Topic tags/keywords: checking in

Hi gang,
I’m afraid I’ve let my attendance on LJs slide, I’ve gotten involved in so many activities I haven’t visited my old favorite and for many years only woodworking forum fall by the wayside.
I’m still in business as a contractor and woodshop owner and available to teach for my local community college. I’m still doing a variety of woodworking projects but since the pandemic situation has hit I’ve gotten into turning bowls.
It’s kind of ironic that the first day I’ve checked in quite a while happens to be my 13th year anniversary since joining Lumberjocks.
I miss a lot of the gang here that have become online friends,I also miss the great friends I met here who are no longer with us,It’s good to say hello to those of you who have been here for long enough the never-ending comments of A1-Jim, and of course greetings to the newer members that don’t recall those days too.

Aren’t we all blessed to have found this amazing activity called “woodworking”.

Peace and joy to you all and happy woodworking.

Hey Jim! Glad to hear you are still on this side of the topsoil.
Apparently, rumors of your demise were greatly exaggerated.

Happy Anniversary to one of the longest running LJs on here!

Hi dear Jim,
Happy to see you are good and hear you are busy living life.
Congratulations on 13 years, I remember how you welcomed me more than 10 ago and you almost always showed up, never understod how you found the time. For a while I were wondering if you were just an algorithm made by LJ, laughs. But quickly found out there were a fine man behind.
Not many of the old once, are posting regularly anymore, I guess everything has it’s time in life… I’m also quite absent these days, but try to come and post from time to time.
Wishing you all the best in life and hope we will meet here from time to time.
Best of my thoughts,
