Part 1: what ever happened to all the things we were told when we were young?

09-24-2013 12:42 AM by woodworker59 | 13 comments »

I want to start off by saying that I don’t want to come off as really negative or cynical, or just disgruntle. I am however somewhat perplexed by how things have changed, and not all for the good I might add. I for one would like to see some things go back to the way they used to be. I am dismayed by the fact that even though when I grew up I was told that if I worked hard and did what was right, paid my bills and taxes, treated people fairly and was honest, that I would achieve the ...

Part 2: what we were not told, and why were we not?

09-24-2013 05:48 AM by woodworker59 | 1 comment »

I want to try and explain whats happened that has brought me to where I am now.. What has caused me to move around in a serious funk for the last few weeks.. that thing that has shaken even the foundations of my patriotism and honor. Well….........a little over 15 years ago while at work, I had my left leg crushed by a 700 series back-hoe bucket full of gravel. I spent the next 30 days in the hospital, the first two days in the trauma unit, had two surgeries the first week, then one a w...

Part 3: where do we go from here

09-26-2013 05:00 PM by woodworker59 | 6 comments »

I have decided that I need to change my outlook on things… I need to spend more time concentrating on the positive relationships in my life and not dwell on all the garbage that I am having to deal with. I can only change what I can control, the rest is just a shot in the dark.. I have no control over the way my employer wants to cheat me, how the insurance company doesn’t care if I hurt or not.. I can not control the outrageous prices we pay for everyday necessities. I can how...

I needed to do something to try and work my way out of the funk I was in..I was in a dark and scary place for a while..I did what every red blooded wood worker would do.. I made something.. Yes sir, I made a nice Coffin plane.. took me a few days to complete, gave me some much needed tool time, time for reflection, and direction, and sanding..and more sanding… quiet time, and sanding.. Through all this time of dust and dispare, I came to realize that most of what was bothering me was be...

Part 5: crap getting deeper, hills getting steeper!

Okay here I go again.. I have just about had it with all this junk going on that they are passing off as work in our congress and senate.. I mean really, everybody is getting their hand slapped six ways to Sunday and these guys are completely blind.. they wouldn’t have a clue if it fell on them… that’s the problem with the way our political system is set up.. once you get there, you have to forget where you came from and become one of the chosen ones… “I wont sup...

Part 6: its gets any darker, I'm just gonna light something on fire..

01-14-2014 04:35 AM by woodworker59 | 5 comments »

Didn’t want anyone to think I had left for parts unknown, can’t say I haven’t thought of it a few hundred times… I can not remember ever living in such a dark place for this long.. I could really just start hurting people,and that’s the old me…the me that people would cross the street to avoid, don’t want to go back there, not a nice place.. So I don’t want to drag anyone down with me, nor do I want to start screaming about stuff, I just want t...

Part 7: there is a light at the end of the tunnel.. just can't help but wonder if its a train coming my way/

I have decided that it does me no good to turn myself inside out trying to figure out what nightmare they are going to lay at my feet next… I can only deal with whats in front of me.. So they take away everything I ever earned, so I lose my house… So I’m crippled for life,,, I can manage.. its the attitude that they have no responsibility for what happened that really burns my gourd.. You would think I am asking them to pay for my mistakes instead of their own.. I never ask...
