So for those of you that know me you know I’ve been around for quite a while. I’ve been out of the game ever since I stopped working for Ohio. I took an opportunity in the defense industry and I absolutely love it…. It’s like being home again. Any way just in case you’re trying to figure out the title. I’ve been instructed by the doctors that I can not have any exposure to chemicals any more. To me, that means a little bit won’t hurt. I am closing my business after 20+ years and will be getting rid of a lot of different things including African horned animals to moose and many hides put aside for competition pieces. Don’t boo hoo my ass or feel sorry for me or I’ll slap ya next time I see ya. Any way I’ve been diagnosed with stage three chronic kidney failure in both kidneys. I only drank when I was in the military and of course at quite a few taxidermy shows but that’s it. I’ve never done any type of drug except for prescriptions for surgery or some shit. After taking that into consideration the doctors are left with exposure from the military and or chemical exposure. Kidney failure does not run or exist in our family. I will try to make it to a show once in a while and hopefully just compete once in a while so I don’t lose skills I’ve gained from the past and hopefully pick up new ones. Items that I list will be shipped or delivered to shows or shops depending on what and if we can arrange it. Keep on keeping on fockers and see ya around again soon.
