    I've had a couple of those tables Joe, and they're very nice. Just a heads up, the veneer on them is very thin. So, if you're going to strip and sand it, be prepared to lose the veneer in a few places. They're not solid wood surfaced, unfortunately.

    Candace,

    Thanks for the heads up. I will be very gentle when I get to it. I'm going to try to use a no sand type stripper.
    So maybe I can keep it to a minimum.

    Joe, thanks for showing your pictures of your trip to Indy. I like to take pictures on the road, so it seems so good to find someone else that does it too. A lot of my pictures are of north west of Indy on the way to Chicago. I am intrigued with the wind turbines north of Lafayette. I call them 'my windmills.' It sounds like you had a great time shopping with Miriam and also in her shop. Too bad she won't let you show pictures of it too.

    So Janis when are you coming?

    Miriam's right next door to you in Indiana... I'd have been there by now, kids in tow!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    NE Ohio is a bit of a trip with kids in tow. I do have a big fenced yard though... Keeps the GKs out of the neat freak old lady neighbor's yard.

    Hahaha...a trip to the grocery store is a bit of a trip with three kids in tow. Believe it or not I do know my geography...although you wouldn't know it from the way I type here. Sheesh. LOL*** I should say, I wish you were a few CITIES closer! Once my youngest (16 months) is a little bit bigger I can leave her with Daddy for a short trip. Before she was born I was able to go on a four day quilt retreat...oh that was so much fun...time flies it won't be long.

    I bet you would!!! Hahahaha I would too if I were working. I'm home now until the youngest gets into school, so unfortunately at the moment I'm at the mercy of a budget and gas prices are outrageous. Pooh.
