I have not been in my shop since mid April taking a break. I have gotten into detailing cars. It’s been great weather here in Michigan and knowing winter is lurking out there somewhere I’m out of the basement. Just bought a Flex 3401 Forced Action Polisher lots of supplies and I having a great time. Think I will return to the shop late October. Hope all is well with all my buddies. Billp Look at that shine!!!

Hey Bill, nice to hear from you.

Wow, a Flex 3401? Forced Action is the best. Awesome.
Actually I have no idea what you are talking about, but it sounds really rad.

See you when the snow starts flying.

I hear you, Bill. It’s pretty hot in my shop these days, so I’ve been spending more time with my camera and my guitar.

Hey Bill,

Like you, I’m not in the shop much either.

Other stuff going on.

Take care,

I kinda envy you Bill…but am thankful that I have work going through the shop. . . and it’s cool in the shop. . . and I’m enjoying the work. Still haven’t gotten the boat in the water, but am sprucing it up on my break times, I’m sure the fish will understand. Best Regards, Stephen

Leaves are turning. Time to make some sawdust.
