Wooky et al: Obviously this is a couple of years late. Disaster after disaster. Constant small fires to put out only to turn around to find the entire forest burning away behind me. My health has suffered a little as well, my loving and lovely young bride of the past quarter century has suffered worse. So far she's beat a death sentence by a year so we are rejoicing, but it has been a hard year all around and has left its marks. Now it is time to heal.
As for work, I'm no longer able to do any of the work I formerly did. Physically, every skill I once was so proud of has been stripped from me, one by one until I found there were no physical skills left that I could perform with sufficient skill that I could even pretend to do well enough to charge a fee for no matter how embarrassingly shoddy the product of my performance. Therefore, I will be reopening Big John Country with a new perspective and objective in its sights. I am becoming a Phoenix and rebuilding myself from the ashes of the old and will have new and exciting insights and good old fashioned guidance over the rough spots that might help some of y'all out. Keep an eye out.
Big John
