    Anybody heard from Phillip lately? How’s his health doing?

    Someone said in a hospice. If so either he is quite ill or has no net access.

    I miss him, and Donn, and quite a few others who have found the place too combative.

    I miss Phillip, too, but that is an ironic statement.

    The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.
    Personal failures are too important to be trusted to others.

    So, discuss something else.

    Phillip Allen has net access and continues to post to the WBF. Phillip Allen himself said his doctor told him he now qualifies for hospice care (http://forum.woodenboat.com/showthre...or-hospice-now). So evidently he is indeed in poor health.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Emily - thanks for reaching out. It's good to see you posting Phillip. I don't get here very often anymore, but I always try to keep up with the "regulars."

    Take care of yourself!

    Sorry to hear you’re under the weather.
    Hope you can get back to the range. I’ve always enjoyed and learned from your shooting reports.
