    I'm very happy to know that that Texas Sotol is getting spread around. Good luck with your house repairs. I will be excited to see your hand drill success! I'll be praying for your tennis elbow to heal quickly!

    That smile is the best part Most excellent!
    Good work!
    If I were to make one suggestion, it'd be put some grease on that top block. that is burning calories that would be better spent on the other end of the stick.
    and practice, practice, practice!!

    Good Job! I suppose I will have to continue working on it. I normally get to annoyed to continue trying.
