Default Hi Gang

Just figured I'd post a little sumpin' sumpin' to let y'all know you haven't gotten rid of me; just
been a rough two months (today, in fact), and haven't felt much like doing much of anything, let
alone work in Bentley (not like the weather would let me anyway, since I'm of the mind these days
that Antarctica has been warmer than us here...) but I do have one bit of news: Menards had a sale
on "marble" countertops; $15 for a four foot section, and $25 for a six foot section. I have this wheeled
metal frame that when I got it, had some fiberboard as a top that was never properly attached. Well, with
this sale, Ken decided I'm gonna get a proper top to it, to have a rolling cart for the miter saw, or any other
work top I want to use it for. When we can get to Bentley (he's still buried behind approximately three feet of
snow that was plowed in front & beside him,) I'll post the project pics.

Other than that, I'm still dealing with some of mom's effects, and have put her car up for sale. I have two vehicles,
and I don't need a second car payment. Anyone in the Metro Detroit Area, the car is valued almost 12 grand, but I
have it at $10,800/Negotiable.

Have no fear Barb, we won't be gettin' rid of you. And a "marble" miter saw bench could be kinda neat! For $25, you probably can't get 3/4" plywood much cheaper than that.

Good to see you here again Barb. Summer is coming, so lots of time to take care of Bentley.

Don't worry if you're gone for a while... we'll leave the light on for you.

awww, thanks guys. Doug, Ken got me the 4' section to go on the top of this frame. Can't wait to get it put together. It's gonna rock! Wish I had a photo of the counter top we're gonna put on it; but, oh well.

Thanks guys, for the kind words. They go a long way... *hugs*

Glad to see you checking in, Barb. Hang in there it will soon be summer and the green grass will grow and the birdies will sing.
