  • Lost a great friend the other day

    Sitka was a wolf hybrid that came from Alaska (Sitka). She lived with us for 19 great years. She loved and raised many younger dogs and she love children as well...always setting down and allowing kids to pet her. For the past 6 months, my wife would fix a special meal for her every day and we would hand feed her...she had lost most teeth on one side of her mouth, so you would feed her on one side and move the bowl around to the other side and catch what fell out, and then start all over. She would always lay in the kitchen so you would have to step over her....yes, we are still stepping over her.... She is over the rainbow playing with all her friends awaiting for us to join her one day....she will be missed.

    RIP sweet Sitka. Be sure to have a romp with my Ripper, Snowball, Lil Bro and Teddy, who are at the Bridge waiting.

        Sorry to hear of your loss. Sitka sounds like she was quite the dog.

        Our DD-cat just passed a few weeks ago at 16. She'll give Sitka a good chase up in the rainbows.

        If you need or want somebody to talk to about this there's a good support chat at (like our chat it requires Java so I can't get in, but my wife's been a regular)

              I'm so sorry your Sitka has gone to the bridge. You will have a ghost at your heels for a long time.

                              From Alaska to Hawaii, what a transition !
                              Sorry to hear of your loss, I know how tough it is to take the loss of a beloved pet. Like people, there is no replacement possible.

                                How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                                The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                                I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                                Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                                If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                                Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
