Small world, I start nursing classes (been taking the few pre-reqs I needed after being out of school for over five years) next fall. It's been fun learning about the bones I've broken over the years. :p After this blows over (whichever way it does) you should try your hand at building again. It's only been five years and I notice that I've been underestimating the labor required for tasks I have planned by a large margin, but my "easy build" is starting to come together after over a month of work.

I'd wager that our "easy builds" no longer seem easy because we have nowhere near the time we had to do this when we were younger.

I also need to rebuild my tool collection, my ex-wife decided to sell them on me. :cry:

All my future tools are contingent on me proving that I can use them for practical things to the current girlfriend lol (not really, she doesn't care what I buy or do, and I'm sure she'd be on board with building these).

Machine tools might possibly be valid reasons for divorce.

Selling my machine tools after a divorce would be a valid reason for "disappearance"

Almost...

The reason why even though I make the effort to maintain my status as an eligible bachelor, I have no intention of renouncing on that bachelorhood.

This lockdown has been quite insane, it turns out that when people are stuck at home they buy toy guns online and keeping things going has been a chore with limited staff.

I barely touched my home workshop in the meantime, during a period when I foolishly thought free time would be available in spades.

On the plus side, thanks to the social isolation I finally managed to manage my diet better and do the proper "cut" I've been wanting to do for years, down about 15 lbs and it feels pretty good. Glad I have a home gym!
