Back from the dark side
« on: March 20, 2021, 07:11:52 PM »
Haven't posted in a while. Had a few life setbacks; I lost my wife of 37 years 2 years ago. Then i was diagnosed with prostate cancer last year (I had it taken out). My best friend passed away unexpectedly. Etc.. so on. I totally stopped doing machine work for almost a year, then got back into it by doing M8 head development. (That went very well)

I'm still struggling with the loss of Karen but life has to go on (so I'm told). Anyway, I'm back into doing things
and staying busy.

Never realized that Doing your own cooking/laundry/book keeping/house cleaning, eats up a bunch of time that I never considered.

Hope yall are doing well. I'll try to post occasionally.

Cheers,
Matt

Howdy, welcome back. Definitely sounds like a run of hard times. I too wish you the best in getting things back together and better days ahead.

Welcome back, Mister.
Ignorance is bliss, and accuracy expensive. How much of either can you afford?

Welcome back Matt.  I remember your thoughtful input and look forward to hearing more from you.  I hope we all can help provide some of the distraction from life to make it easier to push on.
