  • How is Rivari doing?

    Anyone heard?
    Last thing I heard was he was going home on leave to see his wife and new baby.

    Another one of our scrolling family that is missed!

    Well,

    If he's on leave with the wife and new baby, and he's not in the forum...

    I guess he's got his priorities straight

    Hope they are enjoying every moment together.

    Regards,
    Marcel

      Carl,

      I'm still alive and kicking!

      I am back in the sand box and have been since the 6th of June, I came back just in time for some of the hottest weather yet...and the sand storms don't even get me started on them things. Basically everything is normal...normal is loosely defined around here, tempratures are hitting 130-140 daily, it is a bit like having a hair dryer blowing in your face. Since leaving home in September of 05 I have now lost 40 pounds, a combination of heat and no beer drinking are huge factors.

      My R&R back home was excellent! The kids have sprouted and the new one is quite the looker, those little blue eyes just cut. Luckily the weather was on it's best behaviour, matter of fact I cannot remember a Memorial day weekend like that, ever. Visited family, ate home cook food, fished and just soaked it all in. Coming back was a bit lame but we are now on the downward side of our tour, we have just 110 days until we roll out and go home. sadly many of us will probably be heading back in 07', nature of the beast I suppose.

      Anyhow, that is my update, I'm alive and well and plan to stay that way, take care all and happy scrolling!

        Hi Todd,

        Glad you had a good time home with the family.

        Sometimes losing weight isn't necessarely a bad thing (coming from someone obese), as long as you feel good "in your skin" that's the important part.

        Keep hydrated, keep safe,
        Marcel

          Great to hear from you Todd.
          I have to agree with Marcel about the weight thing.

          I am not crazy about the obese term. Truth hurts sometimes
          So I like to say I am very thick skinned.

          I cannot even imagine temperatures like that. I kind of shut down when the temp climbs over 80. We sure miss you around here. 110 days will fly by for you.

          Keep safe my friend.

              Great to hear from you Rivari! So you'll be back in Oct/November???? I've got some wood with your name all over it waiting for your safe return.

              And congrats again on the newest addition. Nothing like family and a newborn to put everything in perspective.

                Hi Tango. What model scroll saw do you have? I know the model I bought used is a 226-M. I can't find any information on it because it'd so old. Right now I'm trying to determine the H.P. of the motor used to run these scroll saws. Can you look on yours to see what H.P. voltage, and rpm the motor is?...

                He did therapy for 4 weeks then at home for another 2 to get his legs ready for the surgery. The therapist called today her first inhome appointment is Thursday. Hopefully the other knee will be within a few weeks. He has an amazing resolve so I expect him not to need the walker or cane in 2 weeks....

                I wish Bruce a speedy recovery. If his recovery is similar as that of a friend he will be up and around in no time at all. My friends is over weight and had both knees done 5 days apart. Physical therapy helpd alot.
