    I called today. I suggest you call Friday, some time around right after your lunchtime. I called him at 4pm. I don't know what time they feed him dinner, but getting too late in the afternoon might not be so good.

    Will you call every Friday for the next month? That would be great.

    Great. I called him today. Joe will call him Friday pending my suggestion. Can you do Monday, around 3-4pm your time?

    Then we can have a person for the weekend.

    If you're willing to call him on Mondays for the next four weeks, that would be great.

    Great. Can you take Saturdays? Around 4pm, before dinner time?

    If the four of us can call those days, once a week, then it would be great to find 3 more who will do the other days of the week.

    I can’t call, because of my chaotic schedule, and he wouldn’t know me from any stranger, but I want you to know that the empathy shown here has brought tears to my eyes. Kudos to all of you, and “elf” in particular. I raise my glass to you.

    Empathy is what makes the world decent, sir. Without it no spiritual calling can be convincing, nor any political system.

    Emily I'll call him at my lunchtime on Friday.

    Decourcy, for better or worse we are all family here and we stick together. I've been the recipient of some amazing kindness and friendship fom this group and I'm just giving back to a friend I met on here.

    Funny Jamie story. I first met Jamie IRL when I was offered a berth on Uncas his 1948 Hinkley Sou'wester. I had reserved a slip in Liberty Marina in Jersey City and I was to jump on board with a couple other forum members. As Jamie was piloting the boat into the slip things were getting a little tense and he was barking order. Steven Bauer, who I had met IRL previously was sporting a nice black eye shiner. I asked Steven what happened? He blurted out in complete panic mode " Whatever you do don't piss off the Captain ( Jamie ) So I decided to lets all go to the marina bar for a beer before shoving off. I was worried about what I was getting myself into for a couple of week cruse up to the WBS in Newport RI that year. So we all settle down and I bring up Stevens black eye and they all start laughing, Seven hit the companionway in turbulent seas, and Jamie was an absolute sweetheart the whole trip. At one point it was just me and him and the last leg down to NY and I had learned as we got close to any docking to go down into the galley and make a nice Dark & Stormy and hand it to Jamie and tell him he's got this and calm him down. That trip is on this forum in its entirety someplace and was probably one of the first travelogs posted in real time on this forum and I was using a Palm Pilot Phone ( remember those ) since an iPhone wasn't even a thought in Steve Jobs brain.

    Jamie is in the pink hat and I believe that Emily is in the WBF hat with lights.

    I'd be in, except that when I called him a few weeks ago, he either couldn't hear me, or couldn't understand.

    I'll send a card every week.

    I'm in. Emily, just tell me what day / time

    Second only to Chuck (Paladin), when Dave and I were working on Sarah, Jamie was the most generous with knowledge, advice, materials. There's still 100' of lifeline material in the garage waiting to be installed that was a hand-me-down from Uncas. What is that? like $8 a foot now...

    I have Thursday down for you, around 4pm your time. That would be next week, as Joe will jolly his ears off today!

    It will be once a week for the month of October, and then we'll assess and see what he's up to.

    Wondering whether Ian got you too with its traverse up the east coast. Are you OK? Undamaged?

    I just saw the address. I will mail him a short note and a Doodle and drawing every week, too. Maybe if I send enough Doodles it will aggravate him enough to get him up and out?

    Seriously, I’ll dedicate one day a week to making art and a short note to send.

    I’m terrible on the phone, but I can scribble pretty well.

    You're wonderful. He'll adore the "scribbles", he does some himself, although it's not like he'd want you to know about that.

    Just how long is Jamie expected to be in hospital? Doesn't sound like he is having a good time.

    He claims he doesn't know, and is unclear about what sort of recovery process the doctors and facility are putting him through. We love him, but he does have a tendency to be curmudgeonly, and I'm hoping if we step up and give him some feeling that there's somebody there, he will chill a bit and get clearer about his care and process.

    Also he's in a recovery facility, no longer in the hospital.

    After a long re-routing phone call with Delhi Care center I finally got through to Jamie. He seriously seemed soooooo grateful to hear a friendly voice. He’s been moved to a new ward, they literally referred to him as the New Guy . His new number is 607-464-4414.

    I think this was a great idea lets keep it up. Sad moment was when I said I’ll talk to you next Friday and he said he doesn’t know if he will be here

    FWIW he claimed that he was in a Hospice section so it doesn’t look like he will be recovering and going home anytime soon.

    So does anyone think he could use a Cellular LTE iPad to keep up on the forum, email, etc ? I have an extra one I can send him or would that be a waste ?
