I've spent some time contemplating my next build.

That didn't take long - there isn't going to be one! :lol:

I have 3 years and a significant chunk of change invested in THE BIG BARRA BOAT. I am over it - just want to get this thing on the water.

:lol: Wanna bet :?:
Larry, next litter I want one.
Please.
If it was up to me you could have this one. She's real cute when she's asleep, otherwise she's 8 pounds of non-stop trouble. Hard not to love a puppy though :D

Congrats on the puppy Larry! That pup will make you young again! Hmmm....maybe I should get a puppy :lol:
Makes me feel old keeping up with her and keeping her out of trouble. If she's awake, she's getting in trouble.
How are you going to fit in the bed now Larry :lol:
I ain't very big and the more warm dogs in bed, the better I like it. It was 27 degrees this morning. Pup needed to go out at 0400 and I woke up Mrs. Cracker to take her out. I didn't want to get up. Not a good idea on my part :help: I ended up out in the frost with a wide awake and ready to go puppy. So it goes, might as well stay up, build a fire and start the day early :D

This ole' Squirrel has been runnin' extra fast on the gubment treadmill since first of November. Makin' extra $$$ for epoxy & stuff. Gotta make 30% more this year to make up for the soaring greenback. :doh:

Definitely no boat building going on but it's been one extremely weird fall. Temps in the 50's, 60's & 70's. No snow and none in the immediate forecast. I did manage to destroy my Python Drive. Long sad story. I might explain that later.

Firewood - check.

Nice looking puppy - check.

Larry, I think we're all ready for you to start another project. What's it gonna be?
