Yes, at least that's my plan, to go back home, at least back to the state I've called home for a very long time, Texas.
Sav'en my pennies now and by next March if not a little before I'm going to move out of Utah and try and get my own place again.
I know a lot of you haven't heard from me in awhile now and may not hear from me again till I'm settled in well again and got my shop up and running once more.
So I reckon this is just a note to all that have been wondering if at all as to where I've gone.
Moved in with my daughter in February and things haven't gone as planned so it's time to be back on my own where I'm more at ease and comfortable (the Hermit in me).
If all goes as planned, Lord willing and the water don't rise, I'll find a nice cozy home and a place for my shop and maybe even a new lathe so I can begin work once more on pipes.
A lot of work ahead of me so I can use all the prayers I can carry. Hope you all are doing well in body and spirit and your smokes are sweet.
So until we meet again, thank you all for just being there.

Great to hear from you Ron, and while not so great that things didn't work out as you'd hoped in UT it sounds as if you'll be a lot happier back in TX. And to hear you're planning to start up your shop again, and possibly even buy a new lathe is wonderful news indeed. With your talent in the pipemaking world it's a dang shame to have you not carving. We'll all look forward to future RDP offerings - I know I certainly will.

Best wishes on the move, and don't hesitate to keep us apprised of your progress. Godspeed my brother!

sunny


Cheers,

RR

Sorry Utah didn't follow the script, but you know...Ol' Tom Wolfe was full of it - you can absolutely go home again.

Ron, sorry to hear things didn't pan out in Utah for you. Onward and upward sir. Be careful where you look to go back in Texas. My mom and brother are between Austin and San Antonio and there are so many people moving into the area that getting anywhere is now a day long ordeal. Hopefully you get it squared away quickly.

Well, as of October I arrived back in Texas. Sorry for not keeping in touch but, things have been a bit daunting.
As things are finally settling down I've become a little more comfortable with my surroundings here in Fruitvale,TX.
It's a very small town of only about 500, me being the 500th. Not much to see but, a post office, laundry, school and a gas station. A few vacant buildings from it's early days still remain down the road from me, in fact all that I have mentioned are down the road from me, the rest is farms and ranches. I have a 2 bedroom w/garage home in a surrounding forest of oak and pines with only one real neighbor across the road. Still trying to feel at home is the biggest obstacle I'm dealing with.
As soon as the weather permits I'll be getting a shop put on the back property and get it ready for me and my tooling which will probably take till June to complete or with luck and the help of the Lord sooner. Just living day by day and making decisions accordingly. I underestimated how much finances it would take to reestablish myself here so I continue to sell off my pipe collection, or at least what is left of it to help me on my way to making pipes once more. Hope you all are doing well and will continue so. Wink

Hey Ron

Thanks for the update. Been wondering how you've been. Hope the hassles with the landlord have been resolved to your satisfaction and great to learn that you'll be back in the pipe biz before too long. Also sounds like a cool little small town.


Cheers,

RR

Lovely to hear from you, Ron and welcome back. We've been keeping your bunk for you so pop your kit bags down, settle on in again and pop across to the Mess when you're ready.

Good to have you grace these pages again.
