Been away for a while myself. Retired from the Army in February 2015, worked as a network engineer at a bank for 3 years and currently back at my old army job as a civilian. I often wonder about a lot of the friends I made here. Really did like seeing Jeff's new buddy (Sawyer). My first Shepherd had the same name. Trying to get back to my woods and back to building, got a new 16 x 40, 2 story building going up. Man this old age is showing in my ability to work hard for any length of time. Health has been good and I have missed talking with many of you out there.

Wow Terry, what a pleasant surprise this morning to see this.  We always comment when we pass through Collins and wonder where you are??  Are the "Spider Lillie's" growing?

Spider Lillies are still doing well. Still in Collins for now. Looking to be on my land in Seminary before the year is done.

Or to nowhere. o:) It has been a long time and would be nice to get back together, since we are both travelers.

Hey Y'All.
                Been a number of years since I checked in.  Busy as could be with a lot of projects and got out of the habit.
                But with the pandemic and a bad diagnosis a month ago , I believed I should check in and here's the perfect topic to say, "Sorry I was gone so long."  Nice to see names I recall.
                Any changes I should know?  Posting pics evolve by any chance?  

                 i'll check back in.    The Lud Abides.

Both myself and Mrs. Beaver have not been active on the forum in the past two years because life got in the way, but we sure did miss all of you and am determined to become as active as we once were again. Maybe that is the only good part about this virus, is that it gets you to slow down a bit and have time to keep in contact with those people that matter most in your life like the Foresty Forum Members.

Just a general update: The last three years have been crazy busy for us...some good some bad.

As you may recall, Kristina and I both had Gastric Sleeve Surgeries in the fall of 2018. Mine went very smoothly and i did loose a little over 100 pounds and have kept it off. I also got off  5 insulin shots a day and bp meds. Weight loss wise, Kristina wooped me big time. She went from 319 to 118, but her recovery was a nightmare thanks to excess stomach acid cause by aggrivation of one of our daughters who is always in trouble with the law. She wound up on a feeding tube directly into the heart which became infected due to poor home nurse care and contracted sepsis in April of 2019 that almost killed her and put her in ICU for 2 weeks with months of follow on visits and antibiotics. She no sooner recovered from that , then had a prescription screw up by her former doctors nurse that caused her to have an accidental overdose that once again hospitalized her. Fortunately she survived that as well and now is finally back to good health.

On the positive side, I decided to get my Auctioneer License as a source of income when i retire at age 60. I got the license 4 years ago and we opened Strauss Auctions and Sales, LLC. We purchased a 3500 square foot reception hall and converted it into our Auction house building with months of sweat equity renovations from the top on down. We have been spending a fair amount of time over the last couple years building and promoting that business.

Additionally our firewood business has jumped by leaps and bounds. it literally has doubled in size in the past 2 years and we have become one of the largest wholesalers of DNR approved firewood in Northern Indiana. We current wholesale supply close to 85 stores and campgrounds with their bundled firewood and have hundreds of private individuals that buy directly from us at retail. Honestly i never would have thought we would have done anywhere near as much firewood business as we do. Talk about being in the right place at the right time 

Lastly, and as if we were not busy enough, we decided to add a second 3000 square foot building with two floors to our Auction house property and move the entire sawmill and woodworking operation into that building. Construction began this past Tuesday and once we move in we will sell our smaller 1600 sq ft building we currently operate out of. Will post a separate post on the building as i know you all like pics.

Hope all my forum friends are doing well and are in good Health. Will try my best to catch up with each of you over next few weeks.
