Hi! folks, Happy Mothers day to all the ladies!
Because of my health, I may have to sell everything in the shop. I am just trying to get a feel as to whether anyone here at lumberjocks may be interested before I go to the trouble to list everything? I will not break up the tools and equipment and it will include the metal casework cabinets. It will include the complete shop. If I sell ? I will make worth the trip and truck rental or you could have a moving company to move it. If I get a good response? I will get a complete list and photos together and run it in the forums. You can go to my shop photos and take the tour to get a basic idea of what will be sold.
God bless
Hey! Gang
I appreciate all of the well wishes. You don’t know how much they mean to me. I do not plan on leaving the site. I consider that I have a lot of freinds here. I live in a two story house and I am going to be forced to sell and go to a one floor plan. I’ll get back to posting when I get to feeling a little better. Especially with your prayers and help. May God bless you each!
God bless

This is a tough one for me Gene. I’ve noticed that you’ve not been posting much. Really tough…... you were the first LJ to make me feel at home here when I first joined. Good luck. Even if you do sell your shop, you can still hang out with us can’t you?

Gene, I think we need to just pray for your good health before you have to make this drastic step. You know what you need to do and I know God has a plan for you and yours.

Same here as juniorjock, you were the first one to really make me feel welcome and feel like part of the community. I’ve noticed that you’ve not been posting lately also, I will pray for your good health though.

You might sell your shop, but you’re stuck with the REAL tools, mon ami. The one’s in your head and I think I can speak for all of us LJs when I say, stick around, Gene, we’re not done with you yet!

always,

Gene, This is so tough. I’m just so sorry to hear about your health. If you sell most of your tools, keep a few favorites for good old time’s sake. I’m wishing you the best health in the future!

The good thing here is tools can be replaced. You never know what the future holds when good old faith is applied. We work with solid wood. God works with solid Faith. (Called substance.)

God Bless you, Gene. I think of Gregory and you often, and your goodness shines through everything you have done here. My prayers are with you.
