thanks for the support guys.

My great grandfather passed away a few weeks ago and I've just been super busy with the aftermath. I've been at his house as much as possible trying to clean out all his old stuff and get everything squared away. So my schedule has been: work, work on cleaning grandpas house, sleep, wake up, repeat.

He was a bit like my father figure growing up. He built my first pinewood derby cars, he was an amazing woodworker.

He died at 88 years old and was a WWII veteran on the USS Essex.

The funeral was pretty neat. The navy came out and did the whole taps and folding of the flag ceremony. The 21 gun salute would have happened but the cemetary is right next to an airport so they weren't allowed to do it (maybe a 21 laser salute? God knows I have enough...).

So anyway, that's what I've been up to. Everything that hasn't been shipped out yet will be shipped out ASAP now that I have a few spare seconds to do so.

If anyone is interested, here is his Obituary:

Russell Bucy Obituary: Russell Bucy’s Obituary by the The Seattle Times.

(The "Jason Barr" in the obituary is me :p)

Thanks again for all your kind words.

:eek:
