I thought about the train station, but Ive had enough of retail sales to last me 100 lifetimes.
giving me a chance to use up of some of that 8/4 maple that is just taking up so much wall space.
Nothing fancy, no fancy joinery, just a colorful cart for a block party.
I crawled below my house and spent 40 minutes rummaging through the old bicycles, was going to take a couple of 26 inch tires and use them for wheels. But then the bushings/bearings dont match up, Id have to start running around trying to fit them, epoxy them in, have to buy an axle, so I scratched the idea and went back to my original plan, well, the second plan. Plywood wheels, first choice was just a platform with 4 inch castors.
might have been a mistake, my back isnt ready for jointing and planing yet.

Interesting point you make Allen about the $25. I was packing away some old photos and memorabilia the other day and came across my a stub for my first international flight air ticket. It was to London from Johannesburg. At the time, the ticket cost R315 rands which with the Rand Dollar exchange rate at the time made the ticket $420 US (yeah sounds totally crazy in the way the bankers have us thinking today but the dollar back then was weaker than the Rand).
Today that flight will set you back around R9000 today which is around US$ 1058. Given the time span we talking about around 35 years ago thats not bad at all considering inflation and cost of fuel today versus back then. US Gasoline was around 62 cents in 1977 if we use that as a benchmark to what the airline industry would have been paying relative to what they having to pay today. Its no wonder the airlines keep on having difficulty. Of course volumes are another aspect to consider.
But all this talk of impulse buys......stand up the person who has not sucumb to an impulse buy. I would like to shake your hand whoever you are if you exist.

I asked this question of a neighbourhood activist when we were walking through a bad area, and I saw satellite dishes. She said, "They get them for a small deposit, sometimes with a free trial period, then don't pay, and by the time the satellite company gets around to coming for the dish, about nine months have gone by. Then they go to another satellite company."
