Have you been taking your meds as needed? Maybe they need to be increased some?
BTW, last time I saw the light at the end of the tunnel it was …...a train.

I took a look at your profile and quickly understood what your real problem is. Its your location, those state birds buzzing around your head will naturally cause you to be a spaz. LOL That light at the end of the tunnel isn’t really a light its a blank canvas. LOL Try and have a good day, oh and by the way tell your wife those pretend people are really avatars that talk back.

No I know I like him he has the right amount of Redneck with just the right amount of Smart@%! mixed in. Which makes him my brother from another mother! Hey Bro!

And please go see if your meds are right we just met and I don’t want to loose another friend like that. LOL

Thank you for the encouragement and kind responses. Please refrain from the term on “Meds” or any variation there of as this angers my friend Wilson (see pic). He claims he’ll quit talking to me if I medicate and that’s not good for anyone involved.

Made you smile that funny!

That made me laugh so hard it took me forever to type this response.

I wish I had a friend as good as Wilson there. Only friend I have is my 10ER ShopSmith right now and she is all torn up! ( Doing a refurb on her before I use her for the first time.)

Yes that bugger sometimes miss the zapper and zings right into your mouth! It has happened to me several times and usually causes a spitting fit! Just not a pleasant feeling! Keep writing, I enjoyed it!

Thanks for the laugh. I kept thinking of a good joke to tell about the light at the end of the tunnel. I wanted to tell it. It’s too dirty to tell here though. Sorry.

I had to come back to this post after I went to bed last night and thought about an old fishing buddy of mine. He had to wear the AAFH (ankle accessory from hell). This was in Atlanta, Georgia in the early nineties. He was allowed to go certain places, like work, and back home. Then he was allowed one hour a week though to do things like his grocery shopping. I think they allowed this in Atlanta because it is such a large area. Anyway, My AAFH friend loved fishing and was determined for us to find a way for him to at least get a little in here and there.
We came up with a plan. He paid a neighbor kid to do his shopping while we took his hour a week and headed to the closest body of water.
This worked great until he went to see his parole officer. Did you know they could monitor where he went even when he had his hour a week? We didn’t think about that either. My AAFH buddy tried to explain to the nice (yea, right!) gentleman that fishing was like grocery shopping since he didn’t trust the grocery store to keep the fish fresh.
No, the parole officer didn’t buy it either.

AkBob – out of all seriousness (I have no idea how new you are to woodworking), I remember someone stating this, cannot remember who said it but it is something to heed -

Always keep your fingers at least 3” from any moving blade of any kind, once your hands are inside that 3”, have a towel to catch your blood close at hand, maybe a plastic bag to take the cut off piece to have it sown back on.

With that, welcome to LJs.
