If it were just a bit colder, we'd have a real mess. Right now it is pouring rain, and the tops of the big pines are icy, along with power lines. It is just beginning to freeze about 8 ft off the ground.
He loves to create and build things. And over the past couple of years he's discovered an interest in building musical instruments. He has bought several guitars, a drum set, a keyboard, a harmonica, and a few other things. But recently, he has discovered Lap Steel Guitars.
Before Christmas, he decided to build one, just to see if he could.
He didn't bother being fancy with the first one, in fact it was never even coated, just raw wood.
But, it plays pretty music, so he decided to build another one.
Here is the glued up blank, walnut center, maple white strips, and

I don't mean I overworked or anything, it has just been a week that I'd like a do over on.
Sunday, Flash the Wonderdog got out, ran all over the neighborhood for about 2 1/2 hrs before we finally gave up. As I was leaving for Church, he ran into garage, and I let door down, then dragged him back through the house and into the fenced yard. This is him as a little shaver, now he is about 4 times this large and still looks the same.
Yesterday, he pulled the same trick, both he and Buddyboo were out. Buddyboo was standing barking at a tree, of course there was a cat up there. Caught him, then fixed the fence, again, different spot. Finally, Flash ran back into the garage, so I got him back in the yard, again. This only took about 2 hrs, lol.
There have been some family issues this week, stuff that we have no control over, but still have to think about. All I can say is that God is in Control, and he knows who the instigators are, and they will pay in his time. You may hide your evil ways from the world, but you can't hide them from him.
