Bending Brackets

I had to bend up some brackets. Nothing fancy.

Vee block in the arbor press.

It was a little hard to line up the square bar.


4 brackets.

Spring Things

It's spring.

I don't know why they are wearing gloves, frogs don't cause warts.

The frogs love the abandoned hot tub.


Down by the duck pond at Starker Arts Park. It was a bit muddy and Henry fell on his rear.

Feeding the ducks.

One of the variety of ducks.

Max enjoyed it.

I found a neat free version of the Basic programming language, Just Basic.
I wrote my first Windows GUI. It was tremendously exciting.

Kids and Water

We took the kids to Martin Luther King park in Corvallis last week.

The parking lot had an odd safety feature. To prevent you from hitting the rails in the parking lot...

They put a moat in front of it.

The kids playing on the swings. Remember doing that when you were a kid? I do.

Henry is sopping wet.

We took a walk along the path which had a stream running alongside. The kids stopped often to get even more drenched.

Last Saturday was Max's birthday, Felice made a fish piƱata for the festivities.

One of my Taig lathe guys made this lifesize Bender (from Futurama). He's putting up posts showing the construction on his new blog.
