Wow! You do beautiful work. I bet your customers were pretty happy to see the way it turned out.

I take it Bud, that these were not what you would refer to as "po folk"?

What is the kitchen counter made from?

"Po" only in the manner that the air plane is small, the corvette is old, and this last available building-lot on the golf course also faces an undesirable hi-way. Her Caddy and his "other SUV" weren't brand spankin' new they were probably a year old at the time. But yow, not the smallest house in the trailer park.

I see, so the "small" airplane was only a Lear jet, the "old" 'vette is a 2009, or maybe a 1965 worth a small fortune and the Caddy & SUV...well, how many cars can a person drive at one time anyway!

Not a Lear, I'm thinking it was a Beech King Air. Isn't that a six or eight passenger twin engine thing?

'67 as I recall.

Actually her father is the local Chevy dealer so I guess those two cars really don't count. They were probably just leased anyway.

Nice nice people, enjoyed working for them.

Actually he is the ring-leader of a dental group and has multiple offices and partners. The house alone only cost 1428 root canals. Piece-o-cake for a dentist who's on his stride.

I always wondered about that. So dentists work in the root canal economy, while us mere mortals still have to work with cash. Bummer.

I suppose some of them do. I searched the Internet but couldn't find conversion chart software for such things.

Yesterday afternoon I hung the light that the missus got for the nook. The light it throws gives the room a lovely warm glow at night.

I still can't understand why someone would spend a quarter of a million on a boat and apparently not have a $5.95 tide chart on board.

I did try a couple of pics at first light this morning when he was heeled over much further. They didn't come out well. I'm sure his insurance company would like to see this performance!

In both the photos above, you can see the bottom fairly easily. Where the small dinghy is actually dries right out at a zero tide. We get those right around new moon. Guess what time of the month it is now...right!

The black hulled sailboat belongs to our friend George from Saturna Island. His boat has a retractable keel so no worries about what the tide is doing.
