Default Almost starting from scratch

I've been gone for awhile, dealing with "stuff". Our old adobe house started falling down after we had spent most of our savings remodeling the entire interior. We used what funds we had left to buy a junky old trailer to have a place to live in. I started taking side jobs, building food trucks, painting signs, wiring up hot rods, whatever helped pay the bills. I had an accident at work, spraining my neck, back, and both knees, requiring rotator cuff surgery. I waited until I had the trailer set, completely renovated on the inside, re-wired and re-plumbed before getting the surgery done, then had my right knee replaced.. I'm doing fairly well, almost ready to go back to making some money to finish up the trailer and take care of some other stuff. I still have the '56 Ford, only because my wife refused to sign the title in order to sell it. I'll try to be involved and active, but can't make any promises. 😁

Man that's a lot of crap thrown your way, glad you are putting behind ya and moving forward. I was just thinking of you Friday I finally got to put your built not bought sticker on my Dodge.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

I think about you from time to time. It is comforting knowing you are getting along okay. Been a tough pull for you. But I can tell you are the better of anything life throws at you. Glad your wife made you keep the Ford.
I've got your sticker on a roadster PU and it reminds me of you.

Hang in there buddy.

Wow, and I thought I had a recovery to attend to with replacement of my left knee in January.
Glad you're making a return too.
You've got a good wife

Glad you're back, Animal.
I liked your '56 so much that while you were away, I went and found my own, a black Fairlane hardtop.
Thank your wife for making you keep the Ford through those bad times.
