I think this will be my first French Friday. And dang, it came in the mail TODAY (Thursday)!!!!! I didn’t​ know if it would get it from France in time.

Screw those screws. I don’t have a bit for it and I almost broke the base trying to get it off with pliar and snips. The screw that holds it to the base is like most a pan type but this the triangle. I mentioned some unrepetable words trying to get it free from the base.

Leroy was here

Ok, so this last one is staged, but Sam did ask me to take a picture on the table, so after I had him stand behind it in frame looking on. Below is the picture he wanted me to take.although I cropped the tablet I’m using to post this out.
