Working on it. Hope you are doing fine. Haven't seen a thing from Gerry Masgai in a long time. I hope he's OK.

Ayup, Davey - good to hear from you again. You're right - lots of new names, but some of us old ones are still plugging away through the trolls and the bullshit.
Life's pretty good for me - just retired from the RAF and I'm woodworking full time now. Just finishing off 4 casement windows for a farm up the way. Rutland is full of quaint old houses - many of them older than the US! - and when a window rots, the owners can't just dive into the nearest Magnet Southerns and buy a new one. New planning laws came in recently which stipulated that windows, where possible had to be replaced like for like, so it's a ticket for a bespoke window producer to print money. However, as I've found, it's a job that gets old quite quickly, and I wouldn't want to make too many more, however profitable.
Glad to get your new URL. Been a while since I visited Sag Harbour, so I'll re-read the Tales and see if you've come up with any new ones.
BTW - how come you colonials can spell "harbour" correctly in connection with Sag Harbour, but fall in with that dickhead Webster and spell it "harbor" in most cases? Just a thought.....
And, no - haven't heard from Gerry in a long long time.
Lang may yer lum reek. Or so says I (to borrow a phrase!).

Thought it added a bit to the title. AND by the way many thanks to our own Larry J. for setting it all up for me. I can cork a seam but damned if I can do that HTML stuff!

Fine, old salt, 'cept for the humongous troll population here nowadays. How are you and Swimpal? Did you ever get the new pics up on the website?

Not in a coon's age.

David Fleming: You are fined $5 for not swearing. Be well!
P.S: Watch out for those 3 seashells.
(In case you're lost, "Be well!" was a key phrase in the Stallone/Snipes/Bullock movie "Demolition Man". You'll just have to watch the movie to find out about the shells. ;)

am using for not figuring out how to use you well written instructions, sigh. I have over 61 MB on Imagestation and the free web page amount from SBCGlobal is 10MB so there it is.

never answered my emails inquiring on the particulars. Hmmm, last I recall he was designing their retirement home for Eastern WA. state.

Now where do I send my $5? :-))

Gotcha. Carry on.

Maybe he was spirited away by Indians!

Aye be gar! Better.

Someone bang the drum on the old sea wall?
Trust you'll stop in more often and perhaps pass on some words of wisdom and some constructive critiqueing for a few newer newbie than yours truly.

Dave,
Been a long time since hearing from you. Sure missed it. Hopefully you will stick your head in a little more often.
As far as Gerald Masgai goes, I got an email from him April 10 of this year. Here is what he had to say when I asked why I hadn't seen him post in a long while -
"It's been several years! I still check in once in awhile just to see who is posting. The old hobby of making doors has turned into a full time endeavor.
I now manage the design division of the largest door manufacturing company on the west coast. The first project was to design a pair of doors 10 feet wide and fifteen feet tall, 3" thick and covered from top to bottom with beveled 1/4" plate glass mirrors. We had three different contractors working on the assembly which fit perfect the first time tried.
This year I hope to complete a computer aided design project to automate the design process. The program will enable our customers to pick parts from a menu and draw the plans for presentation, manufacturing and assembly. I hope to have a functional pilot up and running next month. (May 2003)
In another 8 months, I'm going to retire to our property up in Washington state where we are going to build our last home. The main reason I haven't been posting to the wreck is because I have been busy drafting the plans for our new home. I still have to complete the finish schedule and do a materials takeoff, then the plans will be ready to get a bid for labor. I'm going to purchase all of the materials from my company where I can get them at less than the Home Depot pays for their stock.
One of these days I am going to finish that article on how to build shutters. I think about it every time a new shutter project comes across my desk.
Take care of yourself, and thanks for thinking of me.
Jerry"
Hopefully hear from you soon,
Preston
