That's beautiful. Don't think miami has enough land left for a shop that big!

The more I browse these forums the more I feel like I'm the poorest member here lol!

You will know poor when you are in you're in your middle 60's and the wife decides she wants to be on her own and all she wants is all the money but you can keep the house and shop and all the 'stuff' in it. It's not all that bad actually but you just won't have the funds to do much playing with toys anymore.....

Damn, that's a late divorce! I had my 1st at 25 I think...expensive but sooo worth it lol! I had a nice time playing with other people's toys when I was a tech. Never really had my own though.

Yup. Got married in 1986 and we've known each other since 1970....the divorce was final in '86 after a year.

Sounds like my BIL. His wife went wacko, money hungry etc even though he makes a ton working on rigs in the gulf. Bitch never wanted for anything. To her, he's oil field trash. She has burned many bridges including the one to her daughter's fam.

Doh.....my divorce was 2018 lol. She left in 2017. Guess I had 1986 in my mind.
Lol. I figured as much, sad, but I'm sure you are doing fine. I'm at that crossroad myself currently. Not sure what I'll do. A little long in the tooth for change, but can't see spending the rest of my life like this.

Not much getting done the snow has hindered traveling and staying to long in Navada but this is where we’re at. More panels up and that goes fast being 4x8 sheets.
