After all this time, the old timers are still here. hehehehe

How is everyone doing?

I am doing okay for some one unemployed. I had been put in the hospital back in October of 2007. I found out that I have a bad heart valve and must lose weight and take blood thinners to postpone any surgery. I just recently filed for disability and waiting for word from them. I have been drawing unemployment since May 16, 2008 when I was laid off for downsizing. It's a struggle paying bills and there are not many business' hiring around here either. I'm getting a lot done to the pond while I wait though. :o)

The bad thing is, my wife is also unemployed as well.

Happy ponding,

Scott, I hope you and the missis outlast this dreadful economy and I hope your health doesn't get worse. It always seems that we get blindsided by life just when we thought things were getting easier. Sandy

Hi Scott old buddy old pal!
And there you are, your typical self, always looking at the bright side. It's much the same as DH said when they told him mandatory unpaid vacation week every quarter: Hey, nice, I'll get some stuff done around the house!

Keep up the chin!

:) Mary

I do admit that I miss this place a little. I've seen Sean McKinney and Mucky at AP but not in a while. Have you ladies chased all the other men away? lol I hope everyone is well. I've started repotting my water lilies that haven't been done in 2-3 years. I have a lot of pond related things that I'm catching up on.
