I third that motion, Jim needs his rest, and we should be able to manage while he is gone. __________________

Meantime, he can still type!! __________________

New car you say? In similar circumstances I myself have had several illnesses that prevented me from going to work. Trust we'll see Jim feeling better and up to his usual monkeyshines soon. __________________

Jim is a hoot and I wish him well. He is easily the most entertaining host on the SNBC network, and a pleasure to buy from, but I'll buy a watch from the devil himself if it's one I want and the price is right !!! __________________

I dont buy a watch for the host but I sure watch a lot more when Jim is on. Jim is entertainment as well as sales. Hard to do that when you cant talk. __________________

I was kinda hoing Jim might come in here and write a little poetry while under the

influence of medication. It's alway good to see people in a good mood.


That's why I like to watch Jim and Mike "play." It looks like play instead of work, because they're enjoying the time they spend doing something they love. I'm really glad that there is a place to meet, here, because these guys LOVE this hobby.

I do what I love for a living, and fully understand __________________

I LOVE all the watch show hosts and yes ...I too don't have to turn the volume down while Mr. Skelton is off healing. And I pray for his renewed health. Owlwatch View Public Profile Send a private message to Owlwatch Find all posts by Owlwatch Add Owlwatch to Your Contacts #21 Yesterday, 02:33 PM

I'm sure Jim is intelligent enough not to jepordize his career by disobeying his doctors.

I am sure that Jim is very frustrated and upset about having to be at home and not at work. It only takes a little bit of common sense to realized that a person's health is worth more then any watch you can buy. Jim, I wish you a speedy recovery, we will all survive until you return. Come back when you are really ready and forget about those that have their priorites first in mind. You are number one to you, remember that.

I'm certain Mr. Jim feels bad about missing Mr. Wing's predator TTV, the Stuhrlings and certainly the Invictas that have come through the Must Watch event. But as has been pointed out by those wise watchgeeks in this forum, while this is a hard time for Mr. Jim, it is but a 'speck' on the mosaic of his career. We won't forget Mr. Jim and when he comes back, and is 100%, it will just be that much better! devlinfaust View Public Profile Send a private message to devlinfaust Find all posts by devlinfaust Add devlinfaust to Your Contacts #25

I hope Jim takes his time and takes care of himself. In my experience nearly everything's else pales in comparison to the value of one's health. Regarding the other stuff.....I too am attracted to watches that sing to me; that's why I tend to hang out in seedy wristwatch karaoke bars. __________________ "Of all of the tyrannies that affect mankind, tyranny of religion is the worst."

jskelton WatchGeeks Owner True WatchGeek

Thanks guys, but really... there's no need to be concerned. My life is absolutely normal aside from the sprain. This only limits how long I can talk, and what kind of foods I can eat... I am able to do everything else normally.


My jaw is finally coming along, I was able to close my mouth fully yesterday for the first time in about 3 weeks (rear molars will now touch). Sorry that I've been absent from the forum over the last few days. Apparently this has spread rumors like wildfire. Something about my contract being up... don't believe what you read, there is absolutely NO such thing as a 9 month contract, more BS from someone who has not one ounce of actual knowledge or facts about me or the industry that I work in. I have spent a lot of time with my family, which as you know, I don't get the chance to do nearly enough. I'm on-air about 30 hours a week, on the forum about 30-40 hours a week, plus FB, work email with viewers, and all my photography... I haven't had much time for my family over the last 2 years. Since I am on medical leave, it gives me a lot more time with them, and I enjoy it. Also, 2 of the days were spent at the car dealership (they always seem to take forever don't they?), so I could only update to my FB because it's easy on the iPhone. Nothing to worry about, never was... doubtful that there ever will be. At this point I am hopeful to return to work on the 14th or 15th, but I can only work 1-2 hours at a time. If I jump back in full force, I can of course re-sprain the joint and I'm back where I started. It's funny, when I post up full details about any long term absence, it's mocked elsewhere because they say I'm doing a "woe is me", yet those same people now are balking because I HAVEN'T been very vocal about my condition and updates. Shows the mentality I have to deal with over the internet huh? No skills require small brains... or something to that effect. Super skills require bigger rumors? Wait... oh forget it I'll be back soon, and thank you to those who have messaged and posted. I apologize for not being more attentive. I'm just simply enjoying many of the important things in life with my family lately, and spending less time online. __________________

Yes... I've had an operation myself. If you don't follow the Post-Op orders by the surgeon, one might get into trouble!!! We all wish him the best. And it's up to others to fill in and keep the show going. Our best wishes to Jim Skelton!! __________________ "Don't sweat the small stuff?!?
