After being off work for about 2 years. I am now working again. 4:30 am to 3 pm. Got this job last week just as my unemployment ran out. Whew talk about cutting it close. I will be in and out of the shop as time permits. I have 2 projects that I will be posting soon.

of to relax. Thanks to all the LJ’s for your love and support during this trying time for me. You guys and gals are the best.

Congrats! Being out of work sucks. Hope what you found is close to what you had as far as pay and benefits.
