On the 3rd David Craig and Rick Kruse came to my house to help clean my workshop/ 2 1/2 car garage. We surely bit off more than we could handle in a days time. We pulled out, let me change that, David, mostly, with a little help from Rick and I, pulled most of the stuff out sorted all my wood, restacked it, moved my machines around where I could pull them out and use them, sorted my wood so I know what I have, swept, lifted, tugged, pulled, helped rip a 7’ long X
3 1/2” thick X 3 1/2’ wide solid walnut board, and helped my wife get dinner ready for us to eat, oh yea, and got a bon fire going for his two boys and my grandson later. I’m not saying Rick and I didn’t work, but there was no way we could keep up with the man. Rick and I just wore out about 5 hours earlier. He and his sons left close to 11:00pm, and he shook my hand, said he’d be back to help me arrange things, and thanked me for a good day and a great dinner and being kind to his wonderful sons, that I fell in love with when I first met them, they were the “most” polite, loving, generous and happy youngsters I’ve met in a very long time, not to mention smart.
I apologized to David, I felt so badly, as if I had used him, I still feel that way. He and Rick did all this they said as a return for the lathe lessons. I will tell you this, I came way out ahead on that deal. Thanks fellas I’m forever in your debt. Thank God neither of you has a garage. Mike (Jockmike2)
Some here have seen pictures of my shop and at one time I held the messiest shop title. Not that I was proud of that, it was just all in good fun.
