Good Spring time! I'm going out to a "fine" dinner with a local gal tonight -- seems like an appropriate activity for the First Day Of Spring. Strictly vegan food. I'm trying to recruit her as my fitness coach.
About fine wood working.... A fellow in this county is moving and must clear out the contents of an old barn, and he has a supply of wood for sale
. He describes it as "walnut, oak, pine slabs & lumber", and told me it is suitable for cabinetry and such. He said something about thicknesses generous enough to machine down to desired finish. From a distance it looked like a pick-up-truck full. No, not free, so I am violating the Code, but... if it is truly "art grade" wood.... One never knows about such "barn finds" until after a thorough inspection. Once in a long while there is a pearl. PM me.
To compensate for my sudden outbreak of commercialism, I just gifted two bicycles (Playa donations from last year) to neighborhood street urchins. (I rebuilt the one they trashed. Mishaps occur.)
Yep, fair amount of rain overnight. Maybe enough to soften an inch of the dirt streets here, so I can repair some potholes and washboards.
Six hours to dinner date -- I better start combing the welding slag out of my beard.
