    Now this is truly weird: I loaded the map, then it autoloaded the pics. I clicked on a little tab for Photos and when the photos panned left to The Orange Peel, it had a "xxx.jpg by Mark Johnson" in the upper corner. :huh Pretty sure I've never been in downtown Asheville before. :deal

    If you enjoy riding up to the mountains with your family to choose and cut your tree, one of my neighbors is giving them away for free. There's a variety of sizes, & pretty nice shapes. I didn't see any "Charlie Brown" trees.

    They are on Wards Branch Rd, just off Hwy 321. About 20 minutes West of Boone. Bring a saw and wear boots or shoes with good grip, because it's steep. I got our tree a couple days ago, there were a few hundred (200-400?). Nobody was there, but a sign said "Be careful it's steep, take all you need for friends & family. God bless."

    They aren't bundled, so are bulky. Need a pick-up, or maybe you can wrap it up in a tarp?


    Ho! Ho! Ho! :freaky

    I wish, but that's the "walk-in beer eliminator" :flush

    but the beer fridge got delivered yesterday, together with a small sand-blasting booth. Painting 's done, new bars on the windows, floors sealed, stove moved, tools there, Indian put in the corner, and the guys are working on the workbenches now.

    And the first "bike" to work on is there too already: Sean crashed his scooter last Wednesday: broke the engine case/swing-arm in half :huh (he's ok)

    The elbow is good now, thanks.

    We should have the shop open in about two weeks.

    The Party is set for mid Januaryish. I need to check a few things before the date is set.
