Well today is the day before, I go back in the Hospitol tommorow for another Heart Catheter, I seem to be having a little trouble with this ticker, Last August the put in one stint, and they will be checking on it and see if my back vein i still pumping at 56% ir see if I my need another stint back there. If everything is OK I’ll get to come home tommorow, but if they have to do anything, I’ll be staying overnight for observation. All my family is praying that I’ll come out on the better end. My wife and I talked today about the way I have been feeling and acting lately, I know that I have had all the best treatments and surgeries, but being so sick as I have this past year just gets any one down a little. We talked about all the medication that I have to take and will be taking from now on, and I will tell you all ,it just gets to a person after while. Its all to keep me goingand I know this but it’s all to much some time to take in. This morning they brought my electric scooter, so I can get around a little better. I dont need it around the house but we do camping and fishing and its been a lttle hard for me to get around, so they Dr. is just trying to keep me going and trying to get me active as I was. Its hard going from a really active person to one that has to keep a low profile and and not over do it. I got back into wood working, in a way that I am able to do. I have done wood burning before, and thought it would be that nitch that everyone talks about, that I can do. As you all have seen, I used to be really active in producing some really fine pieces of furnature. I Loved making all those and wish I could do it again. I have 2 people waiting on me to get a place set up to where I can produce again, they both want a gun rack and are waiting for me to make. It’s nice have past customers, wait on me to do another piece for them. Well I’ll get off fore now. Keep me in your prayers and thought over the next few days, and I have avery large favor to ask of all of you. I have a sister-in-law that has just found out she has Cancer, and has been sent home per her request, to spend her last days at home. My Brother is trying to hold his own,but I know that this is really tearing him apart, so if you all would keep them in your prayers I sure would appriciate it and thank you. LOVE YOU ALL Jim

Thanks to all of you and I will be back on as soon as I can.
I am working on a piece that I think so far is my hardest one and hope you all like it after it is complete. I have already had a request for my owl by my son for his Birthday. I had to mark up the tree with his and his wifes initials as if they had put them there years ago. After I have completed it I will put it up on my sight. Again thank you for all you prayers. your lumberjock Buddy Jim

jim, my prayers are with you. hope all goes well.
and on the woodburning. have a question. you are using some kind of air cleaner when you burn are you not?
you DO NOT want to breath in the smoke from burning.

not good for you and some woods are toxic if you burn on them.

plywood is nice to burn on some of it. but you do not want to go deep as you hit the glue and that is not good at all.

good luck tomorrow. hugs.

today must be the “tomorrow” already and so I hope that things are going well and that you’ll be back at that woodburning soon.
Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
