Thanks, Y'all...


What can I say? Presenting my work to you has been a joy. It's been my privilege to entertain and provoke such a wondrous variety of good souls.

I have every intention to keep swinging for the fences and hope to heaven your participation is rewarded with lively artwork.

Thanks for reminding me, and each other, how a little kindness and encouragement can be inspirational. You're all ACES.

Just now got on and am seeing the tags. God Speed John!!!!

I had my heart attack back in October. Get well.


Yea man, Best Wishes ! I still get a kick out of your April Fool's prank :)


Hey! Get some bed rest! We'll wait! ;)


Prayers and wishes for your full and speedy recovery, John.


In this case, please don't Be Breitbart, ya know?

B Dubya:

I spent a little time on the table on my back with my cardilogist back in '02.

Took the wind out of my sails for about 6 months, though I went back to work the week after the stent was placed.

Take it slow, John. I mean easy. You'll be right soon enough.

Hang in there, pard.


Take care of yourself, John, and know that you are in many good people's prayers.


Take it easy. Wishing you a full & speedy recovery.


I Wish you a fast recovery and no more heart problems (or health).




Thank you for sharing your work, letting us participate a little bit, & for maintaining the forum. Just keep getting better.


I'd like to echo John's sentiment regarding kindness & inspiration. I've been choking on the toxicity of politics as of late. As the subversion of the Lefties is exposed, a number of Righties seem to be in a contest to see who can make the biggest jackass of themselves.

I don't know about you guys, but as Curtis told Jake & Elwood, maybe we "could use some churching up." Here are two versions of an old gospel song I thought fitting--"My Living Shall Not Be In Vain." There are lots of other versions, but these two aren't in the more typical slow, brooding style (with the obligatory Hammond Organ, rolling piano, & vocal gymnastics). I get a little choked up when I listen to some of those--too emotional (& some are just overdone). These two are much warmer.

(2) Tennessee Ernie Ford (with a nice little parable):


I hope you enjoy them--I'd love gospel music (especially black gospel) if I was a rabid atheist.

You and Velociman. You are guys we need to keep around.

Stay well, John.

Sylvia let me know. We are praying for your speedy recovery so that you'll be back, all flinty and redolent of lintseed oil, very soon! xoxo

We are praying for your speedy recovery so that you'll be back, all flinty and redolent of linseed oil, very soon! xoxo

Candice Dyer:

So sorry for the redundancy -- was trying to correct "linseed." (I think I had "lint-head" swirling in my brain.) Edit me, John! And feel better.


Hello Mr Cox--

Glad to hear that you are on the mend-- I'll keep you in my prayers. Each day is a blessing and a gift.

David B:


Damn, I take a few days away for work and come back to this?

Dude, I am so glad you are doing better, plan on getting better and I wish you all the best in your efforts. Your talents and fun quips would have been sorely missed. Hang tough and keep it up!


Once again, get well soon, and best wishes!
