Upright


More books


And even more books

1. O My!
That cabin looks like one I was in in AK!

It was about 18' x 15', and I was actually envious of the space since I'd been living in a 10' x 12' wall tent that summer! :rofl:

Love that cabin picture! ...and glad you made more space for yourself at your place! :pals:

7. Well, it's a bit long, but I'll try to give a short version.
My children were stealing my car, my daughter's boyfriend was breaking
glass, household and automotive.
The project I was working on ended, with at least a year before the next
project would get to the shop.
I took my unemployment and worked a side job, cleaning a local bar after
closing,
I came home one night at about 3:am from that job and my computer had
been stolen. I said SCREW IT, you are all on your own.
Tucson is an easy town to be homeless in.
God weather, good people.
Work picked up about six months later than expected,
and I'm all better now.

:hu:

2. I have two questions
Did you get your nice new bookcase at Ikea?
And do you still listen to your record albums on a turntable?
Actually, I have three questions.
The third one is: Have you ever built a house by hand with that neat-looking book?

4. No, I got it at Target.
I have no turntable, but I have a close neighbor that does.

No, I've not built a home by hand, much to my disappointment. :cry:
