That seals it
« on: June 12, 2019, 08:11:35 PM »
After leaving the hospital after a wonderful five visit stay I secured another 1100 sq foot attached room and an additional 20 foot porch on the mansion. This be for large scale painting and mixed media and a frame shop/gallery in back. I will be working with my friends at the antique stores and volunteer with the Opera House when called upon.
As many may have surmised and a few knew, I am out of the SP textile business. I wll set up a simple hand made rig to enhance paintings so you  will not see me disappear. Its time to do what I truly love. When the Lord is gracious to give you that opportunity it would be rude to turn it away.
I will refrain from vocalizing any negativity. It was an interesting 35 ys and I will leave it at that
best to all.

Wish you the best on your new pursuit - your insight will be missed on the SP side of the business - to your success..

God bless, Tony, I envy that. In 3 or 4 more, I'm out too, I started in '75. Thanks so much for all of the information you've shared, I always knew I could trust what I was reading.

Thanks all...……..there are many new guns out there loaded with good info (mostly) so I doubt I will be missed. Will dabble in SP as mentioned  just not for textiles. Beginning the cleanup in there. 1200 sq ft for $50 is truly a gift. Customizing old door panels will be a start. They are cheap and abundant

I saw this come in a while ago, but was in the middle of some new life changes myself. new job, Son getting married, moving, (you know the drill).
Tony'. I don't believe you. I love ya man, but I don't think we want to let you leave just yet. We will keep bugging you now and then to remind your of of your value to us. :)The new projects sounds enjoyable. I'm sure you will build a love for that as well. You're a good dude. Stay in touch my man.
