    Re: New Site Leader

    A big "bulk" thank you to all for the kind words.

    I just enjoy sharing information and personal experiences when I can and if it ends up helping someone in the process then all the better. And just to be clear, a lot of what I know and try to pass on I've gained from others right here on WW so a special thanks to those (some no longer here) as well.

    For the record, the sea pig clip was pretty funny Robert and Pipeliner, I refuse to be held responsible for the present condition of your shop. It's bad enough that I'm responsible for the condition of mine.

    Good choice! Congrats, Duane!
    I had the opportunity to spend a few hours with him several days ago. Just as nice in person as he is on here!

    Re: New Site Leader

    Thanks Gravel (love that story!) and you're welcome to stop in any time. Plenty more project materials here for you to pick from.

    Actually got rid of some of the jobs that were here when you stopped in. Finished the stand-by generator install yesterday freeing up my trailer, customer picked up the little yellow diesel generator Tuesday and I delivered that big 15K portable Generac yesterday that's been done and taking up space for the last 6mos. Owner decided to let me deliver it to him for a little extra as he still hasn't been able to borrow a p/u so he could come get it.

    I can actually walk around the shop a little more now.

    Thanks again.

    That's great news! You won't have to be rescued from the shop after breaking an ankle. LOL
    My garage is worse than your shop was though... going to try to make some progress on decluttering this weekend.

    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    He's ok. I talked to him last week. Just buried with the job and everything else.

    It was good to hear he was ok.

    Or would that be more like "Listen up! See what happened to the last guy who tried that?"

    Is that a welder or are you happy to see me?

    As an infrequent lurker, good choice for fearless leader.
