Swordsman ... I'm Still Here & I'm still Alive 17 Jul 2017 10:39 #1

Ok I know I haven't posted or logged on for awhile just have been very busy lately ... Working on a # 1 scale, the House & trying to keep the tax man at bay ... considering closing down Greenville Hobby as I'm not making much progress and most of my Customers are gone ... I miss The Hippy the Most ... anyway long story short ... I also torn down the falling down porch of 20 years ... anyway Here's some photo evidence so you'll know I'm not bluffing ...

DAve, fix that ribbon! :smack

Looks good Gerry, I bet it'll keep the house cooler also with the added insulation.
I told you photobucket sucks...

Two days took nearly a week three weeks to get the porch torn down ... I used Twisted barn nails ... :facepalm

Then a week for the fascia repair ... after I fought the Red wasps & Yellow jackets found about 8 -10 nests in that hole ... :bat

Now the roof is coming along great the insulation ... I really wanted but was told by Roofing friend not necessary ... So off it comes ... those square vents are going away also the steel will vent through the ridge cap using vented closures ... so I'll have six less penetrations in the roof ... the Steel R-panels have a radiant barrier the AC has already stopped running as much with just the sunny side finished .... :geek

On top of that the truck has no oil pressure ... and it tried to Kill Me a couple of weeks ago ... I was getting new tires ....

then the rain soaked earth gave away .... epic fail ...

Hippy and I almost started Modelers alliance on a Higher plane as I was under truck seconds before laying on this blanket ... I had just crawled out from under it ... to get a longer jack handle when I put my hands on back bumper and down she went ...

Needless to say I've been doing some quit reflecting ... Thank You Lord ... :good

Things are looking up still thinking about this for $200 ... and do not pass Go ... I sold The USS BB-35 & a SBD-5 " A CAF Ghost Sqadron Bird " to a member of the CAF Saturday ... He told me to join up and He'd take me Flying on " FiFi Diamond Lil Or The Gunfighter "

Ok, I'm going to Have to postpone the joining of the Confederate Air Force as ground crew ... For a bit more. I finished the roof on the house, right after that the land Lord at my shop, comes and tells me she's raising the rent to $500 a month. Well the sales have been dwindling, so I asked if she was going to double the business ... She said no ... So I moved out to my land on the farm. It's been a blow money wise ... New building, naked inside, I moved everything in totes in my wife's car ... Well I was just turning this thing around, and starting to make a comeback, when my Wife got dizzy Wedsneday night ... Stumbled into the car landed on Her rear ... I had trouble getting her up, so off to the hospital. She fractured Her Femur & now has 3 titanium screws holding the ball on ... So it's going to be rough on me for awhile. Things just keep happening ... I didn't get many of my builds(campaigns completed ) ... I'll try to finish the ones that are still open ... I'll be busy next 10 weeks taking care of my wife ... But I'll try to check in every once and a while ...
