I will not go into all the gory details, there is not much of anything more boring than someone else's medical condition but.....This time is special :-). The E.R. could have made a good porn movie, the nurse was young and beautiful with very long blonde hair and the Doc matched her in every detail other than her hair was a little shorter. The only thing missing was a good male lead.
Anyway, got up yesterday morning not feeling on top of my game but semi-functional. Even tried to get ahold of any of the "suits" to get someone to takeover my afternoon clients. No suits were available, I was functioning, and this pair of clients are among my favorite to work with, so it was off to work I go. I made it through the Brief and we, the clients and I, moved into the Simulator for four hours of sitting in a dark box with my pushing different combinations of buttons so as to make their life miserable. Me? I usually have a great time, said with a diabolical laugh.
Cutting to the chase, about the time the Sim came on full motion the Kidney stone kicked into overdrive. Whoo Nelly...push the Motion button to bring that sucker off motion (takes forever when you are in a hurry, which I was). After a visit to the head for a Porcelain Buick drive, I got a friend to drive me home, then MsBubba to drive to the E.R. and once they gave me the "happy juice" I went about casting the rest of my porn movie.
BTW, I have a high pain tolerance, not much slows me down.....this kicked my butt.
I did get a little done to the Tool Box before leaving for work and the E.R. I found a nice hunk of Red Oak, enough to make the upper skirt, and I got it rough dimensioned. I think there is also enough to make the top's dust skirt as well. If not, I'll use the cut offs of whatever I find for the rails and stiles. I should make some progress on the box as I expect to take a few days off while waiting for the stone to finish passing.
One other thing, while putzing around in the shop I found useable wall space for a Plano Vertical Glue Press, I expect I'll be seeing my UPS girl soon.
