    I always loved the FJ1200 and never got to buy one. They were always just out of my reach.

    95471DFC-A38E-4B7D-87DF-1234583DD19A.jpeg I get lots of mugs too.

    My favorite is the Starbucks mug from several years ago.

    A couple of months ago, Ken brought one to me, but because I already have three, I thought he should save it for someone else.

    These have a Lambretta on them, not a Vespa, but I like them a lot..

    Those 2x4s will come in handy making the tip over guard.

    Don't be silly - those look like 1x4s... obviously, he will be building a solid sun shade over the top of the scoot. :-)

    They're 1x2s, I'm finishing off the boat house and putting chicken wire up in the rafters. I'm tired of the damn starlings nesting in my stuff and poop galore Lol I want to knock this out and then get a coat of polyurethane on it before winter hits .

    I would take a working toe over a phone anytime. For the record I inherited my wifes smart phone as my flipper was gonna cost more than her old phone on our new contract. The obvious factor being that Verizon sells that new/old smart phones connections to everybody on earth cause now it beeps incessantly all day long with crap I didn't sign up for.
    Broken toe I place on a very high pedestal compared to my phone. Get well soon.
    Cast or a splint? In football we just taped the broken finger to it neighbor:lol2 But feet, we like to stand on them don't we.
    Those furring strips make for neat paneling. I know you didn't ask but they are spruce FYI. Up in Canada they saw any tree that will make a 1x4 and up(or pulp it) then ship it to us like we don't have any trees down here.

    I was splitting firewood with an axe and a log squirted off and bonked my toe. I burn 2 to 3 cords of wood every winter and cutting, stacking, etc is kind of my membership to Golds gym. lol (pardon the dog hair in this pic)

    Eric, I did that once when I was a kid..... my older brother was chasing me thru the house and as I rounded the living room fireplace my pinky toe got caught in a gap between two bricks. It was 90* to my foot. I just jammed it straight. Eventually it healed.
