Just wanted to thank everyone all at one time for the kind notes and concerns they sent my way while I have been "absent without leave" for the past month or so.  Everyone's friendship means a lot. 

 

I had taken some time away from all the unessential things (like posting on internet forums and the like) to slow down and take a big deep breath.  I'll admit it, this spring and the accompanying busy season wore me down to a little tiny frazzle.  Combining that with some other things that needed to be sorted out beyond the world of tractors meant that I wasn't much use for anybody! 

 

However, I was not ready for all the emails and messages I had from you good folks while I was gone.  I tried to respond to as many as I could, but I probably missed a few.  Thank you to everyone who wrote, though! 

 

I'm planning to waddle back into my accustomed chair over there in the corner and join back in. 

 

Ben W.

Glad to hear that.

 

I was beginning to worry about you.

 

Even called Kenny a week or so ago asking if he knew anything.

I hope that you are up to snuff now. I find a "sanity pause" is necessary every day, even if it is just a longer shower. Take care of yourself. Good Luck, Rick

Welcome home Ben!  Sometimes you just have to step back and take that breath. 

 

Funny thing is that you disappeared about the same time Cat went on Vacation. Hmmmmm!

Have you had a check up lately? As we age, our thyroid and other stuff goes down and it can wear you down. All it takes is a blood test to check.
