  • Hello again...

    Hello all, its been a long time. I will try to keep it short even tho its a long story.

    I was to close on a house on Aug. 25th. I was so excited and ready to move and set up my new workshop. Well three days before I was to close I got let go from my job because they are going to outsource my department. So therefore I did not get the house and I was out of a job.

    I posted my resume on monster and the very next day I started getting calls. Two weeks later I landed a great job(at least so far) making more money and it is even fun to boot. I also found another house which is only ten mins. away from my new job and much nicer than the house I was going to get. Keep your fingers crossed but I am to close on Oct 30 and to make things even better me and my girlfriend are going to get back together. So all things happen for a reason even tho you don't know the reason when they first happen. Everything works out in the end.

    That is why I have not been around for a while(not that anybody missed me...LOL)

    So thats the short version of a very long story. I hope to be on more and cutting more once I get settled in my new place. Like I said keep your fingers crossed, I need all the help I can get.

    Talk to you all again soon.

    Good for you!

    Almost 4 years ago something similar happened to me: I had been sick and when I returned to work they "cut" my position due to budget restrictions.

    They did give me a 3 month "package"

    I had bought a house (my first one) the year before, and was wondering how I would not go bankrupt.

    3 weeks later, I posted my CV on and got a call two days later from a headhunter looking for my exact qualifications. Did three phone interviews and got a new job with a 50% (yes FIFTY) better salary doing the exact same thing as before. And since last March I now get to work from home on top of that; doesn't get much better than that.

    I've been laughing since then, and thanking God for my good fortune.

        Well, yesterday, I shot my 18 in the morning. The grands came over and I got one of em to try it out. I had to demonstrate so I got another 12 or so in. Last night I finished up with 90 for the day. Going to challenge myself to one hundred arrows a day for one hundred days. Made an excel spreadsheet...

        For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.
        The laser doesn't care about grain....

        A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
