Phatman --- I will PM right after this note. Just waiting on weather (and a couple of big, hefty helpers) for the install.

FlyBoy --- Hey, Congrats on breaking the chains! But no work related excuses now except for "Honey Do's".

I'm up for a BusNut meetup. Anytime this weekend would work fine by me.

And...Buzz is DONE!. Got the last sculpting material and some paint on. He is now a true RedNeck!




Closer to how he'll be seen from ground level.

Also made (what I hope is) progress on the doghouse design and will hand the drawings off to the sheetmetal shop manana. Man...it has been a bear so far.


ONWARD!

Thanks guys...it was a fun one.

Nothing on my FB page but I do have a few Flickr albums that have some art projects as well as the Shorty...going back for too many years now.

Looks like Buzz should get welded in his place of honor sometime on Friday...if the helpers show up.

Congrats on your new "baby" ANY duck with any sense should love having a big bird to hang with. IF I don't have to be out of town this weekend I plan to find Rehab and meet some of the Houston area group. If there is a planned time, please let me know..
Again Congratulations.

With this Sunday being Easter, I doubt if many of us can get away from the family. How about us Houston area folks plan on meeting at the RE:Hab next weekend.

Tango - You said Sunday was a good time at the Rehab ?

If that is the case, Sunday would be a good time for me. Let's see what we can come up with.

I got the PM Tango. Thanks

Cadillac. You know you are welcomed here anytime my friend. You better come to stay awhile though, cause with the the knowledge you have, you're probably not gonna get any sleep. There are quite a few of us just in the HOUSTON area. I would imagine trying to get most of us together is like trying to heard cats.
