    Some of you may remember that I lost my old shop to a grass fire a few years ago.

    Well, thanks to the many members such as Perca (Doug), Copper, Den007, and Steelheader, and others, I was able to replace several manuals, tools, and paints. I would especially like to thank Rick Krane for the sincere and encouraging phone call that we had the day after my fire loss.
    It took me longer to get than I would have liked but they just delivered my new 12 x 20 shop/mancave!! No more mounting fish in my spare bathroom!
    I would like to post some pics over the next few weeks as I finish the inside. I have been given a nice 8 ft stainless steel counter top and sink by a plumber friend of mine and I plan on building a real nice paint booth also. I'm really excited to be getting back into a nice place to do my fish.

    Thanks everyone! My old little shop was quite cramped at 8 x 16 I think. My new one is 12 x 20. Fixing to start insulating and wiring this weekend!
