closing out a tough year...



This is our righty across the street neighbors. A nice retired couple who really get into holiday decorations....


and our lefty across the street neighbors...


We're not getting into the competition....


12/19.. snow for Christmas maybe ???



Max is chillin' out by the tree..

The ghost of yard sale past...

and then there was Christmas

I'm holding a stack of blank DVD's and "V - The Series" :)

Gifts from our children and their families



Carol loves to read and Carol loves Amazon, so what better than a Kindle to kindle her passions

And me.. after 44 years of turning wrenches, I finally got a home for my tools :)

This things taller than me!

I SO deserve this!

The fire is lit ...

A couple more presents from 'Santa'.


a white Christmas.


How I spent my Christmas vacation...


I kinda thought I'd just chill out for the week but Carol had other plans...


okay.. so we bought the floor for the dreaded red slut room 8 months ago.

aint never put a floor in before.....


so we're spreading it out over 3 days to make sure we get it right

day 2.. another 3rd

Carol at the saw...

bringing it home..

DONE!


and..

"Just a song before I go, to whom it may concern.." 30 - odd years of varying technologies all come together.. I NEED music.. real music.. not pod music... So that's what the server room on the back side of the wall is for...

Reel to reel? (because thats where all my Broadcasting School "stuff" resides on)...

120 watts RMS (IE: HORSEPOWER) 1978 integrated amp and seperate tuner.. driving 2 3 foot tall sealed tower speakers to feed 44,000 mp3's... my own little nirvana of sound.. so what would be the very 1st song played?

Suite: Judy Blue Eyes / Crosby Stills and Nash.. like passionate sex for your ears... my brother Jerry would be proud
