I just got back in From Less's place. Eric, James & I went down there to do some tradin as we had planned for the last week. Enjoyed the company & good food. If you guy's ever want the best coleslaw you've ever had just go to Less's. Kim can whip up some mean slaw.

Have'nt caught up on the thread yet. Do you guys mind if I post pics of the damage?? It's not easy to look at.

OK, caught up on the thread.

My pride is really takin a beating on this. I've always been the type to clean up my own mess. & this is my mess. With that being said, the offers here are more than overwhelming.

I still haven't really been able to stomach staying out there to see whats what for very long to even know what might be salvageable.

Please understand when I say that I need a lil time before everybody shows up to build me back up.
It may sound silly to some, but I'm kinda in a greiveing process. This shop wasn't just a place of business. It was me. All that I have been working for since I was little & starting my tool collection. Not trying to play the sypathy card in any way & some of those who know me a lil more personal on here know that I don't operate that way.

This post is I guess a vent. Arborist site is part of my life too. You are all family to me. Several on here have been pushing me for a while now & keeping me goin, and giving me help to git to where I'm at now.

This misfortune will not git me down. I may have to stay on my knees fer a bit to catch my breath after this big blow to the nutsack.

I'm not able to individually thank everybody. So here's a big thanks to you for the support that I have already received.

I have some other issues I need to resolve before I feel right about accepting any charity. This past few months have been rough.

GOD Bless you all.

I've got tools, time and skill to build, but looking at all the folks above me I may be better served standing guard as I'm the only one that's got "a pistol" ROFL


Stump, I completely understand the nut shot. BTDT. It takes a bit to deal with it. When you get some time, post up some dimensions/details etc on the shop and some of us can get build lists and start scrounging for/setting aside materials. I'll be there to help rebuild when they set a date.

When you get around to inventorying customer stuff, get that list on here too. I'm sure there's lots of us that may have extra stuff laying around to help replace their loss as well. (not at all "about me", but helping you recover from the guilt you feel over others stuff). Absolutely put mine at the end of the list.

You're more than a forum member to many of us. You're a brother. We'll get you back up and running and I'd bet with all the support you've got that this will all be over within a few months (and your shop will be clean :msp_biggrin: )

Just thought that I would pass on some info I gathered up last night during one of our many deep intellectual conversations. We found out that when Less is talkin chit he prefers peanuts over corn.:potstir:

Also found out you don't really want to rub Erics thigh while he's driveing. He will pull a knife & pretty sure would use it.:msp_scared: I thought that by the music he was listening to he was into that sorta thing. Guess I was wrong.

James don't say much but when he does, he hits the nail right on the head.
I think he should change his username to Silent Bob.:cheers:
