    The shop project is moving along, I installed 18 LED shop lights today and I have a Mr Cool minisplit heat-pump on order for both heating and cooling. The pex tubing in the floor is for wood boiler heat. 100_0002.JPG 100_0001.JPG

    Gabby, grandma and I are attempting to raise a granddaughter. We love her , however, her actions really make it hard. Angry with her parents, she is not easy to have around. It is getting better, but soooo slowly. I really wish you well on your journey. Doug

    I've been away for too long. So, I'll keep the update as short as I can.
    Brain preps - I finished the first degree. Got a new job. Now, I'm almost halfway through a master's degree.
    House preps - We moved out of the apartment in 2017 and bought a small townhouse. It's a good neighborhood with access to woods and water if need be.
    Other preps - I've been setting up a security systems, reinforcing locks, doors, windows, etc. I have also been rebuilding more of the food preps that were used up when I was laid off and returned to university.

    I hope everyone is still plugging away and doing well. Zimmy, the shop looks awesome! Gabby, I'm devastated that a family member would do that to you.
    Hope to catch up with you guys soon.
