Happy T-Day y'all. There are only four days each year I notice in their passing. Starting with the first of each year the four are: Juneteenth (19th of June), Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and MsBubba's B-Day (December 22, the most important day of the year). Of the four Thanksgiving is the most enjoyable.

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great Turkey Day.

This morning I found a little time for the shop in-between making dinner rolls for our contribution to the feast. MsBubba asked for a small box to hold her Mahjong tiles. How could I say no, besides it will be the perfect project after the long layoff.

After much laying out of tiles, butt scratching and, "whatever" from the boss I settled on dimensions and sawed the sides and ends to final size along with truing the boards.

You can't see much, they are stacked to the right of the #4. That may be all the shop work for the day. 

It is almost time to start getting ready for the turkey. I'll be social, may even put on a stain free and clean t-shirt for the big event.

See you guys on down the road,



  1. Ken,

    Happy Thanksgiving. I had to look up Juneteenth as I had never heard of it. Interesting. I'll observe it in 2017.

  2. Andy,

    I hope your T-Day went well, as always way too much food but it was good to be with friends.

    Juneteen marks the beginning of the the US living up to the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence "...We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness...". My dream is someday we truly will.


  3. Hear hear Ken, the day not just the US but the whole world hold these to be truth would be the day...
    To truly be thankful.

    In the mean time here is hoping Thanksgiving found your corner of the world at peace with itself and you enjoyed the company...

  4. Bob,

    Thanks....The turkey was good as was the visit.
