    Hey Tony! Things are doing OK here. Hurt my back playing golf, but it is on the mend. I see that your 05 is needing some attention ... how many miles on it? Are you planning any work in addition to the STC fitting?

    How's the job going - had any big projects lately? I am seriously thinking of retiring. I would probably go to work elsewhere, but sometimes a person needs a change in their surroundings (and I do not like the person I report to - lol).

    Tammie will be 5 years cancer free this winter! We will be celebrating w/ a trip to the Texas Hill Country for our anniversary in June.

    Take care, and let me know what you have been "up to" when you get a chance.

    Yes I love my wood heat, I try not to buy heating oil and haven't in 3 years now. And I was just teasin' about the 150 but it serves me well. Just about 33K on it now, its a 2010. I have had a company truck for 5 months this year so far running jobs so that keeps the miles off it. I haven't put gas in it in 2 months but I have to tonight, down to 1/4 tank. Could use some fresh stuff in it anyways. I DO miss my King Ranch, but not the headaches it had been giving me when I finally traded it. I often wonder if the guy that bought it had any issues or if it runs great since I took care of a lot of the problems haha!

    I hope I made some also haha! Sounds like it will be a slow winter work-wise, may have to go to Maryland where we are busy or take a layoff. Time will tell. We bought a Hearthstone Manchester with the soapstone lining. $2800, but the old one was worn out. I burn whatever is available. I get a lot from jobs I'm on, this year I got about 5 cord or so of mixed cherry, oak, hickory, maple and poplar. I live on 5 acres in the woods with cherry, ash, and poplar with probably 30 acres around me that I gather up whatever falls or gets blown over. This thing heats up our raised ranch to 85 degrees in the family room where it is on a raised stone hearth we had built 3 yrs ago when we remodeled the family room and opened up the ceiling and took out the attic in that part of the house. And thats with 2 ceiling fans running! lol

    They announced they will (as of 2 days ago) quit adding on to our pension. They will still pay us pension when we retire, but no matter how long we work going forward, our pension benefits are frozen at the amount earned as of this week. Hard to believe that they can do stuff like that, but oh well.

    What are you up to? We just had the daylight savings time change. It has put a big dent in my golf game, have to slip out early now to play.

    Just starting to see some pics of big bucks showing up to feeders at the bow hunting lease. I am getting pretty excited about that. Our plant manager has me in charge of managing the plant bow hunting club. We hunt 500 acr of plant land. It is fun, but we have 15 people in it and there is always an "issue" to smooth over!

    Gotta go! Let me know how you are doing and what is going on in your world!

    LOL, you must have been reading my mind Tony! Good to hear from ya .. and YES, I was thinking about reirement again! Seems to happen every winter, lol. Probably won't do it yet, but the company dropped a bombshell on us "older folks"!

    Things are good, busy but good. Winding down the job I'm on, deadline first week of Dec. Work sounds slow this winter so might have a fair amt of time to mess around cutting/splitting firewood. Bought a new woodstove that likes to cook us out of the house haha! Got a few things on the honey-do list to take care of also. Hows things on your end? Ready to buy a F150 yet? ;-)

    Been thinkin' about you all weekend. Glad you posted up your success. I know it must be frustrating to do that work in the cold, but I sure do believe that the 2003 MY trucks are ones to hang on to. It is just the issue w/ the HPOP and the location of the ICP that is frustrating!!

    Hope business has been good for you. I imagine it slows up in the winter time though. For me, the end-of-the-year is always a stressful time. Been thinking real hard about retiring a little early!!

    Take care Tony!
