Thanks to all my unknown Friends
« on: March 25, 2013, 03:08:46 PM »
I explained in another thread, in Sawmills and Milling, about my Buddy who sawed his fingers off. He's been out of work for a while as a logger and went back to the Doctor today. One finger is growing back on, but the one that is bandaged, he will probably lose. I milled his Cedar today so he and his wife could get back to building birdhouses. First time I have ever done this, but I didn't charge him anything. I just felt it was the right thing to do.

His name is Clarence and he told me to tell you all, thanks for the thoughts and well wishes.
And a special thanks to his Forestry Forum Angel.  smiley_thumbsup

I hope all goes well for Clarence and his wife.  Everyone knows what goes around comes around, good deeds never go unnoticed, especially by the Big Guy!  The One who really matters,   david
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

Thanks BeenThere.....but truly to my surprise and Clarence's surprise, there was another Angel with a Halo that had a little larger diameter than mine.  :)

Nice thing you've done there David!

Wouldn't surprise me if Clarence will have paying sawjobs for you in the future!

Nice when someone really, and I mean really appreciates the fact that you've gone above and beyond the norm.
