    this is what happens when a flatworker runs out of projects

    first time since nov 2008 I don't have any projects to build. I feel lost. wandering into the abyss, I just hope the cookies that Ive been promised are sugar free.

    Looks like a fine bowl there, Allen. If them cookies ain't sugar free, just pretend they are.

    Lol, presuming he can find his way back.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    the good thing about turning wood, its pretty quiet. I can listen to the radio, have the doors open, not worried about annoying nosy neighbors looking to complain to anyone that will listen.

    Im waiting on my daughter to finally tell me shes getting married so I can start on a dining room table and a few other odds and ends for her.

    I just don't have anywhere to store the stuff.
