Don,

Looks like a pretty cool group. It's going to take me a while to get though that application though. I do like the fact that it's not like most groups where the application is just fill in your name and send in your money.

My new grinder is on the truck for delivery anytime now according to the Fed_ex website. So other stuff to do today!

Shop is coming along well though!

We got home about 6:30 P.M. yesterday after driving thru heavy, heavy rain for 7 or 8 hours. No damage here at all except our lime tree was uprooted.

i suspect, though, that I could get a new roof if I was physically able to climb up and inspect it. I'll have to talk somebody into going up and inspecting it. I love new roofs paid for by State Farm!

Are you in Corpus? We drove right past yesterday afternoon. You'll get the handshake the first time you visit me.

Welcome to the TKCA! You should have attended our first new show at Roundrock last weekend.

My Mom and I had a great time! And I sold out on Saturday afternoon! 9 folders, all gone!

Don I knew there was something I forgot to ask you last Saturday, The Secret Handshake. I am glad you came through the storm alright and it was a real pleasure to get to meet you last weekend. Thank you for taking the time out to talk to me it was nice of you.

Hey lunch bucket, now that you're all settled in and have traded in your Hawaiian shirt and flip flops for a 4x4 and beef jerkey, why don't you show these guys some pics of the last folders you just made. Especially the one with bolsters and carbon fiber.

Chris
