Blog Sloth

I'm a little out of order, chronologically speaking, with this post. These pictures of the crib building were actually taken before I left town for Swing Vote a couple of weeks ago. And there has been more progress since these pictures, I just don't have pictures of it yet...

Dad's Toy Shop

Paradise in Missouri? Doubt it but the Grizzly Store in Springfield does mean there is one redeeming feature to the place.

Our flight out of Springfield to Chicago was delayed an hour and a half so we landed just as our connecting flight to Washington, DC was taking wing. Three extra hours added in Chicago saw us landing at Dulles about 10:30pm last night.

Dueling Banjos, Anyone?

Ok, I'm not one to get creeped out easily but....

We arrived in Springfield at 10:00pm last night. Of course all the eating establishments in town closed at 9:30... Except the Kum & Go.. I kid you not.... Mmmm.. Pizza and Beef Jerky are mighty tasty in the middle of the night.

So Girls... Given that we have had long discussions on the topic, you had better go online and vote...

It seemed so wrong to walk into this place without Grandpa Smith...

Oh, and how did I get here?

It's a long story...

Dew Rag

Yeah, that's me in the the Dew Rag. It's been hotter than blue blazes in the woodshop lately so production sorta slowed down. However, this is the last of the raw wood sanding and either tonight or tomorrow the sealer and stain go on!!

Opps... I was just summoned by Miqui. "Uh, Dad... Mom needs you...."

One entire wall of clothes rod seems to have pulled right out of the wall.. Hummmm.... Off to Home Depot we go....
