In the past nine months my wife has undergone 3 major surgeries and nine hospitalizations, so in trying to keep things together between work, home, and the hospital I have been unable to get into my workshop, my yard, or any type of extracurricular activity.

Things are looking up my wife is getting healthier and recovering, so I am able to sneak away to play once more in the wonderful world of wood. I look forward to cruising the Lumberjocks site and interacting with everyone here.

I know it was an ordeal that didn’t seem like it would end, and I am glad that it is turning out better for you and your wife. God bless and enjoy your time back to the wood crafting.

Thanks everyone, my wife and I appreciate all of your well wishes she is looking forward to being healthy enough to go to up-state New York at the end of December for the birth of our first grandchild.

No I have got to get into the shop to build a cradle.

I’m glad that your wife is improving and I pray that she will continue heal and I’m also glad that you are able to do some work in your shop because it will be good therapy for you as well.
