    santa must be mad at me:)

    was out in the shop yesterday and was making good head way, then this am i had a top panel in my hands and stumbled over the scrap bin, which made us both go to the floor and the panel hit on one corner with me still hanging on.. well it put two ugly cracks in it and it was already rough sanded to size so now i am trying to find enough boards to make another than match up right and its not going well the old adage its just wood well it might be but it has to match and that doesnt always come easy...

    Aww, I'm thinking Santa was just tired. Had a big night last night, other wise he would have made sure to take care of his favorite michigan elf!

    Glad you were not hurt Larry. You can always make another panel, but old bones heal slow. Not that you're old mind you....just sayin

    It has to be hard to keep balance with a heart that big
    Santa definitely has you on the good, not naughty list.
