with it all said and done, today was pretty good. got a lot done on the grandfather clock. got a start on the cutting boards. when i went to hd to get the glue, i picked up a 4x4 of pt pine for my dad's mailbox post (and got to chuckle watching him try to figure out how it got there), and finally, walking into the local subway (for a rare sandwich from there, the wife frowns on them), and lo and behold there was one of my nieces. i was in such a good mood, i told the counter guy to add her tab onto mine. i think it was a nice surprise for her.
