I have been really busy with contracts this last month +. I did catch up on about 30 pages a couple of weeks ago, but today was almost overwhelming!! Wish I had time to comment on more of them, but the volume is too high. I have had a few LJs wondering where i went. Just to work for a little while ;-) Hopefully I’ll be back to fiddling with wood in a few more days.

I can sure relate to work taking up so much time, now that the flooding is easing up here I actually got to step inside my shop this weekend! Hope you manage to get into the shop soon.

Glad to see you back on the site Bob. Also glad to here that you’ve been busy at work too. There are a lot of new LJs with new projects worth seeing. And a couple old guys still making cool stuff. I’ve even posted a couple more but nothing special.

I was wondering if you were taking a long vacation from LJ.

Had the same problem with shop time, when summer comes around there just seems to be so much needing done.

Even my retired friends never seem to have enough time.

It is really difficult to keep up with all the activity nowadays Bob with so many members posting. I just comment on those posts that catch my attention the most. This means often passing up a lot of posts that really deserve a good word and some encouragement. Time is a factor too in Summer when there is so much to do around the house.

Topo, just remember that work is the curse of the drinking class. Glad you able to get out and make
some more money for woodworking toys that you can enjoy when things slow down. Now if we could
just get some warm spring weather we could enjoy the sunshine, I checked and Auburn seems to be
just a little cloudier and has more rain that Missoula, but that means I can play in the shop and watch
the liquid sunshine outside.

Topo, I know the feeling! Add the fact that I have slow dial up connection and you can imagine my frustration!

It has been wetter and cooler than normnal here this spring. But, we usually have rain or showers, clouds and sunshine everyday ;-)

Hopefully I won’t get so far behind again. It is nice to see lots of good projects and ideas posted.

David, Does that mean I will have immortality if I don’t live forever?
