Probably no one noticed, but I was not on this thing for about a week. The computin’ machine broke. I took it to the repair shop and the guy called and started out,” Well, the mother…” I cut him off and explained that we don’t talk that way around here. He then explained that my mother board took a dump. So I got a new mother board, a new mouse and a new key board. Boy, does this thing fly or what? Of course, I’ll never get caught up on all the projects and blogs I missed. If you posted something you think I should look at, send me a PM and I’ll get right to it. I hate to miss what my friends post.

Any way, if you haven’t noticed, I haven’t been posting much. The reason is that, I have work in the saddle shop and am not building anything in the wood shop. I guess time will tell where the next dollar will come from. We are still eating way too much and working full time so all is well. I’m glad to be back.

It is kinda funny. Only yesterday, was wondering where you’ve been. Figured you had enough of some of the goofy stuff going on here.

I think Martin has taken control and mended a couple of them while you were broke down.

Welcome back, Tom. Glad it was only a week you were away. I’ve been a little scarce myself.

I just checked your posting stats this morning, thinking to myself that I hadn’t seen a Tangle posting for awhile (although I did see your review on FWW last week :D). Glad things are well and there is still food on the table.

Glad to see you’re back and it wasn’t anything I said. :-) Seriously glad it was only a computer problem keeping you away. Looking forward to your postings.

Tom, it’s good to have you back. I was going to send out a search party, but they couldn’t find Jordan Valley on the map! I saw “broke down” in the title and thought I was going to have to come and give you a ride somewhere.

Hi Thomas,

Glad to have you back as well. We managed to keep the reviews current while you were gone but it was a challenge to cover for you. Thanks goodness you are back now and can get back to work. :)

It is tough to keep current with the posts and find some shop time. There are just so many posts coming now that keeping current is becoming a full time occupation. ‘

Welcome back.

Hi Tom

Glad to have you back! We lost one of our computers last week to. The old girl died and went to the big computer store in the sky. My wife and I have been like two little kids fighting over the other one that was left. The new one is coming in today. How did we ever get along with out them.

God Bless
