Father ,watch over her. Be in coma couple days. Its a second cousin thats still fighting lung cancer, this is a regular cousin. Both pretty ladies. Lookers often have a rougher go at life. Anyway, no expressions of sympathy required but all thoughts get heard where it counts. I had just never heard of that kind of operation. It may give her back life without the 02 tank and that'll be better.
Prayers going her way!

I also will remember her in prayer.

I baked two cherry pies tonight. Scratch crust and fresh frozen sour cherries...

Oh yea. I finished my 7 pieces of stainless too.

Much obliged. Dozen sentences for your kind one: My comment about prayer... well for example I work with a follower of Odin. So theres that. Generation before me is getting pretty scarce but in this one our family is still a formidable prayer force. Leastwise it must be because she is currently naturally aspirated and that has to be a giant happy for her as it is for us. Mindblowing surgery. Complications of course could be forthcoming but prognosis sounds encouraging.

Nothing exciting, no photos. But I got my running board apron I have been working on about finished up. Got some cracks welded. First time I have fired up my torch since I moved. Got a little shrinking and stretching done (don't you always go to far and have to go backwards? LOL) and will get it finished up tomorrow I think.

Well, If you weren't so far away, this would be your piece.

Actually, I was pretty dog gone excited about how my first pie came out. Even my crust was flaky!

When you get that good with apple pie, I will have to fabricate a reason to come down there...

I AM hoping to get my "stuff' together and deliver the Chevelle to Wytheville VA in a week or so, but it's quite far from Chattanooga to just drop by..

I made an adapter for the booster rod attachment with requisite redundancy. Grade 8 hardware.

You know, I'll bet some good juicy Fugi apples would make a good pie!

I have been to Wytheville many times. It is along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Parkway used to be one of our favorite motorcycle destinations when we were riding. If you can, ride a little of it while you are down south even if you have to do it in the pickup.

If you do extend the trip and turn it into a short vacation, the apple pie will be waiting.

Yes, there are three attachments/pivots that came with vinyl lock nuts which are next to useless. All need corrections.

No Apple Pie here, Mmmm Now if you did a blackberry cobbler better than my Grandma did that would be worth the cost of a trip. Mmmmm I love blackberry cobbler served warm with a scoop of ice cream on it. Oh my that is heaven...

Now on to better news... I was awoken this morning to the sound of woodchucks chuckin wood! I looked out front to see what was happening wasn't woodchucks but my contractor laying out materials to build the walls of the new shop today. They started about 7:30 am and had the majority of the framing done at quitting time. There still a couple of header beams to go up but they plan to start sheeting it tomorrow and figure that will be done at the end of the day. Monday is truss day so progress is finally happening. The floor pour will be the last step I believe after the building is complete.

So the new shop is finally getting done. This has been too long to make happen but at least it is happening.. WOOOOOO HOOOOOO
