Hi Lowka53,

Very nice job on the clock It's is obvious you spend a lot of time on it!

Here is mine - Very very similar designs. Maybe from the same museum?

Well, How's everybody been? Long time no talk to. Things have been hectic around my house. But I'm back!! and I'm coming to the Gathering!!! YAY!!! I'll be bringing my 19 year old son who's actually redoing a '63 Starcraft. It's fiberglass but I won't hold that against him. I'll also bring my Mahlahini, "Time Well Wasted". My wife can't come cause she's going to D.C. Her loss. Believe though, she would rather come to the Gathering!! I'm coming in on Saturday. Be there around lunch or before. What can I bring? Let me know. Look forrward to hearing from you! Seeyasoon!
