have a peek at the photo gallery at the china cabinet that I reworked. I said I would post a pic. It was a different week this last few days. Still awaiting relatives of our late friend to arrive. His life will be celebrated 1 week from tomorrow. Rec'd some kind words from Grove r and other good folks from this board. Thankyou all. Dan from AB

hi dan ,just got back in , fencing in the rain yuck. wow that cabinet sure turned out nice i remember when you were starting it , we were talking about it, hard to belive it is the same piece of furniture, nice job , you can be proud of your workmenship on that,in the first picture i see a car in the garage is that a 66 pontiac parriesen ragtop?(i can hope). Also did they find out what happened to your friend i assume it was natural causes , its hard when you lose somebody that you know and are close to, never gets easier, hang in there dan.

Howdy Toolman, yes , its a '66 rag with the factory 4-spd muncie,its not a show piece car but its a fun car.About the other business I understand there was an autopsy but nothing can be let out until the next of kin arrive and get involved.The irony is at our civic celebrations July 1st-04, the gentleman was voted Citizen of the Year by the C of C in town due to his volunteerism within the community,help on the library board etc,so he was paraded in a '57 Ford retractable,article in the local paper,given a civic dinner with the mayor,MLA and MP and other dignitaries. All I can say is that he left with a ton of respect from his adopted community.He mentioned in his speech that when he first arrived he planned on a 1 yr. stay, it turned into 30 yrs. Dan

Dan, that cabinet is absolutely beautiful! You really did do a great job on it.

Thanks Maggie,it looks like work but at the time its more like fun.Of course the end justifies the means.I'll tell you a little secret,I found it at a garage sale last fall in town for a 20$ bill, but the better half likes it and has some of her collectables in it and it has since become part of our home.Dan
