    Dan Johnston Update!!!!

    I just talked to (@Danjohnston949) Dan Johnston's wife Eunice. He recently had quite a bout with pneumonia. Dan spent 9 days in the hospital and is now back to a nursing home. He is very weak and tired right now and unable to go on the AR Pitmaster Site. However Eunice said he hopes to be back on soon. A assured her that we would keep them in our thoughts and prayers and hope for a good recovery.
