I'm a fairly boring person, retired after too many years working in the computer software trade. I did get to do very minor work on very large, glamorous projects (over 20 space shuttle missions), but every thing I ever did there is totally obsolete and forgotten.

All my life I have loved to build things: Tinker Toys and Erector Sets as a kid, bunk beds and jungle gyms as a dad, and always "we need more storage" as a husband. Those things are mostly gone too.

We retired to a farming community and built our "toes up" house on a plot I call "Three Acre Woods Adult Day Care and Detention Center". Ruled, of course, by The Warden. I think she loves me, but not as much as her dogs. Anyway, I got a bay of the garage for my very own workshop. The shop is partitioned off from the cars and is 23x12ft with 10ft ceiling. There is a standard garage door at one end and a 5ft French door at the other. The French doors lead to a breezeway between the house and the garages. I can make as much noise and dust as I want!

Now I'm going to try my hand at making something that might last. First thing, of course, is workshop furniture.

Hi Ken, Welcome to LJs and congrats on your toes up retirement center. Hope you get some good years in the garage shop.

The space shuttle program went a long ways towards making America a great nation. Even a small role in that gig is something to be proud of.

Happy Trails,
