On that note, there is no way that I would have the vision to make a painting like your "Opera".

:lol:  DL, I think you are confusing Icarus with me, which is understandable, since we both have wings — mine are on my feet and helmet, whereas Icarus has homemade ones of feathers and wax on his arms.

Hmmmm? I think he means your painting.

Perhaps I'm confused — I though he was addressing Icarus!

Made a mount for my belt sander, clamped down while in use. :)

Nice! Is that 40 grit paper on there?

That will be useful, Tank. Don't you find the days are too short after retirement?

I've gotten to be quite the slacker finally, mostly because the arthritis in my feet cuts into my work day. I talked to my family doctor yesterday and it appears that elective surgery may be back in operation (so to speak) and I may be able to get my left foot worked on again, hopefully with better effect. I am working on putting white PVC lattice on top of the pergola in our back yard. It makes interesting grid patterns on the wood. I'll take a picture tomorrow, aimed towards the sky. I can take about an hour on my feet and then have to take a break. My butt is starting to hurt from all the sitting. Can't sit or stand for extended periods. :( I guess it's time to go lie down and go to sleep.  ;D

I can just imagine how frustrating your situation is, because I suffered similarly with my left hip before I had the successful replacement.

Yes that is 40grit. I also have 80 and 120.

Yes! It's daft that I don't have enough hours in the day to do nothing!   ;D

You'll have to buy a blow up bed to take with you to lay down on whenever you need to :grin:

Well, you probably deserve a good rest much more than I do. I must be honest and say I was never the hardest-working person.
