Mack's uncle, Henry, the artist painted the oil painting he's holding here. Henry is also a very accomplished guitarist and pianist. He once tried to play the violin, but Richard and a few other folks convinced Henry that he needed lots of practice and that he really should stick to the guitar and piano instead.

The entire Manor/Lackey family, including Mack, is very artistic and musically inclined.

Henry rides a 2005 Harley Softail Deluxe. Richard rides an electric-blue 2001 Honda Goldwing and baby sister, Carol Sue rides a Harley Sportster. Her husband, Kevin Bennett, rides a Harley 883 Sportster.

Richard's band, "Southern Cross" has played together for about 6 years. Richard plays the drums and they play mostly 70's & 80's classic southern rock. Their latest gig has been at Randzz this past weekend. Their next gig is the Rives Ruritan Club Steak Fest in Prince George on September 30th. This will be the 4th year in a row they've been asked to play there. The folks out there love them! Band members are Scott Seeley, Lara and Kevin Spain, Dennis Haraway, Rusty Holland and Richard Manor.

There hasn't been much to update regarding Mack for the past several days. He is still in a coma and in the ICU isolation room because of the MRSA virus he contracted several days ago. Richard and I went up there today around noon hoping to talk with one of the doctors to get an update, but no one will be available until Tuesday because of the holiday weekend. The nurse is going to shave Mack this afternoon, with Belinda's help, because we told her that Mack has never liked to wear a beard or mustache. It itches him.
I don't know who put Magic (Mack's magician puppet) in a neck brace, but we thought it was cute. Now all Magic needs is a soft arm splint, booties and a bandage on his right knee to match Mack's.

All the best to our friends and neighbors,
Ruth & Richard
