Well finished loading everything up. Went to get my spare tire of my big open trailer so I'd have two just in case. Found out some sorry @#%%#'*&@#$*! stole it. Happened in the last couple of days. Doubt I will but if I find out who did it, it will be a bad day for them!!!

@Eric Rorabaugh, 3 LFRB's went out yesterday. Should be there Thursday. JimBob should contact you when they arrive, or at least tell you where to retrieve them. I think some of the Cholla end grain pieces might be too thin. I forgot to add the thickness of the 1/8 saw blade when cutting most. 15/16" is what they are, but the long grain pieces are 1 1/4" x 4 square. In the box with the Tea Light pieces, one is complete. It is in the center area of the box. The packing material is mostly Cholla dust. Toss it or use it mixed with resin to make something that might look like particle board form. Agarita is in it's own box.

Wish I could go. Three times now I've purchased a space and could only make one of them. It might be that something is telling me that Waco is not a good place for me. Those wild and dangerous Texans, you know. :cowboy:........... Jerry (in Tucson)

Eric, I'm glad that you were not on I-30 going thru Dallas during a high traffic time. That would be a whole different level of suck, and likely different choices of words for the description.

Glad that you made it.

Don't know where midget @Tony will be hanging out but I am sure I will see him somewhere. I hang out at Turn Tex (Curtis) sometimes.
