BEEN AWOL FOR A WHILE
« on: January 19, 2019, 11:54:11 PM »
I've been AWOL for a good while, life got in the way, Ladysmith and I have retired and are building our place with a small shop at my Sons property, currently living full time in our motorhome, just renewed my dues and getting back in the swing of things, glad to see the TMA is still ticking!

Hey Beaverthing, what a great surprise to see you on here.
That life thing sure can jump out at you and screw up a fellow's plans, eh?
Look forward to seeing more of you here.
Life is still OK down here in LaLaLand, if you don't count the politics, high cost of living, the price of gasoline and taxes.  If you do, it sucks.  In spite of it all, we are getting by all right.
Take care and stay warm.
My best regards to Ladysmith.
