Two days ago I sent him an email re his 'incomplete paperwork' and now await his reply.
Ping. (That was quick! Actually, it arrived yesterday).
His emails reads as follows:
Okay, not exactly what I was expecting (e.g., it's not "Hey Gord. You are such a hoot!") but at least I know he is alive and well and connected to a viable email address.
As per his request, I clarified:
Thank you for your prompt reply and enquiry, Joe.
Usually, I wouldn't bother with details related to documents that go as far back as 1969, but while reviewing a photo journal recently (i.e., Spectrum, 1970) related to your year at Elwood College, I noticed that my staff thoroughly explained the paperwork in question and you still failed to sign it, leaving you one credit short, as per first email.
["Sign both at the bottom. What could be
easier?" says Sec. Elizabeth Brebeuf]
As the new Elwood College Judge and Arbitrator I feel it is my responsibility to get this houseful of unsigned documents in order. Current policies are much stricter than in the past re verifying teaching qualifications. I suggest we sit down soon to review your case file.
How far are you from Jasper?

Now, let's wait and see what happens.
