I haven't been around much for the past few months, and I gotta say, I miss 

hanging out here with you guys. Life simply took charge of most of my

waking hours.

  I probably missed a whole bunch of interesting GTT stuff, and the one thing

that I know I really missed, was that I wasn't able to make it to Dan's

BH reunion/plow day.

  I had a couple of family issues to deal with, such as 1 daughter getting married, and

moving the other one. Of course, business is always crazy for me from May to Nov., but this

year there are a couple of other issues going on that really require my attention. I've got about

2-3 more weeks of go-go-go to get through, and then hopefully things will settle down.

  Once Nov. gets here, I hope to get back to the important things, like wrenching GTs and

hanging out here a bit more. Oh, can't forget about putting that one GT out on the ice. That's

important too. :smilewink:  See ya around.

Will, we've all missed you, but understand what it means to have life overrun your fun.
I haven't been here quite as much either, trying to get enough wood in for Mom. God Bless my children for being so helpful.

Understood Will. We all have times where there just isn't room for hobbies. It sounds like you've been extra busy but are on top of things. I guess that will make your off season that much more enjoyable this year. Looking forward to seeing your latest projects this coming winter.

Will, things have been nuts for many of us, and I truly hated that you couldn't make it down.  Not only on my account of not getting to meet you, but you would have had a great time, and you deserve time away.  Surely next year will bring better times.

Thanks for the update Will.  You have been missed, but it is certainly understandable.  I "stood in" for Dad several times when my sisters were moving, so I know how busy life can get.

Will, good to hear from you.  I was wondering where you have been.  Life doesn't alway go in the direction we want it to go and our families come first.  Hopefully with the slow season fast approching things will slow down enough for you to catch your breath and join in the conversations again.  Congratulations on your daughters wedding and the new SIL.

Being busy with family is what makes life worth living. Sometimes I want some quiet time to myself but I wouldn't trade it for the world.
