    I used to talk with Greybeard all the time on here and on Waterfowler.net. I see he was on here last in December 2015. Anybody know anything?

    I was thinking about him the other day. The thread on the main forum about the guys that kept this place hopping during the early days got me thinking about the ones here on the 'Fuge that have disappeared. I saw Buckduck in my office a couple of weeks ago. Same character but like many the ravages of health and time have taken waterfowling from him.

    I was thinking about Dan the other day.
    One of his son's lives here in Chilli.
    I'l see if I can get ahold of him and see what's going on.

    The last email I sent his son that works for the State, he mentioned something to the effect that Dan wasnt trying to hard to get better ( please dont quote me as I'd hate to be wrong for something I am not 110% sure of ).... not a "giving up" attitude, but something along those lines.

    I asked his boy to tell him that those of here at the "Fuge" said "hello".

    I think "cootmeurer" that posts here from time to time may know more or at least be a better contact person.

    I miss Dan's post's.

    I don't want to give away family details - but my last chat with his middle son was not a positive one. Physical health still seems to be acceptable.
