    On a bit of a high!

    My son and I are leaving tomorrow for West Chester, PA, to visit my brother. We're going to do a bit of golf, and two barbecue parties, including my brother's Father's Day party for the family. But first, my son and I are going to visit the MLCS/Penn State Industries Retail Store in Philadelphia, to stock up on a few minor things I need to get my box jointing and dovetailing career undeway, and also to pick up a couple of things that may come handy on my lathe.

    My bro and I fought like cats and dogs (real, slugging fistfights) when we were young, but now we're best friends, and don't get to see enough of each other. Yeah, I'm excited!
    Cheers,
    Roger

    Have a great time, Roger. Try not to leave TOO much money at Penn State.

    Sisters, too. I didn't grow up with any brothers, but had two older sisters. The oldest moved out when I was still in elementary school, but the other one used to kick my butt from one end of the house to the other on a regular basis. The last fistfight we ever had was the first one I won. (That was also the last time I've hit a girl.) She and I have been best friends pretty much ever since then, too.

    Roger, I know it is a great sacrifice to have to make a trip like that. Just grin and bear it and try to hold up under all of that pressure.

    Really Enjoy,

    Thanks, guys! We are having a great time, and we were able to stop into MLCS as we came into town. I now have all the parts I need to make dovetails and finger joints, turn some elementary bowls, and do routered bowls. I'll go crazy when I get home.

    The drive down here was terrible. We were driving through a very heavy rainstorm until we turned south, but we prevailed. My truck got very dirty, though. I wanted to show it off to my brother all cleaned and waxed.
    Cheers,
    Roger
