Oh - Zee, another VERY important addition to your new shop - make sure there is a nice little apartment for the shop elves to live in! Stock it with cookies and beer, couch, small TV set, and hope some good elves move in.   :DrinkPint:

No elves available. You have them all.

And...if I stock with cookies, beer, couch, TV...why would I share that with anyone?
(Change beer to vodka or wine...and we're talking heaven.)

It might be interesting to see  how California's tourism business is doing since the time he ran away from Pennsylvania.

It's booming.  They come to see me!  I've got my own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  It's between Bozo the Clown and Rin Tin Tin.

And just to be clear...I didn't run away from PA;  I escaped!

I knew that one would get a response.  :Lol:

If you do get Elves, watch out for those pesky Elves impersonators. ;)

bumzies.

New shop is getting smaller and smaller.
And...after talking to another builder...we're colliding with upcoming holidays. Will probably put off building to January.
Must have kitchen for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Yes...I admit it...my shop has a lower priority to family and T's food.

But it's going to happen. Yes. It must.

It would help if I had that muddy picture of you know who.  :naughty:

Take a stand man.  Put on a pair of overalls and a shirt with a pocket, get a big claw hammer and stand your ground. Now you can paint it pleasant earth tones and decorate in French country motif, but, DO NOT GIVE UP SPACE. I'm going to send in reinforcements  >:D :lolb:

Have no fear. I have a minimum.

But yes...when it comes to food and wife, I'm a wienie too.

When I built my shop in 2008 I put radiant heating in the slab.  Highly recommended for even, dry heat.

I also have a good number of 220V outlets and a large panel.  In addition, I put in as many 110V outlets as I could, so I'm never far from one no matter where in the shop I'm working.  Still have one spot I wished I'd put one.

I am more than embarrassed and would not blame anyone for sounding a 'pffft' at me.
I've not paid any attention to the forum, my friends that is, for a while.
Looking in tonight, I get an overwhelming feeling like I'm joining a forum (this forum) for the first time.
I think of you all quite often, but unfortunately, I'm still in "squirrel" mode. (Think of the movie 'Up').

A little update...

Youngest is getting married in a week. Saturdays are spent practicing the 'father-daughter' dance. The family has high expectations of me but I know I'll simply break down and bawl in the middle of it. If I'd had a son, I could kick him out. I know boys.  ;D But I have two daughters. Any father with a daughter knows what that means.  ;D Your heart always hurts.

Much of the time is getting ready for the home renovation. Starts in January. I'll have a new shop in April. Trying to figure out the timing to get a mill and lathe.
Getting ready for the renovation includes a new kitchen. My wife's shop. I want her to have whatever she wants (don't we for our shop?) but I'm responsible for clean up and have to tread a fine line of saying nothing when she makes a choice and attempting to make it sure it is easy to clean.

Also planning a trip for my dad's 90th. Major milestone. And I'm a fortunate man that my parents are still alive as well as my wife's...and we're nearing retirement!

Anyhow...just a quick update. Apologies to my friends. I'm ignoring you but I'm thinking of you.

As usual...that makes no sense at all.
