I donít want to use this Board for personal messages but so many people have called or otherwise inquired and used this Board to comment, that I feel in this case it is appropriate. As most of you know, I have not done well this past year on the Thompson stuff primarily because of my failed eyesight. There have been rumors that I will quit altogether. Fortunately, thanks to a cornea organ donor, a plastic implanted lens and the medical staff at Cedars-Sinai, three operations later, I can now see again. I was beginning to wonder if I would actually ever see well enough to make my Thompson products. I am not out of the woods yet. I still have stitches in my eye. But now it seems that by the end of the year I will have good vision. I will not be able to catch up over night but at least I will get back into production. Your patience and good wishes have greatly appreciated. Right now Iím on my way to Belize (Central America) but I plan on being back for the SAR show in Phoenix.
