Wow what a month Oct was. My house was struck by lighting !! Lost my computer, damn the bad luck, I`m at the library at the moment. Lost alot of my electronics, the good news I only had some on / off switches go—-NO TOOLS !!! I live in north Ga, Might of saw all the flooding, yep I was smak in the middle of it. The roof of my shop caved in, The good news didn`t loose any tools, some rust. So instead of making furniture , I was rebuilding my shop. Oh wait it gets better I bought a new truck in Sept., 30 days later to the day—I was in a accident. In the shop for two weeks. I was telling the shop I needed the truck for an arts and crafts fair, no and ifs or butts !!! So off to the show, and what a show it was. It was my first show, and made $1200 and another$1800 in orders. Yep that was making up for the previous disasters. Had to deliver a piece after the show, so I made the delivery, and thought I tied everything down good. 55 MPH down the road going home with a huge smile, looked in the mirror and show my furnitue bouncing on the road , cars weaving, boards flying. locked up my brakes and slamed my walnut rocking horse though my back window. My smile went away. But then I started laughing so hard, I mean WHAT A MONTH !!!!!

Ron, And you can laugh about all that. Wow. I didn’t know if I should cry or laugh. What a great attitude to have. Sounds like you had a terrific show, even though every thiing before and after went to the devil. Hang in there, things are going to improve! Thanks for sharing and good luck.

I am reminded of the wise words “and this too shall pass”—referring to the good times as well as the bad.. :)

Did you have to put the horse down :)

wow, quite a month. I’ve had some months like that this year, always nice to know you’re not the only one. But kudos to you for laughing about it. Glad to hear you got lots of orders at the show!!! Things are picking up all over.
