From Wanda (Steve's wife):

Well folks…. been a busy 48 hours at the Elliott house…
Steve is at Martha Jefferson Hospital recovering from major abdominal surgery due to infection. Will not share the details here but he requests visitors wait until Thursday as surgery was at 2300 last night. He is resting well and pain meds are good. View attachment 14577
We praise God for the outcome and are so grateful for all the Prayer Warriors who are covering us on this journey. The road to recovery will be long but the outcome will be amazing!
Probably here until Saturday or later. Stay tuned!
Much love to all

Ray, thank you for posting this latest update from Steve's wife.

Brief update; Steve says he may be going home from the hospital Monday (8/16), or Tuesday (8/17).

One of his good friends, Frank Donohue (fdce54), suggested that he begin taking one liquid ounce of what is called "Willy D's Special Homemade Elixer Mix".

Possible side effects might be, "it could burn the hair off your head, but sure to give you that over all feeling of - Strong Like Bull".

All the Best Steve

All,

Thank you for the well wishes and prayers. Quite an unexpected turn for my family and I. All of your call, emails, texts and messages have gone a long way in helping us all in beginning days of recovery and getting back to normal, whatever normal is these days. Please keep the prayers and thoughts coming our way as we take this 1 day at a time. One of the instructions when I was discharged: Stay away Uncle Willy's Magic Elixir!

Steve Elliott

In our General Category section - in "Training & Seminars" the topic of The Floor Below is discussed with a reply by our own "Johnny Gage".

Following that, we see a reply to Johnny's statement by "soda-acid" (reply # 3) saying; "The infamous masked man".

Is it possible that before the days of TVs Emergency Series, in which Johnny Gage was the star of the show, could perhaps Mr Gage have been the star actor in the "masked man" TV Western Series called; "The Lone Ranger".

Could it be ?

On September 22nd, Hurricane Henri hit the State of Rhode Island with some serious wind damage and trees down.

As a result, one of the Top Ten (10) Tree Climbers on the East Coast responded to assist in that area. From Maine to Florida, our very popular Raybrag's son responded. He is well known though out the country for his expertise.

Last year he responded to, and spent one month in Louisiana and Alabama, after damaging hurricanes there. No doubt he is headed there to assist after Hurricane Ida just stuck those same areas again.

We can only hope and pray that those in the area, both residents and first responders will be okay and somehow those affected will be able to recover from this latest devastating hurricane.

In addition to that, as they say: "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree". I mean that our Nycfire.net member, "Raybrag" himself was also involved in hurricane work. No, it wasn't climbing trees, but in his Air Force military days, he would fly into the hurricanes to give reports on it's latest developments.

We often overlook those who are behind the scenes, risking their lives during such hurricane events.

Special Thank you to both father and son Braguglia, for the years of service they have given to the millions of people who depend/depended on the special kind of work they have done.

If you look back to the very first post on this forum started by WillieD he congratulated me on my daughters marriage in 2013. Well they have two beautiful children and live in south Jersey. Tonight just before 6PM, a tornado touched down and leveled their house. Fortunately, they were in the basement and a neighbor was able to help them out. Every one got out safely TG A tornado was the last thing I would ever think of . They are showing damage there now on the Weather channel

Stay safe everybody
