    Look who wandered in

    A couple tall guys with beards appeared at my shop today. One was pretty well behaved. The other got a little rowdy once he had a sharp thing in his hands.



    One said he was a moderator here, but I dunno - I thought moderators were either cute or could type with upper/lower case Yup, Larry Merlau, and his adult handler from the Houston area, Alan Bienlein.

    We had a delightful afternoon trading stories. Or at least I did, no matter what they say!

    Family visits are the best

    Fun times, for sure
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    I warned Alan not to let Larry off the leash. See what happens?

    Glad to see you all (er...y'all) got together. Looking forward to seeing more of the Texas visits, too.

    What a great time. I really enjoy these visits and the stories that go with.
