Wood Recovery 11-19-2017

We got a call from Mark at the tree lot this afternoon saying he had a pallet of some nice clean short 2x4s at the tree lot that he got with the tree delivery and were extras.  Could we use them?  I called Danny who jumped in the big blue truck and headed to town.  It was just like Mark said - a pallet full!  Thanks Mark for thinking of us!  Thanks Danny for picking it up and moving it to the barn!

Mini Toy Workshop at Rock's Shop 11-18-2017

A mini-toy workshop was held today at Rick's shop to do the final steps to complete the toy Tractors.  One hundred and two tractors were completed and packed and moved to inventory.  Due to the size of the shop, attendance was limited. 

Attending today:  Rick Weisbeck, Ken Moran, Jerry Hood, Danny Green, and Bob and Kathie Buchanan.

Ken Moran showed off his prototype toy Dachshund.  The group decided this is a toy that should be added to the list for 2018 toys.

Toys left to finish for the 2017:  none.

Toys packaged for Inventory today: 105                    Subtotal to date:    2,535
