  • Update from RingWorld

    Wow! I'm beat. I really busted my butt on the house this past weekend. 3 straight days of getting up at 6am (when baby Ring wakes up, everyone wakes up) and working solid until 10 or 11pm. I can't explain the headache I had today. I took copious quantities of advil and still didn't get relief.

    Anyway, I am making progress on the house. In one or two more weeks I'll have all the major carpentry work out of the way and I'll be working on painting and a few smaller projects.

    I still have a solid weekend of moving stuff into the attic from the second floor. I feel that once I move onto painting the trim work and staircase that I'll have a little time free up so that I can work on getting this webpage updated (mainly the projects section as I have about 2 or 3 requests to post boats weekly) and making some improvements to the ClassicMako society.

    But more importantly, I think I may be able to get back to work on my Mako. Hopefully by May I will be dedicating at least 1 day during the weekend to my boat.

    Aside from the house and baby, the wife and I are working on opening up our own dental practice in Slidell. We are truly busier than a cat covering shit. But seeing all these boats out on the water... I gotta get back to work on mine or I just may go crazy.

      We all appreciate your efforts to keep this site top notch! You have really done some innovative things with the site and it continues to look great.

      If there is a bright side of not getting to work on your boat it would be the benefit of getting ideas generated from this site!

      Good luck,

        Sounds great Ed. I wish my wife and kids would actually leave me alone on the weekend so I could get some painting done around the house......

        Best of luck with the new practice! []

            If I were living your life I would have freaked out by now. Of course, I'm really lazy so I never would have attempted even a quater of what you do.

            Just go fish bro...

                  This is certainly a very busy time in your life Ed. Just dont let the stress get to you. Rome wasnt built in a year and neither will your empire. Now that all my children are older now I wish for the days when I could rock one to sleep while holding them on my shoulder. Try relaxing on your porch with that little one on your lap for a few minutes and see if that headache dont go away. (providing shes not screaming!!) dave.

                      Think it's busy now... just wait until soccer, piano recital, HOMEWORK [xx(][xx(], etc., etc., etc., something will be happening all the time and you'll only be dreaming about how much time you used to have to do things like build houses or boats.

                      Suddenly you'll wonder where all the time went.

                      Not that I'm complaining - I wouldn't trade back for anything.

                            I can... There are some pretty good drugs out there that we can cool you down with. We could trade out some work. I will need a leaning post in a year or so...[]

                              Jim, did Ring tell you he builds foam cored fiberglass molars? Works great, but the resin doesn't taste very well. If you want, he'll put a little mako shark on your grill
