    ROAD TRIP!

    First, why don't we have a separate forum for road trips?

    Second, I spent this week on SoCal visiting friends and making Shaker boxes. It was a few days of R&R, badly needed. I was getting cranky and needed a change of scenery. I took the opportunity and I am in fine fettle again. It was a bunch of fun.

    On the way home today, I visited with Glenn Bradley and saw that gorgeous chest he is making up close and personal. Let's just say, pictures don't do it justice.

    And speaking of pictures, Glenn took one, so you'll have to wait for him to post it.

    glad you had fun on your trip carol,, them southern CA boys have always had a reputation of having a good time bout time a preacher came to set them straight and as for the separate forum there arent enough folks doing them and the interest isnt there from my perspective..

    It was indeed a wonderful visit from a very enjoyable lady. We were laughing about how our minds work in similar ways. Carol is a jig maker as am I and we both get a kick out of coming up with some clever way to do things safer, easier or more consistently. We got caught up in talking so much I didn't really give her much of a shop tour but, its her second visit so if there was anything she really wanted to see, I know she would ask . Glad you had a safe journey Carol and you sure seemed positively recharged by the time you got to my place so the R&R really worked. We can all learn a thing or two from that.

    If I include Cali in my bike trip this summer I am thinking I will need at least 2 weeks there. I'm planning a 3-4 week trip. Just do not know yet if it will be cross country or canada , nova scotia.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
