Yeah, but no time to post them just yet. Once I get through this weekend, things should start to slow down. Nothing exciting, but I am getting moved in and organized.

That's one helluva shop! I'm afraid that if I had a shop like that I'd never go outside to enjoy the fruits of my labor.

Look what the cat dragged in....

I've been a bit remiss. I've got some pics to post. Just been busy with so many other things... I'm going to be traveling for the next few days and maybe during the 'waiting for a flight' time I'll try and update this. (I've got some recreation trips pics to post too.)
