Phantom, Where Are You?

As many of you probably know Phantom_Driver stopped blogging and commenting across the blogoshpere without warning a week ago. Now his profile and his blog appear to have been deleted. He is an old man, his son is in Iraq and I am worried about him. Any news on his condition would be most welcome.


  • As I said in answer to you on My Republican Blog, I've been concerned about Phantom since Monday. He was a person who blogged every day. I have added him to my prayers. Thank you for posting this.

    We may never know what has happened to Phantom, but it must be something really drastic, as he would never have deleted his entire blog otherwise. I feel a great loss as it was as if we knew him personally.

  • That guy defended me on my blog quite a bit. I hope he's okay.

  • Do we know his email or son's email?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:19 AM  

  • I don't have his e-mail, or his son's e-mail. I doubt if any of us do. Another blogger has gone missing: Mike at "Mike's Good Ones" which I vited frequently. Just gone without any explanation whatsoever.

  • That was supposed to read "visited" frequently. I'm a little upset!

  • RE: Email - every time I ever posted a comment I would recieve a delivery failure error. He must have had it turned on to be notified of new comments, but the email was not valid. Unfortunately that means that the email address that was in his blogger profile wasn't valid. I am afraid I am of no help here. I will join you all in voicing your concerns and well wishing.

  • So now three bloggs have just disappeared. I smell fox in the chicken coop!

  • I just did a copy and paste backup job into word to all my posts. I don't want to lose everything if my blogs get deleted.

  • Hello friends,

    Thanks for all the thoughtfullness, I should have mentioned I would be in Buffalo about 300 miles from here working on install for relatives who have no computer. All this came about at the last minute.

    I put in 4 18 hour days and still have to go back up there tomorrow with more parts.

    The job quickly expanded from one install to 3 more. Relatives operate a burgeoning horse boarding business and their clients after seeing the first 10 KW generator I put in wanted gensets in their own places.

    Buffalo winter weather is very bad as you may know, but it's been 60's and wonderful so I'm making hay while the sun shines.

    Today's regulations require that barns be wired with explosion-proof wire, fittings, lights, switches, so that's adding to the complexity and expense of the jobs and time.

    I've had to find a nephew here to go back with me or I'll be 3 weeks up there. These young guys can climb all those ladders whilst I bend the conduit, etc.

    Thanks to all here. Warms my heart to know I'm missed.

    Re: Somthing has happened to my complete blog, and from reading comments apparently either Blogger
    is messing up or someone's hacking.

    Could be either.

    When I get back (hopefully one more week) I'll get back on the air somehow.

    Please spread the word. I had no idea I was so popular :-) Thanks for the prayers, especiall for LT Adam, who's due home shortly after Christmas. He's in a relatively safe area now until the end of his tour.

    Thanks everyone, I am able to get email thru a Blackberry device.

  • Good to hear from you phantom -
    we'll look forward to you gettin' back to blasting libs(hopefully, soon)!
    Tell your son Good luck/God bless from all of us bloggers!

    I was wondering about Jeff, too. He used to comment on my blog a lot, but now I can't access his blog or profile.

  • Phantom,
    Great to hear from you my friend! I was getting a bit worried there. I look forward to your return.

  • Yay, Phantom's back. Or at least he will be in a week.


    By Blogger Gayle, at 6:32 PM  

  • PD, I'm very glad to hear from you. I look forward to you having a blog again, albeit a new one.
