    OK, there's good in this...I'm working on the Talon...supposedly, but for the last 4 months my freelance side work has been going gangbusters and my bread and butter gig is always busy (by day...a mild mannered janitor...by night...ART MAN!). So last week I figure "I can work on designs Easter...nothing going on" riiight...I get the flu on my back 4 days. So now I'm all better, finished the janitorial gig have some freelance to work on that I should be able to wrap up tonight...took tomorrow off...3 days of uninterrupted paper modeling and designing...ahh the bliss....until.....my neighbor came over to talk some business with me....we're standing out on my deck....CRACK!!! the entire deck collapses with us along for the ride.

    Guess what I'm doing this weekend?

    Hey........ first design your deck........ do it in paper first....... then graduate to the un-refined stuff :thumb:

    Screws.......... use lots and lots of screws.

    Glad you guys weren't hurt on the deck ride. :thumb:

    Oh....... and just think, after you finish the deck it will probably be time to cut the grass......... paint the house........ fix the leakin faucet.......ummm......I'll shut up know before I jinks myself:eek:

    I ended up taking one from an empty lot behind my house (3 years empty). The landlord came over and said I was stealing from him (it's still on his land, it's being used, and not being destroyed by the local trolls with their hatchet - seriously) and that he was going to file articles of eviction on me.

    I responded: "I'm not behind on my rent (one of the few here), I just dropped $1600 on a new roof and you're going to evict me for this?" At which point he relented and let me keep the deck (I had offered to move it back, but it would have taken a few days).

    Had he pressed the issue, It would have taken 6 months to evict me during which time I would have been saving my rent for a new place and he would have gotten nothing.

    It seems the one thing you can count in life is uncertainty. And I certainly hope you are on the upswing! Keeping the optimism and positive is trying at the best of times for me. I applaud your efforts and being, as Bruce Lee would say, "like water" and bending with the ebb and flow of life.

    Cheers mate,
