After 2 years in Afghanistan my wife finally has me home in Alabama. A health issue sent me home, but being home near a real medical facility will keep me healthy. I gave most of my tools and wood away to a young Afghan that is attempting to make some toys. I feel I launched him into the 21st century with some plans, and good pieces of wood I had shipped over to myself there. Hopefully he will find a way to send me pictures and I will show them off for him.
As for the future, I will continue on with my “BIG BOYS TOYS” . Our granddaughters are sure glad that Pa-Pa is home and will benefit from the ideas I have put put on the back burner for some time. Since it is getting near spring I think an outdoor play house will be coming along real soon. One with a lot of “gingerbread trim” around the top.
Of course the “honey doo” list will be full too.
