Looks like this year continues just as ****** as it has been for a while. I was all packed to go to the wood shop tonight, but found out a few hours ago that one of my best friends who was just here 2 weeks ago from Germany has been run over by a 80 year old driver who ran a stop sign. My friend is in critical condition and being operated on right now. They said the chances for survival are good but the injuries are severe, whatever that means, we don't know many details, yet. Obviously he was catapulted through the air for more than 30 yards before he crashed into the street. That really puts some of the daily hassles into perspective. And I also don't feel like woodworking anymore, much to nervous and anxious to hear what is going on.
