Hi Everyone, Just a quick post to let everyone know that as I have REALLY settled into retirement I've finally (within the last year +) have been working on my layout on a regular basis. As I take in the net effect of retirement on my daily schedule (and I have other hobbies) I wonder how I ever had time to run a business!

I have links to my Flickr slide shows you can access on my website, but the important one is here:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/103194951@N02/sets/72157683576799481

...If you are already familiar with this slide show and haven't seen it in a while I would recommend scrolling to the end and working back as I am now trying to post updates at least once a month. I am really done commercially, so with what little spare time I have left (again, how did that happen?) I'll be exploring more ways to participate by sharing. I'm not to the FSM level (how George models so well that fast is beyond me) but hope to provide some entertainment.

Best to all, Bob

Looking Great, Bob

Bob,

Your layout looks fantastic, and will be stunning once completed. Your attention to detail is second to none. I see more progress as you mentioned in your opening post, since the last time I viewed your site. I surely wanted to attend that last structure show in Albany, but didn't make it. Oh well, perhaps another year if one is nearby you again. Thanks for sharing.

Rich

Dick Elwell & I had open houses on the Sunday after the Expo in November & they were very well attended. Both of us stayed open past our posted hours. Old friends & many new ones, too.
