We had a very nice one here is Essex.  Early with just the immediate family.  Really relaxed and enjoyed each other’s company.

Peter Dodge stopped by in the early afternoon.  He hadn’t seen the shop yet.  We haven’t seen each other for quite a while, so it was really good to catch up with him.  I can’t believe we’ve known each other for over 40 years!

Afternoon and evening with Bonnie’s family.  Nice dinner, gathering and fun/spirited Yankee swap.  Meredith won out with the home-made beer!

Yesterday was a really busy day in the shop.  Spent about 6 hours cutting carbon fiber parts for making Dodge Ski Boots.  Made enough uppers and lowers for 12 pairs of boots.  Doesn’t sound like much until you realize it takes 8 pieces per pair!  That’s a lot of work on the bandsaw to cut the pieces from the flat material.

Today I will be starting to mold some of those parts and doing some assembly for some 255s.

Busy tomorrow with at least one racy visitor.  Will update you afterwards.

Dodge the raindrops today.
