You’ve been missed.
A long string of circumstances has kept me away for awhile. It started with a nasty computer virus ( a new one spreading through PDF’s) that hosed both my home and work computers. Coincidentally I started a rigorous balance training/therapy regimen in an attempt to get myself back to normal (or as close to it as possible). It seems to be working and that has allowed me to get back to doing many of the things that had previously been difficult. I have a extremely long list of things that have added up over the last few years and I’ve been able to finally start getting them done. It’s also resulted in a rekindling of an old love for the water. Part of my therapy is using my standup paddleboard as frequently as possible. 8 hours plus of paddling/week, another 6 of workouts, and all the other things (damn that work thing gets in the way) doesn’t leave much time. The end result is that I’ll be spending less time on LJ.
I’ll still be here when I have time and hopefully once I get caught up I can start to be a frequent contributor again. LJ has become one of the premier woodworking sites on the web and I’ll always consider many of you my friends. I’‘ll see you around.
