I've been walking on my lip for the past few days. My son left yesterday after a 2 month stay with me to go back to Argentina where he has been living and working. I don't know when I'll see him next.......
So today I pulled myself together and figured I'd drown my sorrows in this place. It's the only place around here that has some exotic wood. And I bought a little piece of Zebrawood and a piece of Gum. Don't know which variety of gum tree it is, but I liked the way it looked. Chuck is going to come in and say the gum wood is ugly because of the different colors.... But I like it.
When I got home I found i'd received an order from this outfit that I had previously raved about. I thought it was nice that he added some sheets of very fine sandpaper and a sanding disk to the order for free. So I got my first shellac and some aniline dye. There were a couple of other things, but I can't show them to you because of the upcoming BOX SWAP.
It finally stopped raining, and LOML will be home tonight. So all in all, things are looking up. well, sort of.
