I have bought a new toy!

I've been saving up for it for quite a while but hadn't got all the needed cash stashed away yet.  Even though I couldn't really afford it, neither could I afford not to.  So this morning I splurged and ordered it.  FedEx will deliver in one to seven days.



Yes, boys and girls, it's a stainless steel rock saw!  I am very excited.  My old one was purchased used more than 20 years ago, and it has simply worn out.  It's time for a new one.  Maybe now I will be able to diminish the TBS mountain (To Be Sliced) along with the TBR mountain this summer.


There are almost 4,000 titles on the K4PC.  The rocks are beyond counting. . . .
