And the last pics as we left the place yesterday after a few days of work and fun with the Milos and Samcords during the eclipse GTG.

BTW, I'm proud to be the member attending on multiple region GTG's.. heh heh..

Looking good Bubba. Careful though, Chris might be over a lot using your shop!

Wow, that's quite a transformation.
The pictures made me remember watching my concrete being poured & all the fun I had with the crew. I was so glad I could take a few days off to see it happening. That was exciting.
Then the steel erectors showed up early one Monday morning. I woke up to the noise and I got to watch that happening for 3 1/2 days. Those 3 guys were so skilled and efficient that it was inspiring just to see they way they went about it, always in sync with each other so that they hardly needed to say anything.
I've never been happier.

Good for you, Walter! Its going to be fun watching you adjust to the stress of missing those Illinois taxes & regulations & the traffic.

No kidding, fleeing kommunism the second time. First time from Hungary back in 82 and now from Illinoistan.

Wow. I've known a couple people who fled Hungary back in the day, like in the 50's or so. Bad scene.

Yes indeed, bad scene. Socialism or communism is not much fun. Too bad not everybody realizes it around here. But that's an off topic thread I may have one of these days.
