Lovely wife is off to JoAnns and Michaels, probably a couple of other stops. The Grand daughter dog is asleep on the kitchen floor cause she doesn’t like coming to the shop.m We have been running here and there too much and I am traveled out. I also have some small projects to do in the shop now that the Grand son’s bookcase id out of the way.

I finally hooked up with one of the local woodworkers after we missed each other for a week. He had need for a delta contractor saw tune up kin and I had the kit but passed the saw on before we moved to Michigan. Glad to help out whenever I can.

Today I got the back door frame painted. Earlier this year, maybe it was last fall we changed the back door. Put in a door that opens out, not in. The old door opening in blocked access to the basement. So lumber of any size had to go to the kitchen first, then we closed the door and took it down stairs. Pani! Everybody thought we were a little daft, obviously we couldn’t put a storm door on it so we got a well insulated door. Funny thing! Now no one notices the change.

Going to spend the rest of the day sorting some hardware and puttiong it away, replacing a dial on an antique, 1941, desk phone, painting the shell on the phone, it is heavy metal. Maybe a picture and a bit of history later.

Still working on a shop tour to post, pictures are all sized now i have to write a bit of narrative that will convince readers that it is all in a 22 by 25 fuuo area of the basement.

I haven’t used this computer to blog before,. I rescued this machine just before it got toppled into a dumpster. Cleaded out the spider colony and the mouse poop and it makes a good addition for the shop. Get to find answers by just stepping a few feet to the side of the shop.

Ah, those tranquil moments in the shop with no one around to argue with but yourself.
