The YOU SUCK scale just added a higher level. What a total score!

I’d be glad to schedule a chiropractor appointment to help with the back. Be sure to leave your shop unlocked during that time and I’ll come over and guard the cherry, OK?

Someone stole approx 550 board ft of rough cut cherry from me a month ago, it was all in 8’ sections, stack looks like that.. I think you need to return it, we can’t have you holding stolen lumber…..

proof that paying things forward is always worth it.

funny how our small deeds of good will, where what we think we did as an unfettered act of kindness mattered little to a friend, when in fact, you obviously meant the world to them.
