Thank you veterans.

My cousin and I are friends on Facebook, we haven’t seen each other in “real life” since sometime in the mid ’70s. Back then I spent my time riding motorcycles and swimming. Tim is a little younger and  he liked swimming. We never stayed in touch and while I was riding motorcycles he got a PHD at Columbia.
On Veterans Day he posted this picture on our Grandfather in his Navy Uniform from WWI. Our Grandpa Law died when I was young and I never knew he was in the Navy. Thanks Tim for this knowledge, thanks Veterans for protecting our rights including the ability to share our thoughts and beliefs in this world of social media and instant communication…and thanks to whoever thought up “sexting.”

We spent the weekend cleaning and rearranging the Orange shop to accomodate some winter projects. Lori’s going to finish the TR25W. She got started on it last winter but didn’t get any real traction. She’s spent a little time learning about electrical systems and made some decent headway the other night.

This Bates jacket and Yamaha YM-1 are a good match, they’re both too small and they smell like smoke! 

Much sought after and highly desired BMW drill press.
Tonight is Enchilada night. The chile sauce and beef have been simmering for hours and as soon as I finish this post I’ll be making tortillas! You’ll have to wait to see the finished product.
Instant Enchilada mix: Fire roasted Hatch chiles, masa for the tortillas, avocado (side dish), toasted pepitas, and dried anchos. Just add a carmelized onion, a couple pasillas, some jalapenos, your favorite meat and cook!  
This is the kind of stuff people complain about on Yelp. It’s not spaghetti sauce with cumin, it’s New Mexico style Red Chile sauce…it’s nasty!
