Gentlemen and those of the fairer sex, after some serious and prolonged health problems I think the doctors, etc. have me up and running again. I haven't been in the shop much at all until recently where I have finished another jig to help me out on picture frames and that sort. I hope to get into the full swing of things shortly. Also, in the middle of all the problems I have, my wife of 52 years has been diagnosed with early-stage Dementia. Not too bad yet but expected to be in the future, hopefully, the far distant future. Have been making a little over 700-mile round trips to and from the specialists in Kansas City to help her out. Two more trips this month and we might be able to cut back on them considerately. By then she should be on different medications which will stall or slow down a lot of her symptoms. Some new meds for this just came out late last year and earlier this year that are supposedly really good for these symptoms. I can only hope.  I should be online more often now.  Not sure if that's a good thing for you guys though. LOL.  You all have a good day and stay safe.  Mike ( Mel52 ).

Wishing you both good health and happiness.
