Well we are already thirty one days into the New Year and I am wondering where all those days went? If time continues at this speed we will be buying Christmas presents again in a few weeks.
The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective. ~G.K. Chesterton
The new year came with a new piece of equipment for the shop to help make things go a little faster. A way, we hope for us to start afresh and be effective.
|Our new arrival from Italy finally made it off the trailer and into the shop. It is even BIGGER than BARNEY!|
|Now how do we get it off the trailer and into the shop without damaging Matthew's new BIG box?!|
|A few generations of helping hands.|
|Our first full look at the new member of the family.|
|A few crow bars and some rollers....|
|slowly slowly slowly|
|What were we thinking?|
|Maybe a little superman impression will do the trick?|
|Finally ready for the unveiling.|
|I thought Christmas was in December!|
Speaking of entertainment never underestimate the value of a BIG box. I showed Matthew how to use the box cutter. Windows and doors magically emerged and kept him entertained all weekend long.
|A boy and his BIG BOX!! So much FUN!!|

Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man. ---Benjamin FranklinWe hope that we are better humans with the passing of this past year. I think we have grown and become even more aware of our challenges and weaknesses as well as our strengths. It is our true goal to be better, more loving people on this incredible planet and we will keep trying until we get it right.
