Still can't believe Onyx came home. If he was with someone else, they weren't feeding him well. He was rather skinny, but otherwise just fine. I think he somehow got carried across town and has been making his way back home for the last month. Crazy but awesome.
Hey Charley, @Sunbreakers I didn't want to hijack other dude's thread.
The past is what it is. Can't change that, only learn from it. And can't let it beat you up because of the choices made or what happened due to those choices.
Who knows? If we had actually worked together, we might hate each other at this point. OR, we could still have a shop going somewhere and be just fine. No way to know how that all would have turned out. We were still able to hang out and be friends even though I was working for Rusty at the time. There is nothing to apologize for. Like I said, neither of us knows how it would have gone 20 years ago. Life itself affects people and life might have gotten in the way of business, for either or both of us, and it might not have gone the proper direction. But we are still friends and that is the main thing.
I am trying to make it work here at my little bay. I haven't had an actual "Boss" in over 8 years now and as most anybody knows, it's slow going to get to,,, quote " That Point", where you can be comfortable with what you have built. I know I don't have the flashiest shop or a bunch of accessories and lights and radios etc, etc. I'm also not the fastest tinter on the planet by any means, but I try. I try to do it right, and have happy customers. That's really all I want. A steady schedule of happy customers. Don't need all the headaches that come with the accessories side of things. I can do and have done all of that and don't really enjoy that part of it, so for now, I will just keep on trying to get my little bay on the map.
