Default Trying to get back at it

Hey guys and gals!

It's been a while since I last posted here. I kinda lost my desire to do anything for a while......I lost my wife to a heart attack back in February. Consequently, I have had other things I needed to concentrate on.

But, I did make a few signs that I had already committed to and I want to thank my customers for their patience.

Long story short.....like a bad habit I am back.....as best I can be any way. Making of sawdust is a therapy session for me so I plan to get back into it.

One of the signs I made was a temporary marker for my wife's grave until her headstone is set in late July. I was limited to the size I could make for her by cemetery association rules. The other is a sign for me to hang on my awning when I go camping.....a niche market I may try to infiltrate.

So take a few extra "tolerance pills" because I'm making a return to these pages. LOL

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

Sorry to hear about your wife's passing Frank , but glad to hear your getting back into making sawdust again .
I sure like that "Welcome to Pops" sign you made . Sounds like a market with some potential

A tough thing to go through. That is a very nice marker. Look forward to seeing you up and running again.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.
