    Been Gone So Long

    Thought I better Start Here.
    Hey Folks,
    Greetings to the new guys and hey to you long timers
    Took some time for a long overdue update.
    Thanks for the interest.
    The Garagemahal is more for staging and storage than a shop at the moment. Winters coming, we'll be making some sawdust. Cabinet saw, air filter, DP and a temp DC are tuned and in place. I've been having so much fun in my new digs, I forget why I bought this place.
    Still unpacking and working on the master suite.
    I've been spinning CDs at the communities radio station. I do Jazz, Women in Jazz , Blues, and (believe it or not, Homie does) a Folk music program.

    I've been spending a lot of time at North House Folk School. Kind of "Day Care for baby boomers".
    They have a home built 50 ft Schooner that I have worked on as a deck hand. I start my OUPV (captains) training in Dec.
    In addition, I was the G.E.B (guy at the end of the board) for a cedar strip canoe making class. Fascinating process. The whole class is on my short list.
    I volunteer for some of their events and made chile for 200 people last winter for the Winter Gathering

    Started guitar lessons today, doing some target shooting. and cutting wood for winter.

    Never an end to the adventure.
    Take care I'll be checking back with you when and if things calm down.

    Great to see you Tyler. Looks like you're having too much fun.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    Tyler, looks like you gotten into the swing of being retired. A friend of mine took-up college classes after retirement. I think he ended up with just about every degree and certificate that they offered after a while.
