you all are a great bunch of guys to share with and learn from,
I will be off the boards for a while after the 5th of May, I am turning the shop over to Jarrod [my son] and going on the road working for a friend traveling. I'll be doing assignments of energy used by the equipment in large corporations and radio stations. It is a major change. This will be my 2nd major change in my job career. The 1st was Buying a furniture refinishing shop 13 years ago after painting mural and faux finishing in homes for 13 years.
I remember listening to Billy Graham years ago and he asked retired folk what are the 3 major things you would do different in your life if you had it to do all over. The #1 answer was they would take more chances. Well I am following elderly advice along with prayer, I feel this is a good way to faze Jarrod into the business and get him looking at life in a more responsible way. He's one of the best furniture repair men I have trained and he far exceeds me in his abilities, he has also picked up a lot of my conservation skills and gilding. So between him and Manuel they will do very good. So after my hunting trip to Ky next week which is now canceled I will be off to Tx and then Denver May 5th for the 1st leg of my training. I just hope that maybe I can do a little hunting along the way.
So I will be making furniture a true hobby now and not just hobbies I love to come to work for.
