Well I finally decided it was time to Retire , So I have moved to Oceanside in Southern Ca. near San Diego and am living at my Daughters house in a section of the garage that I converted to living space (All Legal with the City) .

So I am now being a Full Time Dad and Grandfather rather than once or twice a year visits and I love it.
Have been doing a lot of little DIY fixit projects around the house as well as converting half the garage to live in. Still need to do the new bathroom but a lot of that is going to require a contractor for the sewer line and water hookup , also am getting ready to add a subpanel to the garage so I can have more power for my tools.

Just started making some Adirondack Chairs for the backyard from plans I got from Woodcraft , will post pictures of those soon.

O’Side is a nice town.

Hope everything works out for you.

Mission San Louis Rey is worth the time to go see.

Hey R’, welcome to the movement that does not report “to the man… (or woman)”. It’s nice to meet new people that have “moved” on to a betta and more relaxing life (taxman permitting).

You have a new life… buy a bleeding camera… take a few happy snaps of your “workshop/garage” (and keep it updated). Lack of time (though that is now a precious resource) should not be used as an excuse for NOT pressing that shutter button. You can’t fool me… this post has nearly convinced me that you have Internet access… so post (not USPS) some more happy snaps….
