How is everyone getting on with the lockdowns and panic shoppers out there? Pretty much business as usual around here. The kids are home for at least a month. Other than that I go to work every day so not much has changed for me.

No toilet paper or vitamin C in the stores. Some closing early now and drive thru fast food is drive thru only. The Border Patrol closed the borders at midnight, Mexico and Canada, not sure what that will cause over here. I have a brother that lives in Maryland and he said that the National Guard is on stand by at the stadium. I hope this doesn't mean Marshal Law is next.

I am surprised the forum is so quiet but with everyone staying home these days.     What happened to all the builders?

I've able to get more time in the shop, but that means I have more opportunity to screw things up. so far I halve only had learning difficulties on the cartridge carrier, but that is only because I forgot the perils of climb milling on my manual machine. my learning curve was completed on the third attempt.

I check in daily to see some progress on others builds. I’m anxiously awaiting the medical centers to reopen so I can get my cortisone shot in my back. I have a pinched nerve that has been a real bitch for the last 2 months. I was one day away from my appointment when they closed everything down.

Have you tried hanging upside down with one of those teeter things? Stretching the vertebrae actually worked for me about ten years ago. It took me about 15 minutes to transition from lying down to a standing up position when my pinched nerve got my attention that day. The only thing more painful was a kidney stone traveling from the right kidney to my bladder. Not sure where it is now, but I hope that I don't have to pee that sucker out one day. :-|

Yea, lucky kid to have a teacher like Jerry !       I tried talking Jerry into adopting me so I could get some free lessons,  I got some lessons but no adoption.

Thanks for the Kudos guys
Your lucky the adoption didn’t go through.
You would be taking care of an 90 year old man
in 2030 telling you all about the 1940’s

The second Yoda bust will be finished today.
The first try looked like Yoda lost the fight
