As some of you know, I have wanted to stop managing H-M for some time.
It's a tremendous strain on my personal life. I want to set up my own shop.
In September, September 15, to be exact, it will be 8 years that Hobby-Machinist has been in existence.
I have been training VTCNC to run things here. Dabbler is going to learn too.
I feel that they are ready to start taking over the operation.
I will be here to help in case they need, but I don't think they will.
Tony Wells is and will be here also to consult with.
I will be doing backups, upgrades, and installing addons.
Other than that, I will not be around.
I am leaving this place in good operating condition, and financial condition.
I believe that it truly is a great day today. I am finally off the pain killers after my surgery, so maybe I can start seeing things with a clear head going forward. Might have to get out and about for a bit today. I've got this time off work, I should probably enjoy it, right?
BIG deal it's morning and it's a different day. Everyday the same YA wake up get set for the same thing YA did yesterday till the little terrorist comes thru the door , she says hey pop pop where's Grammy . YUPP days good , gammy keeps up to her she might get back the 115 lb figure I carried on one arm. But those days are gone time for the gran daughter to learn the right way to live we raised three good girls kept them in church and showed by example how to be working adults. YUPP another day just the same.
Today is an awesome day.
Thick low level clouds and ......wait for it......rain.
4 year drought. the dam below 15%, water restrictians and then the rains came.
Dam now at 70+%, water everywhere.
Quite a few people are flooded out but not us.
Its called liquid sunshine here.
Bill - send some of that snow this way.
I'd take the cold and discomfort over what we are having. We haven't had any appreciable moisture since last spring. Yesterday winds of 30-40 mph & gusts well over that. Some prairie fires that were outrunning the fire vehicles. National Guard using a couple of their helicopters with water buckets not far from here.
