    Surprise Gloat

    Good Morning:

    Yesterday I went with LOML to our favorite local hardware/lumber place. Drew will know which one--it's native to the Island here.

    I'm not sure whether LOML was watching me pitifully hobble around the store or just embarrassed over calling me "Sylvia" loudly in a parking lot yesterday "Who is Sylvia?" (I guess the honeymoon is over), but out of the blue he said, "ok, go pick out a table saw."

    I'm very sorry I couldn't consult my "family" first, but I couldn't risk the passing of such a generous moment........

    I hopped, skipped, and jumped over to my favorite power tool guy....and picked out the following:

    Is that really a table saw or just a box.

    Congrats!

    on break for a few more days, boss. I thought steady on 2 feet might be a good idea. And I have to put it together too......next weekend you'll have sawdust pics.....

    Woo-hoo! Congrats, Cynthia. Like Stu, I've seen good comments about that saw.

    And on the Cynthia/Sylvia thing, I'll bet he's just taking advantage of the fact that he can outrun you right now.
