I hope everyone is doing well; my family and I are all healthy and happy. I have been gone from the LJ since I built my father’s day gift for my dad. School ended the same time and being a stay at home dad spent a lot of time with my nine year old at the pool, camping and boating. In August we found a cabin and almost nine acres for sale close to a lake in Southeastern Ohio. I closed on it in late September and jumped into clearing brush and building an outhouse. Currently there are no utilities there so I build stuff like the outhouse here at the shop and then transport the part 40 miles to the cabin and assemble them there.
I’m sad to report that I lost my faithful shop assistant of twelve years on Thanksgiving day. She really liked being with me where ever I was not just in the shop and she enjoyed the she cabin more than anything. I miss you Big Dog (Sienna) RIP! Here is a picture of here not long before she died enjoying live at the cabin.
We have been blessed with good business this year at the Veterinary Clinic and as a reward we went to Yellowstone for Christmas this last year. Beautiful trip and my wife had a chance to recharge her battery and have some bonding time with our son. Here is a couple pictures.
Cabin furniture is the current push out of the shop. Solid, simple yet functional stuff to make livable and that will nice enough that my wife won’t mind spending the weekend there. Thanks for taking the time to check me out. Hope to see you here again Monday. Cheers!
