    I took Lessons from Tenbears a couple years ago. And became a bit of a friend. Or so I thought. I was in His area, and decided to stop by his shop. It was closed. I mean closed up. I went by his sporting goods shop, And it had new Owners, same with his Scuba Shop, A fellow there told me That he Tragically lost his wife and Son little over a year ago. The guy said he heard Tenbears sold everything, and just Vanished.
    Is that so. Thought I read hear one time that tenbears and George were friends, George Do you Know what happened to him. I sure liked him, and appreciated his taxidermy experience. I hope he is all right.

    I remember seeing that name on here a lot before this "new" format took over. I often wondered how he was doing? I'm glad you brought up the question. If what you heard was true, I'm sorry to hear that about him. Hope he is alright where ever he may be.

  4. You should remember, he was shot during an attack several years back. He survived that.

    I haven't heard from him in ages. I guess I spent so much time on my own issues I haven't kept up with a LOT of people who are special to me. Tenbears always was a straight shooter with no bs and the integrity of a saint.

    Well I really wish someone knew something, an address. or something. If anyone hears anything I would really appreciate it if they would post it here, or PM me. It's funny when I was taking lessons from him. I told him I would like to come back and get refreshers, or a little advanced training. he said sure. but all my students say that. you will get busy, and learn a lot on your own. unless we meet at a show or something. you will fade into the bustle of business. and I will be but a faded old memory. Guess we all fade into obscurity.

    I hope you are able to find him, and when you do, you will have to give an update as to how he is doing.

    Obviously his persona in person was no different that how he expressed himself here. I, too, hope you can find him.
