My Move Is Complete
#11
  
We closed on our home in Orlando this past Thursday. Household goods delivered on Friday. Boxes are everywhere and the garage is a mess. Now if I can just find which boxes have which tools! It’s nice to be in a house and not in a hotel.

Awesome. Good luck on getting a "shop" set up.
I no longer build museums but don't want to change my name. My new job is a lot less stressful. Life is much better.

Congratulations!

One of my disappointments was that work stopped sending me to Dryden/Armstrong about the time that I saw some of your woodworking here.

I hope that your unpacking goes well.

FWIW, I am very fond of the milkshakes at Freddy's and their burgers and onion rings are good as well. The family is fond of Culver's. Both places do custard ice cream. There is a reasonable chance that the family and I will wind up at one of those 2 chain locations in your area on Friday 4/20.

Congratulations, Allan. The hard part is done; now you can take some time and get situated. You'll be making chips and sawdust soon.

Will definitely keep that in mind, Ken.  My daughter starts HS next year and is leaning toward Univ of Florida.  I have a feeling I'll be making more than one trip up that way.  I took a trip to our local Woodcraft yesterday.  Nice store, with knowledgeable staff.  They have more than the average WC here, which is nice.

Welcome to the land of liquid sunshine.
It’s currently pouring here near Melbourne.
I’m about 30 minutes south of Gainesville.

Sounds like we need another WN FL BBQ.

Good luck with that.  I labeled everything, and still had stuff missing.

Welcome to Florida.
 I liked Orlando when we were there.

I'm just about 1,400 miles west of you, so stop by if you're out driving around. Big Grin
