Drove Elaine to the airport a few of weeks ago then headed to Wil & Jennie’s in JC, NJ for some lumber hefting. Arrrrrggg!!

later Wil & I busted up the pallet with sledges & lit a fire in their backyard pit, then Jennie brought out some Vietnamese & we chowed down. It’s gonna be a nice place — thanks JP for the photo!
