In other words you guys work longer and harder than most of us that work for others.  Many is the time that I thought that I would rather work for myself with the hours I was putting in as a lineman/cable repairman for the telephone co.  Many times it was 100 hrs. a week during storm seasons.  We all complain all the way to the bank sometimes but we keep on doing.  Thank God we are able to do it and provide in our best way for our family's needs.  Glad you could afford a vacation, some don't.  :-)

Hey Fly Guy, hope you get over this experience ok.  Nuggets do help a little I know.  When I had my quad bypass on my heart, my son gave the surgeon two nuggets and he almost fell over.  Every time I bump into him in the hospital his face lights up and comes over and shakes my hand.  A little gold goes a long way.

In Topic: Which boots

How come you didn't tell your father about that trick?  Thanks-a-lot guy.   I'm going to try that next time.   I do have a time getting them on and off, belly's in the way. 


New balance is the boot for me.  Nice and light and no metal in it.  But then I don't have anything handy to reference my detector to when I get into an area that is completely quiet.  Have to drop my pick to get a sound.
