M/D Fall Shoot

I know everyone is wandering about the Fall shoot. Well, I have had 3/4 of my home destroyed by rain water intrusion, due to a freak accident when a contractor was replacing my roof. With that said I'm living in the bathroom in the house and a travel trailer in my driveway for the next 3-5 months. I have been very busy trying to get ready for cold weather and have put everything else on the back burner. I know it is getting late and I'm looking at late October for a Saturday work day and a Sunday shoot. I'll post a date as soon as I can.

Also, I spoke with "Englishman Chris" the other day and he could use our prayers for some serious health issues he is having. If anyone would like to call him, just contact me and I will get his number to you.

Till Later,
DM

Aww....geeze! So disheartening to hear this about the house. What can I do? In the midst of relocating myself; but am sure I could find a few days to help out. Whatever ya need.
Sad to hear of Chris' problems, too
Will keep all of you in my thoughts

How about a work day at your place instead of the range? Let me know when, I'm there. BTW, I have set a retirement date!!

I hope that insurance is covering everything for you be it the roofers insurance or your home owners. If you need anything let me know.
On the bright side you can put in the sales listing that the home is newly “Remodeled”.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

All. Sorry to say that a Fall shoot is NOT going to happen at my place. Between work and everything going on in my life right now, I have to pass on doing a Fall shoot. With that said, we will have to look to having the Frozen Nutz shoot in January. Sorry.
