Ticket? Heck no. I was counting on Obama to buy it for me. He's spending money like he has it and I figured it was the least he could do.

Looks great Denis

How do you keep your work space so much cleaner than mine? By the end of a boat project my garage looks like a tornado hit it.

neat?????

Post by Denis » Wed Apr 15, 2009 7:53 am

Hmmmm

Perhaps I should post a pic of my basement workshop lol

We don't get tornadoes often but something has hit mine lol.

It is actually neater when I'm building a boat because i don't have much room and have to have things tidied up so I have a safe place to work, Right now I have 10 kitchen cabinet doors all over the place for paint.

We have been building the canoe at the Peterborough Rona store and the mess we have is behind the canoe lol

There are still draw tickets available Folks. Glen didn't buy them all.
