I gave Dad the book earlier this afternoon. As expected he cried, a lot. He has chosen St. Jude Children's Hospital as the charity he would like the proceeds from the shirts and stickers to go to. 

Thank you to everyone who has purchased a shirt or stickers. The money raised will continue to go to charity, and photos will be added to the Dead Skunk Motorsports Facebook page.

I visited Dad on Monday afternoon and had a good long chat with him. I showed him the photos that have come in since the book was made and he was talking about how great all the GRM guys are.

I made the charitable donation in Dad's name to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital on July 1st. $364 from t-shirts and stickers, a large portion of which was from you guys here. Proceeds will continue to be donated as they come in.

He has continued to make improvements in physical therapy; walking further with the aid of a walker, climbing small steps, and a bunch of other tasks that were impossible when he first started. His white blood cell count has shown improvement, but without a bone marrow test, it's impossible to know if it's the leukemia subsiding or if the white cell injections he's getting help to boost that number. They won't do a bone marrow test until ALL his numbers are up; white, red, and hemoglobin.

He is about a month out from being released home (Medicare only covers so long for in-patient rehab), so you'll likely be seeing a lot more of him online soon.

My son took this a while back. I thought I posted it but obviously never hit the post button. 
 


 

Edit:  Not sure I have posted a photo of me here before.  Well now you all get to see my ugly mug.

Completely stock as delivered in 2007 car. Needs a new ECM at the moment that I will be upgrading the mounting of to prevent a repeat of it failing. Other than that it is a great fun car to drive and hall stuff. Even though it is basically a GM car it has a enough Saab in it to make the driving experience really good.  
 

It has the beginnings of the valve issues that plague these cars making it a sob to start in really cold weather. Other than that it has been a really good car. I would highly recommend.
