I want to thank each and every one of you for your thoughts, good wishes, prayers and emails during my recent time of trouble. You will never know how much they helped me. Being down and out for 4 months was just the pits, and now I am able to walk on my own, work in my shop for a while each day, pick up my grand kids, hug my wife, and sit at my computer and talk to all you jocks!

I’ve made new friends and lost track of one (anyone heard from Woodchuck?)

So thank you all so much, and may each of you, in your own way, be blessed as you have blessed me.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, just HAPPY!

unfortunately, I believe woodchuck left after the last debacle.

glad to see you’re cheerful, and back on the horse.

Happy Holidays!

Yep, sure am glad you’re up and around and back, your help and others has been invaluable on my lathe endeavor.

As PurpLev mentioned Woodchuck left but I think I might have his email at home so I’ll look for it and send it to you if I still have it.
