Back and Busy as usual

Been a while since I have been online and I have sure missed it too. I got a call Sunday night (Aug. 2nd) and was told that an old friend of mine had lost the battle with cancer. He was Mrs.Bullseyes cousin and a long time friend of mine and I was sad to see him go. I loaded up on Monday the 3rd and made the trip to West Virginia to pay my last respects and visit with family. We laid him to rest on Thursday and he will be missed by more than a few people. 56 years old and gone, as many, to cancer.

We came back home this past Saturday and some friends of ours followed us home to spend a few days. We had a really good time with them and was glad they came down. It's always good to be in the company of good friends.

After returning home on Saturday I got a call from a friend that lives close by that is in the flooring biz. He had a job that he wanted me to oversee that was an hour away from home. He is tied up with another job and needed someone to be there to make sure things gets done. Well, it's really farther away than I like to go, a little harder work than I like to do BUT the money is a lot more than I can turn down. So, I will be on this job for about 3 more weeks and will have little time on the computer. After a hard days work this old dog needs to rest. Can't work like I used to and then party all night, got to have rest. Early days that last well into the evening wear me down pretty fast.

I'll be trying to play catch up as best I can but don't look for too much out of me for sometime now. I worked yesterday and today and I'm beat. I'm just supposed to watch and make sure things get done but that's just not my style. If there's work to be done I want in on it. I can't stand to just watch people work, I have to help. So are the days of my life...

Talk to you all soon and take care.

This is Bullseye...OUT !!!

Bull - I still can't "read your blog" and can only try to surmise what your blog is about by reading the comments. So, I am going to assume that you lost a good friend to cancer and I want you to know that I am so very sorry. It is hard to lose a friend and good ones are hard to come by. Ernie sends Bull a "hug" through the net. Take care of yourself.

job - gone for 3 weeks?? Please keep tract of whats going on and watch yer 6!

It is not until those one days come when we really miss our loved ones. Maybe something you did together or something "they" would say.

Take it easy and remember your friend!
