As many of you know who have visted in the past, this has been a retirement hobby for me. But even a hobby can
start to be a drain on your health. I've never really had a profit motive but just wanted to make something that
would be appreciated by other warriors. I've donated many of my items to various groups, the F-8 Gunfighters, Minot
AFB O Wives, local aviation groups that I'm affiliated with, Animal Rescues, our local Chambers of Commerce, and our vet
who operates a free clinic for those who need it. It's been great fun, and with a few items that I've sold,
I've probably come close to the break even point each year. But I've also come to the end of the
runway for this project. As 70 looms closer, I'm having more issues with my double knee replacements, numbness in
one leg and a left hand that is not always cooperative combine that with my exposure to Agent Orange while serving in Viet
Nam and some days can be quite challenging.
I indend on keeping the webiste on line for now as I don't
want to lose my web address. Plus the fact, I'm looking for other adventures that are still within my grasp and
this would be a great place to tell about them.
So Please...no more requests, I just can't take the
time to build these, as each one is about 20 hours of work and still be able to keep up with projects around the house.
So thanks for the many great friends that I've met along the way and I hope my weather vanes give each of you a much pleasure
as I had making them for you.
Clear Skies and Following Winds to each of you,
