Multiple paterns and colors.

Wood poles, clay lined fire pit, double wall interior using 1,000denier nylon(50" height/tan color). Dirt burm all the way around circumfrence for draft control.

Circular shaped objects fare well in storms/tornados. Farm corn cribs remain standing after tornados pass through, not all the time but most. All I can do is hope for the best. :D

I hope to get it done this year. ;)

More like a direct order from DAD, "You will reside in Seattle and thriftstore shop daily. When the garage is full, I will bring the RV up to free up some space....concentrate on camping gear, furniture, and "little guitars" :lol: :lol: :lol:

"little guitars"...PLEASE!Buy up all the little guitars you can find so I don't.The wife still doesn't appreciate the "ukulele upholstery" and it's spreading like wildfire from the wrap around couch to the other furniture. :o On the other hand..someone might be buying another one tonight. :mrgreen:He just got back from Hawaii too..sounds like he ran into a lot of "ukulele snobs" over there.. :roll: he doesn't know anything about them or what he might want and no one would bother to show him their instruments and explain them(size,type,strings,sound,materials,etc).Oh well..guess I'll have to...Once he picks one up here and strums it..he's a goner!SOLD! :lol:
People have been coming by for vintage ukes,picking mine up,and sobbing when they leave without one of mine.. :lol:
