Gee's quilters

The world famous Gee's quilters were showing (and quilting) upstairs. 


Charley Lucas

great fun sharing the showing with the Charlie Lucas.


Headed north

Quite efficient catching up on blog posts during our drive home


The governor

seemed impressed with the Phil Campbell fund raising efforts


My gosh!

I really didn't believe that they would display this dyslexic furniture artists pic permanently in the new museum. This is the only area of the entire exhibit that's - well , maybe questionable. . . .


Structurally sound?

top priority is getting our finishing room, and all woodworking machinery up and going again.

just hoping these 4" walnut posts and beams can carry the weight. ;) 


Phil Campbell table - moving from one Museum to another

We had to fight Libby Watts Jordan, Frank Lloyd Wright/Rosenbaum home/museum director to "borrow" the Phil Campbell table for the weekend.  It's been on display at the Rosenbaum Museum gift shop.  It will be on display at the Museum of Alabama's grand opening ceremonies in Montgomery all day Saturday.

Please come join in on the celebrations.  9am to 5pm Montgomery.

Recycled shelving

We are kinda bonkers over recycling around here.  Now this one I'm getting a kick out of.  16 or so sets of shelving came from one of our local huge success stories, Books-a-million.  I've had them for years, but just now putting them to some pretty great use.  Hopefully their super success vibe will spread up here with us in Lexington.

Great to be back to work

So good getting back to work after the freeze out.  Our friends from the North get a huge kick out of just how a little snow and ice totally shuts us down down here.  I have to admit, we have no clue how to handle it.  Well, other than ramming into the car or nearest pole.

Still haven't gotten our dust collector back up on it's feet.  We'll regroup and try again today.

Great Cypress Creek Raft Race song, from mid '80's

I just ran across this song/poem, and thought it was a perfect venue begin sharing the word for our  GRCRR memorial paddle.  It will be July 19, "bout a quarter till nine", and take place at the location on Cox Creek Parkway where the race began for years.

If you wrote this song in the '80's, let me know and you'll win one of the original bumper stickers.  If you know what the last verse (that i didn't include here) was, let me know and you win one of the original award pins from the race.
