Oh, I'll bet.

Some damn lawn mowers are hogging up all the good work-space in the heated part of the shop. I'm finally going to get some decent space this evening.

I've been cleaning up both /2's and giving my R75 a face-lift in the mean-time.

Well, not my shop in St Charles.. but I haven't been back to my house in Rolla to check. People died in Rolla, though. I guess I'll find out when school starts again.

I'm on WD40 can #3!

I thought the 10-gallon Hoske would have drawn more comments..

What should I work on tomorrow?

Sorry for the slow responses. I get the Yahoo slash2 group stuff in "digest" format. This allows for quick skimming of the days conversation. Then I cut and paste what is important to me into an email to myself and squirreling it away in my Yahoo folder of vintage stuff.
