    New lathe arrival - and now on its feet! Pics!

    But only to Phoenix. I am going to go get it tomorrow. It'll be a 200+ mile round trip.

    Seem the trucking company doesn't come to my part of the state except on Fridays. Since last Friday and this Friday are holidays, they seemed to be willing to let me wait until next week Friday! Not!

    Got on the phone this morning looking for explanations about why the tracking showed it at the delivery terminal and that I would be called to arrange a delivery time and I hadn't heard anything since. That's been the situation since Dec. 24th. I ran out of patience and started calling.

    There are always reasons to go to Phoenix, so I am preparing my list and I will be out of here early in the AM. Camera in hand.

    Didn't you just call me "young lady" a few days ago? Made me feel real good, too.

    Well, in terms of decades, I'm still in single digits!

    I know how exciting it is to pick up a new lathe. I can hardly wait to see pictures of you and the lathe in the turning shack.

    I remember when I picked up my lathe at the Richmond symposium. The anticipation was just like when I was a kid and Christmas was coming.

    Have fun, be safe and turn on!
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.
