Do what you have to do on your end. You have a full plate. This place ain't going anywhere.Your brother-in-law is going through a lot and it will reflect on you. Congratulations on your 51st anniversary.

You don't have to justify your self. Things are going very odd sometimes and one could think it all comes together at once (I'm going my self through such phases on and off). In my feelings, I found that the older you get the more you are thrown into such things (kind of normal, if all of your friends and family members growing older too ;-) ).Such times are time and energy draining and then we have to priorize things and posting and commenting is not very high on that list. So do, what has to be done, stand with your friends and relatives and don't worry about us. We will stand by and "cover your six 'o clock".
I wish you and your wife lots of strength and energy in those times and hope, that your personal health condition got a little better. Anyway congrats to your 51st anniversary (what an achievement)!

Delightful image. My continued best wished for brother-in-law recovery and praise for your support (both emotionally and financially) to his family. Being diabetic, I understand how insidious the condition is... it robs the calcium from your bones as well as slowly devastating your body. Congratulations on your 51st anniversary!

Make sure your Brother is properly dosed with Vitamin D and other fortifying vitamins to keep his bones healthy.
Take time for YOU Rod.
If you come near my gallery, I'll break all your favourite pencils! ROFL!!! (Teasing)
Stay safe and make sure your Sister In Law has moral support too.

She's a delightful pinup. Nice work.
Rod, you really don't need to explain yourself or your absence here on this site. You have a lot going on and you deserve a break and you also deserve to be there for your family with no explanations. I have to disappear when Mom needs more of my time, too, so I know the frustration of missing online things... but we need to tend to Real Life stuff, too, right? We support you whether you're online or not. Take care! I hope your brother-in-law feels better, soon. I'll be thinking of your whole family. Congratulations on 51 years!!!

Great work as always! It certainly sounds like you have so much happening in your life Rod...now may be a good time to take a step back from this site for awhile. At least till all the more important things in your life are given the attention they demand my friend.
No need to apologize for not being here more often...life always finds a way to force us to re-prioritize our life's whether we like it or not. Hang in there buddy and hope for better days ahead! Congrats on your fantastic achievement of 51 years! :-)

Ditto Barb, very well stated...I'm very sorry for your brother-in-law, and for his family. And for Jo and you. I wish him all the best, and real comfort too. Three surgeries are brutal even to a young person, I'm sorry he's had so much. And for you and Jo, it's much more sitting on top of your moving, clearing things out, dealing with the market, etc. I can only wish you the best, and hope that peace and healing dawns on you all.
Also, I have your anniversary written down, I just haven't gotten to a piece yet. I will (I had it down for the 5th, I must've been off by a day). But my deepest congratulations to you both, esp with all you've been through. 51: You two have been together through everything, and for all those years it is so deeply moving. I hope your dinner tonight is terrific, and I wish you and Jo so much happiness, now and in the future. Happy Anniversary!
Finally, your image has beautiful color coordination, your model is posing as in a studio, I love the choice of red hair and lipstick to match the browns. And your light is sweet, with your dramatic shadows. Again you have a photographer's sense of such things. A sweet image---with beautiful contrasting background curtains too (the blues). All my best, Rod, to your brother-in-law, his family, and to you and Jo. Many blessings on your anniversary!

Actually, it is the 5th.. LOL Yeah, we've been through some adventures together - and a lot of good times. Lots of good memories, and more to come. We're both fighters.

.... no rest for the weary, they say. As a follower of history, I tend to agree, noting that from a dog's point of view, a moving target is way more fun than a still one. Your art will be there when you are free to express it, so find your best path

Very lovely pinup! Best wishes for your brother-in-law, and Happy Anniversary!

Sounds like lots going on in your life Rod. Hope the very best for your brother in law and everyone else. Cant believe how much I will need to start paying Medicare. Applied today and OMG! sucks getting old and having to pay these costs.
Your model is so hot an beautiful in your image my friend. Comment when you can. No reason to play catch up on mine my friend.

Great render! Sorry to hear about the health issues your family is having. Hope things will improve for you and your family.

Yep....real life does (and should) take precedence - hope you can return to hobby time soon

Prayers for your brother-in-law that he may receive much needed relief from the pain he is going through! I can't imagine what he is going through but I did have an extremely sore knee after I got my second covid shot that incapacitated me to using a walker for about a week. Fortunately, after getting no help from a chiropractor, I got a prescription for a steroid from my doctor and by some miracle it worked! Okay! Nuff about me! A most wonderful image here! And congratulations on 51 years! Many fine praises and kudos from me!

First off, happy anniversary :) Congrats for keeping it together for all those years...sorry to hear about your brother-in-law--hope he has a speedy and successful recovery.. I've had my own issues these past months, but I guess I'm back. Do take care, Rod.
