I was going out with Redheads for a while but then settled down with a blonde I've known since the 6th grade!   She is known as the Churchlady around here and when she dresses up on Sundays I pay attention!  Oh yeah, read my post in the business section!  BWW

I've been missing for a few months, too, but I doubt anyone noticed. I had to cut back on my internet usage because I'm still stuck with a 5Gb air card, and it's expensive to go over the limit. I was all set to go DSL, but they won't give it to me, as the usage in my area is too heavy. It would be nice if service providers would at least come up to the 20th century!

Otherwise, I'm still building my house here in SC. Outside is finally done, sold the house in FL, and am working my way through the interior stuff. My 'forest' is taking care of itself, for the most part.
I hope my ship comes in before the dock rots!

Good to see you're back on the Forum.

Too bad about the internet service in your area.

We had a plan like that. But we found out about a small company that has high speed,with a unlimited plan. Still no cable.

 THANKS CHUCK> no I don,t drive bus anymore..i,ll just say that my health wasn,t the best and being there made it worse.two days after I quit I felt soooooooooooooooooooooo much better.i was great for awhile then I got sick again.back in march I wokeup unable to breath..i spent 5 days in the hospital with a bloodclot in my lungs.i had just finished tapping my maple trees when I got sick..i came home with orders for complete bedrest..ya,two days of rest then 13 days of nonstop work in the sugarbush then four days off because it got really cold.then we worked in the bush for 20 some days nonstop.one nite we made 56 gallons of finished syrup.i got done with sugaring and sawed all summer.in oct I got a nice order and worked on that till November.on nov 19th back to the ER I went..not taking care of myself caught up with me and I spent another five days in the hospital..but in a way it was a good thing because I feel much better then I have in a very long time.now I just need to figure out a way to keep my bills payed till end of march and things will be good..knock on wood!!! I planned on finishing that lumber order then skidding a bunch of firewood trees out to keep me busy until sugaring started but I couldn,t do what I needed because of being in the hospital.i did get some skidded out but only 16/18 cords.i only have a two wheel drive tractor and can,t get in the woods now..so I guess I need to find a job to keep my bills payed for now..

I tried to leave  ::) but you'all are just too dang interesting  ;)

Sold the woodlot; lock stock and barrel. That means the mill, the cabin, two holiday trailers, the tractors, bush buggy, truck, and all the tools except one little chainsaw which I gave to my son. I had to borrow it back before a month was out but that's beside the point.

I cleared enough to buy a new motorhome so now I can tour around and check out everyone else's woodlot  8)

There is an Aesop fable about a gnat and a bull. It talks about the gnat telling the bull that he is leaving now and the bull says, "I didn't notice when you arrived and certainly won't notice or care when you leave." 

I just got your birthday greeting yesterday and wanted the thank the "automated generation team" for it.  Been out with a few med problems, got a new heart,  and now have to live with the rest of the world's problems. 

But we did get a new Hud-son 33 Pro sawmill last August, so I'm still in the club.  Probably got 10,000 bd ft in logs to go this spring and twenty other projects that need finishing. 

Take care guys and gals,

dtody

Do you have a thread on your build?  I hope to build a home or at least finish most of the interior myself and would like to see info on your build for planning purposes as well as ideas!

I have been missing a long time, I think last very active 10 years ago.  I got married, built a shop with the mill, built up a farm that does about 10 k small square bales a year, had a little boy who is almost 4 and been working away at my day job.  Thinks quite busy as my wife got an undergrad degree and masters in that time too.

I stop back in once in a while but haven't been very active.  My poor mill has been parked for years now although I did get it set on a trailer last fall and hope to fire it up again soon as I need two pole barns built.

Haven't been around for a few months neither; can't seem to hold a job ( :D) and have now moved to Region 2, USFS as Director of Strategic Planning.  Moving is rough at any age and me and mamma are getting too old for that kind of crap.  Living in Evergreen CO and working in Lakewood (west Denver).  I have found my desk so maybe will have some time to at least read some posts from this Outfit.....  I figure this is the best forum on the Web for our kind (and like kind) of folks. ;D
