my horizontal surfaces!? I’ve not had much time (at least by my standards) to tinker in the shop the last week or so, and when I last left it, I’m quite certain it was clean and things were in order. I went out last night and the place is a disaster! Every horizontal surface covered!

Which one of you dasterdly LJ’s stole my flat surfaces and what’s the ransom? I want them all back!

:-)

Check with David. He has a habit of doing late night shop visits.

It certainly wasn’t me. There aren’t any horizontal surfaces in my shop either.

I’ve got some extra pencils if you can’t find yours.

Wife: “You just have stacks of stuff on all of your horizontal surfaces!”

Me: “Ever tried to stack stuff on vertical surfaces?”

While I can use all the horizontal surfaces I can get my hands on, a quick look around the shop will let you know I’m not the guilty party… nary a one to be found.

Obvously confession is not good for the soul. Someone is still guilty.

It could be that the guilty party is not standing up to the task of being truthful.

I looked under all of my piles. No new surfaces there, Betsy.

Found one surface lurking around the table saw. The culprit also brought back my calipers, pen knife, my notes notebook, my bench sweep and 6 pencils. What a nice guy.

Glad to know that I’m not the only horizontal-surfaced challenged person on this site. I can spend time cleaning and straigtening and one project later wonder where all that “clean” went.

the guilty party might have been raising his/her hand but you just couldn’t see it behind stacks of stuff
