Here it is, November in the north again and once again the idea of getting the heck out of dodge before winter squashes me like a bug is running rampant.  We were successful is getting the lawyers money grab stopped and are now back on the original repayment plan that the hospital had established so things are looking very good on that front, libby is weak but cranky which is a good sign, she needs surgury but it can sit for a bit as long as we monitor her blood tests carefully, meanwhile I can work a bit and try to rebuild my financial situation, we are taking a close, realistic look at what we can do and work is one of them, I'm bringing my tools south with us, as least as many of the critical tools that I can carry, I've established a low labor rate, mainly cause I'm slow and the work I do isn't very good, but thats another issue lol, I'm also bringing our DJ equipment so I can make some noise from time to time.  We are hoping to be on the road as early as the first week of december so it looks like we'll be fighting the weather somewhat again but thats ok, we survived before and will do it again.  The route planned is to head south to BK's make his life a little miserable then head for jacks rally and the post rally, after that and some visiting, we'll head back to tenn to make some sawdust and help BK with the conversion of what will be the new home of the charter bus company, I will have to take a few days off in febuary for a bypass surgury cause the stent I have is failing they wanted to do that this week but that wouldn't work out so I postponed it till feb 4th.  Thats the plan for now lol life is good.

Jeez, Cody,

Cody, don't you build cabinets? I would love to see some of your work and perhaps we could invite you to visit sunny California for a bit and get some cabinets made and help out a bit?

Thanks

Well grant, we do pile up sawdust, some places we pile it up a little higher than others, and thats going to be critical to our existance for a while, the rebuilding for us will take a while cause of the deep hurt the lawyers inflicted but thats ok, I'd like to see california but it's not possible this winter.

Thanks Cody, What would be an approx. cost of building cabinets similar to the size of those. I think we are going to make them a little less than the normal 24 inches to save of space.

lol don, you have to remember that i've got a 2 stroke so that limits me somewhat to oil finishes on my cabinets, mainly CF2-40 wt lol.  Ruthi, are you aware of the BYOB seminar after jacks rally?  You bring your own bus and can get some personalized attention on the work you'd like done.

Don, now that the lawyers legal looting has been halted, at least for now, I think we're going to be ok, one thing the attorneys couldn't do was to take away my willingness or ability to work, they cleaned out everything else but we'll recover from that in time.
