Yeah, I cleaned off about 3 ft of the bench prior to heading up to
Madison-Bouchville this past August and it's back to being 3 flats deep
at that end.  And the truck, well that is kind of my secondary storage
for stuff, since I don't have much in the way of uncluttered space in here.

There is a young guy down in Virginia that sells tools (he used to live
up in New York) that has been hauling some of my less desirable
accumulations out of here (to the tune of at least 10 12x12x8 Post
Office boxes full, plus a number of larger sized boxes) and it's barely
made a dent in the piles...

But I keep on keeping on.

rain and just raw)
