Hi All,
I have been absent for quite a while due to illness. Have been down with Bronchitis and had depression set in because of it. I’m finally beginning to feel better and getting back on my feet again.

I’ve missed being in the shop and went out to the shop the other day only to find that the shop is a mess. I forgot that I hadn’t clean up before getting sick. So I’m slowly getting things back in order so I can start working in the shop again. Its a bit overwhelming but am slowly getting things cleaned up. Its going to take awhile with spring around the corner and so many outside things that need to be done as well.

Just thought I’d say hi and let you know that I have missed being with you all here at LJ’s.

-- I don't make mistakes, I have great learning lessons, Greg

Hi Greg;

I’m erxactly where you are now….I’ve had Bronchitis, Pneumonia, the flu, and a touch of emphysima to boot…..I had to go to the doctor twice and get a steriod shot, some antibiotics, and a breather like people with asthma have…I’ve had this crap for about 3 weeks, and can’t seem to shake it….My wife said I was out of my head for 2-3 days…..I told her I’m that way all the time….:) I’m still not up to “snuff” as my grandma used to stay, but gaining on it….It can sure knock you back a loop or two…It will take us a while before we’re normal again (if that’s possible)...Get well, take it nice and slow, and have a toddy before bedtime…it seems to help me…...lol. Get plenty of rest, take a nap, and get stronger…..Maybe we won’t die, afterall…lol.

Thanks all,
Taking it easy and it sure can get frustrating when your slow to begin with.
Yes Rick, I also have emphysema not to mention many other ailments.
