My cup runneth over! Last Thursday I bought a few project cars
at a toy show, and since then the mail carrier has arrived several times. Remember that this is the season for working in my wife's flowers and trying to get the yard into to a good summer start. And with all that, just take a look at my work desk as of this hour:

#1- A Brooklin Studebaker with a broken, crushed windshield, now with glue drying after this morning's surgery. Lots more to come.

#2- A '46 Ford sedan by Jedo 43 with restoration just starting by fitting and re-fitting wheels; lots more to come.

#3- Just arrived in today's mail. The body for a Provence Moulage Ferrari 250 GT that looks perfect and just fits in with a broken parts car that I posted here a week or so ago. Many, many thanks to Fred Lewis!

Somehow, I thought things were supposed to slow down as I grow older. Or maybe I should give thanks that my future looks bright and I just don't have enough time left over to feel sorry for my fading abilities. Enjoy!

And this is what the desk really looks like:

And if you think that looks bad, don't even try to imagine my work shop!!
