My wife has a cousin in Heidelberg.

I trust you enjoyed your stay.

Certainly a beautiful city.

We enjoyed ours in the past as well.

My Dress White uniform ready for tonight's Navy Ball, celebrating the Navy's 238th birthday.



Tonight is most likely the last time I'll wear this uniform on active duty

But doing the Navy Ball Diego Garcia-style will be really cool

Thank you. I currently have black wall tires on it and when I find the right Cinelli bars I'll rewrap the bars in white tape with red stitching, to bring out the red decals. It's a 1972 Schwinn Paramount P13, there's another pic of it in the Paramount information thread.

Nice work.

Intended use?

Bikes?

Boats?

None of my business?

Thanks. Nah...just to help clear out garage over-stuffment. Garden stuff, lumber, some tools, etc.
Long, bare wall in first photo will have a narrow greenhouse sitting on the pad. If I can find one that fits.

Well then, that's what I need as well.

Seems our yard is turning into a giant vegetable garden.

We would love to have a greenhouse and garden storage area like yours.

Again, your shed looks to be very nicely crafted.

Very nice! I love the combination of clapboard and shingle, so New England-y!

Wanna stay in Somerville with us for a few weeks and build us one? Free use of bikes and unlimited riding companion time while you're here!

Thanks, guys - it's been quite a ride the last 25+ years

Scott: thanks for the sneak-previews; that's pretty spiffy for garden-tool storage!
