I guess I’ll have to start taking some coffee breaks away from the shop, as I just won a $150 Starbuck’s gift card this evening. Darn.. so much I want to do, so little time!

Time is the enemy, you spend you whole life saving time and when you get old there is no time left, where did all that time go that you saved? I take working breaks, manual work i take a thinking break, and vica versa. My father used to say I will sleep when I’m dead, I guess i’m following in his footsteps, since I just came out of my workshop and it’s 2:20 am. Whatever you want to do, do it, life is too short for regrets. Ok maybe I need some sleep, I’m rambling again,LOL :-)

Trev, I know what you mean. “Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in” HDT. But when you get older it can seem like a great enemy. I am one who built my shop late in life. I was around 55 I suppose. I’ve been a hobby woodworker for 40 years but most of it was done in stolen moments. Now I really regret that I didn’t steal more time than I did when I was younger. So I guess we just better get to work and make the best of what time we have left.

Trev, congrats on winning the gift card but don’t worry too much about the loss of shop time, $150.00 won’t last long at Starbucks. LOL

That should provide some caffeine to go out and do some more work in the shop. Perhaps an insulated mug so it doesn’t get cold too fast. congratulations. You must be living right!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
