    I'm getting there!

    Just reread this whole thread (glad I have my pages set to 100!:hmm3grin2orange:).

    A big THANK YOU :msp_tongue: to each and everyone of you that helped us out either with your encouraging words or buying a ticket knowing you had a small percentage of winning! :msp_thumbup:

    Just to give you guys an update. I'm feeling better. I've joined a low impact exercise group called "Bone Builders". It's a workout for older people, but I fit right in!:msp_w00t: I have little old ladies out repping me and they are using weights!

    Currently my neck is being a "PAIN IN THE NECK"!

    I'm getting there!

    Congratulations to the winners!

    Thanks to the very generous woods port donation made by Mastermind, my 346 XP is being transformed as we speak. Thank you mastermind, and thank you Derbyguy for your kind gesture towards a fellow AS member. Heal quickly and be well Manyhobbies!!

    Got the saw today. Thanks, Naked Arborist, as well as derbyguy for putting this all together, and especially to manyhobbies for having difficulty so that we could give you a hand!

    Sorry guys, been busy on the CX/GL forum. The bikes are finally coming out of mothballs!

    Things are getting better. I can lift my little girl Lilyana and hold her for a while. Unplanned movements are still a problem. If Lilyana is holding my hand and pulls when I'm not expecting it, I feel dull pain.

    I did run my little Poulan 2150 the other day and trimmed a few branches off of a tree.

    I lost a lot of strength just waiting to heal. Slowly but surly I'll get there!

    Thanks again for all of the support you guys gave us! The kind and encouraging words along with the 4-6 cords of wood that was cut!

    I've been thinking about that wood and will take from the top of the pile and stack that in the shed, give it a few more weeks and stack some more.

    Thanks again!

    Dan, Linda, and Lilyana Grace LaDuke :msp_biggrin:

    Mine has arrived complete with pics. Very cool older saw. Scoot sent along a really nice bar in almost new shape 18" instead of 16". Perfect for the smaller wood saw. Some spare Stihl oil and bar scabbard. A BIG Thank You to Scooterbum!

    Wife was happy this one didn't cost anything. LOL

    Hey guy's, I received my Mastermind woods ported 346XP, and holy mother of pearl!! What a professional, outstanding job by Randy. That saw is a screamer. Believe me when I say that a Mastermind woods ported saw is something special. Couldn't be happier with the results. I never win raffles as a rule, but man did I hit the jack pot this time. Thank you derbyguy for thinking of your friend and going out of your way to help him. Thank you Randy for the generous donation and the incredible woods port. Dan you hang in there and get well soon.

    Thought I'd report in on how I'm doing. I'm getting stronger and can do more and more. I still have to be the one planning my movements. My little girl was holding my hand and pulling me which didn't feel very good.

    Congratulations again to the winners and thank you so much to everyone who joined in this raffle to give us a helping hand. derbyguy, thank you for all of your work keeping track of tickets and all of that gobbledygook (technical word).
