Let the Weekend Begin - Off to Spring Carlisle

Lots of Cars for Sale at Spring Carlisle

6 Foot Tall Carlisle Rooster for Sale

What an absolutely perfect start to the weekend! I headed off to Spring Carlisle with a couple of good friends to see if I could part with some of my hard earned cash. Carlisle was packed as usual but I was able to find a few good bargains on some tools and supplies. Many of the vendors I purchased from threw in freebies to sweeten the deal (you can never go wrong offering Bubba a free hat!). As much as I wanted it, the rooster did not follow me home. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I had his sister for lunch as a sandwich. You really need a couple of days to get to all the vendors but one day of walking up and down the hills is about all I can handle. At least I went home smiling.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
