Grief Observed”:
    https://www.supersummary.com/a-grie...ZPpnOaC1Kd63DRftTM6sXPT72Z9_CfDRoC5zkQAvD_BwE

    The synopsis is OK. The book is deeper, as it should be.
