Built a few mangers this year myself...of course they are real ones to be put into real use by the sheep.
I have been asked about the sheep to be used in a local nativity scene as well, but when I told them they would have to transport them, I have not heard back from them.
As for the shop Rennie, I am the same way. I am particular about the cleanliness of my shop as well. Mine looks like a disaster as I am putting up a ceiling over the insulation and walls up as well, so everything is moved, but it drives me crazy.
As for your avatar picture Vaughn, what's up with the teeth? Cows don't have upper teeth silly, they have a palette the teeth crush the grass against!! I always laughed when I saw that Serta commercial with the counting sheep with braces. Sheep don't have upper teeth either!
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
