Well it looks like i might be back. Hopefully for a while this time. I feel very disconnected from the woodworking community as of late but I want back in lol. I’ve been so busy with everything that I actually kinda forgot about LJ. My moms been fighting cancer for about 2 1/2 years. She’s been in the hospital for well over a month now which has had me very stressed. Yesterday though we got some good news and she seems to be healing well. So we’re all hopeful. But hopefully in the next few days I can post a few projects and comment on some of yours as well.

It’s good to be back

Hello, Greg.

Sorry to hear about your Mom, but the positive news is certainly something to celebrate. A day at a time… isn’t that what we all have, after all?

Welcome back!

So when i posted this topic and my return to lumber jocks i was mistaken that I’d be around for a while. I thought I’d be back for good but my Mom passed about 2 weeks after this post. So now that I have had some time to grieve I hope to be back for real this time. Hopefully I get to post a few projects and shop pictures shortly. Missed you all
