This old fat retired country boy wishes to welcome another. I built a 20X30 shop last summer and still don't have it as ready as I want. But when I say I built it, that is exactly what I mean. My son and I mixed all the concrete for the floor and sawed the 5X5 uprights for the framework, plus we set the roof trusses and finished it ourselves. I admit I was so tired I had to sleep on my own side of the bed at night but we got it all boxed in between rainstorms. So now, if the weather ever breaks, I hope to finish it and start smashing my fingers by spring.

Jack good luck on your shop-your progress and mine seems to be the same--I don't have a son or big enough grandson to help- so you have a blessing-let me know your progress?

Yeah, I pretty much have everything right here but the downside is I live on 3/4 of an acre of land with neighbors on every side possible of me. But the wife's family all lives within a mile of us and mine isn't too far away. Gonna have that land and seperate shop one day..

I go through the outskirts of Marietta quite often on my way to Columbus, Ohio to my Dr. Marietta is one of the oldest river towns around, dating I believe a few years older than Louisville, Ky. A person could fill a book with it's history.

I am on the wrong side of 60 to make too many big plans, but I still like to daydream about what I would like to do. My wife thinks I'm nuts to go over to the shop on a cold, windy day, build up a fire in the old barrel stove, and sit and just admire my machinery. And I guess I am a little nutty to do this, but I always figured that if one enjoyed doing something, then they will be the happiest doing it. At least I don't watch TV all the time as she does. All she watches is junk such as "As my Stomach Turns," "My days on others' wives" and The Old and the Reckless, or some such stupid stuff. And she calls me nutty?
