    Where is Larry Merlau ? ** Heading Home **

    Well he showed up outside my shop to pick up something he sent on ahead for me to keep until he & Randi could stop by & pick it up.

    Just a little of his beautiful handiwork.

    A hope chest for a bride.

    While Larry & Randi were here we all had a nice fish dinner thanks to Larry & Randi & to short of time to visit. But it looks like Larry & I may be getting together to visit Grizzly, Western Tool & Hardware Sales in Bellingham.

    Looks like both Larry and the hope chest survived the ride west.

    I think Larry has met more Family members face-to-face than anyone else here.

    I do believe you're right Vaughn.

    He really does get around. He's got that wanderlust.

    Does this mean there's another sale going on at the Merlau hacienda back in Delton? I'm sure there must be wood?

    That chest is super, Larry.... Heirloom for sure.

    Glad it arrived, and hats off to Bart for taking care of it for you. Have a great time together, and then........

    Oh Karl

    there sure is wood in Larrys stash to be had, his shelfs are about overflowing.
    if he has more comming soon, some thinning of the stash is necessary. what do you need, red oak? white oak? cherry? Larrys got is all. Only problem is larry left me in charge and did'nt let me know when he is returning, so fast action is in the upmost importance.
    Larry, good looking chest, the bride will for sure be pleased. enjoy your trip and don't hurry home

    Yep...I been busier than a one legged man in a butt kicking contest, so the keys are no longer with me.

    About that face to face meet thing.....I bet if I counted em, I'd be a close second.....I guess I need to get out more, or go with Larry on his excursions. Problem with that is....I gotta work.....Larry leads a charmed life.

    Hey boss....I hope you ae enjoying your stay out there....would you bring me home a souvenir?.....something other than a T-shirt? I'm glad you brought the missus on the trip, she needs quality time giving you's the mono sound vs. stereo sound like our trip into cheesehead land? BTW, I got one of those big cold aluminum beverage containers left over from the wedding out in the fridge.....and I ain't makin a dent in it as busy as I have been, how bout when you get home you guys come over and help me out with it?

    Have fun

    Nice looking chest! And no, am not talking about either of the two gents in the picture!!!
    Beautiful work. Yeah, having met Larry in person, he is topnotch and genuine. Got to be careful using that word "genuine" the Belgians already bought Bud, don't want them buying Larry!
