Gee Bill, that don’t look like any Rawhide I ever seen. But the wood work is very impressive. Rand

RAWHIDE!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks Rand. It drives me crazy when I have a tune in my head set to different words (like my oddball scrollin’, scrollin’, scrollin’), but can’t remember what the right words are or where the tune even came from.
$%^&^%%$!!! I just thought about Bonanza. Now I bet I’ll have a different tune stuck in my head tomorrow.

yee hawww. Coming along William. I got some new rules fer ya – just food for thought. Just humm Rawhide while you read.
FIRST WORKSHOP PRINCIPLE The one wrench or drill bit you need will be the one missing from the tool chest.

SECOND WORKSHOP PRINCIPLE Most projects require three hands.

THIRD WORKSHOP PRINCIPLE Leftover nuts never match leftover bolts.

FOURTH WORKSHOP PRINCIPLE The more carefully you plan a project, the more confusion there is when something goes wrong.


— #4 is me and my buddy Murphy.
T – 16 days and counting…..... Rawhide ;)

Fifth workshop principle: if something is going to go wrong, it will do so at the worst possible time.

”FIRST WORKSHOP PRINCIPLE The one wrench or drill bit you need will be the one missing from the tool chest.”
So that’s why I have wound up with two and three of everything.
”SECOND WORKSHOP PRINCIPLE Most projects require three hands.”
So I bought clamps, and a vice, and clamps, and another vice, and one of those work mate thing-a-ma-jigs, and clamps, and, wait, I need more clamps.
”THIRD WORKSHOP PRINCIPLE Leftover nuts never match leftover bolts.”
Sure they do. All you do is throw all your bolt into one coffee can. Then throw all your nuts into another coffee can. Then when you need a nut and bolt, pour BOTH cans out on the table. Most times you’ll get lucky and get at least two matching nuts and bolts. Now, if you can’t, you won’t be able to find the right tools to put them together tightly anyway, so what does it matter? Use a clamp and hold it together while you run to the hardware store for nuts and bolts. Now I need another clamp. Then when you get back, while you’re putting all those nuts and bolts back into the coffee cans, you’ll find a matching nut and bolt.
”FOURTH WORKSHOP PRINCIPLE The more carefully you plan a project, the more confusion there is when something goes wrong.”
There’s a cure for that. Build according to plans. Then you make sure not to follow the plans. build it your way. Fly by the seat of your pants. Then when something goes wrong, it’s the plan’s fault.
”Fifth workshop principle: if something is going to go wrong, it will do so at the worst possible time.”
That’s because of Dave’s %& buddy, "Murphy". He needs to keep Murphy down his way. Murphy has visited me enough lately. I haven't seen that #$%^, but I know he’s been around. If I ever catch him, I’m gonna whoop his @$$.

”T – 16 days and counting…….. Rawhide ;)”
Now ya see? Just when I think I have all the answers you throw this one in on me. 16 days till WHAT? Don’t tell me the world’s ending again. Did those $#& Mayans get lazy again?

Ok, I hope anyone besides me gets that last bad joke. Everytime I look up, I’m hearing someone these days say the world is ending on such and such day.
Mayans stopped making calender.
Global warming is going to cause the world to freeze. HUH?
Martians are landing.
Electronics are going to crash and people can’t live without electronics.
The underground people are coming to the surface and taking over.
Please tell me what the T-16 days is about. You got me curious now. If the world is ending then there’s no need for me to go worry with this $#%# doctor today. That’s the excuse I’ll use anyway.
No wait, today is my psychiatrist. I better not call telling them the world is ending. They may lock me away and then I can’t finish my desk cabinet.
NEVER MIND!

Now why did you remind of that. I had forgotten all about it. THE PRESSURE!!!
No, seriously, that would mean I’ve only been on it for about a week. Is that correct? It feels like I’ve been working on it so much longer.
