I bet the Hush Puppy landed in the chair just before the pictures. Prior to that Doug probably made frequent use of the chair. And thank heavens for alcohol eh Doug?!

The new carpeting is in!! The new shelves are up and the Phone Room is ready for "today." After 8 Hours I am beat. Just had a real hot shower and a good stiff drink. I am very happy with the end result (not finished). This was Five 8+ hour days to accomplish this. ....Kiddead


Ok Doug, just from the effort you described, I'm feeling like a lazy (beep).  Going to put some time in organizing my little corner.
The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.

What a job!  These photos are good to show my wife either how lucky she is since I'm nowhere near this level of collecting...

...or how bad it can get over the next decade or so.  Ha!  Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing Doug!
