  • 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.

Good for you Bill. That is the way I approach it, one day at a time and try to manage what only I can control.

We are going for a high of 57 degrees here today. The record is 58 degrees. I think spring is starting to make it's intentions known.

Forecast is for 66° here today, a bit windy bit it IS Kansas. Probably drag the old Ducati out for awhile. So, it is a good morning. Thanks

Sometime the weather needs to get bad enough to eliminate all possibility of riding so I can get the annual service done.

Wife bought a loom last night.
She's been talking/dreaming about this for 30years.
I'm glad she decided to do it!!

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?

Good morning all.

We are supposed to get up to +8 degrees C today! (46F)
If I were in my shop I'd have the doors open.......but instead I'm at work......maybe I can sneak away from my desk at lunch for a walk.

Although it starts to feel like spring you cannot trust March.

Her Swedish great grandmothers made fancy tapestry, dresses and rugs. She has a few samples of their early 1900s work.
I'm into old iron, she's always wanted to weave like her ancestors.

You know we'll want to see some pictures of her work when she gets it going? :encourage: Now though, I suppose she will have to start collecting yarn and thread. I bet there is some learning to do.

Sounds like my mornings, except for the meds. Does aspirin count? :)

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.

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.
