    Don is sleeping again

    It's Friday and I'll be heading to the farm in Va to finish up setting deer stands and do a little work on the farm. Plus a surprise half bushel of crabs for Lunch to my friend.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Give the guy a break. He's probably busy. Here, let me chime in with some inspiration as to how to spend your weekend: http://holidays.bfn.org/xmas/countdown.html

    I mentioned some time back that I had spoken to the director of a crematory here in Boise about building some urns for them to place on their display shelf. I visited with him this morning and he was more than accommodating, even showing me some of the items that another craftsman in the area is supplying. I got some measurements, talked about his mark-up, and when I could have product to him. He told me the locally made boxes were his best selling items and he would be happy to take what I made - first on consignment, but then to purchase as inventory should my design turn out to e a good seller.

    It's a small step, but an important one! I'll do a cleaning in the shop this weekend and start building a pine prototype. I promised hims several urns for display in two weeks.

    I don't wanna do nothing this weekend.

    My brain hurts from work the past couple of weeks, and my home pc just died on me. Well, one of my home PC's, but it was my main one...

    But I'll probably be doing some painting and getting the kitchen ready to install some new flooring...
