    Very happy. No neighbors except for coyotees, bobcats and javelinas (-;
    We live on the reservation's edge in north Scottsdale. Wonderful dreamy area if you love the desert.

    Having lived in the desert most of my life, I never wanted to live anywhere else.

    As I'm sure you know, the desert in the south west in general and the area you're in specifically, can be an almost magical place at times, but the mushrooms taste funny, kinda bad actually.✌️
    Hope you and your family really enjoy the new place.

    Oh! Happy birthday!

    Thx.
    I will visit the MIM soon. They have ordered a Bone-I and we want to take photos when it goes on display.

    Hi preeb, nice project. I've also been trying for some time to obtain accurate information on this . I don't suppose I could be cheeky and ask for a copy of these plans.

    That's some real tidy jig work. I've found that veneered mdf works really nicely for jigs.

    Everytime I see pics of someone's place out in the desert I can't help but think about the film "Raising Arizona."

    It's WILD out there.
