Hand-made bolt-down steel gun safe.

Jim made me this wonderful ‘bolt-down” gun safe for Christmas. Plenty of room in there for all the ammo I received too.

So much click-bait, so little time…

Are Microsoft killing off the desktop version of Outlook by making it unusable?

Ginger and Lanie did some posing while I set up the lighting ready to take some pictures of the kids later this evening.

Now let’s add in some cats… Sprinkles has a look I have more often seen in classical paintings. This shot should probably be in a caption competition. +1

Back to the Bookcases – (See what I did there?) Today I got a chance to put the final coat of varnish on the backs of the bookcases. Then this evening I indulged myself with an orgy of nailing with the nail gun. It’s starting to look a lot like my plan. 2 pictures

Fishing on Pomme de Terre Lake – Working for yourself has its disadvantages and advantages. Seven day weeks and long hours are a couple of the disadvantages. One of the advantages is that when a friend asks if I want to go fishing, with a bit of re-arranging, I can ‘Hang spring cleaning’ and be free to go. One-minute read, 9 pictures

Portrait picture of Lanie and Getzger Cat

Blue Kitty on my desk (again) – Hopefully I don’t need to write any notes this morning.

This evening Lanie was inducted into the National Honor Society. Well done Lanie!!
