Caught Monica a mother's day gift while repairing pipes in garden.

Nothing worse when you're in the dark and you have fungus in your enlarger lens. Had to do a quick tear down of my 105mm El Nikkor to clean it up.

That one—when she looks at you, you can see she's working things out.

An odd event to find on my paint shelf: a fairly new can of Rustoleum clear seems to have formed a leak, which formed a semi-solid Romancing the Stone sort of gem.

The chicken's apparently are digging that early spring sunshine.

Random art in the house: My Favorite Things, S. Feves, 1988. Print on hardboard with music box.

From one of our random book shelves: an untitled printing plate with unknown people. Believe we picked this up from a local artist about 10 years back and still haven't printed it.

The joys of a fresh Starrett handsaw blade ready to finish out a couple projects.

The ol' heart has been racing of late (stress, anxiety, who knows), so I'm now spot checking with a monitor to see the state of, well, me. Not a great way to start my week.

Stacking rocks with Monica and kids on a crisp winter day, I give you my finest dinosaur attempt.

The endangered riparian brush rabbit, which Monica helped protect as a field biologist at ESRP, made it on a stamp!

Storm 1, Justin's UPS 0.

Last few years, seems I lose a UPS at least once a year to a storm.

Stripping a Microtek scanner (which I think my folks bought in 1995) and the repairable nature of the components in this is quite the throwback. Going to get yet more mileage out this hardware because of it.

Making custom ends for squishy circuit kits for drop and dash teaching packs for Monica's class.

A lot of original block prints to start cutting matte for. Not a single one of those pieces cost more than $50 USD, yet they're exquisite and best of all, direct interaction with the artist.

If you can, support an artist locally, at a fair, Etsy, wherever.

Not my Leica, but rather the gift I gave my wife for the holidays. Truly a lovely useful tool for a biologist of great skill.

After a bit of bumpy road and much digging I've got Mastodon 3.3.0 running. Time to update that old blog post! 😂

A fire glows in the shop with isolated glee. Happy Holidays wonderful people, stay safe!
