Sigh, I guess I was too naive. I had hoped that people would honor my request to keep this on this blog. But it got posted on Byrne Robotics forum. It is no longer there but the damage has been done. I hope Joe does not get too many crazies sending him email. Anyway I felt I had to remove Joe’s email address before any more harm was done. Anyone still wishing to send Joe birthday greatings can email me athmendryk at yahoo dot com and I will provide it privately.
It seems a list called Imvan has also ignored my request to keep this on this blog. I have no idea what that group is about but obviously they have little respect. I guess I am going to have to file this as one of my worse ideas.
I visit Joe every two or three weeks and he seems in excellent health. His birthday is approaching so I have a special request to make to the readers of the Simon and Kirby Blog. Actually it is a two part request.
- I would like to keep this request and Joe’s email address here, and not have it posted to any other group, blog or list.
- I would like my readers to send happy birthday greetings to Joe sometime between now and his birthday (October 11). Say what you like but I am sure Joe would appreciate a kind word about what his work has meant to you. His email is:
Surely my readers are also fan’s of the work done by Simon and Kirby. We no longer have the opportunity to tell Jack what he meant to us, but it is not too late for Joe.
