After being layed up for over 10 weeks I am finally getting back to work! I have worked in Lowe’s tool department for over a year and planning on going back again part time. My wife wants 120 feet of picket fence and two arbors built for the garden. Before I got layed up I was building an entertainment center which needs to be finished. I want to build my shop cabinets and buy the rest of my equipment and finish setting up the shop. These things should keep me busy for the next couple of months. I just wanted to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers while I was on the mend.

God Bless

This is great to hear, Tom. Getting back into the shop sounds like a nice way to get back into the swing of things.

Glad to hear you are back up and running. But don’t go too fast. Need to build stamina also.

Hi Tom, Glad to have you back up and running again. Can’t keep a good man down. Always glad to get your messages on projects and life. You inspire me to try harder. I think I will post my latest project sometime today. Another solar energy project. Take care my friend and ease on into things and not all at once. Bye and God Bless you and yours.

Glad to hear you’re back on your feet. You must be in pretty good shape if the “Honey-do’s ” are starting to pile up. Good luck.
