    hello old friends

    Hi everyone:

    I came back to my old friends to share that my shop dog died this past week. I'm pretty broken up about it and can barely walk into my shop. Any advice is appreciated. For any of my friends on FB, I posted an obit there.

    Hello ol' friend. Don't know what to say about your shop buddy. I also lost one this week.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    It's good to hear from you again, Cynthia, but sure wish it were different circumstances. You'll find a new buddy soon.

    Sorry to hear about your dog. You can't replace them but getting another sure helps smooth things over.

    So sorry Cynthia. I know how you feel. When mine passed away several years ago it took a real big chunk out of me. Larry's right though. A new pup really helps a lot. I took me over a year to get my old buddies picture off my avatar but my new buddy fits in really well

    Cynthia it is wonderful to hear from you again. I have missed your cheerful upbeat outlook.

    Cynthia it is terrible to hear from you with a message like this. Puff passed away something like 40 years ago and I still miss her. You have all of the sympathy and encouragement that I can give.

    My very best to you in this time of stress.
