    Difficulties the past few weeks

    Good morning fellow HF'ers, I just wanted to give an update on how things are going. I've been pretty absent from my email box and the workshop the past two to three weeks, and I wanted to give a brief explanation as to how things are going.

    The past few weeks have been plagued with several occupational-related injuries and pains, accrued from working a bit too much over the summer season this year. I've frankly been unable to really get much of anything done, be it sitting at a computer screen for more than 15-20 minutes at a time or sit and make a tarp, for a majority that time as well. Good news is, that everything as of now is corrected/getting better and should be under control, I'm just a little bit slow to get up in the morning and I've had to really plan my email/internet/not laying down time. I do want to apologize publicly to the several individuals I've had to skirt with their need-by dates on their tarps for, and I am trying my absolute hardest to get back to you one on one and get your tarps out in time!

    I'd gotten a few phone calls from a couple concerned individuals here from HF and I was absolutely blown away by their generosity and kindness - I love being able to work with this community day in and day out, notwithstanding the bouts of physical pain.

    Lastly, I'll hopefully have some exciting news in the next few days about ways forward that I can prevent a slowdown of tarps in the future. I've had lots of time to think about the future and have some positive plans in place!

    Take it easy, Brian. Take care of yourself first!

    Just make sure you keep up the communication. You'll find people much more understanding if they know why items are slow coming.

    I wish I was closer to you, I'd offer you a hand if I could.

    Yea! I'm glad to hear you are doing a little better. It is a job I do not know if I could do. I wish you well. PM sent.
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.
