And today I got a huge grin on my face.

I was driving by the welding/fabrication shop and I noticed that somebody has moved some Big Ass Pipe into the staging area.

It's happening....

O Fortuna
velut luna
statu variabilis,
semper crescis
aut decrescis;
vita detestabilis
nunc obdurat
et tunc curat
ludo mentis aciem,
egestatem,
potestatem
dissolvit ut glaciem.


Great news, can't wait till construction starts :)

This one isn't a toy. It's a laboratory tool.

"Toy" INTERSECTION "laboratory tool" is not necessarily an empty set.

I very much agree with Hotwired. It does need to be cleaned. I know this isn't at the top of your mind D_Hall, but what color are you gonna paint it?

Yes, it will be painted. Most likely color is gray. Not horribly exciting, but I work for the Navy; gray paint is easy to get. ;)
