    Default Sorry I have not been around.....

    Sorry for not being around lately, I lost my dad on Feb. 10th, he had been diagnosed with a brain tumor a couple of months ago and it, along with some other health problems caught up with him, he was 85, just been busy with the family trying to get things in order, maybe I can get back to work on the Grabber soon and put some of what my dad taught me to use, he was a Vetran of three wars, serving in the Army, the National Guard and the Air Force for 20 years, he also retired in December 2012 from the Sheriff's Department School Crossing Guards Program, he made me learn about cars and house painting and kept me busy at it.......I'm sure gonna miss him.

    Sorry for your loss...
    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.
    I wish I was the man my dog thinks I am.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words, it does make one feel better, I'm gonna miss him and that's only natural, but he will be remembered every time I pick up a wrench I know I will have his hands guiding me and will always hear him saying
    'how are you gonna learn if you don't do it yourself", now I gotta pick up that new master cylinder for my Grabber and get these brake issues worked out, my Dad was my Certified Master brake tech.
    Once again thanks.
