Thread: This is hard for me...

  1. #1

    This is hard for me...

    Gentlemen.

    I have to suck it up and admit a few things.
    This has been a very hard year for me, and it's showing. Some personal set backs (2 major surgeries) sudden tragic events with family, equipment failures, and an electrical "incident" has caused me enough grief and cost, to knock back my completion dates.

    I was doing good for a while, but, one thing after another has knocked the wind out of my sails. I have had a couple emails and PM's about timing. And though there is a lot of understanding from you, I feel everybody deserves an explanation instead, of "its coming, I'm getting there".

    Rest assured, I am working as fast as I can, and will complete all orders in as short a time frame as I possibly can. I have a few more issues to sort out, and expect to be up to snuff shortly.

    I certainly don't want to sound like I'm whining, but knowing what has been keeping your orders held up, is the least I can offer.

    Please bear with me, and I appreciate your patience and understanding.

    Sincerely
    Pierre

    I think you need a Mexican Riveira cruise.

    I hope things get better for you, after all the crap from 2012, 2013 is bound to be way up.

    Hehe, I only pester you a lot because I get bored waiting in airports.

    See what happens when you're really good at what you do?

    Life is short brother.

    Pierre,

    May the road rise to meet you; may the wind be always at your back.

    (Old Irish saying, from my mother's side.)

    May only good fortune be ahead of you.

    Rick

    It get's done not one moment before it needs to, brother.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Well, you can't be that un-busy what with all the knives from you that I get to make sheaths for.

    Take care of yourself. I like to think everyone would rather have a late Pierre than no Pierre.

    The odds are that this coming year will be better than normal.

    Take your time, and more importantly, take care of yourself and your family. Everything else will take care of itself.

    Pierre,

    Just get around to "it" whenever you can, and don't worry about due dates. Things will get done, and you'll keep pumping out the awesome pieces we know you make.

    Take care of yourself and your family first. I know you know this, but ya know....
