Update on The Junctioneer

This is a note to the readers of The Junctioneer.  As you have noticed, posts have not been made for several weeks.  The Junctioneer, Robert is currently in the hospital with a very serious condition called Guillain Barre Syndrome .   If anyone wishes to post best wishes to Robert, I will be sure to read them to him.



I'm sorry to hear about your illness. I've recently discovered this great blog. Thanks for all your work and dedication to the community.

The Fighter

fight a battle every day
Against discouragement and fear;
Some foe stands always in my way,
The path ahead is never clear!
I must forever be on guard
Against the doubts that skulk along;
I get ahead by fighting hard,
But fighting keeps my spirit strong.

hear the croakings of Despair,
The dark predictions of the weak;
I find myself pursued by Care,
No matter what the end I seek;
My victories are small and few,
It matters not how hard I strive;
Each day the fight begins anew,
But fighting keeps my hopes alive.

y dreams are spoiled by circumstance,
My plans are wrecked by Fate or Luck;
Some hour, perhaps, will bring my chance,
But that great hour has never struck;
My progress has been slow and hard,
I've had to climb and crawl and swim,
Fighting for every stubborn yard,
But I have kept in fighting trim.

have to fight my doubts away,
And be on guard against my fears;
The feeble croaking of Dismay
Has been familiar through the years;
My dearest plans keep going wrong,
Events combine to thwart my will,
But fighting keeps my spirit strong,
And I am undefeated still!

Robert, you have done so much for this community, please keep in mind that we expect more of the same, please work on getting healthy again, everyone is rooting for you.
Stay strong for your family
Big hugs

Robert, I hope you get better soon. Your contributions help make The Junctioneer a great forum and resource for people in the neighbourhood.

We're all pulling for you! You're missing out on a busy week in the Junction. I'm sure lots of us are photographing the silos coming down and new stores popping up.

I am a regular cruiser of the Junctioneer. Cruising isn't as special without your tidbits.
I am at a roadblock till your back at the helm.

Robert, just to let you know that you and your family are thought of every day. The very best wishes for a speedy recovery and good health. I'm confident we'll see you in the Junction soon. God Bless.

Hi Robert,
Like everyone else, I wish you a speed recovery and I thank you for all the
great work you have done to make The Junction such a wonderful community.
So sorry to hear you are ill.

Raymond…great idea! If any one wants to creat a post and send it to the blog as a comment, I will then cut and paste it into the Junctioneer (this might be the easiest way as I have limited access to the management toolsof the blog).

Hope your recover soon and looking forward to more great posts, information and insight. Get well soon and best wishes for a speedy recovery!

Robert, The Junction community wants to see another Junction Art Festival organized by you. So you better get well soon……..Best wishes for a speedy recovery!
