    My turn?

    Well, all of you folks have been doing a bang up job of talking to the original woodworker on behalf of a few of our members. So, I guess I'll ask if you could maybe say a few words for my surgeon and his team Wednesday morning. I don't really need the prayers, heck, all I have to do is show up, lay down and fall asleep. CT scans and vein mapping on Tuesday heading home to feed the stove and animals and then heading out in the morning again. Cut and hauled up a load of wood today, put in three round bales for the calves AND the water thawed in the pony barn!!!!!!!!!!!whooooooo hooooooo!!!!! So hauling in calf feed, dog food and cat food tomorrow as well as filling all extra troughs for the horses and team tomorrow. Worst case scenario at least is I'll end up with a bypass from my spine to the middle of my hand. At least no talk of amputations on this surgery. So, if inclined, appreciate your thoughts, will check back in when able to once home, whenever that is.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    I wish you the very best!!! You deserve it.

    Slow down as much as you can for awhile. Your body needs a bit of R & R.

    Enjoy,
