I know, it's okay, I know what I own, I just don't know why I own it. For the money I have in it I could have a nice TJ or something that at least I wouldn't have to worry 'is it going to make the trip?'

Went straight to UMC after work. Just got home. My guy is doing better. Critical still but no longer unstable. He is still sedated (read medically induced coma) but his blood work and EEG look better so they are going to pull him out tomorrow. So far everything looks like he will be okay.

Agreed. I've seen TJ's in there with no rock sliders. It's cringe time waiting for the body damage to occur. I got off the line a bit near the glider sign and almost trashed my hard top.

Hope your troop gets better Andy.

As many people on here know, I am not a big fan of the new rubi wheels even though I do have two sets of them. But I saw a lifted JKU today with 35's on the new rubi wheels and I think that they look way better with the larger tires. I am just not sure that I will ever take the plunge and get a lift though with this being a DD and our only vehicle right now.

What happened to your Jetta? Oh, wait...

Thank you all for all the well wishes for my troop. He is really one of my best workers and an overall great guy. They say that some people in a coma can still hear you and can recall entire conversations from when they were out. I talked to him for a bit. Everything from baseball and offroad racing to current events. I hope it makes him a bit more comfortable.

So I start my shift to find out that my boss died last night or early this morning. We weren't very close, and had differences on the job. We got along well enough and had similar political and social views, but different personalities. It is still a shock when death comes close to home/work.

Preliminary reports indicate suicide, with the 5yr old son hearing it, but not seeing it. The 18yr old daughter wasn't home. I hope I never feel like that's my only option...it's so terrible for the family that's left behind. It's probably the worst thing you can do to everyone you know. It leaves everyone wondering if it was something they said or did, and offers a "never closure" situation, even if a note is left.

Next, I find out that the other lead(day shift, I'm the night lead) is in the hospital with what is likely gastrointestinal issues(colitis) and we don't know when he's coming back. He's had these issues before and for a while, but it takes him longer to recover each time. He's mid thirties, around 5'8" and probably weighs 110lbs on a good day.

Life is such a precious, fragile thing that is just a flicker of a flame. We should all try to be kind to others and truly attempt to live life to its fullest. Do whatever it takes to not have regrets in life. Not necessarily internal regrets, but things you regret saying/not saying to someone, and/or doing/not doing for/with/to someone. Try not to get caught up in things that don't matter, like possessions, social media, and television. Live your life, don't just survive it!

We all don't really understand how lucky we are sometimes. We obsess over things we want or things we can't change. The time is now to understand how truly short life is, and start living it like you have no brakes, because in the whole scheme of things, you really don't!

Powr is right. the only thing in life that is promised is death. So you have to live it to the fullest. Please don't go running around screaming yolo though.

Well put powr well put.

Andy sorry to hear about your coworker, very tragic that it happened to him. But sounds like he'll be just fine and come out good as new.
