That sounds good - and sounds like the best things you ccould do would
be to stay in close touch with her and take good care of yourself.

Good plan. Rest and a bit of patience will help to keep _you_ whole
and healthy (and better able to cope with whatever comes your way.)
Not much of a detour, I think. The shop is only a good kick-back away
from I-80 (E-W) and just 15 miles from I-35 (N-S). BTW, if you have an
idea a-cookin' about then, bring a DXF and we'll feed it to one 'bot
or the other just for fun. I'll have some demos ready; but don't be
bashful about letting me know of anything you'd particularly like to
| Stuff can happen very quickly around here...so who knows.
Visitors have aways been welcome at the shop; and there's always fresh
coffee either in the pot or brewing. My earlier invitation still
stands for whenever you can stop in.

There /is/ a lot of potential - especially as transportation costs
rise and petroleum-based products become more costly. If we don't have
a _major_ breakthrough in energy production, I think we'll see a
resurgence in small local production facilities and an increasing
demand for products that can be fabricated from renewable local
resources. In the context of the wreck, I see that as shops like
ours - and CNC and wood. Already I'm seeing movement toward
downloadable "open source" woodworking CNC part programs and DXF files
on the Internet...
...and not just for drawers and cabinet parts.
