I apologize for my absence here lately. I have been working 7 days a week for about a month now. I have also been in the process of starting a new business, Rick’s Rustics is no more, Kruse Custom Creations is the new business.

I am working with a website to expand my market.

But most importantly I have been dealing with some depression from losing my mother and mother-in-law within 2 weeks of each other. This past year has been the roughest for me and my family. I am slowly getting back to normal.

I will try and post more as I do more.

Thanks guys and gals

Glad you are doing better. Time really does heal/help in situations like this. It will get better and back to “normal.” Congrats on the new biz, too !

No apologies due. Life and death has it’s way of changing things. Sorry for your losses Rustic. Condolences to you and your family. One step at a time buddy.
