Thanks everyone, these 2 weeks are going so slow as I work out my 2 weeks notice at the part time job I'm at now. It sure will be nice to get back to a real job in my field, really looking foward to it. Thanks to everyone for all the great comments and encouragement.

knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

Ron,

We already talked as you were working out the details on your new job, but I just wanted to say how impressive it was over the last year and a half to watch you manage a very difficult situation with such a good nature, and with constant faith that things would work out. Well done my friend!

I for one think the good Lord wanted you doing something else during this time away from work. He wanted you to be strong for Chris, strong for Alexandria, strong for Paula, and strong for your parents and hers...and you led your family by example...and they all benefited from your daily presence.

And frankly, we all benefited from watching your example too...always a friend, always willing to help, and making the best of a bad situation...and now the good Lord is giving you a great break in return by giving you a job in your chosen field...awesome!!

And StoneThrow? Consider it done! All us local fellers will help you see to that!!!

Take care, see you soon.

Corky
I found this old Cub, Forgotten and Forlorn,
With pistons and valves frozen and worn.
Help from my buddies on Farmallcub.com,
And an engine from Ralph, (37’s the one),
Now ole Corky is running and back to life,
Much to the surprise of my dear, dear wife!
