It has been awhile since I have posted here. I was going to build a new
fly-tying desk out of mahogany over the holidays (at least to start) but
found out that I have cancer in my prostate and have been pretty much
involved with biopsies, MRI's and now have surgery scheduled for the
22nd of this month. I won't be able to lift anything for awhile but can
spend a lot of time in CAD getting my drawings up-to-snuff. I am going
to have 6 weeks off. I guess my wood stash will have to continue to dry
out in the shop (aka garage).
It has been C O L D here in the Boise area and has snowed quite a bit. I
haven't been keeping the shop heated but is stays above freezing. I
brought the Tormek and waterstones in just to make sure they survive the

Speaking of tying desks, did you catch Conan's tying desk this past
Fall? A beauty it is. I dabble (or is it dap-ple) in fly fishing when I
can find the time and the right water here in western Oregon. Thought
I'd put a Winston or some equally out-of-reality rod on my wish list for
Christmas, but a new lathe is calling out to me in stronger voice.
I send my best wishes for a New Year brimming with the love of those
around you, peace and security and most of all your good health.
